6th ReCapNet Conference: Real Estate Markets and Capital Markets


The Leibniz Network on Real Estate Markets and Capital Markets (ReCapNet) focuses on the interactions between real estate markets and capital markets. Researchers from different disciplines and with different methodological approaches examine the importance of international capital markets for real estate markets.

The research topics of the network include, but are not limited to: the impact of financial market conditions on housing and commercial real estate markets; development opportunities and financial markets; and the stability of real estate and capital markets.On October 24 – 25, 2014, the sixth conference of the network will take place at ZEW in Mannheim. This conference is open to all researchers interested in the relationship between real estate markets and capital markets.

We welcome contributions from finance and economics, as well as from economic and urban geography, regional science, urban development planning, demography, and law.

Potential topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Spill-overs between real estate markets and capital markets
  • Financing behaviour and stability of real estate markets
  • Urban development and new ownership structures in housing markets
  • Performance and risk of real estate-based capital market instruments
  • Regulation of real estate-based capital market instruments
  • Financing behaviour, corporate strategy and performance of real estate companies

Studies that concentrate on China or other Asian countries are particularly welcome.
