This is not a “get-rich-quick” class or “guru” workshop. This is a condensed version of a college-level real estate investment finance course for investors (or aspiring investors) and professionals looking for the tools to understand and evaluate real estate investments and income-producing properties. This will be a very hands-on course, hosted in a computer lab, allowing you to work in Excel and learn concepts you can take home and put into practice.

Topics include:

  • Advantages and disadvantages of investing in real estate
  • Methods for financing real estate and loan underwriting standards (debt coverage ratio, loan constant, loan-to-value, etc.)
  • Understanding and preparing loan amortization schedules
  • Standards for categorizing revenue, expenses, and net operating income
  • Standards for calculating before-tax cash flow
  • Understanding positive and negative leverage
  • Calculating common performance metrics like cap rates and cash-on-cash return
  • Understanding the impacts of inflation, interest, and appreciation on the value of property over time
  • Calculating net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR)
