Abstract

To verify the existence of intracommunity spillovers, the paper shows that home-owners in England and Wales are prepared to pay a substantial permium to avoid educationally poor neighbourhoods. One interpretation of this educational elasticity is that it estimates the social benefits of education in the local community. A hedonic approach is used, paying careful attention to the endogeneity of neighbourhood characteristics in a property price model
