Faculty teaching this course:

This course provides students with education in the use of statistical methods applied to real estate property and market data for the purpose of making informed decisions about allocations of resources to real estate.  Both elementary and advanced statistical methods are covered in the course and students receive training in the statistical functions of Excel, STATA, and @RISK.  Also, students gain exposure to the expanding number of real estate data bases offered by vendors.  An important component of the course is the series of required assignments that involve finding answers to specific questions encountered in practice that can be best answered with statistical analysis of relevant data.  Building statistics-based forecasting and valuation models is essential for completing the course assignments.
