This subject applies the financial skills acquired in Finance I to analyse investments in residential and commercial real estate. A firm understanding of real estate markets is essential to these analyses. The subject will examine the operation of the markets for owner-occupied and rental housing, the operation of markets for commercial space for retail, office and industrial uses and the mortgage market. The lectures develop answers to questions such as: What is the role of uncertainty in determining real estate prices? Do demographic changes explain trends in home ownership? Why do some retail areas succeed and others fail? Where possible, data from Australian and world markets will be used to develop the answers to these questions and to illustrate the concepts presented in the lectures.
