Drew Sanderford, Planning and Real Estate professor, just won the 2018 American Real Estate Society's 2018 ARES Manuscript Prize Competition in the CoStar Data category for his paper “The Impact of School Quality Vectors on Multifamily Housing,” which he co-authored with Spenser J. Robinson, Central Michigan University; Jeremy Gabe, University of Auckland; and Emily M. O'Halloran, Central Michigan University. 

 This year, 270 papers were presented at the ARES 39th Annual Meeting in Bonita Springs, Florida.  Of that group, 155 were subsequently revised and nominated/submitted for consideration as a “Best Paper” recipient in one of 22 categories. Submissions in each prize category were evaluated by an expert panel of judges with unique knowledge of that area, with several categories requiring multiple rounds of evaluation to determine an ultimate winner. The award recipients in the CoStar Data category received an award of $2,500, which was sponsored by the CoStar Group for a paper on any topic using CoStar data.
