Are Non-Traditional Property Types Real Estate?
The Real Estate Research Institute (RERI) invites proposals for research projects addressing the question: Are non-traditional property types “real estate” and what are their characteristics? The characteristics in question include the risk and return properties of non-traditional property types, the correlations of their returns with traditional property types and other asset classes, and other potentially important aspects of these asset for investors. Non-traditional property types include self-storage, senior housing, student housing, medical office, data centers, billboards, lab space, cell towers, prisons, etc. Proposals may consider either US or non-US property markets (or both).
