Abstract
Pre-industrial societies in North-Western Europe gave rise to deliberate market institutions holding many restrictions on the selling of land, and quite often on the buying of land too. One of the most important determinants of the functioning of the land market was the social distribution of ownership in that specific economic region. This scoop is generally tackled within a static structural analysis, with a keen focus on mere landownership, which complements the study of land and housing transfer in the past. However, despite the rising literature on the rise and organization of the real estate markets, we still know little about the actual (acting of) market participants in general and female participation at the real estate market in particular.
