内容摘要:This paper identifies theeffect of international travel costs on local housing markets. Theinternational travel cost is measured by whether an American city has launcheda nonstop flight to a Chinese city. Using difference-in-differences models, wefind that after an American airport connected with China via a nonstop flight,the monthly number of Chinese homebuyers in a county nearby the airportincreased by about one; local housing prices at the county level on averageincreased by $5900 (4%). We also find a significant decrease in the number oflocal non-Chinese homebuyers, suggesting a displacement effect in the localhousing markets by out-of-town homebuyers. Our findings imply that thespatial equilibrium model based on inter-city migration within a country can belargely generalized to international migration. Our study also contributes tothe literature on the economics of air travel and out-of-town homebuyers.
