Real Estate Investing Strategies (Online)
Commercial property sales in the United States totaled a record US$809 billion in 2021 according to data organization Real Capital Analytics, nearly doubling that of 2020 and exceeding the previous record of about US$600 billion in 2019. Given this trend, real estate investing is seeing abundant opportunities across emerging and established sectors. However, with volatility in markets and lending rates, maximizing returns on real estate investments requires a deep understanding of the nuances, variables, and risks that drive ever-fluctuating property markets. A challenge for most traditional investors is that the real estate market is less liquid and transparent than stocks, and it’s often difficult to get the necessary information all in one place to make fully informed investment decisions.

You will gain industry-leading skills in creating financial models, analyzing cash flows, determining values, and measuring returns of real estate investments.
