Abstract: Of late the Press seems to be taking on the role of 'Prophet of Doom' to developers and investors. 'The Property Market is on the downturn.''Prices expected to fall further.''Oversupply.' We are continuously being reminded by the newspaper. Many developers/investors must have hated the position they are in now. Holding on to unsold/unleased properties is a nightmare especially at this moment with banks tightening or recalling their loans. In the midst of the current depression, a question that surfaces in many a developer/investor's mind could be 'Could they have averted the pit they are in now?' or 'What can they do in the future to prevent a repetition of their plight?' As the real estate market gets more and more competitive and complicated and the world economy more volatile, developers and investors should no longer rely on their gut feeling or hearsay in making investment decisions. They will now have to do their homework thoroughly in order to face all the risks that are associated with real estate investment. Risk is particularly omnipresent in real estate investment because of the heavy capital committment and the long time frame of the investment. Although risks cannot be totally eliminated, they can be minimised by the use of more sophisticated tools of analysis in Feasibility Study. Very briefly, this dissertation discusses the weaknesses of the conventional methods of investment analysis and show how more sophisticated analyses could be used in place of them. A case study has also been incorporated to give readers an idea of the usefulness of these sophisticated methods of analysis.
