2016 Manuscript Prize Winners

On behalf of the American Real Estate Society (ARES) and our entire leadership team, it is my pleasure to announce the winners of our 2016 Manuscript Prize Competition.  This year, more than 230 papers were presented at our 32nd Annual Meeting in Denver, CO.  153 of these were subsequently revised and nominated/submitted for consideration as a “Best Paper” recipient in one of our 21 distinct prize categories.  Submissions in each prize category were then evaluated by an expert panel of judges with unique knowledge of that area.  In each prize category, feedback was sought from at least 3 judges, with several categories requiring multiple rounds of evaluation to determine an ultimate winner.  I would like to thank this year’s manuscript prize sponsors, as well as all of you who served as judges, for your tremendous support and work on behalf of ARES.  In my opinion, the quality of the submissions was excellent, and the competition across many of the categories was incredibly close.  We are very proud of this year’s slate of winning papers – it is quite possibly the best set of collective research ever recognized by our annual prize committee.  Without further ado, your 2016 ARES Manuscript Prize Award recipients are:
