Valuation and sale price

Published March 2019

The MSCI Real Estate Valuation and sale price study has been running for over 20 years. This study is an important measure for the investment valuation community and contributes to the transparency and integrity of the marketplace. Valuations are key to performance measurement and pricing in the property industry.

This report compares data from the 2017 MSCI UK Annual Property Index against the sale prices of UK commercial property. It analyses the performance of the valuation profession in the UK property market by tracking the difference between valuations of real estate against actual sales.

This report addresses two key questions in the UK market:
1. How much do sale prices differ from previous valuations?
2. Are differences random or were sale prices consistently above or below the latest valuation?
