Real Estate is viewed from four perspectives: the business perspective, the legal perspective, the economic perspective and the financial perspective. These perspectives are the predominant points of view that real estate professionals take when analyzing and implementing decisions. Real Estate is built on several basic disciplines such as management, law, economics, and finance. Thus a multi-perspective approach to the study of real estate is consistent with the way that professionals in various fields learn and apply knowledge.
