The education of the real estate professional is changing and aligning itself more closely with the world of business. This book takes a new approach to property appraisal by exploring the pricing mechanism in this changing context. It: develops the notion of the pricing mechanism in relation to property covers practical issues of comparison and the real problems in applying valuation theory explores calculations - including social and environmental worth - ignored in other texts As real estate professionals now advise both on strategic and operational aspects of built assets, they must take into account practices of other investment markets and see investors as competitors to owner-occupiers. Both owner-occupiers and investors have to assess accurately how their buildings perform but also be aware of wider sustainability issues, and social and environmental responsibilities. Real Estate Appraisal: from value to worth meets these new demands by examining the latest techniques of the marketplace; developing an understanding of both market appraisal and worth; and highlighting the emerging role of sustainability as a driver for decision-making in real estate. Written by a group of highly experienced lecturers and professionals at the cutting edge of investment practice, the book has an accessible style and authoritative coverage, for both students and practitioners facing changes in established ways of working.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The dissertation analyses whether or not and to what extent the managers of German open-ended property funds see a necessity for amendments to the current German property valuation standards in the context of an increasing demand for European convergence in valuation practice. A critical review of the literature is structured in two chapters: (1) European valuation convergence; and (2) legal background and valuation standards in Germany in a European context. Three main drivers for European convergence have been identified, namely international investment, International Accounting Standards (IAS) and the new Basel Capital Accord. The main standard setting organisations with a European scope are the IVSC, TEGoVA and RICS. German standards are highly regulated by law (BauGB, KAGG, WertV, WertR). However, the relevant valuation basis in Germany mainly complies with its international counterpart. Three methods are outlined in the German standards (WertV), but additional approaches are allowed according to the guidelines (WertR). Systematic differences could be identified between the German investment method and relevant international approaches. The main German specialities in this regard are separation of value for land and building, consideration of only one income (sustainable long-term rent) and arriving at gross values. The Cost Approach is meaningless for the valuation of open-ended funds. Alternative international approaches are Term & Reversion, Layer, Equivalent Yield and DCF. 13 rating scale and 9 open-ended questions were extracted from the above headings and were assessed by 8 managers of open-ended property funds. Further in depth information could be gathered by semi-structured and unstructured interviews with 5 of these managers and 3 valuers. The survey indicated that the German fund managers are quite satisfied with the German standards (WertV) and only minor problems arise. A - 1 - European Convergence in Property Valuation: How do the German Open-Ended Property Funds measure up? need for modification could not be identified. DCF is used occasionally by fund managers, but the appropriateness for neutral valuations is seen with scepticism. Traditional British direct capitalisation methods are unpopular in Germany. Problems arise with the transparency in Germany due to data protection and sometimes with the qualification of German valuers. The emergence of a two tier market (domestic and international) is [...]

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 2,7, Nurtingen University, course: Real Estate Management, 15 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The international globalization in the real estate business started much later than in other businesses. Historic grown specifics, topographic and cultural differences as well as judicial, fiscal, and political basic conditions, which do not have an international standardization are reasons for this reserve. But today many real estate companies and investors act worldwide, so that the real estate business and so the property valuation too cannot longer be seen as a national issue only. Germany has an attractive real estate market for foreign investors because of its steady currency, appealing lease contract structures and a rent growth potential. In recent years foreign investors have increased their presence in the real estate business in Germany and so there is a rising demand for property valuations using international methods. The conventional national German systems of valuation are inadequately. A standardization of valuation methods or at least comparable national valuation methods is an essential condition for foreign institutional investors. Standardized methods are necessary to ensure the transparency for all participants in the real estate market. The purpose of this paper is to point out established international property valuation methods. At first I will describe the important terms and definitions which are used for valuation methods, followed by an explanation why and when a property valuation will be necessary. I will also show you several valuation standards which have developed and I will deliver an insight of different international property valuation methods with short simplified example which shall clarify each particular procedure.

The United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development (UNCED), held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, spawned a multitude of pro grammes aimed at assessing, managing and conserving the earth's biological diversity. One important issue addressed at the conference was the mountain environment. A specific feature of high mountains is the so-called alpine zone, i. e. the treeless regions at the uppermost reaches. Though covering only a very small proportion of the land surface, the alpine zone contains a rela tively large number of plants, animals, fungi and microbes which are specifi cally adapted to cold environments. This zone contributes fundamentally to the planet's biodiversity and provides many resources for mountain dwelling as well as lowland people. However, rapid and largely man-made changes are affecting mountain ecosystems, such as soil erosion, losses of habitat and genetic diversity, and climate change, all of which have to be addressed. As stated in the European Community Biodiversity Strategy, "the global scale of biodiversity reduction or losses and the interdependence of different species and ecosystems across national borders demands concerted international action". Managing biodiversity in a rational and sustainable way needs basic knowledge on its qualitative and quantitative aspects at local, regional and global scales. This is particularly true for mountains, which are distributed throughout the world and are indeed hot spots of biodiversity in absolute terms as well as relative to the surrounding lowlands.

Real estate activity across national boundaries (investment, development and asset management) is firmly established as a major component of global economic activity. International Real Estate provides the understanding of real estate strategies and transactions that cross national boundaries. International organizations lament the narrow perspective of professionals in the real estate field, which stems from training that takes a parochial rather than international view of the practices and processes of real estate markets. This book takes an explicitly international perspective to the decision-making process leading to final 'accept' or 'reject' investment decisions. It will be the first to adopt an institutional approach that directly addresses the problems of how to identify and avoid the main pitfalls of cross-border investment in real estate. The key to understanding international real estate comes from understanding the impact on investment and management decisions of differences in the formal and informal 'rules of the game'. The authors define the key feature of international real estate as the institutions that frame, facilitate or impede investment in land and buildings across national boundaries.

The book focuses on one particular set of techniques for valuing the environment, namely the questionnaire-based Contingent Valuation Method (CVM), which asks what people would be willing to pay for an environmental good or attribute, or willing to accept for its loss. Though competing methodsof environmental valuation exist, CVM is currently central to the assessment of environmental damage and has been the subject of considerable debate. Contingent valuation evolved as a method to quantify the benefits of non-marketed environmental goods and attributes so that they could be entered directly in benefitSHcost analysis. The 1980s saw an explosion in the number of CV studies in the USA, the establishment of a more substantial Europeanliterature, and the first developing world applications. Academic debate intensified, and CV was further accepted into the institutional decision-making process. The Exxon Valdez disaster raised awareness of the method, as the State of Alaska commissioned expert CV assessments of the resultantnon-use damages and the Exxon Company commissioned expert assessments of the validity of the CV approach. The disaster marked the consolidation of the division in the academic perception of the CV method. Institutional involvement and the use of CV in official damage assessments meant that thisdebate was of more than academic interest. This volume has been written at a time of heated debate over the CV method. It contains specially written papers from both sides of that debate, as well as from commentators who see it as an interesting experimental tool regardless of the question of absolute validity of estimates. The bookembraces the theoretical, methodological, empirical, and institutional aspects of the current debate. It covers US, European, and developing country applications, and the institutional frameworks within which CVM studies are applied. Questionnaries are reprinted in the case study chapters whereappropriate, to allow evaluation of the questionnaire and to complete the illustration of the methodological issues.
