Valuation Skills Course

If you want to be able to estimate property valuations and determine the highest and best use of a property, then this 12-week soft skills course is for you!  It is ideal if you are wanting to excel in property listings, both commercial and residential and should be taken by all Principal Property Practitioners so that they can guide their intern estate agents on how to prepare a valuation estimate, analyse the market and be able to determine property values.

Success in real estate depends largely on the number of sole mandates that you as a property practitioner attain, from single dwellings to retail and new developments.  This course will enable you to produce a professional estimated valuation report for an investor, giving him unbiased “highest & best use” of the property, and securing his confidence and trust in your ability to take his investment from base level and achieve his required return.

We provide you with learning material as well as videos, face-to-face events and inter-active webinars.
