Theory isn’t always enough when understanding a concept, so this course runs through a real estate case study to embed your valuation knowledge.

Across 13 lessons, you’ll discover each of the steps needed to apply a valuation model to the assessment of a 3-bed apartment. You’ll project future revenues, calculate future expenses, assess the mortgage and tax payments, and estimate the selling price, before valuing the overall returns on the investment.

By the end of the course, you’ll master the Excel models to use to navigate the investment query and boost your confidence in the validity of your results.
