Overview and Market Analysis - Defining the Problem
In this module we will discuss the first step in the Feasibility Study Process: Defining the Problem. We will cover property analysis, site analysis checklist, and location analysis.
In this module we will discuss the second step in the Feasibility Study Process: Market Analysis. We will address three basic questions: 1) Will there be users to rent or buy the proposed project; 2) How quickly, and at what rent or price, will the proposed project be absorbed into the market; and 3) How might the project be planned or marketed to make it more competitive in its market.

Highest and Best Use and Valuation
In this module, we will discuss the third step in the Feasibility Study Process: Highest and Best Use. This step determines the projected site’s highest and best use. The highest and best use case study provides an economic basis for the chosen use by addressing the four factors of value: utility, desire, scarcity, and effective purchasing power. Groups will also present results from the assigned case study.
This module will walk students through the due diligence process. Students will discuss the appraisal report, environmental issues, and insurance review, as well as surveying the property.
