Hedonic Pricing Model for Real Property Valuation via GIS - A Review

Open access


Hedonic pricing models in real property valuation have been frequently applied in many research studies and projects since it was introduced by Rosen in 1974. The development of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the recent decades has gradually supports the usage of hedonic model in the spatial data pricing model studies. Beside the basic advantages of GIS to position properties in terms of their geographic coordinates, it has the capabilities of dealing with reasonable amount of data, and wide choices of analysis that make it powerful tool to facilitate the building and implementation of the hedonic models within its framework. Many studies have employed GIS in real property valuation in their present work and for the future prediction. This paper reviews the works of literature on the GIS applications in the real property valuation employing the hedonic pricing models.
