Is There a Term Structure? Empirical Evidence from Shanghai Office Rental Market


This paper mainly conducts an empirical study of the term structure of the Shanghai office rental market. Based on 555 executed contracts in the Shanghai office rental market from 2005 to 2008, the building quality and micro location are controlled, which are generally omitted in previous studies, through ranking of buildings and dividing the sample into 11 small central business districts (CBDs). The empirical results show that there is a downward term structure in the Shanghai market, but it is not very consistent during the studied years.Term structure; Lease, Shanghai; Office rental
