Research Title: Understanding Real Estate Pricing and Tax Policies
Description: We are looking to start a research project that involves estimating a correlation between real estate prices and the associated city imposed real estate taxes. This project will involve gathering of data from Streeteasy/Zillow/Trulia and running some basic statistical analyses. The goal is to see if the taxes imposed by the city are proportionate to the sale prices of apartments and how they are affecting overall sales. We will first start with New York city and then expand to the rest of the country if possible. The requirements are straightforward. You need to have some interest in finance/economics/operations management and basic statistical analyses.
Relevant Areas of Study: Economics
Operations Management
Pre-requisites: Interest in macro economic issues, real estate operations, financial markets.
