2  Would historic designation be expected to increase or decrease property values?  Results for selected Nebraska neighborhoods  Results for Lincoln with repeat sales model CBA Bureau of Business Research 2

3  The expected influence is uncertain  There are reasons to expect historic designation would increase property values  And there are other reasons to expect that historic designation would decrease property values CBA Bureau of Business Research 3

4  Reasons that historic designation would be expected to increase property values ◦ Provides “insurance” of future neighborhood quality ◦ “Cachet” or prestige CBA Bureau of Business Research 4

5  Reasons that historic designation would be expected to decrease property values ◦ Restrictions on alterations ◦ Restrictions on conversions CBA Bureau of Business Research 5

9  Strong growth in property values also was observed in the Lincoln Haymarket and the Omaha Rail and Commerce District ◦ But, we lacked comparison groups to complete the analysis  Bottom Line: Results indicate that historic designation of neighborhoods is 1) unlikely to lower property values in Nebraska and 2) may in some cases raise values CBA Bureau of Business Research 9

10  Published paper included repeat sales model ◦ Model focused on sales prices for properties that were sold more than once  This approach better controls for characteristics of property  Combined results for all 9 Lincoln designated neighborhoods CBA Bureau of Business Research 10

11  Results from estimating the repeat sales model…. ◦ No Significant impact of historic designation on property values in the 9 Lincoln neighborhoods  Results of the repeat sales model reinforce part of the earlier “Bottom Line”…. ◦ Historic designation of neighborhoods does not lower property values CBA Bureau of Business Research 11
