  • This paper provides a formal analysis on a well-known issue of the housing market - observable transaction prices are a biased indication of the true market condition if significant numbers of listed properties are delisted without sale. We provide a closed-form formula to identify and correct such pricing bias. The model can help market participants and policy makers to form less biased views of the true state of the housing market, especially during the down cycles. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
