This course is an introductory approach to analyzing residential real estate investments. This workshop has
been structured for individuals who have a desire to understand the basic concepts. It is also oriented to
licensees who have experience with investment properties, but want a greater understanding of how
investments are analyzed. Class members will learn to view a real estate investment from four different
perspectives: the Buyer, the Seller, the Lender and the Internal Revenue Service.

This workshop is a "live presentation" of material with student participation.  A workbook,
titled, “Real Estate Investment Analysis, Easy as 1-2-?” is given to the participants. It provides
a step-by-step procedure with a logical progression. Many practice problems are provided, with answers
adjacent to the practice problem. This course is a class for people who don’t like math. A hand calculator is
an essential requirement for the workshop.

Section I of the course pertains to understanding the components of an investment property and their
relationships. Terminology and simple math formulas are introduced through the use of a grid. Participants
use the appropriate math formulas and practice analyzing properties

Section II of the course makes it possible for students to create a 5 year projection on an investment
property, making specific assumptions and projections in relation to income, vacancy and expenses. They
learn about the process of amortization and how it affects an investment. And, they learn about the current
tax implications of an investment. Students also learn how to determine the internal rate of return based
upon the assumptions and projections that have been provided.
