This paper explores behavioural drivers of housing demand, focussing on the impact of herding and other social influences on housing choices, and their impact on spatial patterns of housing demand. Econometric evidence is presented which captures persistence divergences in housing demand across small areas in the UK 1995 -2016. Policy lessons are explored, including implications for land use policy when social influences exacerbate persistent regional divergences, contributing to uneven patterns of housing demand and urban density trends.
