Community choices and housing demands: a spatial analysis of the southern Appalachian highlands


This paper examines housing demand using an integrated approach that combines residential decisions about choices of community in the Southern Appalachian region with the application of a Geographic Information System (GIS). The empirical model infers a distinctive heterogeneity in the characteristics of community choices. The results also indicate that socio-economic motives strongly affect urban housing demands while environmental amenities affect those of rural housing demand.
