Preface

The study and practice of real estate draws on a multitude of disciplines including architecture, urban and regional planning, building construction, urban economics, law, and finance. This diversity of perspectives presents a challenge to the instructor of a real estate principles course. Depending on their backgrounds and training and on the interests of the students, some instructors may choose to emphasize the legal concepts that define and limit the potential value of real estate. Other instructors may focus more on licensing and brokerage issues (popular topics with many students) or on the investment decision-making process. Still others may feel that real estate market and feasibility analysis should be the core topics in a principles class. In short, one of the difficulties in teaching an introductory real estate course is that there appear to be too many “principles.” The critical question thus becomes: What framework should be used to teach these principles?

Although the subject of real estate can be studied from many perspectives, we have adopted the value perspective as our unifying theme. Why? Because 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. Thus, whether a person enters the business of real estate in a direct way (e.g., development and ownership), becomes involved in a real estate service business (e.g., brokerage, property management, consulting, appraisal), or simply owns a home, he or she must continually make investment valuation decisions or advise others on their decisions. The key to making sound investment decisions is to understand how property values are created, maintained, increased, or destroyed.

Once value is established as the central theme, all other concepts and principles of real estate analysis can be built around it. Legal considerations, financing requirements and alternatives, income and property tax considerations, and local market conditions all are important primarily in the context of how they affect the value of the property. For example, in Part 2 students will study growth management and land use regulations. Although these concepts have great interest from a political and public policy perspective, they are important from a real estate view primarily because of their potential effects on property rents and values. Similarly, the “imperfections” in real estate markets discussed in Part 3—such as the lack of adequate data, the large dollar value of properties, and the immobility of land and structures—are of interest primarily because of their effects on market values. Our objective is to provide the reader with a framework and a set of valuation and decision-making tools that can be used in a variety of situations.

The Fifth Edition

Since the publication of Real Estate Principles: A Value Approach, Fourth Edition, continued changes have come upon the world of real estate. This is true in transactions and brokerage with continued advancement of electronic marketing and the arrival of completely new forms and procedures for most real estate transactions, it is true in valuation with the expansion of automated valuation systems, a new version of the Uniform Residential Appraisal Report, and of new residential and commercial property data sources, and it is true in development and construction with the shift to “green” building. But it is still more true in real estate finance and capital sources where the dramatic advancement of internet lending and the implementation of the “Dodd-Frank” Act have displaced traditional practices, procedures and players, in mortgage finance. For investment property, the new players tend to be neither debt nor equity, but integrated entities who create a “capital structure,” and even the ownership structure, for the property. In addition, there continues to be change with profound and far-reaching implications in a world where we now understand that both residential and commercial property values can go down as well as up. This realization colors the demand for home ownership as well as every aspect of real estate investment, finance, and transactions for the foreseeable future.
