Center for Real Estate and Finance Reports

A research-based study that addresses issues associated with the hospitality and service industry. A report is a “put-to-work Monday-morning” type of study in that it provides suggestions that are clear and actionable. A reader should have an idea of what to “do differently” having read a report.

Center for Real Estate and Finance Tools

An instructional study or “how to” document. There are two types of tools: (1) a Microsoft Word document and (2) a Microsoft Word document and a related Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

Cornell Real Estate and Finance Working Papers

The working paper series contain research undertaken by the center’s affiliated faculty in the fields of real estate, finance, and built environment. The purpose of the series is to disseminate the research results as widely as possible and to encourage intellectual exchange. The research in the working paper series is preliminary in nature.

Cornell Real Estate Market Indices

A recurring record of data pertinent to real estate and the hospitality industry.
