A financial feasibility analysis can help to identify whether your proposed development will be a financial success or a failure. It will highlight potential problems or risks you may face along the way enabling you to undertake sensitivity analysis to better understand the risks.This systematic method of taking into account all projected costs and income provides clear direction to ensure a successful financial outcome for a project.


The UDIA NSW Advanced Financial Feasibility course is run as a practical workshop. The course will take attendees through the practical application of financial feasibility to a selected site using the ARGUS EstateMaster software. Attendees will receive instruction from three experts as to how the information needed for a feasibility study can be derived. Attendees will source and input information into the ARGUS EstateMaster software on dwelling sizes, sales rates and construction costs.


The advanced course is designed for those with intermediate industry experience, with technical backgrounds who have some familiarity with the ARGUS EstateMaster software, or who have completed the UDIA NSW Introduction to Financial Feasibility course which provides an introduction to the software.
