One of the most significant changes in the South African retail landscape over the past few decades is the increase in the number and size of retail shopping centres situated in, or close to, residential areas. These shopping centres have the potential to generate both positive and negative externalities which may, in turn, be capitalised into adjacent residential property prices. However, policy makers are still unsure as to the effect of commercial land uses such as shopping centres on surrounding property prices.

However, according the Williams (2008) it is preferable to transform both sides of the hedonic equation. The uBC model was thus considered to be the most appropriate model for this study as it had lower AIC and BIC values than the rBC.
