The effect of proximity to a registered sex offender's residence on single-family house selling price.(features)


This study reports a finding of a significant effect on the selling price of a single-family house given its proximity to a registered sex offender's residence. The effect is an increasing function of proximity that varies with offender classification and with the community notification system employed. For more dangerous offenders, the effect is significant for houses located up to 0.3 mile from an offender. Houses located within 0.1 mile of an offender sold for 17.4 % less, on average, than similar houses located farther away. For less dangerous offenders, the significant effect extends to 0.2 mile from the offender's residence, and the effect is smaller. ..Source.. by James E. Larsen & Kenneth J. Lowrey & Joseph W.
