Economic Analysis of Real Estate Markets

This course examines connections between the national and global economies and real estate markets from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. Explore the performance of specific property types under different macroeconomic and monetary conditions, as well as key policy issues and their economic impact on real estate markets, and identify indicators used to track economic and real estate performance. Also, examine the economic structure of major metropolitan areas, the impact of local governments on urban economic growth, the impact of urban economic growth on supply and demand for specific property types, and conditions under which certain regions thrive while others decline. Building upon the concepts and tools of economic analysis, this course introduces appropriate data sources and techniques useful in analyzing and forecasting real estate demand and supply for specific property types at specific locations. Class discussion will highlight current economic and financial trends and their implications for real estate markets.
