Hi Martin, I apologize for my lack of clarity. I meant to type black-to-white sale. For each repeat sale I wanted to construct an indicator of the type of sale i.e., whether the sale was white owner to black owner , white owner to hispanic owner,etc. and for each of these transactions the difference in price. For example, id represents a building. So in 1997 building 1 was bought by a white buyer and in 2000 it was sold to a black buyer. Hence, we know that in 2000 we had a white-to-black sale and the difference between the price the white buyer paid and the black buyer paid is 145-123=22.
