Abstract

Metrics using repeat sale data assume that frequently and infrequently sold properties are similar in capital expenditures, maintenance and other characteristics. Value-added investors concentrate on repositioning properties which requires capital investment and managerial skills. Returns using repeat sales likely overstate appreciation by misattributing this investment. Present results show that frequently and infrequently traded properties represent different property populations. The first sale of a repeat transaction sells at a significant discount compared to single sale properties while the second sale transacts at a premium. The results suggest that repeat sale indices may overstate price appreciation and represent returns for a different, relatively small cohort of properties when compared to the large number of properties that transact only once during a specific time period.
