Office Rent Determinants: A Hedonic Panel Analysis

Author

  • Fuerst, Franz

Abstract

It has been frequently observed that office markets are subject to particularly high fluctuations in rents and vacancy levels, thus exposing real estate investors to considerable risk regarding expected future income streams. This paper analyzes the determinants of office rents and their variability over time and across sub-markets of a city using empirical data from New York City to gain additional insight into the rent price formation and its stability across space and over time.
