RICS market surveys take 2–3 minutes to complete, on a regular basis.

We ask members to provide simple answers ('up', 'down' or 'the same') to some straightforward questions about market demand, prices and so on, compared to a previous month or quarter.

Crucially, we rely on individual member input. Your feel for the market – based on local-level knowledge, rather than official views of company research departments – is invaluable.

All participants receive full accreditation in these regular reports. The members' comments we publish are often picked up by the broadsheet press.

Completing each survey and reading the report can also count as 30 minutes of informal CPD; regular participation can add up to 6 hours of Informal CPD each calendar year. Remember to record the activity online.
