National Investor Survey Table

You must import your PwC reports to use this table and subsequent chart. 

Step 1: Access PwC using the link on the table and export your relevant reports. Be sure they are reflecting the same number of periods. 


Pro tip: You will need a separate file from PwC for each market you are reporting on.


Step 2: Select the Number of PwC Markets you are importing.

  • If you don’t have or wish to use the data for these columns

Step 4: Select if you wish to show charts based on the number of periods you imported.

The number of selected periods must match those reflected in the PwC reports imported. 

  • EX: You can’t select the Ten Years option if you import five years of data.


Step 5: Import the report for each market by selecting Import next to the table.

  • Note: The Market Name will be imported directly from your PwC report and can be edited or adjusted to reflect your preferred order of Market Names.

Step 6: Manually enter the ranges for each market you imported.


National Investor Survey Chart

Pro tip:  This PwC import and how you set up the National Investor Survey will be reflected in the Rates sheet's IRR and Residual Cap Rate tables. 


Market Participant Interviews table

This is an optional table to utilize if required for your report.

If using:

Step 1: Select the Number of Participants you interviewed, up to 5 participants. This will adjust the table accordingly, ensuring you do not have blank rows.

Step 3: When ready to incorporate this table into your report. Use the Insert File/Link feature in the Report with the table naming convention listed beneath the table. 


If not using:

Step 1: Select No for Utilization. This will close up the table.
