The first real estate bubble? Land prices and rents in medieval England c.1200–1550

This project will examine the workings of the real estate market in the 13th to the 15th centuries to investigate whether a real estate bubble existed in medieval England. Earlier studies by the team have shown that medieval financial markets were far more sophisticated than previously thought. The project is hoping to advance understanding of the medieval property market by utilising cutting-edge econometric techniques. The study will give a national overview and also examine regional variations in property prices and rents, hopefully identifying if the North-South divide can be traced back to the Middle Ages. Better data on property prices and rental values will also help to understand wealth distribution and changes in living standards over the long run.
