Excel Financial Modeling for Real Estate Analysis

The Center for Real Estate Entrepreneurship has partnered with REFM, the premier financial modeling solutions provider for Excel-based financial spreadsheet models and for financial modeling training and consulting for real estate transactions.

In this workshop, you will:

  • You will learn the top 25+ Excel functions, tools and techniques that are most used in real estate analysis. Each topic and accompanying technique is isolated and taught with its own example, after which you will perform a topic-specific exercise.
  • You will learn the collection of technical skills for the pro-forma (projection) modeling for the acquisition and individual unit renovations (with continued operation) of a rental apartment building.
  • You will learn about how to model equity joint venture partnerships for individual property transactions, both developments and acquisitions. "Dollars in" (capital contributions) and "dollars out" (partitioned levered cash flows) to all equity players will be studied in detail.
  • Be prepared for job interview case study questions

Completion of this workshop allows participants to take the REFM Certification Exam in Excel for Real Estate.
