The objective of this initial paper is simply to review the existing literature on tenure choice, in order to identify factors shown to affect households tenure decisions and to gain insight into how these factors might be combined for predictive purposes. Since the literature on tenure choice is extensive, and since it overlaps with the literature on mobility and housing consumption decisions in general as well as the literature on the user cost of capital, this review does not attempt to be exhaustive. Instead, we focus on books and articles that illustrate useful approaches to predicting household tenure decisions.
