Recent modelling developments in the housing economics literature are reviewed and drawn on to construct a national housing model for Singapore. An econometric approach was adopted and a system of equations was formulated to explain the behaviour of the private owner-occupation housing market in Singapore. The model is estimated on quarterly data over the period 1975-1995. The estimation and simulation results are good. On the basis of the results it is concluded that Central Provident Funds policies on promoting home ownership, directed at lowering the cost of housing capital, exert a strong influence on housing demand and house prices. Finally, some areas for future improvements in data construction and model specification are identified.
