Regarding single-family residential properties purchased for investment (non-owner occupied) we examine whether out-of-state buyers pay more than in-state buyers. We focus on the effects of search costs and anchoring. We use data on 2,828 Las Vegas non-owner occupied (investor) residences, 40% of which are purchased by non-local investors. We find that the location of the property affects the empirical results. Specifically, search cost and anchoring effects that appear significant when the location of the property is ignored disappear when location is introduced as an independent variable.
