Abstract

The aim of this article is to determine whether house price uncertainty has been an important determinant of the Taylor rule-based interest rate during the years leading up to the financial crisis. A Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (GARCH)-based specification has been used to produce a time-varying measure of volatility, and the results indicate that it has had a significant negative effect on the interest rate, but that its addition only produces a slightly better fit to the actual interest rate.
