The systematic acquisition of real estate properties over time is unquestionably
one of the surest means of accumulating wealth. While building a
respectable real estate portfolio is a process that can take months, or even
years, the patient and diligent investor enjoys a high probability of earning

I have had many sources of inspiration for this work. During my
research, I found that the subject attracted considerable interest in
scattered corners of the world. In spite of a voluminous literature in the
field, observers in diverse locations and positions shared a view, perhaps
for different reasons, that some crucial links and relationships had so far
been bypassed. My ambition was to build on the knowledge and insights
accumulated in economics while trying to explore some new avenues of
Many investors are perfectly satisfied with the more traditional investing
opportunities: They build solid portfolios containing individual
stocks and bonds, mutual and exchange-traded funds, and so forth, and are

The above three
approaches are used for the valuation of land as a site for the construction of a
particular building at the current time. Which approach is more applicable is
problem-specific. For example, in a situation where the purchase of real estate

pension funds) and are governed by varied state laws, ERISA standards and its treatment
of economically targeted investments (ETIs) are cited as a transferable legal framework. The
Department of Labor issued an interpretative bulletin (1994) stating that private pension
funds may pursue ETIs as long as they meet standard prudent investment guidelines and seek
appropriate risk/return characteristics (U.S.
Real estate investment is about creating and adding value through the effective
management of property assets. Real estate is fundamentally no different from other mainstream
investments: the analysis of property investments can be easily integrated into the capital market
framework. Capital asset pricing theory evolved into the capital asset pricing model (CAPM).
