So one of the things to which the developers are most sensitive is the feature level of rental. A small amount of the balance in prediction can have a great effect on the success or failure of a project. This is a guide to the viability of a development scheme, it is important that feature levels of income generated from the property must be highly granted.In doing this, decision that affects the feature has to be taken into consideration. But before this can be done, it is necessary to make allowance for conditions that would show ahead. Since current rental on investment mainly aims at meeting the feature needs of the owner.Residential property in its nature is more or less dynamic thus a study of past trends of the property in the market would serve as useful guidelines to the whole state be it, investors. This enables the public as well as a private developer to know how their scheme fits into the future development of the sub-growing urban area as a whole.The study of trends of property values most especially residential property is of great importance to the estate management profession.
