A paper by CBE faculty members Dr. Ray Brastow, Dr. Bennie Waller, and Dr. Scott Wentland is referenced in an article that appears on the real estate section of the MSN web site. The paper, "Estimating the Effect of Crime Risk on Property Values and Time on Market: Evidence from Megan's Law in Virginia," examines how living near a sex offender affects both the price for which one can sell a home and the time it takes to sell.

The article is titled, "7 neighborhood threats to your home's value."
