COMM 407 - Real Estate Economics
This course seeks to provide students with an introduction to economics that are the foundation for analysis of real estate markets. Students will study issues that are relevant to the different sectors of private real estate markets, as well as the relationship between the local economy and real estate, and the role played by government in real estate markets. A regular feature of the course is daily discussion of topics of current interest in real estate, urban economics, and urban policy. This allows for an application of the more general concepts covered in lecture to topics of immediate relevance. The major assignment for the class is a research paper.
Prerequisite: One of COMM 295, ECON 201, ECON 301.
