The empirical literature on the effects of regulation on housing prices varies widely in quality of research method and strength of result. The empirical results provide strong support for the theoretical model concerning how these three submarkets interact.

The results also suggest that household income and construction costs are the most important factors causing housing prices, rents and land prices to vary between metropolitan areas.

Environmental laws can impact the supply of land, a key input in the production of housing. Laws can also change the prices of other inputs into the construction of housing (for example, lumber) and can affect the supply of housing in that way.

Canada has some of the best housing data in the world. National Bank releases a monthly house price index composite of 11 cities.
