Who Could Benefit?


An on-line course for those who work with valuation reports in property or for property clients and who need to understand the valuation approaches & methods, jargon and drivers per property type better, to enable better informed decision making and more confident discussions with a valuer, or help with the production and sales of valuation systems.

We explain the IVS-recognised valuation standards, the valuation methods that fall under those standards and valuation techniques or models. We make delegates comfortable with the jargon and explain the various drivers including by per property type. We use examples to bring the theory to life. The course is taught by Kaushik Shah and Philip Walker, a senior accredited and highly respected valuer.


Understanding Commercial Property Valuations

This one-day course is aimed at people who process, commission or consume commercial property valuations and who would like to understand valuation reports more fully, enable them to derive value more effectively. This course goes from macro to micro. It describes the drivers of value, distinguishing between Price, Market Value and Worth. The course explains the RICS valuation standards and guidance, how things are measured (do you know?) and describes the three valuation approaches and the five underlying valuation methods for residential and commercial. We can cover methods used in the UK and the rest of the world such as Germany.

The course explains what is usually used in what situation, and why. All the jargon you are likely to find in a valuation report is explained. We provide real-life examples to bring the valuations to life, and we work through the various valuation types, situations and property types. We finish with an outlook on how valuations are changing.

Course book provided on the day.

Taught by Philip Walker, FRICS and Kaushik Shah.

My team and I found the in-house course Understanding Valuations very useful and the facilitator very knowledgeable and experienced. We were able to customise the training to complement our business. I recommend the Valuations course and Property Overview for anyone in the industry seeking to understand the “language and mystery” of real estate and valuations.
