It says that property values rise in real terms by 8% but is property not also subject to inflation at 2.5% aswell as this?November 30, 2015 at 7:28 am #286300
By saying that property values rise by 8% it is meaning that the inflation applying to property is 8% (and is higher than the general inflation rate of 2.5%).
Everything else will inflate at 2.5%, but property is expected to inflate at a higher rate of 8%.November 30, 2015 at 11:08 pm #286577
In general doesn’t “in real terms” mean “without the effect of inflation” ?December 1, 2015 at 6:46 am #286616
Yes it does. But although the general rate of inflation is 2.5% it does not mean everything inflates at the same rate. In this question you are told that property inflates at 8% (not 2.5%).December 1, 2015 at 11:36 pm #286846

Hello sir, hope you r well.
Regarding this question when calculating the MIRR,the pv of the return phase in the year 20X9 is 9731 in the bpp revision kit. I failed to understand hw this figure is arrived at. Kindly elaborate.
ThanksMay 23, 2016 at 6:34 am #316521
It is a mistake – they should have used 8719.61 (from the earlier workings).
What happened is that the examiners own answer to the question had a mistake in it (to do with the terminal value of the hotel). So BPP corrected his answer in the Revision Kit, but managed to then make the mistake of putting 9731 instead of 8720 🙂May 24, 2016 at 9:39 pm #316910sogan0Member

Return Phase : how do we arrive to the Nominal cashflows 20.5 = 54.63May 25, 2016 at 6:53 am #316940
The real cash flow (i.e. without inflation) in 20X5 is 52.
The nominal (actual) cash flow is the real flow inflated at 2.5% for 2 years.
52 x 1.025^2 = 54.63
