The Financing of Corporate Real Estate: A Survey



The management of real estate assets owned by corporations has grown in importance over the past decade. Surveys have been published concerning the evaluation and decisionmaking in the leasing and purchasing of corporate assets. Little research, however, has been conducted to determine how executives finance real estate and the criteria used to make lease and purchase decisions. This study surveyed corporate real estate executives about the sources of funds to acquire real estate, the use and evaluation of leases, the use and evaluation of sale-leaseback arrangements and the use of tax-deferred exchanges of real property.
