SSUD71-107: Property Investment and Valuation

Description

The subject will introduce students to the theory and practice of property valuation as a professional process in accordance with current International Valuation standards. The subject is designed to assist students to develop an understanding of the property market, the role of the profession and the methods of valuation used to determine the value of a range of legal interests in property. At this introductory stage, these interests will relate to open market freehold interests. The subject will draw upon the current property market and the assessment will require students to collect and analyse market data from a range of defined sources. Students will also be given the opportunity to acquire the necessary analytical tools to work through property market specific supply and demand issues, identify future market trends and objectively evaluate current issues affecting property being valued. The summative (graded) assessment will be achieved by the completion, at an introductory professional standard, of two comprehensive valuation reports based on field inspections.
