“Golf Course Communities as Multisided Markets: Ownership Implications,” by Bruce K. Cole, Ph.D., and David Hueber, Ph.D., explains the connection of golf courses to land value in golf course communities and the unique challenges that homeowners associations face as they try to reconfigure golf course operations and preserve property values within their communities. The authors’ study suggests that HOA ownership of a course may have a negative impact on sale prices in a golf community.

Andrew Stables, is part one in a two-part series on the valuation of iconic national landmarks. It summarizes the valuation profession’s debate as to whether historically or culturally significant structures and land areas have a special type of value that is higher than their market value. The authors give a detailed look into the income and expense components of these special-purpose properties.
“They Paved Paradise: Appraising a Parking Lot,” by Barry A. Diskin, Ph.D., MAI, AI-GRS, and David C. Lennhoff, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, discusses valuation of parking lots and the elements of a parking lot operation that are the subject of the real property appraisal; the article offers a streamlined case study to highlight the components of parking lot analysis.
