Providing the richest educational experience. Looking back, I am so pleased with my decision as the 5th Edition Linneman-Kirsch textbook is not only topical but good at making simple, what can easily become complex. The on-line support materials, Excel sheets and exam questions are great as well. The course in turn has become more rigorous but the students are better positioned to succeed.

Thanks for visiting! Do you learn best by reading? You can read more about the author, Dr. He also publishes a well-known quarterly newsletter on commercial real estate. Real Estate Finance and Investments came to my attention when I was researching real estate private equity.
I wanted to cover all my bases, so I decided to read one of the most common and highly regarded real estate references. I approached it with one simple question: Is it a useful guide for answering case study questions in interviews and preparing for the job? No chapter is long enough to give extremely detailed information on the topic, but each one provides a good explanation of the fundamentals e.
So this book is probably the fastest way to get up to speed on the industry as a whole, and to understand the range of asset classes that relate to real estate. The author also does an excellent job explaining the fundamentals of real estate investing with several diagrams that show different scenarios.
This same theme is present throughout the remainder of the book: numbers are merely a tool you use when making decisions. A closely related theme is that numbers and financial models can only tell you so much. My favorite chapters were the ones on Cap Rates and Financial Modeling, since he busts a few common myths there:. The chapter on Financial Modeling is great because he gives an example of a pro-forma model for an apartment complex, and then explains how and why different line items would change in different markets decline, recovery, stable.
Most other training on financial modeling skips the meaning behind the numbers, which is what Linneman excels at here. It does give you the required background information, and there are a few useful exercises at the end. But these examples are not that close to what real estate firms ask candidates to complete in interviews.
For example, you could combine the chapter on the real estate pro-forma with the one on exit strategies and the one on calculating IRR, and get enough to complete a simple exercise. Throughout the book, Linneman has a tendency to go off on tangents and show extreme biases on a few issues.
For example, at one point he writes the following to explain the distinction between Capital Expenditures CapEx and Depreciation:. Depreciation is not a scientific exercise, but rather the result of a highly politicized tax collection process.
A few paragraphs later, he goes into the relationship between Depreciation and getting members of Congress re-elected. This tangent stood out as particularly strange, but there are other, similar oddities throughout. Similar to Damodaran , Linneman is also at odds with mainstream thinking on a few points. To be fair, the book does include coverage of markets outside the U. Properties rarely, if ever, trade; information is scarce, distorted, and self-serving; many properties are overtly manipulated by often corrupt governments; there are only a limited number of capital sources; and, the rules of the game frequently change, often in mid-play.
The biggest weakness of these courses — no names mentioned — is that they tend to focus too much on formulas and calculations and not enough on the why behind the numbers. The main advantage of Real Estate Finance and Investments is that covers a much broader set of topics than we do. Linneman also takes the time to cover topics, such as the time value of money and IRR, that we skip because of coverage in other courses on the site.
But as with learning any industry , reading alone is not enough. This book works best when you put it into practice with real, Excel-based case studies — however you find them. You might prefer watching, listening, or reading for learning new concepts, but nothing beats doing.
In his spare time, he enjoys memorizing obscure Excel functions, editing resumes, obsessing over TV shows, traveling like a drug dealer, and defeating Sauron.

I am interested in reading a book that will walk me through a case study that will serve as a detailed framework by which I should evaluate a 30 unit apartment complex. My question to you is, are there any books that will serve this purpose; a book that can walk me through my own case study?
Thank you in advance for your time in responding to this comment. I enjoyed your post. We cover similar case studies on the site… do a search. Brian, This is great. Would you recommend any books for other industries as well? It is a great course. They were either too general or got into too many unnecessary details on accounting minutiae rather than explaining how to use the concepts in real life.
Hi Brain Liked it, thank you for the efforts. In spite of shortcomings,this book appears to worth of giving a look at. I can bear him out when he talks about non US market , like here in Delhi and NCR region for a developer some kind political collusion is kind of required to acquire the land, availability of capital is not an issue any more even for a small developer. We purposely leave out dates from articles because most of the content here is not time-dependent.
When it is time-dependent or somewhat more time-dependent, we give at least a year or approximate date, as we did here. So one gets each and every thing of these case studies or just few of them only? Finish them! Also, I am not allowed to share many of the ones that have been submitted over time. You do get the 3 case studies covered on this site, and in far more detail and taught via step-by-step lessons.

Home Themed issues 9 Disentangling the geography of fi Financial processes of urban re development, for example, are discussed at the cutting edge of a larger process of uneven development, which is rooted in the structure of the capitalist mode of production and fuels controversial debates on the ownership of the city. The current edition aims to attract further attention to the complex of financial matters and the production of the built environment with the intention to locate both more centrally within geography, planning, and economics. Against this background, this introduction spans the idea of the decision-making itself in financial and real estate markets, which can neither be limited to a singular moment nor be separated from the context in which they take place. Disentangling these market interdependencies and illustrating the context dependency of decision-making is a common theme in all of the papers included in this issue. What is obvious, on the one hand, is that decision-making in financial and real estate markets takes place in different space-times MacKenzie , Smith et al. They also refer to different temporal distributions of economic benefits Clark
Recent times have seen an expansion of theoretical and empirical research on real estate using the paradigms and methodologies of finance and economics. Examples of this research include the working and structure of markets, the role of various institutional arrangements, the attention given mortgages and asset securitization, risk management and valuation, and public policy and regulation. The Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics provides a forum for the publication of this research. Coverage includes urban economics, housing, regional science and public policy. Issue 2, February As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID pandemic, we are aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.

Blatant advertising will be removed, but submission and discussion of upcoming real estate trends and developments are encouraged! Any suggestions on real estate finance books? However, my understanding is that Linneman's book, which someone else linked to the amazon page, is the standard. I think I remember reading in the past that where Bruggeman's approach is very academic, Linneman's is more approachable I could have those switched though.
