The module is designed to provide a quick introduction to a broad range of economic concepts and methods of valuation, so that you acquire the ability to be able to read property markets and understand the related data before manipulating the different methods of valuation.

In other words, you are encouraged to recognise that the process of valuation does not occur in a vacuum; the economic context is everything!
