Course description

Real Estate Capital Markets and Finance

In recent decades, commercial real estate as an asset class had accessed the public markets for capital through the securitization, utterly transforming this asset class. These developments have had profound effects on the real estate markets, including how they have led to greater flexibility and transparency in those markets, and how they have affected the valuations and pricing efficiency of markets for real estate assets.

Real estate financial markets are rapidly changing, with new instruments and ideas introduced every day. Therefore, the course will prepare participants to undertake any new financial instrument that might be introduced to the market, and be able to understand and utilize the innovations that have been introduced and are still being developed. The methods in which households and investors finance the acquisition of real estate has changed dramatically. The types of loans available to borrowers have gone from a limited choice, to a much wider variety of mortgage structures offering many choices. Along with this increase in choice came an increase in both complexity and specialization in mortgage markets, changing the degree to which real estate markets, the financial markets and the economy as a whole are related.

The course will provide an overview to participants in financial structures and market factors that influence the success or failure of a business. At the conclusion of the course, students will have enhanced insight and skills to better understand the possible options available, including having the opportunity to register for additional in-depth course on a variety of related topics.
