Edward Graham Thomas Edward (Ted) Graham, Baron Graham of Edmonton, PC (born 26 March 1925) is a Labour Co-operative politician.
Graham was educated at the Co-operative College and held several positions in the co-operative movement from 1939, becoming National Secretary for the Jr. and William W. Hall Jr., focuses on ways to examine real estate values following such natural disasters. In the article the authors look at various hurricanes that have vastly affected areas in the United States United States, officially United States of America, republic (2005 est. pop. 295,734,000), 3,539,227 sq mi (9,166,598 sq km), North America. The United States is the world's third largest country in population and the fourth largest country in area. , specifically along the Atlantic Coast, and the adverse effects they have had in relation to housing prices.
Homebuyers don't normally make adjustments in their willingness to buy, or sellers price expectations, based on the results of one or two hurricane strikes, say the authors.
However, an increased frequency of strikes in an area does seem to have an impact on housing transactions during the following months. Homebuyers and sellers are hence responding to their perception of increasing environmental risk factors in these areas.
"Assuming hurricane landfalls are random events for a given coastal community, a single storm or even a pair of storms should have no appreciable effects on property value," the authors note. "However, we hold that the increased frequency of strikes in our study area does not favor housing prices. We believe that housing market participants in that region may no longer view the landfalls as random, and consequently, home prices may fall."
Based on the softening real estate market in areas hit by recurrent hurricanes, Graham and Hall developed a standard pricing model to determine if there was, in fact, a relationship between these hurricanes and the market, and if so to what degree. The study concluded there is a significant relationship between repeated hurricanes and the home market, such that after these occurrences the market became weakened. However, the study does not draw the conclusion that market falters solely because of the hurricanes.
