Topic: Information Contents of Appraisal-based Index of Commercial Real Estate
Abstract: The commercial real estate market provides a unique environment to evaluate the information content of appraisal-based index of commercial real estate and the movement of transaction price to value. The assumption that asset prices, especially financial assets including stocks and bonds, reflect intrinsic value is the cornerstone of modern financial theory. Given the latent nature of intrinsic value, however, definitive empirical assessment has been difficult. The commercial real estate market’s long-term use of both judgment (appraisal) based returns and transaction returns provides a test of the role of intrinsic value. Statistically significant results from cointegrating models suggest that transaction based returns deviate from judgment based returns in the short run, but converge back to the equilibrium state. Additional tests show that the cointegrating residuals among transaction, appraisal and REIT returns predict the one-quarter-ahead transaction returns. The transaction or price returns are predictable with convergence to intrinsic value. The market moves to intrinsic value.
