A study by Fletcher (1993) exaillines the return rates and portfolio characteristics of 18 CREPs from 1983 through 1988 using regression analysis and paired comparisons of portfolios of CREFs. The most significant observation made in terms of property characteristics and return rates is that the size of the real estate investment was found to be strongly positively related to both appreciation and total return over the sample period.

Using the returns on two of the oldest and largest CREFs, they find the risk-adjusted return performance of the two pooled funds to be most superior to the performance of highly diversified stock and bond indexes in an inflationary environment. They also find that the addition of these funds to porfolios of stock and bond indexes consistently reduces overall portfolio risk while increasing overall portfolio return. These findings are consistent with previously discussed results on the benefits of using equity real estate to diversify the traditional stock and bond portfolio.
