The market analysis depth provided for various property types is unparalleled. What a wonderful reference for the professional that wants to understand what drives the market for several specific property types from housing to retail to industrial to office to parking and more.
I really like how the Miller/Geltner text is written. I especially appreciate the authors' use of sine wave graphs to describe the various cycles that apply to real estate. That's something I have been drawing on the board for years, so it's refreshing to see that in the text, along with their comments that you never really know where you are on that curve. I really felt like the authors had gotten into my head with their analysis.
