Real Estate Investment and Finance is about understanding real estate investments and the financial value they give to a business. To achieve this understanding, you must learn about such financial statistics as net present values and internal rates of return, among others. The concepts behind capitalization, discounting, lifecycle costing, and value are equally vital. This course will provide you with the basic knowledge necessary to evaluate investment opportunities and to maximize the value of your current properties. To do this, you will learn the basics of investment mathematics.
You will need a financial calculator to apply what you learn. Therefore, as you study, the chapters will walk you through many calculations using the HP 10bII.* The last chapter of this coursebook contains a case study, with additional practical exercises, so that you can further apply what you have learned.
Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be able to:
- Understand physical value and market value
- Determine a property’s economic value
- Finance investments and increase value
- Demonstrate a working knowledge of current tax laws, including capital gains and depreciation
*The coursebook is written for the following calculators: HP 10b, HP 10bII, HP 10bII+, HP12c, and HP 19bII. The HP 10bII, HP 10bII+, HP 12c, and HP 19bII calculators can be purchased online, by calling 1.888.999.4747, and in office supply stores. Please note, the HP 10b calculator is no longer being produced by HP, but you can still find it in office supply stores and online.

A request to cancel registration for an educational class must be submitted in writing via email up to seven (7) calendar days before the class starts in order to receive a 100% refund. The textbook must be returned unopened to BOMA Indianapolis in all cases where a student cancels registration.

COMPUTER-BASED TESTING (CBT)
Exams are administered via Computer-Based Testing (CBT) through our testing provider, Pearson VUE. The registration fee provides for one testing session during the six-month eligibility period, which can be scheduled at the students convenience at a Person VUE testing center of their choice. You should receive an email from Pearson VUE within the first few days of class. If you don't, please tell your instructor right away.
EXAM ELIGIBILITY PERIOD
Students have a six-month eligibility period to schedule and take their exam. For Self-Study students, the eligibility period begins on the date of registration; for Classroom students, the eligibility period begins as of the first day of class. If a student does not take the exam within this period, the student must pay an Exam Administration Fee to begin a new six-month eligibility period.
EXAM ADMINISTRATION FEE (INCLUDES EXAM TRANSFER, EXAM NO-SHOW, AND RETEST)
Students who fail an exam, do not cancel a scheduled exam appointment, or require an additional six months to take the exam will incur an Exam Administration Fee allowing for an additional six-month eligibility period. This fee includes testing and administrative fees and is $100.
To ensure sufficient time to prepare, students should be registered ten (10) business days prior to the class start date. A $100 (USD) late fee will be applied to registrations received thereafter. Additional shipping fees apply and BOMA Indianapolis must pass those fees on to students due to late registrations.
