Is there a Real Estate Bubble in Wisconsin?
Released: Jan. 27, 2006
MILWAUKEE – Dr. Mark Eppli, professor of finance and Bell Chair in Real Estate at Marquette University, will be featured at two Fox Valley area luncheons in February. Dr. Eppli will share his insight about the possibility of a real estate bubble in Wisconsin. Both events are open to the public, but registration is required.
Dr. Eppli’s presentation will focus on residential real estate and is intended for both real estate professionals and those who might be buying or selling their homes in the near future. He will answer questions following his presentation.
Dr. Eppli is widely published on academic and professional real estate topics. His research focuses on shopping center economics, single-family housing valuation, commercial mortgage default and new urbanism, among others. Since 1987, Professor Eppli and his coauthors have received grants and research awards totaling over $330,000.
Since Dr. Eppli’s arrival at Marquette, the university has approved a real estate major, a move supported by the Bell Chair Advisers—a group of more than 190 professionals working in real estate and related industries. Eppli has also been instrumental in founding the Associates in Commercial Real Estate (ACRE) program, a unique partnership among Marquette University, the Urban League of Milwaukee, the United Community Center and the Initiative for a Competitive Milwaukee. ACRE provides African-Americans, Latinos, Native Americans and other underrepresented groups in commercial real estate unprecedented access to industry leaders, academic training and opportunities for paid internships.
