REP-602 Real Estate Finance Fundamentals

3 Credits

The course establishes a conceptual foundation for understanding real estate finance. It examines the interplay between markets, demographics and spatial patterns relating to migration, transportation, land use regulation, employment and construction costs, with special attention paid to the environmental factors that influence both social equity and asset valuation. The course focuses particularly on housing. Although housing is a universal necessity, millions of households cannot afford what market-rate development produces. Affordable housing development therefore provides a lens for the analytical skills developed in this course.
