David C. Ling - Have Unlisted Property Funds Outperformed Public and Private Market Benchmarks? (The Answer is No!)

David Ling is the Ken and Linda McGurn Chair, Professor of Real Estate, and Director of the Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) program in the Department of Finance at the University of Florida. He teaches courses in real estate finance and investment at the graduate level as well as the undergraduate real estate principles course.

Professor Ling’s publications include articles on real estate investment trusts, private commercial real estate investments including closed-end funds, performance evaluation, Section 1031 exchanges, and commercial mortgage markets and pricing. His research has been published in high-ranking general interest finance journals, leading field journals in finance and economics, as well as the leading real estate focused journals. His textbook (co-authored with Wayne Archer) titled Real Estate Principles: A Value Approach (6th ed.) is the most widely used principles of real estate textbook at universities that offer at least a four-year undergraduate degree. Professor Ling has long been active in attempting to bridge the gap between academic and industry orientated research.

Professor Ling served as the President of the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association in 2000 and was co-editor of the Associations’ journal, Real Estate Economics, from 2000-2006. In 2010, he was awarded the David Ricardo Medal by the American Real Estate Society.

This award is presented annually by the Directors of the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association for “outstanding contributions to the field of real estate academics.”

Professor Ling holds an MBA in finance and Ph.D. in real estate and economics from the Ohio State University.
