    A classic textbook that has guided generations of students through the intricacies of property valuation, The Income Approach to Property Valuation remains a keen favourite amongst students and teachers alike. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to meet the increasingly international perspectives of modern Real Estate students. The links between theory and practice are clearly demonstrated throughout, with a range of new international case studies and practice-based examples. The Income Approach to Property Valuation teaches readers:

    • how to analyse market rents and sales prices to derive market evidence to support an opinion of market value;
    • the investment method of valuation and how it is applied in practice;
    • how specific legal factors can impact on market value when they interfere with market forces;
    • what the market and the profession may consider to be the 'right' methodology in today's market place; and
    • how to use spreadsheets in valuation.

    This extensively revised new edition is perfect both for students on Real Estate courses worldwide and for professional candidates working towards their final assessment of professional competence (APC) for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, needing to demonstrate a valuation competence at levels 2 and 3.

    Praise for the previous edition:

    'If you know the feeling of a long lost friend returning after a period of not being close, then you will know the feeling that I felt when I read the new edition of The Income Approach to Property Valuation. I grew up with this text. It was the first text that I read; it was the text that helped to establish my fascination and my own understanding of property valuation and pricing. [...] this is still the best introductory text on the market. Baum is the author of a number of other texts that are more advanced or more specialised (all of which are excellent) but if you are a student studying property valuation for the first time, ignore the plethora of other textbooks that purport to be good introductions to the topic. Just buy this book, you will not regret it.' - Nick French, Oxford Brookes University, Journal of Property Investment & Finance

    'The sixth edition builds upon its solid foundations as a principle and well-established property valuation textbook for both students and practitioners alike. It covers all aspects of investment valuation and makes good use of worked examples to aid the understanding of this complex subject. This edition is further improved with a more detailed explanation (together with examples) of the Profits Method which has been compiled by a leisure sector specialist and thus gives the book a more rounded feel.' - Keith Petrie, MRICS, Property Valuation Teaching Consultant, University of Aberdeen
