  • Human-Machine Synergy in Real Estate Similarity Concept

    • Abstract: The issue of similarity in the real estate market is a widely recognized aspect of analysis, yet it remains underexplored in scientific research. This study aims to address this gap by introducing the concept of a Property Cognitive Information System (PCIS), which offers an innovative approach to analyzing similarity in the real estate market. The PCIS introduces non-classical and alternative solutions, departing from the conventional data analysis practices commonly employed in the real estate market. Moreover, the study delves into the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in the PCIS. The paper highlights the value added by the PCIS, specifically discussing the validity of using automatic ML-based solutions to objectify the results of synergistic data processing in the real estate market. Furthermore, the article establishes a set of essential assumptions and recommendations that contribute to a well-defined and interpretable notion of similarity in the context of human-machine analyses. By exploring the intricacies of similarity in the real estate market through the innovative PCIS and AI-based solutions, this research seeks to broaden the understanding and applicability of data analysis techniques in this domain.

  • Financial Efficiency and Investor Behavior on the European Real Estate
           Market in the Rising Inflation Environment

    • Abstract: The pandemic, followed by the Russian aggression against Ukraine, caused rapid changes in the economy. European countries experienced unprecedented price increases, which resulted in a significant increase in the cost of capital. This resulted primarily in limited access to capital and a significant reduction in investments in the real estate market. In addition, investors began to withdraw capital from investments in the real estate market to other assets, encouraged by their rising rates of return. The article presents how the indicated circumstances translated into the financial efficiency of companies from the Real Estate sector. Listed companies of the European Economic Area in the years 2019-2022 were analyzed. Changes in the main accounting measures and market measures for individual countries as well as the characteristics of real estate market participants were analyzed.

  • COVID-19 Impact to Retail, Hospitality, and Office Space in Malaysia

    • Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted economies and industries worldwide, including the real estate sector. This study aims to assess the effects of the pandemic on commercial real estate prices in the Malaysian market. By examining variations in property types and considering key factors influencing pricing, the research contributes to a better understanding of the pandemic’s impact on the real estate market. To analyze the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on commercial real estate prices, a mixed-method approach was employed. The study combines data from direct real estate indices, which provide insights into property prices based on transaction data, and listed real estate, which includes publicly traded real estate investment trusts (REITs). By utilizing both sources, a comprehensive analysis of the market is achieved. The sample for this study consists of commercial real estate properties in the Malaysian market. It includes properties from various sectors, such as retail, hospitality, and office buildings. The sample is representative of the overall market and captures the different property types affected by the pandemic. The analysis begins by comparing direct real estate indices to highlight the limitations and potential biases associated with using these indices. It then examines the variations in commercial real estate prices during the COVID-19 outbreak, focusing on the different property types. Statistical techniques, such as regression analysis and trend analysis, are employed to identify patterns and quantify the impact on commercial real estate prices. The study’s main findings reveal that the retail and hospitality sectors experienced the most significant impact on commercial real estate prices during the COVID-19 pandemic. These sectors witnessed a substantial decline in property values due to restrictions, lockdown measures, and reduced consumer demand. Office buildings, although moderately affected, also experienced some decline in prices. This research contributes to the existing literature on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on commercial real estate prices, specifically in the Malaysian market. By combining data from direct and listed real estate sources, the study provides a comprehensive understanding of the variations in property prices across different sectors. The findings offer valuable insights for real estate investors, policymakers, and industry professionals in adapting to the changing market conditions and making informed decisions regarding commercial real estate investments. In conclusion, this article sheds light on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on commercial real estate prices in the Malaysian market. The research methodology, which combines data from direct and listed real estate, allows for a comprehensive analysis of property variations among different sectors. The findings emphasize the significant impact on the retail and hospitality sectors, while showing office buildings to have been moderately affected. It also provides important insights for stakeholders in the real estate industry, enabling them to make informed decisions and develop appropriate strategies.

  • The Effect of Price Anchoring on the Housing Market Based on Studies of
           Local Markets in Poland

    • Abstract: The article attempts to explain market levels of housing prices by supplementing the set of typical objective explanatory variables with variables of behavioral background. The proposed explanatory variables reflect the anchoring effect of prices, understood as the acceptance by market participants of such price levels that are justified not only in terms of socio-economic factors, but also in levels entrenched in their minds. The purpose of the study is to show that the anchoring effect identified through behavioral economics can be generalized and applied to the market behavior of many market participants, and thus explain the weak correspondence between listed housing prices and their objective factors. The study covers 17 local real estate markets in Poland and employs econometric models built under slightly modified procedures of backward stepwise regression.

  • A Survey Analysis: The Current Real Estate Marketing Situation in the
           China Greater Bay Area in the Context of the COVID-19 Epidemic

    • Abstract: Real estate in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (also known as the Greater Bay Area, GBA) - a good representation of China’s advanced and developed urban agglomeration - has received considerable attention from the international community in recent years. However, the real estate market has been under extraordinary stress due to the expansion of COVID-19 in China, the strain on people’s livelihoods brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, and the Chinese government’s series of epidemic preventive initiatives. This study used a combination of qualitative and quantitative techniques, making use of interviews and questionnaires as instruments. It examined China’s GBA real estate market as the pandemic looms. The primary goals are to demonstrate the current state of the GBA’s real estate industry, pinpoint the factors holding back its growth, and estimate when the market might finally experience a breakthrough. Our findings suggested that the impact of COVID-19 on the GBA real estate sector in China is evident, but that it still has a bright future despite the negative externalities. This is because the city has a large population, high purchasing power, and is close to some of the most developed areas in southern China. This study establishes a baseline for studying the impact of China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative on the GBA real estate market in the future. It also provides valuable resources for China’s GBA’s real estate industry.

  • Property Damage Assessment Methods and Models due to Armed Aggression

    • Abstract: The paper deals with the conceptualization of the gross development value to assess direct damages and the restoration needs of lost, destroyed and damaged real estate as a result of armed aggression. A critical review of the existing practice of assessing property damage has been carried out. The measurement units of direct damages and the restoration needs, the evidence base used, the valuation methods for the determination of property damage are analyzed. The methodological potential of compounded cash flow models and the criteria for assessing their reliability is substantiated. A system of valuation models for calculating direct damages and restoration needs is proposed, depending on the category of real estate and market conditions at the valuation date. These valuation models are relatively simple to implement and understandable to the intended users of property damage valuation reports.

  • Detecting Abandoned Houses in Rural Areas using Multi-Source Data

    • Abstract: Abandoned houses have become a common feature of the local landscapes: the rising number of abandoned houses is a major challenge facing many counties in South Korea. Their presence negatively influences the neighborhood by undermining its aesthetic quality, depreciating the perception of safety in the neighborhood properties, and deepening the fiscal deficit of local financing. The detection of abandoned houses is the first step toward adequate housing management by local governments. This study aims to provide a cost-effective and prompt approach to identifying abandoned houses in rural areas. Multi-source data, that is, images and building registry data are utilized and a multi-input neural network is designed to adopt these heterogeneous datasets. Trained by the two source datasets, the proposed network achieves 86.2% accuracy in classifying abandoned houses, which is an acceptable performance level in administrative practice. The database of abandoned houses identified in this manner is expected to promote effective housing management by governments and ultimately contribute to mitigating vacancies in rural areas.

  • Estimation of the Utility Function of Money and Housing Based on the
           Cumulative Prospect Theory

    • Abstract: This article addresses the issue of the utility of money and the utility of housing with a value equivalent to that amount of money. The literature provides many reports on the shape of the utility function for money, but much less research has been devoted to the utility function for housing. The aim of this study was to estimate the utility function of money and housing according to the cumulative prospect theory (CPT) developed by Tversky and Kahneman (1992). Parameters alpha (α), beta (β), and lambda (λ) were estimated to compare the utility value of money and housing. The most important conclusions of the study are as follows: parameters alpha and beta were greater than 0 and less than 1 for both housing and money. Function v(x) was concave in the gain domain and convex in the loss domain, which is consistent with the CPT. The differences in the lambda parameter denoting loss aversion were not significant, and the value of the utility function was somewhat higher for money than for housing. This study was undertaken to estimate the CPT parameters for housing, which, according to the authors’ best knowledge, has not been investigated to date.

  • Forecasting the Volatility of Real Residential Property Prices in
           Malaysia: A Comparison of Garch Models

    • Abstract: The presence of volatility in residential property market prices helps investors generate substantial profit while also causing fear among investors since high volatility implies a high return with a high risk. In a financial time series, volatility refers to the degree to which the residential property market price increases or decreases during a particular period. The present study aims to forecast the volatility returns of real residential property prices (RRPP) in Malaysia using three different families of generalized autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (GARCH) models. The study compared the standard GARCH, EGARCH, and GJR-GARCH models to determine which model offers a better volatility forecasting ability. The results revealed that the GJR-GARCH (1,1) model is the most suitable to forecast the volatility of the Malaysian RRPP index based on the goodness-of-fit metric. Finally, the volatility forecast using the rolling window shows that the volatility of the quarterly index decreased in the third quarter (Q3) of 2021 and stabilized at the beginning of the first quarter (Q1) of 2023. Therefore, the best time to start investing in the purchase of real residential property in Malaysia would be the first quarter of 2023. The findings of this study can help Malaysian policymakers, developers, and investors understand the high and low volatility periods in the prices of residential properties to make better investment decisions.

  • Real Estate Appraisalusing the Liquidation Costmethod – A Case Study

    • Abstract: A real estate appraiser, using the liquidation cost method of the mixed approach in order to determine the value of real estate, analyzes, e.g. the value of post-demolition materials and the costs of liquidating components. The paper presents the problem of determining the costs of demolition works, which are correlated with the adopted demolition technology, the method of managing waste from post-demolition materials, and the costs incurred to maintain the occupational health and safety of employees and bystanders. Important elements of determining the demolition costs include the type of demolition waste and the relevant classification subgroup, the used demolition technology, and also the method of managing waste materials. The publication presents a calculation example that concerns the cost analysis of the demolition of a building structure. The demolition was performed using the mechanical method. The presented analyses cover different variants of carrying out works, whereas optimization refers to the different types of equipment used, available employee resources, and the various ways of recycling/managing post-demolition materials (storing, resale or processing). The conducted analyzes allow a multi-faceted approach to the subject matter to be obtained, and also an optimal solution to be selected by the participants of the investment process.

  • Housing and the Pandemic: How Has Covid-19 Influenced Residents’
           Needs and Aspirations'

    • Abstract: Satisfactory housing conditions define, in many aspects, people’s comfort and a high standard of living. The psychological and social characteristics of residents strongly determine housing needs and preferences. They also depend on economic, spatial, technical, and cultural factors. The Covid-19 pandemic, which humankind had been experiencing for two years, influenced all spheres of human life, especially inhabitation. The functional program of homes has changed, as well as public spaces, transportation and social ties. While the future is uncertain, the many changes provoked by the pandemic might become irreversible.This paper aims to present how the phenomena mentioned above have influenced the housing environment and residential preferences and trends that may follow. A survey conducted among Cracow residents in Autumn 2021 revealed a significant shift in lifestyles that corresponded with the change in residential needs, preferences and attitudes towards the housing environment. Working from home has induced redefining the use of particular rooms/spaces. For safety, families attempted to reorganize the entrance zone. Outdoor public spaces have become more appreciated following the trend of healthier everyday life. Over the long term, the pandemic experience may significantly influence the residential market.

  • Duration of the Rental Offer for Residential Property

    • Abstract: The rental market in Poland is underdeveloped, not subject to any statutory registers, and based primarily on small, private owners. The article estimates the duration of residential rental properties that have been reported to the listing exchange system using duration methods. Duration methods also allow the analysis to include those properties that were not rented at the time the analysis was completed, but their owners continued to report their willingness to rent. The article presents the results of the analysis of how long it takes to rent an apartment over the entire analysis period and in each year separately. The presented study is the first to examine the duration of residential real estate offerings for rent in the Polish market. Considering the entire analysis period, 25% of the reported apartments were rented in 7.3 weeks. The fastest 25% of rental offers were successful (rented) in 2019 – 4.86 weeks. The longest apartment owners waited for a tenant was in 2020 – more than 8 weeks, which was undoubtedly influenced by the lockdown of the entire country, and the change in the organization of work and study (remote work and studies, which did not require being in the city).

  • The Impact of Investor Sentiment on Housing Prices and the Property Stock
           Index Volatility in South Africa

    • Abstract: While prior studies have examined the predictive effect of macroeconomic and country risk components on property stock index dynamics, limited explanations exist in the literature regarding the time-varying effect of investor sentiment on housing prices. Accordingly, this study assesses the impact of investor sentiment on housing properties’ returns and the effect of investor sentiment on the conditional volatility of housing price indices under different market conditions, using GARCH, GJR-GARCH, E-GARCH and Markov-switching VAR models. We found investor sentiment to significantly impact the risk premium of the property returns, where property returns increased with positive changes in investor sentiment, and conditional volatility of property returns decreased with the same changes in investor sentiment. Investor sentiment exerts positive predictive influences on the prices of small and medium houses, in both bullish and bearish market conditions but does not affect the large housing market segment. This makes the implementation of risk-related diversification across small and medium real estate portfolios more effective than large real estate portfolios. Our findings show that investor sentiment is a plausible driver of mass investor redemption actions under conditions of uncertainty.

  • The Impact of Factors on Residential Land Prices: A Case Study in Tu Son
           City, Vietnam

    • Abstract: The study aims to determine the influencing factors and their impact levels on residential land prices. The research investigated 241 officials, real estate investors, appraisers, and real estate brokers on factors affecting residential land prices. Research results have shown 13 groups with 45 factors affecting the price of residential land. The impact rates of the factor groups range from 1.43% to 23.65%. The COVID-19 pandemic factor group has the strongest impact on land prices, followed by other factor groups, including upgrading administrative units; formulation and implementation of the planning; the real estate market; financial – economics; credit; real estate brokerage; infrastructure; location of the land parcel; particular factors; juridical factors; environment and social security. To harmonize the interests of the State, investors, and land users when valuing land, it is necessary to pay attention to the factors that strongly impact land prices first, and then the smaller ones.

  • Real Estate Market Perceptions, Housing and Investment Plans of Students
           and Graduates

    • Abstract: The purpose of this study is to identify the knowledge of the real estate market by students and graduates and to find out their housing and investment plans. A literature study relating to the real estate market was conducted. The diagnostic survey method was used to determine the housing and investment plans of students and graduates, their expectations regarding changes in housing policy, and their level of knowledge of basic concepts and relationships related to the real estate market. The survey was conducted in March 2022 among students and graduates of Wroclaw University of Economics and Business. The great majority of the respondents consider the housing policy in Poland to need changes, mainly in the direction of greater support for young people, lowering the costs of mortgage loans and reducing the formalities associated with the construction of real estate. Moreover, research indicates that less than half of young people are able to fully support themselves during or shortly after graduation. Only one in four respondents had a disposable income of more than PLN 2,000. Many students and graduates plan to purchase real estate in the future, and nearly 60% of respondents intend to finance the purchase with a mortgage.

  • Analysis of Marketing Tools Used by Real Estate Development Companies
           Using Secret Client Research – a Case Study From Krakow

    • Abstract: The aim of the paper is to find out what marketing tools are used by development companies operating in Poland to attract customers and whether the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on marketing can be observed. The secondary aim of the paper is to determine whether developers building investments in the area of the restricted use area (O.O.U.) use more marketing tools to convince potential customers to buy. For this purpose, a secret client survey was used and the research sample consists of four development companies and four of their investments in Kraków. The research conducted led to the disclosure of marketing tools used by developers. The survey shows that some elements of home branding, storytelling and banner ads, social media ads, ads on websites and portals and information brochures are being used. Through the use of virtual walks, housing visualization and the use of social media in advertising, the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on marketing in the industry can be seen. The analysis shows that companies creating developments in the restricted use area are not using more tricks to attract customers. All developers selected for the study use a similar number of marketing tools.

  • A Decomposition approach for Assessing Land Leverage and Depreciation Rate
           on the Real Estate Market – Evidence from Warsaw Poland

    • Abstract: ABSTRACTMost property valuation research concerns entire properties consisting of land and structures. However, different features of land and capital as factors of production determine different patterns shaping their value and their different impact on the total price of real estate. In this article the hedonic decomposition model, which controls for differences in housing quality, is applied to decompose the price of an apartment into the land and structure components. The depreciation rate of housing was calculated and taken into account to properly isolate the dynamics of land over time. This allowed us to compare the house price index with the dynamics of land and structure. The empirical analysis was carried out on the data for the city of Warsaw.
