The Career Project: An Intervention To Facilitate Career Development, Dale E. Rude, Marina Sebastijanovic, Jamie K. Belinne, Troy D. Hopkins

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Students face substantial challenges in readying for their professional lives. They must select a field, find a suitable job within that field, and lay a foundation for their career. To aid with this, we present the career project, an efficient career- and self-exploration assignment. The project comprises a resume assessment, identifying short-term and long-term career goals, backup plans, personal strengths and selling points, conducting organizational research, an informational interview with someone in their desired field, and a market assessment by a knowledgeable professional. We tested the project efficacy with 803 students (two treatment groups and two controls) during an ‘Introduction …


The Paycheck Protection Program's Effect On Real Estate Prices, Someswar Amujala 2023 Claremont Colleges

The Paycheck Protection Program's Effect On Real Estate Prices, Someswar Amujala

CMC Senior Theses

This paper investigates the relationship between the Paycheck Protec- tion Program (PPP) and real estate price increases. The Paycheck Protection Program was established by the Small Business Association in 2020 to pro- vide forgivable loans to businesses to aid with potential losses from COVID- 19 impacts. I leverage zip code level data across the United States and a fixed effects panel data model to quantitatively measure the PPP’s influence on housing and rental prices. I find a positive and significant relationship between the number of PPP loans disbursed and housing and rental rates. Specifically, a 1% change in the number …

Site Development Feasibility Study, Andy A. Tenekjian 2022 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Site Development Feasibility Study, Andy A. Tenekjian

Construction Management

A feasibility study in the world of construction is deemed as a preliminary due diligence process in which key components of a project are addressed to determine if the project is viable or not. These components are related to time and money, and the end goal of a feasibility study is to determine if the initial investment of time and money is worth the amount of future financial return. What deems a project successful in the preliminary stage is up for interpretation. Each developer and investor have their own return on investment threshold in a multi-family project like the one …


The Value Of Fiduciary Duties: Evidence From En Bloc Sales In Singapore, Jianfeng HU, Kelvin F. K. LOW, Wei ZHANG 2022 Singapore Management University

The Value Of Fiduciary Duties: Evidence From En Bloc Sales In Singapore, Jianfeng Hu, Kelvin F. K. Low, Wei Zhang

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

This paper examines the impact of fiduciary duties on collective asset sales in the case of owners acting as delegates for other owners, thereby potentially inducing conflicts of interests. Our identification strategy exploits a unique legal shock in Singapore, which established fiduciary duties in those transactions in the real estate market known colloquially as en bloc sales. The imposition of fiduciary duties caused the price premium of units sold via en bloc sales to increase over units ineligible for en bloc sale, as well as over units that, although eligible for en bloc sale, are sold individually. In addition, this …

Social, Ethical & Legal Aspect Of Rwa (Resident Welfare Association) Management, Soma Mitra, Dhananjaya Sarangi, Rajendra Bhanj Col., Srikanta Patnaik

Interscience Management Review

There has been a sharp rise in the number of highrise buildings in almost all cities during the last 10 years and particularly after the declaration of “Smart Cities” by Government of India. So far as the business and management of infrastructure companies are concerned, it is needless to say that it is an established industry. However, after these high rise buildings become habitable, and are handed over to the housing societies or Resident Welfare Associations (Hereafter referred as RWAs), there are many issues and challenges faced by the apartment owners. The motivation behind the study of social, ethical and …

Public History Is Now, Sarah E. Dougher 2022 Portland State University

Public History Is Now, Sarah E. Dougher

Amplify: A Journal of Writing-as-Activism

A walking tour of downtown Portland in August 2021 raises questions for the writer about the purpose of “memory activism,” its relation to writing-as-activism. Drawing on critiques of urbanist Jane Jacobs and interrogating the concept of “reckoning,” the essay explores ways in which the streetscape and people there can deliver meaning and pose questions about systemic racism and unsheltered existence.


The Impact Of Virtual Marketing Strategies On The Price‑Tom Relation, Kelley Cours Anderson, Julia Freybote, Kerry Manis 2022 College of Charleston, Charleston

The Impact Of Virtual Marketing Strategies On The Price‑Tom Relation, Kelley Cours Anderson, Julia Freybote, Kerry Manis

Business Faculty Publications and Presentations

Virtual tours such as pre-recorded videos or self-guided virtual reality (VR) tours represent marketing strategies that agents can use to promote homes for sale. Assuming agents aim at maximizing their net commissions, we expect virtual tours, which require more agent effort and are more costly, to be used for homes that are difficult to show due to being owner- or tenant-occupied. Using 34,359 single-family transactions from multiple US markets, we show that virtual tours impact the sales prices of occupied homes (1) directly (main effect) and (2) indirectly through an interaction with time on market (TOM). However, this impact differs …

Do Large Gains Make Willing Sellers?, Dong HONG, Roger LOH, Mitch WARACHKA 2022 Singapore Management University

Do Large Gains Make Willing Sellers?, Dong Hong, Roger Loh, Mitch Warachka

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Using unique real estate data that allow for accurately-measured capital gains, we examine whether sell propensities depend on the magnitude of a seller's capital gain. We find that short-term sell propensities are flat over losses and increasing in gains. Consistent with their higher sell propensities, selling prices are lower for properties with larger gains. Large-sized short-term stock investments also have sell propensities that are flat over losses and increasing in gains, although the sell propensities of typical-sized short-term stock investments are V-shaped (Ben-David and Hirshleifer (2012)). Our findings provide empirical support for the realization utility theories of Barberis and Xiong …

Time On Market And The Cash Discount For Condos, Eli Beracha, Julia Freybote, Zhenguo Lin, Michael J. Seiler 2022 Florida International University

Time On Market And The Cash Discount For Condos, Eli Beracha, Julia Freybote, Zhenguo Lin, Michael J. Seiler

Business Faculty Publications and Presentations

We investigate whether the cash discount for condos is affected by time on market (TOM). Theoretically and empirically, we show that the cash discount has two components: First, condos purchased with cash sell at a discount compared to mortgagefinanced condos, which is in line with the cash discount identified in the housing literature. The second component is a TOM-variable cash discount that increases the longer a condo is on the market. In addition, our empirical analysis suggests the cash discount only exists for low-price condos and disappears in higher price segments. In particular, for low-price condos, the cash discount comprises …
