In partnership with
In this 2-day course we will provide a more in-depth overview of the property industry, what property is, what drives it, what people and clients do in it, how they design, build, lease-up, value and invest in real estate and why they invest in certain types. It will explain lease events and lease structures, (un)desirable property features by sector, how it all fits together and how things work.
This course enables you to understand what your colleagues and clients do, what they want and the leasing and investment jargon they use. We provide context on how standard commercial property compares to stocks, bonds and alternative real estate as an investment. Real-life case studies on both days tie everything back together.
Who should attend this course:
This course is aimed at professionals without a formal real estate or surveying qualification who are currently working for banks, property consultancies, planning, architecture and tech companies, data or software providers, law firms and construction companies. The idea is to fill in the knowledge gaps of those seeking to understand the real estate jargon so they can better communicate and influence clients and colleagues.
