Central theme
We welcome contributions on whatever currently is the interest of those who feel at home under the heading Housing Economics. We want to provide an arena for discussion also of the technical aspects of modelling and econometric aspects of the work of housing economists.

Activities and output in recent years
The Housing Economics group is an informal network that meets irregularly in an ad hoc-fashion. One of the recurring activities has been the organization of workshops at the annual ENHR conferences.

In 2018 we met in Uppsala at the annual conference. All in all about 20 researchers participated. Nice papers and good discussions. We were glad to see that the group contained a nice mixture of continuity and new faces.
