What our customers think

"Brent commissioned SDS to conduct a comparative market exercise using our Commercial Assumptions, we are now in receipt of our Assumptions Appraisal Report. Throughout the commission, SDS were very thorough and supportive, and have provided us with a refined tool that has improved our financial modelling of projects. The team at Brent are confident our appraisals are reflective of the current market and contains the right commercial edge."


Jan Gill

Interim Head of Development

"I can confirm that the report was very valuable to SLH in benchmarking our assumptions against our peers. Suggested adjustments were made to our board and we released a new set of Development Assumptions in June 2019. Our revised assumptions provide more confidence that our appraisals are in line with the market allowing us to be more competitive with our development proposals. The SDS Team were supportive, understood our desired outcomes for the report and produced the report draft in a timely fashion meeting our target deadline. We feel the investment into producing this report was worthwhile."

"We have now had 2 assumption appraisal reports carried out by SDS, and they have proved very useful in giving us an idea of what others in the sector are doing in relation to their appraisal assumptions. In order for us to remain competitive we have to ensure we are not getting out of sync with the marketplace, and the appraisal assumption report is a really good tool to assist us with this."

"Having SDS Consultancy do an Assumptions Appraisal Report for us has proven to be the right decision. It has given us the confidence to know that we are being competitive by benchmarking ourselves against our peers. Over the 18 months since its completion, our use of SDS ProVal has become an essential tool for improving our financial projections with our developments."
