Real Estate

Courses In This Course

Real estate can be a very attractive proposition for both individual and institutional investors, offering the potential for high long-term, inflation-protected returns. While physical property has been a major and successful wealth-generating asset for private individuals for many centuries, real estate as a broader investable asset class has also been very rewarding for investors (both individual and institutional).

 

Real estate includes not just residential homes, but also pure land and a variety of income-generating properties, such as offices, shops, warehouses, and apartments. It is perhaps the easiest asset class to understand as it is visible, physical, and tangible, although its valuation and pricing can be subjective and complex. This courses explores these and other characteristics of the real estate asset class.

  •    REAL ESTATE - VALUATION

    Overview

    Real estate is generally considered to be an “alternative asset," complementary in a portfolio context given its low correlation with the stock, bond and money markets. Fund managers need to determine how much real estate to add to a portfolio and at what price. Here we learn about how investors can value real estate.
