Mountain Monitor - 4th Quarter 2013, Kenan Fikri, Mark Muro 2014 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Mountain Monitor - 4th Quarter 2013, Kenan Fikri, Mark Muro

Mountain Monitor

The quarter’s Mountain Monitor finds that the pace of economic recovery in the Mountain West region’s major metropolitan areas converged toward that of the rest of the nation in the last quarter of 2013.

While quarterly performance on the Monitor’s four indicators of economic recovery—employment, output, the unemployment rate, and house prices—varied considerably across the 10 major metro areas of the region, their combined performance broadly slowed to track with the rate of national economic recovery. The quarter’s average job growth remained unchanged in the region at 0.4 percent as the national economy ...

Moral Hazard And Arson: Evidence From Decreases In Local House Prices, Michael D. Eriksen, James M. Carson 2014 SelectedWorks

Moral Hazard And Arson: Evidence From Decreases In Local House Prices, Michael D. Eriksen, James M. Carson

Michael D Eriksen

We assembled data on the determined cause of 5.9 million fires in the United States between 1980 and 2010 to test whether decreases in local housing market prices coincide with increases in arson. Since moral hazard may lead some insured homeowners to disguise the actual cause as accidental, we also examine how decreases in local house prices are associated with the probability of determined causes of accidental fires. We find evidence that declines in local house prices coincided with increases in the per capita rate of fires and the probability of fires determined due to arson or accidental due ...


"Dual Agent Distortions In Real Estate Transactions," Forthcoming At Real Estate Economics, Ken Johnson, Zhenguo Lin, Jia Xie 2014 SelectedWorks

"Dual Agent Distortions In Real Estate Transactions," Forthcoming At Real Estate Economics, Ken Johnson, Zhenguo Lin, Jia Xie

Jia Xie

This paper investigates price distortions in dual agent real estate transactions. Consistent with the literature, we find that dual agent has a null effect on sale price. However, dual agent distortions on sale price emerge after controlling for the ownership of the property. We find that dual agent is associated with a 7.19 percent price premium on agent owned properties, but a 13.06 percent price discount on government owned properties and a 7.04 percent discount on bank owned properties. In addition, market conditions also play an important role in such price distortions.

Mountain Monitor - 3rd Quarter 2013, Kenan Fikri, Mark Muro 2013 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Mountain Monitor - 3rd Quarter 2013, Kenan Fikri, Mark Muro

Mountain Monitor

The quarter’s Mountain Monitor marks the four-year anniversary of Brookings Mountain West's quarterly tracking of the uneven pace of recovery across the major metro areas of the Intermountain West and it finds that, although the region continues to outperform the national economy the rate of recovery slowed moderately in the region’s metro areas.

As a group, Mountain region metro areas advanced on all four indicators of economic recovery tracked by the Monitor—employment, output, unemployment, and house prices—but their progress was more restrained in the third quarter of 2013 than it was in the second.

The Impact Of The Great Recession On Nevada’S Latino Community, John P. Tuman, David F. Damore, Maria J.F. Agreda 2013 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The Impact Of The Great Recession On Nevada’S Latino Community, John P. Tuman, David F. Damore, Maria J.F. Agreda

Brookings Mountain West Publications

The emergence of the Great Recession of 2008 had a profound impact in Nevada. The economic downturn generated high unemployment levels and led to turbulence in many sectors, particularly residential home construction and the hospitality industry. In the wake of the crisis, median home prices in Nevada plunged, while the residential foreclosure rate increased and remains one of the highest rates in the country. By 2009, it was evident that a tightening of commercial bank lending for new mortgages, combined with the impact of rising joblessness and plunging housing values, was hampering recovery efforts in the housing sector and Nevada ...

Goliath Versus Goliath In Hight-Stakes Mbs Litigation, Bradley T. Borden, David J. Reiss 2013 SelectedWorks

Goliath Versus Goliath In Hight-Stakes Mbs Litigation, Bradley T. Borden, David J. Reiss

Bradley T. Borden

The loan-origination and mortgage-securitization practices between 2000 and 2007 created the housing and mortgage-backed securities bubble that precipitated the 2008 economic crisis and ensuing recession. The mess that the loan-origination and mortgage-securitization practices caused is now playing out in courts around the world. MBS investors are suing banks, MBS sponsors and underwriters for misrepresenting the quality of loans purportedly held in MBS pools and failing to properly transfer loan documents and mortgages to the pools, as required by the MBS pooling and servicing agreements. State and federal prosecutors have also filed claims against banks, underwriters and sponsors for the roles ...

Mountain Monitor - 2nd Quarter 2013, Kenan Fikri, Mark Muro

Mountain Monitor

Economic recovery progressed steadily across the metropolitan Mountain West in the second quarter of 2013. Many of the region’s major metro areas counted among the strongest economic performers nationally, but output growth slowed over the quarter and the region‘s unemployment recovery looked to be stagnating. Moderate job growth and a fast and accelerating housing recovery buoyed the Mountain West economy in the second quarter.

Is What's Bad For The Goose (Tenant), Bad For The Gander (Landlord)? A Retail Real Estate Perspective, Crocker H. Liu, Peng Liu 2013 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Is What's Bad For The Goose (Tenant), Bad For The Gander (Landlord)? A Retail Real Estate Perspective, Crocker H. Liu, Peng Liu

Articles and Chapters

We explore the economic dependence and financial market feedback effects among firms with economic linkages, notably landlord-tenant when shocks occur to the system. In particular, we examine 157 major tenant bankruptcy announcements of retail real estate firms over the 2000 to 2010 period. The contracting mechanism associated with retail leases provides several unique features such as percentage rents and co-tenancy clauses that are absent in other type of leases. We find that in a good economy, a tenant bankruptcy has a less negative or more positive effect on a landlord's stock return, which is consistent with the growth option ...

Mountain Monitor-1st Quarter 2013, Kenan Fikri, Mark Muro 2013 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Mountain Monitor-1st Quarter 2013, Kenan Fikri, Mark Muro

Mountain Monitor

Economic recovery gained strength across the major metro areas of the Mountain West in the first quarter of 2013. Multiple metro areas achieved long-awaited full employment recoveries in the first quarter and regional production surpassed pre-recession levels of output for the first time. The region’s strong housing rebound continued to be a boon. Additionally, a special supplement to the Monitor shows that the healthcare sector has been an outsized contributor to recovery throughout the region. Despite progress on multiple fronts, though, many Mountain metro areas remain scarred with high unemployment rates, severely depressed house prices, and daunting jobs deficits.
