Sample text

The components of building are themselves simple; we have been doing it for thousands upon thousands of years. Bring a Roman surveyor or craftsman back from the past and put him on a modern construction site and, after a little acclimatization, he would soon be very much at home. We have some sophisticated tools now that make our lives easier but, fundamentally, things have not changed that much. The developer was also slightly wrong. Although fundamentally simple, the process of modeling is complex.

Hopefully, the appraisal will be the best, most reasoned assessment of the outcome, but it is almost inevitable that at least some of the assumptions within it will prove to be inaccurate. If, however, some of the key variables—the ones that have the most impact on value or profitability—vary (usually the rental income stream, the capitalization yield, sale prices, construction costs, and project duration), then the impact on the bottom line can be very significant. Even a fairly small variation to some of these items can be fatal to the project.

Although I no longer work for the company, I still use—and like—the software, and I know it rather well! In addition, I continue to work with clients in the US, primarily through CREModels, a skills out-sourcing company based in St. Petersburg, Florida. This book is, however, an independent effort. Argus has had no input into its writing, giving me total independence in the content and the criticism—where necessary—of the software. It is based on training material that I have prepared over the last four to five years but, I believe, goes into much more depth than you ever get at a training course.
