Urban Economics Of The Ideal City, William Taylor Brantley 2014 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Urban Economics Of The Ideal City, William Taylor Brantley

Masters Theses

Infrastructure influences both depictions of the ideal city and economic models predicting urban growth. As the common variable, infrastructure investments could promote ideal city values within free market economies.

To preserve the countryside and natural lands infrastructure investments must encourage concentrated growth in cities. The city and countryside are codependent. An abstraction between the two zones will lead to the demise of both the city and the countryside. New urban infrastructure should relate to public spaces creating economic, cultural, and social value in dense development. This value is achieved by generating a multiplicity of connections, program, and places within the ...

The Value Of Flexibility: A Finance Application Of Options To Real Estate, Hamid Pezeshkian, Sina Lashgari, Duane Stiller

Cornell Real Estate Review

Real estate is among the most strategic of businesses. Each property class has both independent and linked economic, demographic, and political constituents. Moreover, there are dozens of parties involved that influence the real estate project’s final outcome. At every stage of a given project, the participants learn new information that affects their plan. Developers learn about the market, local government actions, and tenant decisions, while tenants learn about consumers and competitors. The nature of the business requires and rewards flexibility.

This paper focuses on flexibility and its value in real estate dealings. Specifically, it applies the concept of optionality ...

New York City’S Annual Income And Expenses: Statement Filing Requirement – A Land Mine For The Unwary Purchaser Or Owner Of Real Property, Ryan A. Mccaffrey, Albert D. Lichy

Cornell Real Estate Review

Since 1986, New York City law has required owners of incomeproducing properties in New York City to file an annual income and expense statement, colloquially referred to as an RPIE statement, with the Department of Finance. The general purpose of an RPIE statement is to assist the Department of Finance in assessing the value of income-producing properties.1 To this end, the owners of income-producing properties are required to submit annually a statement that outlines “all income derived from and all expenses attributable to the operation of such property.”2 Despite the draconian penalties for non-compliance - ranging from 3% to ...


Collaborate Or Compete: How Do Landlords Respond To The Rise In Coworking?, Rebecca Green 2014 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Collaborate Or Compete: How Do Landlords Respond To The Rise In Coworking?, Rebecca Green

Cornell Real Estate Review

Changes in technology, attitudes toward work, and the new ‘shared economy’ have created an environment in which people have more options for how, when and where to work. Working from home, telecommuting, hoteling, and collaborative workspaces are on the rise nationally. According to 2010 Census data, 4.3% of the 137 million workers in the United States telecommuted compared to 3.7% in 2005.1 Technology has been a major catalyst, helping to disseminate knowledge, increase communication, and allow people more independence and control over their work and life. The ubiquitous ‘coffee shop entrepreneur’ that migrates from their home-based office ...


Using Reits To Invest In Utility Scale Solar Projects, Brian McKinley 2014 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Using Reits To Invest In Utility Scale Solar Projects, Brian Mckinley

Cornell Real Estate Review

[Excerpt] Public policy in the form of Renewable Portfolio Standards, rising electricity costs, and a sharp decline in upfront costs for commercial and utility scale solar power projects in recent years have allowed for the rapid growth of new solar power installations, and with them, a new opportunity for real estate investors. In this article we discuss solutions to one challenge in the growth of this asset class, securing a viable public financing structure through the utilization of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) that will allow large scale investment to take place and the cost of capital to fall.


Boca Bay: The Impact Of Insurance Availability On Residential Property Values, H. Shelton Weeks, Steve P. Fraser, J. Howard Finch 2014 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Boca Bay: The Impact Of Insurance Availability On Residential Property Values, H. Shelton Weeks, Steve P. Fraser, J. Howard Finch

Cornell Real Estate Review

This case study requires students to determine a method for estimating the valuation impact of the changes in access to flood insurance - specifically, changes in the expense associated with the purchase of insurance in the private market. While these expenses have a high degree of certainty, a unique challenge for students in this case is presented by the lack of comparable market transactions involving properties that have been similarly impacted. Quantifying the change in value requires students to adopt the mindset of informed market participants - individuals aware of the differential in insurance expense and who are considering the purchase of ...

A Burning Question: Does Arson Increase When Local House Prices Decline?, Michael D. Eriksen, James M. Carson 2014 SelectedWorks

A Burning Question: Does Arson Increase When Local House Prices Decline?, Michael D. Eriksen, James M. Carson

Michael D Eriksen

We construct panel data on house prices and the determined cause of 4.6 million individual fires in the United States between 1986 and 2010 to test whether decreases in local housing market prices coincided with increases in arson. Since some insured homeowners may attempt to disguise the actual cause of fire as accidental, we also examine how decreases in local house prices are associated with changes in the total number of fires and the probability of determined causes of accidental fires. For the sample period, our results suggest that declines in local house prices coincided with increases in the ...

A Study Of The Rental Housing Demand In Polk County, Iowa, Biswa Das 2014 Iowa State University

A Study Of The Rental Housing Demand In Polk County, Iowa, Biswa Das

Resilient Neighborhoods Technical Reports and White Papers

Understanding the demand for housing is complex and requires a multidisciplinary understanding and conceptual framework to fully grasp the factors that drive home consumer behavior. Based on the choices individuals and households make about housing, it not only impacts and in many ways defines them, but it also has social and fiscal implications for society at large. Availability of adequate and affordable housing, to own and rent, not only impact the quality of life in a community but also provides a distinct identity to the place. Further, lack of housing not only makes a community less attractive, it also limits ...


A Model To Calculate The Supply Of Affordable Housing In Polk County, Jiangping Zhou, Matthew M. Brooks 2014 Iowa State University

A Model To Calculate The Supply Of Affordable Housing In Polk County, Jiangping Zhou, Matthew M. Brooks

Resilient Neighborhoods Technical Reports and White Papers

This report provides an estimate of the existing affordable housing supply in Polk County at this moment in time using the best available secondary data. This paper ultimately used the traditional measurement of housing affordability: households spending no more that 30% of their income on rent and housing-related costs. However, the study did consider using both the Residual Income approach proposed my Michael Stone and the transportation + housing Index development by the Center for Neighborhood Technology.
