New Cornell Real Estate Market Indices


The Cornell Real Estate Market Indices (Third Quarter 2015)

The price of large and small hotels appears to have peaked, based on our Standardized Unexpected Price (SUP) metric. Hotel investment based on operating performance is in the black (breakeven). Indicators that hotel prices should start to level off or decline include the historical cycle analysis, a continued rise in cost of debt financing, a widening of the relative risk premium for hotels, higher total risk for hotels relative to other commercial real estate, and continued declines in the hotel REIT index, business confidence index, and the architecture billings index. This is report number 16 of the index indices.
