The Real Effects Of Sharing Economy: Evidence From Airbnb, Yifei Mao, Xuan Tian, Kailei Ye 2018 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

The Real Effects Of Sharing Economy: Evidence From Airbnb, Yifei Mao, Xuan Tian, Kailei Ye

Working Papers

Sharing economy has developed rapidly in recent years, but little is known regarding its real effects. This paper examines how a pioneer of sharing economy—Airbnb—affects local economy. Using venture capital infusions as plausibly exogenous shocks to Airbnb’s expansion into a new county, we find that Airbnb expansion leads to poorer hotel performance in the local county. Meanwhile, Airbnb expansion appears to reduce unemployment rate and increase household income. Further analysis suggests that increased employment is concentrated in industries that are complementary to Airbnb’s business and in employee groups with lower education levels. Our study sheds new ...

Economic Fundamentals, Capital Expenditures And Asset Dispositions, Brent Ambrose, Eva Steiner 2018 Pennsylvania State University

Economic Fundamentals, Capital Expenditures And Asset Dispositions, Brent Ambrose, Eva Steiner

Eva Steiner

Research on the disposition effect in real assets to date ignores the active management component of these investments. Active management notably includes decisions about follow-up investment in the form of capital expenditures, as well as dispositions. Using a real option framework, we develop testable hypotheses and provide empirical evidence for the relationships between economic fundamentals, capital expenditures, property values, and the subsequent likelihood of sale. Our results shed new light on the evidence for the disposition effect.


Random Walks And Market Efficiency: Evidence From Real Estate Investment Trusts (Reit) Subsectors, Fahad Almudhaf, Andrew J. Hansz 2018 Old Dominion University

Random Walks And Market Efficiency: Evidence From Real Estate Investment Trusts (Reit) Subsectors, Fahad Almudhaf, Andrew J. Hansz

Finance Faculty Publications

This paper investigates the random walk behavior of real estate investment trust (REIT) subsectors using monthly return data from January 1994 to July 2015. Using variance ratio tests, we examine subsectors of lodging/ resorts and self-storage and find that they do not follow a random walk, contradicting the weak-form efficient market hypothesis. Nonparametric runs tests help us find that office, industrial, mixed, free standing, shopping centers, apartments, manufactured homes, and timberland subsectors are weak-form efficient. The evidence in this study supports the idea that some subsectors are more informationally efficient than other subsectors. Copyright © 2018 The Author(s).


Natural Occupancy Shifts In Hotel Markets, Bram Gallagher, John B. Corgel 2018 CBRE Hotels’ Americas Research

Natural Occupancy Shifts In Hotel Markets, Bram Gallagher, John B. Corgel

Articles and Chapters

The natural occupancy rate underpins room price adjustment models for hotel market evaluations; however, models that assume that this rate is time invariant and everywhere constant may introduce error when forecasting future real room rates and benchmarking market strength. We use monthly STR room rate and occupancy data for five large U.S. metropolitan hotel markets to estimate natural occupancy differences in time and across markets. The notion of a time-varying natural occupancy aligns with changing market equilibrium. When aggregating over the entire sample, long-run average occupancy is reasonably good approximation of estimated constant natural occupancy. We use a Markov ...

Essays In Real Estate Economics, Jordan Michael Martel 2018 University of Colorado at Boulder

Essays In Real Estate Economics, Jordan Michael Martel

Business Administration Graduate Theses & Dissertations

My dissertation studies the role of informational and institutional determinants of house prices and liquidity.

In the first chapter, I quantify the effect of buyers' uncertainty about a home's quality on its pricing and liquidity. I first develop a parsimonious model of home sale in which buyers learn about the home's quality from a walkthrough and from the home's days-on-market. Quality uncertainty distorts prices and delays trade. As time passes, buyers become pessimistic and sale prices fall. Using transaction-level data from Denver, Charlotte, and Detroit, I structurally estimate counterfactual days-on-market and sale prices for six hundred thousand ...

The Aero District, Hillsboro, Oregon, Naiop Workshop Project, Lataunynia Campbell, Teresa Davis, Jesse Pollard, Kelsey Trostle, Brandon Willingham

Real Estate Development Workshop Projects

What follows is a proposal to redevelop the southern portion of the Hillsboro Airport located in Hillsboro, OR. The airport is owned by the Port of Portland. Currently, some of the property proposed for redevelopment is located “behind the fence”, in airport secure locations. The Port looks to open up and active land on the south end of the airport for commercial development.

The redevelopment plan must consider the needs of the Port of Portland, Washington County – neighbors and owners of the new Fairgrounds Master Plan development just south of the Hillsboro Airport, and the City of Hillsboro.

Introduction, Lorcan Sirr

Articles

Over many decades, it has been rare for a week to pass without housing-related issues being close to, or at, the top of news and political agendas. As everybody has to live somewhere, housing – and its related elements of property, building, planning and finance – is a topic in which everybody has both a stake and an opinion. It is the most personal of subjects – in many respects, our housing shapes our lives.

Service Charge Collection In Multi-Unit Developments, Adele Mckeown, Lorcan Sirr

Articles

Multi-unit developments (MUDs) – typically developments of apartments, or apartments and houses, but also sometimes including a commercial component – differ from traditional housing as they have three distinct characteristics: individual ownership of a unit, shared ownership of common property, and collective membership of a corporate body that assumes responsibility for the management of the development (Christudason, 2004). In the Irish case, this corporate body is known as the owners’ management company (OMC). The legal framework for ownership in MUDs is based on leasehold, which means that the purchaser owns the property but not the land on which it is built. Leaseholds ...

Fourth Quarter 2017: Smaller Hotels Finish Strong; Larger Hotels Lag, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White 2018 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Fourth Quarter 2017: Smaller Hotels Finish Strong; Larger Hotels Lag, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White

Cornell Real Estate Market Indices

Hotel performance is still in the black based on economic value analysis (EVA), although returns still exceed borrowing costs (for debt). The narrowing of the spread between the cap rate and cost of debt suggests that deals may be getting harder to pencil. Transaction volume declined this quarter relative to the previous quarter, although volume remained stable on a year-over-year basis. Our various pricing metrics point to continued positive price momentum for smaller hotels, with larger hotels still losing ground. From a reading of our tea leaves, we expect a continuing positive momentum, although prices will increase at a decreasing ...


Saving Behaviour In The Australian Dream: Its Relationship With Aspiration And Motivation, Financial Literacy, And Materialism, Ming d’Iapico-Bien 2018 Edith Cowan University

Saving Behaviour In The Australian Dream: Its Relationship With Aspiration And Motivation, Financial Literacy, And Materialism, Ming D’Iapico-Bien

Theses : Honours

In Australia, most people aspire to achieve the “Australian dream” of owning their homes. Australian house prices have risen dramatically in comparison to people’s incomes, but despite this, many Australians still strive to enter the property market. The aim of this correlational study was to investigate the relationships between saving behaviour (with the ultimate goal of spending accumulated savings on a house deposit) and various psychological variables over and above sex, age, education, employment status, and income. The investigated predictor variables were motivation, extrinsic aspiration, financial literacy, and materialism. Previous research grounded in self-determination theory (SDT) has shown that ...


Infrastructure Impacts On Commercial Property Values Across El Paso In 2013, Arturo Bujanda, Thomas M. Fullerton Jr. 2018 Mercator International

Infrastructure Impacts On Commercial Property Values Across El Paso In 2013, Arturo Bujanda, Thomas M. Fullerton Jr.

Border Region Modeling Project

Real estate property value analysis is used for municipal taxation and budgeting. Commercial properties make up a large percentage of the property tax base in many, if not most, taxing jurisdictions. Data constraints limit the number of analyses conducted on commercial property value patterns. This study employs a fairly extensive data set to address that problem in the context of El Paso in 2013. The sample contains data for 105,611 commercial real estate parcels. Empirical analysis is conducted using geographically weighted regression analysis. Results confirm that parameter estimation for the commercial property data in this sample should be conducted ...

Three Essays On The Application Of Machine Learning Methods In Economics, Abdelaziz Lawani 2018 University of Kentucky

Three Essays On The Application Of Machine Learning Methods In Economics, Abdelaziz Lawani

Theses and Dissertations--Agricultural Economics

Over the last decades, economics as a field has experienced a profound transformation from theoretical work toward an emphasis on empirical research (Hamermesh, 2013). One common constraint of empirical studies is the access to data, the quality of the data and the time span it covers. In general, applied studies rely on surveys, administrative or private sector data. These data are limited and rarely have universal or near universal population coverage. The growth of the internet has made available a vast amount of digital information. These big digital data are generated through social networks, sensors, and online platforms. These data ...


The Mall Ain’T Dead Yet! An Aristotelian Argument For The Continuation Of Physical Retail Space With The Rise Of Modern Technology, Tarah Gilbreth 2018 Claremont McKenna College

The Mall Ain’T Dead Yet! An Aristotelian Argument For The Continuation Of Physical Retail Space With The Rise Of Modern Technology, Tarah Gilbreth

CMC Senior Theses

According to Aristotle, for a human being to live their best life, that is a life that flourishes, is to live a political life. A political life is lived best in a polis , or a self - sufficient community, so therefore, the most flourishing human life is one lived in a polis . Also, for a polis to be self - sufficient, its citizens must be flourishing, so there exists a special sort of constitutive relationship between the polis and its citizens. There are certain capacities available to human beings in the polis that promote their flourishing (namely loyalty and trust) that help ...
