Applications for Doctoral Students to Participate in the ARES 2015 Meetings



Steven Laposa, James R. Webb American Real Estate Society Foundation, Director of Development


Earlier this year I sent out an email blast that asked a simple question, “…do the numbers 20, 43, 32, and 45 mean anything to you?” I replied that these numbers are not random rental rates for some obscure real estate market but individuals, people you’ve seen and will see at our annual ARES conferences. Who are they? The first three numbers represent the number of doctoral students who attended the last three ARES conferences and 45 represents the expected number of doctoral students scheduled to attend our San Diego conference this April.

The Beracha, Hardin & Johnson Buy vs. Rent Index is an index designed to signal whether current market conditions favor buying or renting a home in terms of wealth creation over a fixed holding period in a particular market relative to historical market conditions and alternative investment opportunities.




Our April 14 - 18, 2015,  Annual Meeting will be held at the waterfront Sanibel Harbour Marriott in Fort Myers, FL. Expect perfect sunsets from your spacious room lanai or at ARES waterside social functions. April is SW Florida's best weather month, not too hot and definitely not chilly.
The hotel features an award winning spa, tennis courts, three large outdoor swimming pools, pontoon boat, kayak jet ski and bike rentals, fishing, hiking nearby nature trails and many other activities. The hotel will operate a complimentary shuttle service to a beach on Sanibel Island during several days of our meeting. You can check out the hotel at 

The success of the ARES annual meeting is dependent on the involvement of thought leaders from a diverse group of academic disciplines, global points of view and professional practices. We solicit and need your participation to ensure the 2015 meeting in Florida generates a demonstration of robust scholarly activity, discussions and panels culminating in an excellent program. To augment what promises to be a memorable 31st program: Submit complete paper, proposal or abstract by December 5, 2014; serve as a discussant, panelist, or chair a session. (Priority will be given to submissions received by November 15, 2014; authors are asked to prioritize multiple submissions). Attached is a Registration/Membership Dues Form which should be filled out and returned to our Clemson Member Services Office by January 15, 2015 in order to participate in the 2015 Annual Meeting Program.

 President’s Message
By: Michael J. Seiler, K. Dane Brooksher Endowed Chair of Real Estate, The College of William & Mary
It is my great honor, privilege, and pleasure to serve as the 2014-2015 ARES President. I will attempt to give back to ARES the countless benefits it has given to me over the years. While this will not be possible, I look forward to trying. Another unattainable goal of mine is to be a mentor and friend to people the way Jim Webb was to me. I want to continue to convey the openness of ARES and welcome all serious academics and practitioners no matter their background. Invite your colleagues to join ARES, and when you see someone standing alone at an ARES gathering, please go up to them and introduce yourself. READ MORE
