Real Estate & Planning academics appointed by IPF for International Liquidity research project

The Investment Property Forum (IPF) has appointed Dr Steven Devaney and Dr Anupam Nanda from the School of Real Estate & Planning, along with researchers from UCL, to investigate how liquidity varies across international real estate markets.

The Investment Property Forum (IPF) has appointed Dr Steven Devaney and Dr Anupam Nanda from the School of Real Estate & Planning, along with researchers Professor Pat McAllister and Dr Nicola Livingstone from UCL, to investigate how liquidity varies across international real estate markets. Liquidity is a key factor in private commercial real estate investment, affecting pricing and investment strategies.  It varies over time and between individual assets in the private real estate market.  It also varies between different cities and countries, but research is currently lacking on such differences and the extent to which they are priced. 

The research is the latest to be funded by the 2011-2015 IPF Research Programme.  It follows a recently completed major project on liquidity in the UK real estate market but differs from the UK study in terms of both geographical scope and research methods.  A major part of the newly-commissioned study is the qualitative investigation of transaction processes and costs in different international markets, which will complement analysis of quantitative indicators by the research team.  The project will be completed and research findings launched before the end of 2015.
