model is able to take into account the main distinctive features of the housing market, thus generating an upward sloping Beveridge curve.  ...  As opposed to a recent criticism (according to which a model à la Pissarides inherently generates a downward sloping Beveridge curve), this short theoretical paper shows that a baseline search-and-matching  ...  In the search model developed by Ortego-Marti and Gabrovski [12] , when sellers post more vacancies in the market, they make it easier for buyers to find a home.  ...

THE HOME SELLING PROBLEM: THEORY AND EVIDENCE

Antonio Merlo, François Ortalo-Magné, John Rust
2015 International Economic Review  
The optimal selling strategy consists of an initial list price with subsequent weekly decisions on how much to adjust the list price until the home is sold or withdrawn from the market.  ...  The solution also yields a sequence of reservation prices that determine whether the homeowner should accept bids from potential buyers who arrive stochastically over time with an expected arrival rate  ...  Here a match is defined as a buyer who makes an offer on the home.  ...

Cream Skimming and Information Design in Matching Markets

Gleb Romanyuk, Alex Smolin
2018 Social Science Research Network  
The platform designs what buyer information the sellers observe before deciding to form a match.  ...  Short-lived buyers arrive to a platform over time and randomly match with sellers. The sellers stay at the platform and sequentially decide whether to accept incoming requests.  ...  (Optimality) For all y and every type-y seller, σ (·, y) is an optimal strategy given the request rate β A and an information policy λ.  ...

An equilibrium analysis of trading across multiple double auction marketplaces using fictitious play

Bing Shi, Enrico H. Gerding, Nicholas R. Jennings
2016 Electronic Commerce Research and Applications  
Then, for perfectly complementary goods, only buyers with high values bid in multiple marketplaces and buyers with low values enter no marketplaces.  ...  We do this for different trading environments (isolated, single-home, multi-home and hybrid) and different types of goods (independent, substitutable and complementary).  ...  They show that, in the case of one buyer and one seller, an equilibrium solution exists where the offers of the buyer and the seller are monotonic in the respective reservation prices (types).  ...

Can Tightness in the Housing Market Help Predict Subsequent Home Price Appreciation? Evidence from the U.S. and the Netherlands

Paul E. Carrillo, Erik R. de Wit, William D. Larson
2012 Social Science Research Network  
Individual records are used to construct a quarterly home price index, an index that measures seller's bargaining power, and (quality adjusted) home sale probabilities.  ...  Theoretical insights from a stylized search-and-matching model illustrate that such indicators can be associated with subsequent home price appreciation.  ...  Home Sells in Less than Two Weeks  ...

On the Friedman Rule in Search Models with Divisible Money

Aleksander Berentsen, Guillaume Rocheteau
2003 Contributions in Macroeconomics  
Buyers cannot obtain the full return that an additional unit of money provides to the match, which makes the purchasing power of money inefficiently low in equilibrium.  ...  Consequently, even though the Friedman rule maximizes the purchasing power of money, it fails to generate the first-best allocation of resources unless buyers have all the bargaining power.  ...  There is an exogenous risk of a breakdown of the negotiation each time an o er has been rejected. This breakdown risk di ers for sellers and buyers.  ...
