Abstract: Quebec City offers a lot of different residential environments, leading to several housing sub-markets since its foundation, in 1608. Administrative delimitations have become questionable for urban studies. There is no such thing as a perfect spatial segmentation. Nevertheless, some methods exist to delineate homogeneous spaces, regarding to a given type of problem. This paper presents an historical-morphological (HM) spatial segmentation approach for generating residential sub-markets using historical, social and morphological criteria as an alternative to the usual administrative segmentations used in real estate studies. For this study, we compare HM segmentation with two sets of administrative limits, before and after amalgamation. Overall performances of the tree segmentation for the Quebec single-family housing market are compared using multivariate discriminant analysis. Then, three hedonic pricing models are used to estimate the extent to which segmentation affects the sale price, and to test their relevance for assessing local variations of implicit prices. Findings suggest that HM segmentation is more efficient than administrative boundaries, but still perfectible.
