Description: This course provides an introduction to the concepts and techniques used to analyze and commercial real estate assets and the instruments commonly used to finance these assets. The topics covered include financial analysis of income-generating real property, analysis of mortgage instruments, commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS), and real estate investment trusts (REITs). This course is designed for students who are interested in commercial real estate; topics pertaining to single-family residential real estate will be covered only in passing. The course will offer all students an opportunity to develop their business presentation skills through case discussions and a final project presentation. The final project involves the detailed analysis of a CMBS deal, including separate, linked analyses of the mortgage collateral pool, the mortgages, and the note structure. The final project will require the use of all of the tools developed in the course.
