Problems of property performance measurement

Journal of Valuation

ISSN: 0263-7480

Article publication date: 1 March 1990


Considers the important ways in which property is different from other investments and the problems associated with measurement of investment performance in the property market. Outlines the features of the difference of property investment as providing a medium‐level ′secure′ income, a different performance cycle, and a lower level of risk. Discusses the issues creating concern over the pricing of property and the ability to measure its performance, and looks at recent developments in the market. Suggests that the processes of evaluation and performance measurement are providing data on a more comparable basis as the property market itself becomes more efficient.
