Richard and his friend Sean are exploring the idea of developing a student residence complex near University College Dublin (UCD). South County seems to present attractive market and demographic conditions for investment in student housing in 2018. But before committing a large share of his personal wealth to the project Richard needs to conduct a more careful analysis of its potential risks and returns.
By putting yourselves into the shoes of a budding real estate entrepreneur, you are required to evaluate the merits and pitfalls of various approaches to the technical feasibility and financial analysis of real estate development projects.
Richard and Sean had been involved in a similar project in Galway in the late 90’s when they had previously worked together – they knew how much it would cost and how long it would take to build. The only questions remaining was where they would build and was a student residence really the best idea for their money.
The attached case has been developed by Keogh Consulting to be used as a basis for discussion of property development, project appraisal and delivery in inhouse CPD modules.
