This report explores the body of knowledge and skills required for effective and desirable real estate practice.
The research will assist real estate educators and practitioners to align educational outcomes with workplace needs and industry requirements.
Data was collected using a modified Delphi technique with a panel of real estate experts practicing in the UK to deliver an anonymous consensus–building process. Two rounds of questionnaire (one unstructured and one structured) were sent to the panel to first identify and later rate a set of practice-based activities.
This study concludes that more practice based knowledge should be identified and used for professional accreditation, real estate education and practitioner development. The research framework structures the compiled body of knowledge thus connecting the parts that constitute the real estate profession and demonstrate the true worth of real estate practice.
