Abstract

This study aims to empirically study house prices and their relationship with China's critical economic and financial metrics. The key metrics include interest rate, inflation rate, and stock index prices. This study shows that stock index prices do not significantly impact house prices in China. At the same time, long-term interest and inflation rates positively impact house prices in China.Additionally, short-term interest rate possesses a negative im-pact on house prices. This can shed light on policymakers in China when making economic decisions to influence house prices in China. On top of this, this study also compared house prices and real estate stock index prices and concluded that the two differ significantly.
