Abstract

The hedonic pricing model (HPM) has been used to identify the values of residential
property due to flood impact. Most of the previous studies had been conducted using
flood frequency and flood depth to measure flood variables rather than flood duration.
The hedonic pricing study presented here investigated the effect of flood duration on
residential property value in Peninsular Malaysia. We measured the housing attributes
involving location, structural, and neighborhood attributes. We also developed the
interaction variable between flood and structural attributes to determine whether the
effect of flood duration on residential property value differs across house age, size of
land area, and number of bedroom. The results suggest that the sale price of residential
property is significantly decreased by 0.015 percent due to flood.
