Environmental Contamination and Industrial Real Estate Prices
This article is the winner of the Industrial Real Estate manuscript prize (sponsored by Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS) presented at the American Real Estate Society Annual Meeting. This article examines the effects of environmental contamination on the sales prices of industrial properties. Two general questions are addressed. The first is the extent to which sales prices may be impacted by contamination. The second is whether sales price effects due to contamination persist subsequent to the remediation of previously contaminated industrial properties. Using data on industrial property sales in Southern California, this study estimates sales price models that address these two questions. The results show that there are statistically significant impacts on property values in the period before and during remediation, but that these effects dissipate subsequent to cleanup.
