Abstract

This thesis examines whether foreclosed properties sold by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) sell for the same price as properties which have similar characteristics. A hedonic price model is employed to observe changes in sales prices related to housing characteristics within a sample of homes from Las Vegas, Nevada. The results show HUD properties and the properties of houses in close proximity to HUD-sold properties sell for significantly less than similar houses located elsewhere in the county. However, HUD properties do not sell for less than their neighbors.
