Real Estate Finance Fundamentals
Thursday, June 24, 2021 9:00 AM - Thursday, July 1, 2021 1:00 PM (EDT)
This is a two-part course that will be held on June 24, 2021, and July 1, 2021 from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. This 2-day course will focus on debt and equity financing of income-producing real property. The course will look at both the private debt and equity markets for real estate finance and the commercial mortgage-backed securities market for debt financing. Recent innovations, such as crowdfunding and EB-5 financing, will also be discussed.
The course will utilize lectures, case study discussions, videos, readings, practice exercises, simulation of negotiations and an end of course guest speaker. The course considers real estate finance from the perspective of the users of capital (developers and property owners) and the sources of capital (lenders and equity investors).
The primary student outcomes are the ability to discuss and present a professional financing request for debt and equity, understand risks and how to structure the financing of commercial real estate, and appreciate the diverse ways financing can be used to influence community and neighborhood improvement.
