Abstract [en]

The study suggests a clarified concept of housing satisfaction, based on a review of behavioral literature. This concept relates housing satisfaction to aspirations, expectations, and housing im provement. It also indicates that housing satisfaction may change over time. Evidence for this concept was sought from a group of new home purchasers. A survey was taken first within a year of purchase and then 18 months later. Correlation analysis, linear regression, and tests for signif icant differences were used. The evidence indicated that housing satisfaction may be explained by realization of housing aspirations, fulfillment of expectations, and achievement of housing im provement. Cost of the house had a significant positive correlation with housing satisfaction. No significant decline in housing satisfaction over time was found.
