Abstract: 

In this paper, we use a stochastic dynamic general equilibrium model to study the effects of market psychology, in particular, “keeping up with the Zhangs” on house price behavior in China. Our Bayesian estimation confirms that “keeping up with the Zhangs” exists in the Chinese housing market. We find significant effects of “keeping up with the Zhangs” on housing prices. Our simulation results show that compared to a model without “keeping up with the Zhangs”, a one standard deviation increase in the housing demand shock can lead to about 34% greater response of housing prices in our benchmark model. We show that the implementation of a property tax can curb the soaring housing prices.
