Investing In The Land Of O.Z.: The Promise Of Qualified Opportunity Zone Investing In Ameliorating Urban Blight, Lukas John Foy
Undergraduate Honors Theses
In 2017, President Trump’s landmark Tax Cuts and Jobs Act introduced one of the most prolific federal incentives for real estate development in decades. In an effort to stimulate investment in neglected neighborhoods across all 50 states and five territories, the Federal Government authorized the designation of almost 9,000 blighted census tracts across the country as eligible for tax incentives. Investment in these tracts, deemed Qualified Opportunity Zones, allow investors to receive substantial capital gains deferral and possible capital gains exclusion at the end of the designated holding period, assuming they comply with the regulations of the program ...
Property Management Leadership In Digital Era, 2020 Northeastern Illinois University
Property Management Leadership In Digital Era, Monica Kristaly
University Honors Program Senior Projects
Leaders’ efforts to sustain a competency advantage are tightly connected to their company’s ability to implement technology innovation. Property management allows decision making and team-leading processes to unfold new shapes again and again. However, little research has examined these dynamics. This study examines the relationship between leadership styles and property management firm performance in the digital era. We focus on two leadership styles: Transactional Leadership and Transformational Leadership and propose that digitalization will moderate the relationship between different leadership styles and property management effectiveness. Using transactional and transformational leadership theories, we propose that both transformational and transactional leadership styles ...

Finance Undergraduate Honors Theses
Businesses are continually faced with many difficult decisions to make daily that can have a significant impact on their success. Whether it is if they should adopt a new accounting practice, work with a new supplier, or push into a new consumer sector, these decisions will affect their operations and long-term plans. One of these major decisions that a business has to make is whether they should own or lease their real estate. Depending on the size, type, and scope of a business this decision could be made differently but for certain companies there is definitely a correct answer. Buying ...

Analysis Of Modelling Deficiencies That Contributed To The High Unanticipated Loan Losses Incurred During The Housing Price Collapse Of The Great Recession, Jennifer Shulman
Undergraduate Honors Theses
In this paper the data, modelling and the environmental factors that contributed to the collapse of the US housing market and the high mortgage loan losses during the Great Recession are explored. Deficiencies in data and modelling are discussed with an emphasis on the deficiencies in the mathematical modeling that failed to predict the high level of risk associated with mortgage originations in the mid-2000's. It is suggested that the lack of effective modelling significantly contributed to banks offering aggressive origination guidelines and that this was a major contributing factor that led up to the housing price collapse in ...
Screened Out Of Housing: The Impact Of Misleading Tenant Screening Reports And The Potential For Criminal Expungement As A Model For Effectively Sealing Evictions, 2020 Northwestern Pritzker School of Law
Screened Out Of Housing: The Impact Of Misleading Tenant Screening Reports And The Potential For Criminal Expungement As A Model For Effectively Sealing Evictions, Katelyn Polk
Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy
Having an eviction record “blacklists” tenants from finding future housing. Even renters with mere eviction filings—not eviction orders—on their records face the harsh collateral consequences of eviction. This Note argues that eviction records should be sealed at filing and only released into the public record if a landlord prevails in court. Juvenile record expungement mechanisms in Illinois serve as a model for one way to protect people with eviction records. Recent updates to the Illinois juvenile expungement process provided for the automatic expungement of certain records and strengthened the confidentiality protections of juvenile records. Illinois protects juvenile records ...
First Quarter 2020: Gird Your Loins, 2020 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration
First Quarter 2020: Gird Your Loins, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White Jr
Cornell Real Estate Market Indices
Hotels in all regions experienced negative price momentum this quarter with hotels in the New England area having the worst price performance. Hotels located in gateway cities were especially hard hit. Hotel financial operating performance based on economic value analysis (EVA) has turned negative, indicating that hotel returns are coming primarily from future price appreciation. The prices of large and small hotels have both trended downwards toward their long run average from the perspective of our moving average trendlines and standardized unexpected price performance metrics. The cost of hotel debt financing has fallen this quarter while the cost of equity ...

Superstition, Conspicuous Spending, And Housing Market: Evidence From Singapore, 2020 Nankai University
Superstition, Conspicuous Spending, And Housing Market: Evidence From Singapore, Jia He, Haoming Liu, Changcheng Song, Changcheng Song, Wei-Kang Wong
Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business
We study the effect of superstition and conspicuous spending motives on housing demand and price in Singapore. We find that buyers pay less for homes with unlucky addresses and more for homes with lucky addresses. There were fewer housing transactions on inauspicious days of the lunar calendar when people are advised to avoid making major economic decisions. This suggests that superstitious belief still affects economic activities. The demand for lucky addresses is also weaker on these inauspicious days, suggesting that superstitious belief indeed affects the demand for lucky addresses. Moreover, the price premium for a lucky address is significantly higher ...

How Announcements Of The Qualified Mortgage Patch Expiration Have Impacted The United States Housing Market, Connor Gaskin
CMC Senior Theses
This study analyzes the impacts of different announcements of the Qualified Mortgage GSE Patch expiration, set for January 10, 2021. The Qualified Mortgage GSE Patch was introduced in January 2014 to allow for the GSEs, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, to originate loans above the monthly Debt-to-Income ratio of 43 percent with the same protections as a Qualified Mortgage. To analyze these impacts, I measure the changes in the number of loans the GSEs obtain and weighted average home price before the announcement to after the announcement. In order to test for significance, I use a five- year benchmark period ...
Families Belong Together: The Path To Family Sanctity In Public Housing, 2020 Northwestern Pritzker School of Law
Families Belong Together: The Path To Family Sanctity In Public Housing, Mckayla Stokes
Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy
In its 2015 landmark civil rights decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court finally held that the Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses of the United States Constitution guarantee same-sex couples’ marital equality. The Court’s unprecedented declaration that the right to marry is a fundamental right under the Due Process Clause strengthened married couples’ right to privacy because it subjects government actions infringing on marital unions to heightened scrutiny. The Supreme Court has the option to minimize the impact of Obergefell by interpreting the right to marriage very narrowly—as only encompassing the right to enter into a ...

Cornell Real Estate Market Indices
Onlyhotels in the New England region, and to a lesser extent the Midwest region, experienced a positive price momentum this quarter, although both regions suffered poor performance from a year-over-year perspective. Hotels located in gateway cities outperformed hotels in non-gateway cities. Hotel financial operating performance continued to post positive profit with operating profit exceeding both a hotel property’s operating costs and its financial (borrowing) cost based on economic value analysis (EVA). Although the price of large hotels increased in the fourth quarter (as compared to quarter three), the price of small hotels declined quarter to quarter, and the price ...

Undergraduate Theses, Professional Papers, and Capstone Artifacts
While the green building movement is common practice in the commercial realm, it is not yet widely popular with residential buildings. We considered the question “How can residents of western Montana adopt eco-friendly housing practices that are locally appropriate and relevant?” There is an opportunity to increase green living practices among renters and homeowners in western Montana through retrofitting, gardening, composting, and similar behaviors. By considering climatic factors relevant to the region, suggestions for relevant eco-friendly practices can be made available to homeowners and renters alike. We will research green living practices used in other countries with similar climatic factors ...

Interdisciplinary Student Competition For California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo, 2019 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Interdisciplinary Student Competition For California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo, Forest G. Gobble
Cal Poly has a reputation for producing some of the best qualified graduates in their respective fields of study. While this is very important, curricular activities involving collaboration between students within the same college are limited (excluding same major). Beyond that, collaboration opportunities across colleges are even more rare. When graduates enter the workforce, many are thrust into highly collaborative environments across various disciplines. Industry professionals have shown a strong desire for young people who have had exposure to realistic problems and experience working with other professions outside of their own field of expertise. The question needing answering is, would ...

Should Las Vegas Bet On Homeownership? Trends In Housing Affordability And Homeownership, 2019 The Brookings Institution
Should Las Vegas Bet On Homeownership? Trends In Housing Affordability And Homeownership, Jenny Schuetz
Brookings Mountain West Publications
In many parts of the U.S., rents and housing prices are rising faster than household incomes. Low-income families have always been stretched to pay for housing without sacrificing other necessities. In recent years, housing costs have become a larger source of financial stress for middle-income families. While homeownership has been the primary channel for wealth building in the U.S., two recent trends raise questions about whether this is a viable strategy. First, many homeowners suffered severe financial losses due to housing price declines during the Great Recession (2007-2009). Second, homeownership rates for Black and Latino families lag those ...
