We consider the generalization of shapley and scarf’s (1974) [shapley, l., scarf’s, h., 1974. On cores and indivisibility. Journal of mathematical economics 1, 23–37.] model of trading indivisible objects (houses) to so-called multiple-type housing markets. We show that the prominent solution for these markets, the coordinate-wise core rule, is second-best incentive compatible.
