Residential Housing Renewable Energy Savings Calculator, Eric J. Robinson 2018 Loyola Marymount University

Residential Housing Renewable Energy Savings Calculator, Eric J. Robinson

Honors Thesis

Frequently renewable energy investment has been thwarted by principal-agent disconnects. Chief among these is the disconnect in the rental market between tenants and landlords; whereby, the tenant may desire to invest in renewable energy sources but has no means to. An additional disconnect occurs between homeowners and their utilities providers. This study seeks to explore the disconnect between tenants and landlords and better align their motivations through intelligent contract design for sustainable investment. If renewable energy is proven profitable as a long-term investment, landlords will be more apt to invest and collect an energy/utility fee included in the cost ...


The Rise Of Bedford Stuyvesant: A Gentrification Case Study, Jerome Fratello 2018 Lehigh University

The Rise Of Bedford Stuyvesant: A Gentrification Case Study, Jerome Fratello

Eckardt Scholars Projects

Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn is undergoing a socio-economic transformation, as surging interest from wealthy consumer segments creates pent- up demand for a limited supply of apartments, condominiums, and townhouses. (Hill and Rabig) The African American population of Bedford Stuyvesant has decreased from 75% to 60% in less than a decade. This research paper investigates the extent to which gentrification in Bedford Stuyvesant has caused displacement, or whether rising home prices have begun to create generational wealth for the mainstay, minority population. In this manner, the neighborhood of Bedford Stuyvesant is used to frame a study of gentrification and its effect on ...

This paper examines the costs and the benefits of hosting the World Cup with a focus on historical data and past economic impact studies.


Assessment Limits And Timing Of Real Estate Transactions, Sebastien J. Bradley 2018 Drexel University

Assessment Limits And Timing Of Real Estate Transactions, Sebastien J. Bradley

Sebastien J Bradley

Michigan homebuyers face large potential discontinuities in property tax obligations for purchases made around January 1 and May 1 under the state's application of acquisition-value based assessment limits and principal residence (homestead) exemptions, respectively.  Consistent with incentives, roughly 3.7 percent of sales concluded in the first 10 business days of January are thus attributable to timing responses among the subset of properties listed by the largest 25 percent of firms by sales volume.  Underlying this effect is a willingness to stretch the number of days between contract and closing dates by an average of 2 to 4 business ...

Implications Of Social Media Use On Instruction And Student Learning: An Exploratory Study, Mayur Desai, Lucy Ojode 2018 Texas Southern University, Texas

Implications Of Social Media Use On Instruction And Student Learning: An Exploratory Study, Mayur Desai, Lucy Ojode

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Despite being a norm in contemporary organizations including in academia, there is limited understanding how multimedia technology use might impact learning. We have also seen a rise in the use of social media applications such as Facebook, tweeter, Instagram, skype, flickr, and blogging among students, but it is unclear the extent to which the academe embraces these applications. In this study, we examine the potential role of multimedia technology and social media use in the learning process. We explore the potential implications for instruction and on student learning of the marriage between multimedia technology and social media use. Focusing on ...


Leveraging Decision Making In Cyber Security Analysis Through Data Cleaning, Chen Zhong, Hong Liu, Awny Alnusair 2018 Indiana University Kokomo, Indiana

Leveraging Decision Making In Cyber Security Analysis Through Data Cleaning, Chen Zhong, Hong Liu, Awny Alnusair

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Security Operations Centers (SOCs) have been built in many institutions for intrusion detection and incident response. A SOC employs various cyber defense technologies to continually monitor and control network traffic. Given the voluminous monitoring data, cyber security analysts need to identify suspicious network activities to detect potential attacks. As the network monitoring data are generated at a rapid speed and contain a lot of noise, analysts are so bounded by tedious and repetitive data triage tasks that they can hardly concentrate on in-depth analysis for further decision making. Therefore, it is critical to employ data cleaning methods in cyber situational ...

First Quarter 2018: Introducing Our Gateway Cities Index, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White Jr

Cornell Real Estate Market Indices

Hotels in gateway cities have outperformed hotels in non-gateway cities, with hotels in gateway locations rising 10 percent in the past year, compared to 6 percent for those in non-gateway cities.

  • Hotel operating performance scaled by price is still in the black based on economic value analysis (EVA), with returns continuing to exceed borrowing costs (for debt).
  • Transaction volume strengthened both on a quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year basis.
  • While our various pricing metrics point to continued positive price momentum for larger hotels at the expense of smaller hotels, we are concerned whether rising interest rates will put a damper on this ...

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

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.

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 ...

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 ...
