The basis for the subject real estate economy is macro-economic price theory for a market economy with a particular focus on the specific limitations of the real estate market. This is the basis for this course in real estate economy. As many real estate properties have different characteristics that distinguish them from other types of goods and services, particular attention is given to the prerequisites necessary for the market to function effectively. In addition, certain moments are included in the course based on business administration, primarily accounting and the analysis of yearly financial accounts. Each teaching moment consists of lectures and assignments, and also of project work in which the course's theoretical moments, as well as knolwedge from previous courses in the education, will be integrated and applied. The course begins with general macroeconomic theory as well as specific demand functions and cost principles and price formation under different conditions. Later in the course, corporate accounting, year end and balance sheet analyses with particular focus on the valuation of real estate and credit in the real estate market as well as different investment methods will be examined. General studies are made, of the real estate market and its principles, as well as real estate property as a financial object, price formation in rental and real estate markets.
