Although there is a well-established body of literature examining how water quality impacts home values, it has yet to be used in analyses of regional and nationwide water quality regulations. Property value studies combine housing choices with data on water quality to estimate benefits in a statistical model. This webinar will present an overview of the hedonic property value method, synthesize the literature to estimate a set of unit values and transfer functions to support decisions affecting water quality, and identify approaches to move beyond the limitations identified in the synthesis.
