Course overview
Financial feasibility analysis will tell you whether your proposed development will be a financial success or a failure. It will highlight potential problems or risk you may face along the way enabling you to undertake sensitivity analysis to better understand the risks. This systematic method of taking into account all projected costs and income provides clear direction to ensure a successful financial outcome for a project.
Run as a practical workshop, Financial Feasibility provides participants with a good understanding of how to conduct a financial feasibility study. The course will take attendees through the practical application of financial feasibility to a selected site using ARGUS EstateMaster software. Attendees will input information on dwelling sizes and sales rates as well as construction costs. Students will also receive instruction from relevant experts as to how this information can be derived.
