Research

research overview

  • My primary areas of research interest are: (1) measuring residential real estate prices; (2) modeling spatial and temporal variation in those prices; (3) identifying within metropolitan area sub-market boundaries; and (4) real estate investment performance measurement. My house price index research focuses on obtaining precise estimates of residential real estate prices--prices for rental housing services and prices for owner-occupied homes. My housing market research examines how well traditional economic housing market models explain spatial and temporal variation in house prices.
