Banking on housing ? speculating on the role and relevance of housing wealth in Britain.

Smith, S. J. (2005) 'Banking on housing ? speculating on the role and relevance of housing wealth in Britain.', Project Report. Durham University, Durham.


This paper contains a round-up of evidence and opinion concerning the asset value of owner occupied homes. It is based on a wide range of recent literature, but is offered primarily as a ‘think-piece’. It is therefore selective rather than exhaustive; suggestive rather than definitive; provocative rather than prescriptive. It provides an account of the changing character of home ownership in Britain, paying particular attention to the individual and systemic risks that may be associated with this. The views expressed are those of the author.

Item Type:Monograph (Project Report)
Additional Information:Paper prepared for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
Keywords:Home ownership, Asset value.
