The Role of Co-skewness in the Pricing of Real Estate

Registered author(s):

    The current study investigates whether systematic skewness offers an alternative perspective as to why the risk-adjusted returns on real estate should be similar to that for stocks. This is not a trivial issue since an affirmative finding implies that the authors might be incorrectly measuring real estate risk from both a pricing and a portfolio allocation perspective. A multivariate test of the A. Kraus-R. Litzenberger (1976) model is used to investigate this skewness proposition with the K-L CAPM tested against several alternative versions of the CAPM. The study finds that the Kraus-Litzenberger model offers additional insights into the measurement of real estate risk. Evidence is also found that both the zero beta and the consumption-oriented CAPM hold, which is consistent with the recent literature in real estate. Copyright 1992 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
