Description:

This course counts toward the following majors: Real Estate, Finance

This course is an introduction to the most fundamental concepts, principles, analytical methods and tools useful for making investment and finance decisions regarding commercial real estate assets. We begin the course by considering investment in fully operational income properties. Later, the course takes a close look at real estate capital structure and operating companies. The course concludes with an examination of commercial real estate financing, with an emphasis on public and private mortgage markets. We will study commercial real estate using the tools and framework of modern corporate finance and investments, while focusing on the institutional features unique to the real estate industry. The course provides the intuitive and analytical underpinnings of property valuation, deal structuring, and debt pricing. As such, it is useful for students with industry experience as well as students without a real estate background who may be interested in learning more about real estate as an asset class or those who are contemplating making future real estate investments, both personally and professionally.
