Jump-start your career in commercial real estate. Discover different commercial real estate asset classes and learn to evaluate each one through a series of practical case studies.
- Hey, welcome to this introduction to commercial real estate analysis. I just want to take a quick moment to introduce myself and give you a quick breakdown of the course. Who it's for, and how you should take it in order to get the most out of this course. Hi, my name is Simon Hi and I'm an investor, broker, and real estate consultant based out of Los Angeles, California, and I've worked on deals both large and small, from single unit rentals that were less than 50 thousand in value to deals that were worth over 100 million in completion value.
Throughout my career I've helped analyze, purchase, rehab, stabilized, and ultimately exited from a number of commercial real estate assets across a wide range of asset classes in dozens of markets across the Western US. Now in this course, I'm going to introduce you to the broad commercial real estate asset classes. What are their attributes that each investor should care about and ultimately how should investors evaluate each asset class through specific case studies that are inspired by real world deals that I've worked on previously.
Now included in this course are advanced investment models that I've custom built just for this course to help you better understand the examples and to give you field tested models that you can use to evaluate your own deals in the future. These are the same models that I've used to evaluate deals for my clients. This leads me one caveat for this course. The concepts and techniques covered here assume prior knowledge.
You need to understand the concepts like the internal rate of return, net present value, discounted cashflow analysis, the waterfall framework. Now, if any of those sound foreign to you, please check out my other, more introductory courses like the Real Estate Analysis Foundations, or the Introduction to the Waterfall Framework. Those are going to help you get up to speed so that you can take advantage of the content covered in this course.
