Abstract [en]

This paper analyses determinants of agricultural land prices in Sweden with a particular focus on location-specific factors. An asset-pricing model is used to decompose agricultural land prices into expected returns from land in its current agricultural use and expected returns from its potential use. The model is estimated in a cross regional context where explanatory factors relate to regional variations in land productivity, agricultural support payments and urbanising influences. Results indicate that both agricultural and non-agricultural factors are influential determinants to the price of agricultural land. Estimating marginal effects across the distribution of the dependent variable, non-agricultural factors are shown to be more important in regions that have high agricultural land prices, whereas, income support to farmers in the form of the decoupled single farm payment is shown to be most influential in regions with low agricultural land prices.

Dieses Papier analysiert Determinanten von agrarwirtschaftlichen Landpreisen mit einem besonderen Fokus auf standort-spezifischen Faktoren. Ein asset-pricing Modell wird verwendet um agrarwirtschaftliche Preise in erwartete Erträge von der tatsächlichen Nutzung und der potenziellen Nutzung zu zerlegen. Das Modell wird im inter-regionalen Kontext geschätzt mit erklärenden Faktoren hinsichtlich der regionalen Variationen von agrarwirtschaftlicher Landproduktivität, Subventionen und städtischen Regionen in Beziehung gesetzt werden. Die Resultate zeigen dass sowohl agrarwirtschaftliche wie auch nicht-agrarwirtschaftliche Faktoren entscheidende Determinanten fuer den Preis sind. Anhand der marginalen Effekten zeigt sich dass agrarwirtschaftliche Faktoren in Gemeinden mit hohen Preisen entscheidend sind, wogegen in Gemeinden mit niedrigen Preisen agrarwirtschaftliche Subventionen der wichtigste Einflussfaktor ist.

Abstract [en]

This thesis includes an introductory chapter and four individual papers. The papers are held together by concepts associated with price formation in real estate markets, differentiated goods and the local character of land and housing markets. The first two papers focus on the markets for land and agricultural property and the two succeeding studies on housing markets. The first study examines regional variations of Swedish agricultural land prices. The associated empirical model follows the form of earlier literature in testing the influence of expected returns from the current agricultural use of land and the potential for non-agricultural use on prices. The use of market transacted land and the inclusion of decoupled income support to farmers, among a set of agricultural and non-agricultural factors, distinguishes this study from earlier empirical work.

The second paper relates to the first by its focus on decoupled income support, but here the analysis extends to the micro level and to the study of price formation in the market for agricultural property. The study applies a spatial multilevel model to study variations in price determinants across and within local and regional markets.

The third paper is devoted to the analysis of housing prices and their relation to open landscape amenities. The spatial analysis employs two geographical databases containing single-family home sales and preserved open spaces. In order to address the local character of urban housing markets and intraurban heterogeneity in amenity valuations the study applies a geographically weighted regression approach.

The last paper focuses on the market for second homes with a particular emphasis on urban-rural interrelations. The paper is motivated by a growing demand for natural amenities and by the awareness that urban areas are becoming increasingly attractive markets for second homes.
