The International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) recognises three main approaches to valuation: the income, cost and market approach (IVS, 2017).  All approaches to valuation are attempting to estimate Market Value (MV); the price of the property in the market on the date of the valuation. Within these approaches are different methods (Investment, cost, residual, accounts and comparison) according to the property type and the nature of the property interest. In the case of the investment method, the valuer is determining the present value of the future cash flow and this can be done using implicit or explicit models.  As valuation is such an important aspect of the industry, great emphasis is placed on the valuer by both the lenders and the borrowers to ensure that the valuation is correct.  A model that captures the market opinion of price as best as possible is therefore to be preferred. This briefing is looking at the Investment valuation method only and within this method, the preferred technique, in the UK, has been the implicit model.
