Description:
This course uses case studies to enhance student understanding of investment and financing decisions in the commercial real estate industry. Building on the material covered from the prerequisite course, FINC-454, this course emphasizes topics particularly relevant to the professional property investor. The course begins by exploring how to value land held for commercial development, how to make investment decisions regarding ground-up development, and the circumstances that lead the public sector to support private real estate development. Next, the course explores the role of financial markets to provide financing through securitization of both commercial and residential mortgages. The course concludes with examinations of the corporate use of real estate, performance attribution, and the allocation and investment decisions made by institutional investors into real estate assets. Class is a mixture of lectures, case discussions, and in-class exercises. There is no final exam.
