Article Influence of the Value of Housing Features and Circumstance on Residential Satisfaction in Kaohsiung
Author Ching-Sheng Chang, Su-Yueh Chen, Yi-Ting Lan, Jun-Ying Huang

As national income rises, housing requirements have been elevated from a basic shelter from rain and wind to an emphasis on both the internal conditions and external environment of a house. People have especially turned their attention from the convenience of living, amenity and quality of living to the less addressed residence safety since the 921 earthquake and numerous typhoon disasters. The majority of past studies investigated the influence of housing features on prices to measure customer satisfaction through the quality of service provided by relevant personnel, while in reality customer satisfaction in terms of residence lies in resident satisfaction with housing. Against this backdrop, this study aimed to explore the influence of the value of housing features and housing circumstance on residential satisfaction. 500 copies of the questionnaire were distributed, and 344 valid copies were retrieved, accounting for a valid response rate of 68.8%. The empirical results of this study revealed that the housing features including living space and housing structure and housing circumstance including neighborhood environment and accessibility had a significant positive influence on residential satisfaction of consumers. It is thus suggested that housing builders and planners should make recommendations based on major value of housing features and housing circumstance of the house when building and planning a house.

Article Applying Spatial Hedonic Price Model to Explore the Effects of Taiwan High Speed Railway on Land Pri
Author Ko-Wan Tsou, Hao-Teng Cheng, Hsing-Fu Kuo, Tsung-Ming Yang

Capital investment in transportation, such as Taiwan High Speed Railway (THSR), brings many significant impacts not only population growth, industrial development and land price at a local level, but the economical structure and spatial development pattern at a regional level. Reviewing past domestic studies, many of them predicted the impacts of THSR. Some studies had discussed the impact of THSR on local development. However, these studies usually used single station or a specific year to verify and thereby the results could not have a systematical and whole discussion.As a result, this paper used the land price indexes as analysis data to reveal the impact of THSR and applied spatial error model to explore the impacts of THSR on land price in Taiwan's towns along with THSR. All the THSR stations might be analyzed in four selected years. Moreover, a comparative analysis between different stations was conducted in this paper.The result showed the different influence in selected years, revealing the effects of THSR on land price. More importantly, the effects were affected by the existing development near the stations. The result findings could support governments for transportation investment and regional development.
