This article assesses the relative housing price effects of neighborhood characteristics and accessibility in Nanjing, China. A crucial finding is that the effect of job accessibility on house price varies depending upon the specific sector of employment. However, housing proximity to heavy industries has a spatially nonlinear effect: negative in close proximity, but positive at a larger distance. Second, when we control for job accessibility, access to public transport has an added positive effect. Finally, neighborhood “quality” (defined in terms of nearby amenities) is also relevant, but far less than access to service employment
