Estimating Economic Values of Meadows and Grazings using Hedonic Housing Modeling and GIS
Abstract: This paper uses the hedonic housing model to assess
economic values to high value meadows and grazings located in rural
settings. The hypothesis is that residential purchase prices include
premiums for properties located in the surrounding areas of such
environments. The dataset consist of 7565 property transactions sold during
the period 1977-2007. The main findings are that houses located in the
immediate surrounding area of these lands were on average 2.6 per cent more
expensive which implies that the size of the premium approximately equals
€3200 for these properties.
