Real estate is one of the largest components of consumption and asset for both households and businesses. Mortgages are also the largest class of debt. Thus, real estate has become the major asset class for investments. In academic research, real estate economics primarily concerns the intersection of finance and urban economics but also extends to macroeconomics, industrial organization, consumer choice, economic history, and econometrics. For example, real estate is often the focal point of major recessions and financial crises such as the Japanese “bubble economy” and the U.S. Great Recession.
In this special lecture series on real estate finance and economics, I emphasize both purely academic research and practical applications because graduate students will take a wide range of career paths. Some of my former students are studying in the U.S. Topics include asset valuation, real options, location theories, market forecasts, capital structure, mortgages, securitization, macroeconomic considerations, and econometric models. The class is interactive; students will have chances to discuss their preliminary research ideas in class. We’ll also have a voluntary nomi-kai after class.
