The LocHouse project proposes a comprehensive framework for monitoring and causally identifying disruptions in the Austrian housing market in the context of the COVID19 pandemic. Therefore, we exploit a comprehensive micro-data source on real estate transactions and rent adverts. These data supplemented by a variety of COVID19-related measures inform pan-Austrian hierarchical regression models fit for identifying direct and indirect effect over various phases of the COVID19 pandemic. These models are further made use of to identify segment-specific disruptions and predict effects under future counterfactual housing market scenarios.
