In today’s environment, commercial real estate development only occurs when property markets demand additional space and capital markets are able to provide the needed financing. The opening course in commercial real estate finance targets this intersection of property and capital markets. It highlights the market analysis necessary to support commercial leasing activity, the income and expense analyses flowing from those leases, and the resulting value creation. While addressing equity capital sources, the course focuses more directly on debt capital and understanding loan sources, lenders’ underwriting guidelines, and cash flow analysis. (Equity capital sources and requirements are addressed in detail in the second course in this sequence, Real Estate Finance II.) Finally, participants have an opportunity to complete a commercial development feasibility analysis.
Participants are expected to bring a laptop computer with Microsoft Excel to the course.
