Understanding and being able to create financial models not only improve an individual’s ability to deliver robust financial analysis but also set them apart in a career in real estate, especially those involving property investment, development, capital markets and research.

By being able to construct cash flows in Excel, real estate professionals can show that they are equipped to perform well in any financial environment – from banks to insurance to private equity and investment funds. Surveyors who can model will easily demonstrate their property, finance and technological knowledge, making their analysis and investment recommendations credible and robust.  

The Certificate in Real Estate Financial Modelling is designed to provide the first steps in creating pro-forma real estate financial statements. The course will introduce delegates to the basics of real estate finance and financial modelling, providing a step-by-step guide to investment analysis using Excel.
