RPA/Real Estate Investment & Finance (Virtual Format)

The Real Estate Investment and Finance class is scheduled in eight, three-hour increments on the following days: July 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23 and 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and it will be held online.

Real Estate Investment and Finance is about understanding real estate investments and the financial value they give to a business. To achieve this understanding, you must learn about such financial statistics as net present values and internal rates of return, among others. The concepts behind capitalization, discounting, lifecycle costing, and value are equally vital. This course will provide you with the basic knowledge necessary to evaluate investment opportunities and to maximize the value of your current properties. To do this, you will learn the basics of investment mathematics.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be able to:

  • Understand physical value and market value
  • Determine a property’s economic value
  • Finance investments and increase value
  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of current tax laws, including capital gains and depreciation
