Abstract: This study estimates optimized portfolios on an efficient frontier of real estate investment in the retail sector of fifty-eight metropolitan markets (MSAs), using quarterly sample data covering 1987- 2000. The efficient opportunity sets and associated percentage allocations are determined for the entire sample of fifty-eight MSAs, as well as for subsets for each region of the country. Findings indicate that some regions offer much higher performance in a risk / return occupancy context than others. Also, the occupancy risk / return performance improves substantially when allocations are not limited to particular regions, suggesting that the retail space markets are relatively segmented.
