This module equips students with the theoretical underpinnings and practical tools to gather, analyse and evaluate appropriate data for sound property market analysis. It builds on knowledge gained in the Property Economics module. Students collect selective market evidence using diverse sources, including industry databases like CoStar and EGi. Students learn to critically analyse market evidence, clean data, trim outliers and compute and interpret descriptive statistics. Students learn the basics of econometric, hedonic and ARIMA modelling techniques. Students use statistical analysis, hedonic modelling and trend analysis to evaluate the situation and prospects for diverse residential, commercial and leisure markets.
To achieve credit for this module, students must be able to:
- Critically examine market data to identify performance and trends;
- Evaluate the likely impact of changes in the economy on market performance;
- Explain the interactions of the UK property market and the macro economy.
