  • CI 103 User Decision Analysis for CIRE

    Aug 7 - 10, (CT)
    CI 103: User Decision Analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate Linking a company's enterprise-level goals with their real estate strategy is key to offering the right space solution. Whether an investor, operator, or a broker, it's important to approach real estate problems from the perspective of the user/occupant. In CI 103, you'll learn such advanced skills as how to perform a comparative lease analysis between competing assets, analyze a sale-leaseback to help a client generate capital from their owned real estate, and advise a client on a lease vs. purchase decision to facilitate an expansion. Incorporating the CCIM Decision-Making Model and the CCIM Communications/Negotiations Model, CI 103 explores new concepts regarding user discount rate selection, such as using multiple rates for some occupancy decisions based on perception of risk related to the various occupancy cash flows. After completing this course, you will be able to: apply key occupancy decision-making skills such as comparative lease analysis, lease vs. purchase analysis, lease buyout analysis, and sale-leaseback analysis to optimize user space decisions; determine how the financial reporting requirements for real estate influence user decisions; and integrate negotiation skills with financial analysis skills to maximize user outcomes.

  • CI 104 Investment Analysis for CIRE

    Dec 4 - 7, (CT)
    CI 104 encompasses the entire life cycle of an investment, from refinancing to capital improvements to disposition. Within each case study, you will encounter a key investor decision: Should a non-taxable investor acquire an investment with or without debt financing? What if the investor is taxable? During the holding period of an investment, should an investor make a discretionary capital expenditure or not? How does an investor evaluate disposition alternatives? CI 104 uses advanced analyses to build on the core CCIM concepts. Sensitivity analysis allows you to pinpoint exactly how slight changes in market fundamentals affect investment goals. Risk analysis uses past performance to anticipate how an investment is exposed to external and internal threats. Learn how to mitigate those threats through smart planning and negotiations. After completing this course, you will be able to: apply key investor decision-making analyses to optimize investment returns; more effectively forecast investment performance by quantifying real estate risk; and leverage CCIM analytical tools to improve decision making.
