Abstract: With the rapid development of urbanization and rapid evolution of urban and rural relationship, the location and function of the rural housing land have been undergoing profound transition. The sustained brisk demand for construction land raises the potential value of rural housing land. However, due to the urban-rural dual land system, there are restrictions on the transactions and usage of collective construction. The regulation of property rights puts part of the rent value of rural housing land into the “public domain”. In that case, the land resource could not be allocated to the best use. The “non-exclusive income” left in the “public domain” tends to dissipate, not only because of the inefficient resource allocation, but also because of the rent competition among the land users. As a kind of economic waste, rent dissipation will be reduced to the greatest extent by related resource consumers.
