PwC Investor Survey Data

The Valcre Valuation Workbook (Excel) includes exciting updates to new and existing functionality  including new Expense Growth Rate and Market Rent Growth Rate tables and chart support, updates to the National Investor Survey, and support for PwC Market Data to pull into DCF sheets!

Expense Growth Rate table and Market Rent Growth Rate table and chart support: Check out our new Expense Growth Rate and Market Rent Growth Rate table on the RATES sheet! Data will populate after importing Market data in the OAR sheet. And don’t miss additional chart support! To display this chart, make a selection from the “Show Charts” dropdown on the OAR sheet.

Expense Growth Rate and Market Rent Growth Rate Conclusion tables: Data from PwC will populate automatically in Conclusion tables, or enter data from RERC, Realty Rates or Market Participant Interviews.

National Investor Survey: Now, choose from a variable number of quarters in the "Year/Quarter" dropdown! The "Current Quarter" label will update to "Retrospective Quarter" accordingly! In additional import data from multiple markets with different time periods and populate the chart below the National Investor Survey table with the shortest time period of imported market data! 

PwC data capture in DCF sheets: Pull in Market Rent Growth Rate data in the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) table on the DCF sheet! And, pull in PwC data in the “Market Rent” and “Expenses'' dropdowns of the ASSMPTNS sheet!  

All the new PwC exhibits can be incorporated into your reports by linking to the exhibit names from your Report Template (Word file).  If you find the need to regularly incorporate these new elements, reach out to our Support team and we can update your Report Templates so they are included by default.
