His research lies in the intersection of housing, asset pricing, and macroeconomics. One strand of his work studies how financial market liberalization in the mortgage market relaxed households’ down payment constraints, and how that affected the macro-economy, and the prices of stocks and bonds. In this area, he has also worked on regional housing prices and on household’s mortgage choice. He currently studies real estate price formation, the impact of foreign buyers on the market, and mortgage market design. Professor Van Nieuwerburgh has published articles in numerous journals, including the Econometrica, The Journal of Political Economy, and the Journal of Finance, and he is Editor at the Review of Financial Studies. He is a Faculty Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and at the Center for European Policy Research. Professor Van Nieuwerburgh was awarded the 15th Edition of the Bérnácer Prize for his research on the transmission of shocks in the housing market on the macro-economy and the prices of financial assets.
