Real Estate Principles: A Value Approach Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Real Estate Principles: A Value Approach demonstrates how value is central to virtually all real estate decision-making, including whether and how to lease, buy, or mortgage a property acquisition; whether to renovate, refinance, demolish or expand a property; and when and how to divest (sell, trade, or abandon) a property. Students using Ling and Archer should finish the course with a value-oriented framework, and a set of valuation and decision making tools, that can be applied in a variety of real-world situations. Real Estate Principles: A Value Approach provides students and instructors with the most modern, engaging and attractive textbook available on the subject, with helpful pedagogical features unmatched by any other title.
