Editors note
Welcome to another issue of the Journal of Property Investment & Finance. In this issue,
we concentrate upon the role of valuation and pricing and the impact of valuations on
market practice. The papers in this issue look at valuations for taxation and accountancy as
well as the role of valuation models. This is extended in the next issue with an issue of
Practice Briefings looking at the role of pricing in the current market.
In this issue, our lead Practice Briefing also heralds a forthcoming Special Issue on the
interface between technology and property. This issue, entitled PropTech and
entrepreneurship innovation in real estate, is seeking contributions. See the call for papers
at: (www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/call_for_papers.htm?id=8147).
Back at the turn of the millennium, one of our Editorial Board members, Stephen Roulac,
made a keynote address at the RICS Cutting Edge Conference on topic: The industrial
revolution remembers. This is represented here as it is a wonderful example of how a
property expert was able to synthesise all available information about real estate and
technology at the turn of the century and proffer an insightful glimpse into the future and
suggest how the real estate markets would change. Nearly 20 years later and much of what
Stephenpredicted has come to pass. Real Estateand technology are now intrinsicallylinked. It
is uncanny reading Stephens paper[1] on how so much as come to fruition as he suggested.
Indeed, this shows how much insight Stephen, and many others on our Editorial Board,
have about the property markets. There is a wealth of expertise and knowledge in the Real
Estate community that this journal tries to impart to the next generation.
