Abstract

Valuation is very important to the real estate profession. It is a veritable tool for decision making in property transaction and require that opinion of values given for an interest in landed property by practitioners are reliable and consistent. However, the study of valuation by university students appears to have generated bias over the years. The failure rate in valuation compared to other courses seems to be higher. The aim of this paper is to examine the Perception of Estate Management students to the study of valuation. Estate management students of covenant university students from 200 to 500 levels (being the levels offering valuation as a subject) were adopted as population sample for the study. Structured questionnaires were analyzed and the simple descriptive statistics were used for the study. The outcome of the study shows that some of the students are not fully aware of the course- Estate Management but were compelled to study it and as such are not enjoying some of the subjects particularly valuation while some are aware but find valuation particularly difficult and the others are of the opinion that valuation is very interesting. It recommends that more orientation should be given to students about the different discipline and the courses / subjects that make up the study before embarking on such a study at the university
