NAIOP Corporate Basic Real Estate Finance Online Course

Basic Real Estate Finance is designed to provide entry level professionals with the skills necessary to analyze the financial feasibility of real estate investment opportunities. It provides a step-by-step approach for completing a financial feasibility analysis. Students will become more familiar with real estate market participants, valuation fundamentals, determinates of real estate returns, the impact of leverage on real estate investments, and interactions between the real estate space market and the capital market. This course is ideal for developers, asset managers and owners who have very little financial analysis experience. It will therefore emphasize fundamentals and will not delve into more complex issues that are covered in NAIOP's Advanced Real Estate Finance course
