Your assignment is to analyse the primary Threats and Opportunities for value in Real Estate.
Your analysis needs to focus on contrasting two sectors of real estate (you can choose from Education,
Healthcare, Commercial or Residential) and on discussion the impact of two Grand Challenges (you
can choose from Climate Emergency, Changing Demographics, Changing Technology or Changing
Expectations and Requirements). You can choose to focus your work on a single geographical location
(multinational region/country/city) .
In order to complete the assignment, you should:
Conduct a literature review on ‘Value’ and similar (see the reading list for a starting point).
Research on what is considered valuable for the real estate in your 2x selected RE sectors and geography (refer to guest lectures for ideas).
Further research how your 2x Grand Challenges are seen (by credible sources) to affect future
values that relate to the RE sectors you have focussed on.
Structure the essay with a clear introduction that will provide focus and limitations, set out the
sections of the essay with a clear flow, provide crisp, clear conclusions and recommendations for
scholars, practitioners and policy-makers.
