Once you use this newly introduced investment analysis solution as a learning tool, you can analyze and plan with confidence any property from around the globe. Yes, the learning tool works in all international currencies. 

WHY IS THIS COURSE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER REAL ESTATE INVESTMENTS ANALYSIS COURSES?

This course allows the student FREE use the very latest automated investment analysis suite of tools. These tools combine the complicated "must have" concepts and techniques into an overall automated investment analysis providing the student a hands-on experience. 

  • All other courses, formal academic, professional or continuing education must first teach you how to construct financial models and tools before you can begin your investment analysis. 
  • These tools, the other courses must teach you first, include mastery of spreadsheet software; discounted cash flow (DCF) construction for each property type based on generally accepted valuation standards, property condition, and stage of occupancy (or stage of sales for subdivision properties); populating DCF individual cells with complicated formulas; understanding and how to apply the time value of money formulas within the DCF models; and how to build separate financial feasibility DCF models for development and remodeling proposed projects, etc.  
  • Also, in these other courses, you must learn and master these tools for each of the 13 property classifications (residential, office, industrial, retail, hospitality, etc.) and the 320 property types within these classifications. In addition, the models have to take into consideration one of the five levels of an existing property's current physical development and occupancy. 
  • This involves over 1,600+ different DCF financial model scenarios.
  • My course lets you bypass all the upfront tool building process and lets you concentrate on a hands-on investment analysis that speeds up the learning process and the results you are seeking. 
  • In this course you will have a 60 day free access to the cloud based Valuexpose software. This software was created from years of collaboration between professional designated appraisers, real estate market participants, and other valuation experts at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars. 
  • This new recently introduced software was designed and created as a solution for market participants to never be fooled by real estate bubbles again. This software is so unique that it has 23 pending patents for professional investment analysis and as a early warning solution to devastating real estate bubble formations and their inevitable bursting.  
  • This software will be used for two purposes. The first is a training guide so you can see all investment analysis concepts and fundamentals as they occur in real world situations. Second, you can practice with the software to analyze your own properties.
  • To use the software, simply answer seven questions about your property type. The software will produce appropriate due diligence questions for you to answer about your specific property type and condition. Use these questions as a checklist for you or any other knowledgable person to answer. The checklist questions are versatile and can be filled out  in “rough estimates” or “highly detailed” answers.
  • Upon completion of answering the questions, the software automatically knows which DCF models to use of the 1600 possible combinations. It populates your answers into the appropriate models and instantly performs all the complex investment analysis “heavy lifting”. Upon completion, Valuexpose produces an easy to read entire investment analysis and gives you the valuation results to the answers you seek. 
  • This software allows even the beginning student to bypass the months, if not years of education and experience needed to competently build complex financial models in order to get the results Valuepose produces. 
  • As Steve Job famously would say at the end of his presentations, “and one more thing….”. Valuexpose also has “one more thing” that is one of the most exciting features of this software.  No matter what your property’s current market value might be after you have finished your investment analysis, Valuexpose has an automatic value sustainability feature that alerts you if this value is sustainable during your expected ownership holding period. 
  • Taking this course gives you a 60 day free access and use to Valuexpose software. After the 60 days, student's of this course will receive discount coupons if you want to use Valuexpose periodically or permanently.  

FOR THE GROUP OF YOU THAT WANT TO IMMEDIATELY BE ABLE TO GET THE INVESTMENT ANALYSIS RESULTS IN ANALYZING YOUR OWN PROPERTY TYPE, YOU SIMPLY NEED TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

  • In your Valuexpose account, mimic how the Case Study No. 1 answers the seven questions in the decision tree to obtain the necessary questions (key considerations and market derived assumptions) that must be answered for your specific property type. 
  • Simply copy these key considerations and assumptions answers exactly as they appear in the case study into your own Valuexpose project and when finished press the “Finish” button (takes 15 minutes).
  • Valuexpose will automatically perform all the complete investment analysis “heavy lifting” displaying on your computer (or any hand held device) the results on a single screen.  
  • That’s it! Now you just need to follow along and copy how the case study makes various changes to the key considerations and market derived assumptions. These change demonstrate all the scenarios that you would encounter in real world situations (takes about 30 minutes to view).
  • This process allows you to bypass the complex concepts and techniques body of knowledge because all this knowledge is built in to the construction and the linking of the applicable investment analysis models. 
  • And one more thing. No matter what you think your property’s current market value might be, Valuexpose will automatically alert you if this value is sustainable or not over a typical ownership holding period. 
  • Conversely, it will also indicate if the property’s current market value is an awesome buying or lending opportunity. 
  • This new investment analysis technique arose out the bubble crash in the mid 2000’s. In our new global economy, it is now easy to be fooled by your property’s current market value no matter how well supported by:
  1. licensed appraisers opinions, 
  2. comparable sales,
  3. 10 back-up offers,
  4. brokers assurances, etc. 
  5. Sound familiar?
  • It is now imperative for buyers and lenders to know in advance, before you buy or lend, if the current asking price or current market value has detached above its current fundamental value. This analysis will indicate if this property’s current market value has  entered a dangerous unsustainable bubble. This patent pending sustainability technique cannot be found in any financial analysis courses. This same sustainable technique also points out if your property’s current market or listing price is below its current fundamental value. This situation would indicate an awesome buying or lending opportunity. 
  • If you follow the same instructions for the other three case studies, you will be able to perform the same sophisticated investment analysis professional appraiser’s, developers, investors and analysts perform on complex property’s. 
  • Oh, and one last thing. You will be able to print out a complete report that indicates all your finished investment graphic results. This report will explain and interpret your results to your partners, lenders, appraisers, tax assessment board, accountants and clients. 



What are the requirements?

  • This course will use Valuexpose cloud based software as a free learning tool that combines the concepts and techniques of investment analysis into a single hands on learning experience
  • Registered students will receive a login and password to their 60 day free personal Valuexpose account
  • No other course material or experience is necessary
  • No real estate education or experience needed
  • No software prerequisite experience needed (Excel, etc.)
  • Will only need a computer and access to the internet
  • A competitive desire to gain an advantage in the market place.

  • Flippers
  • Wholesalers
  • Lending
  • Appraising 

This course and its software learning tool was designed to accommodate any real estate investor that wants a professional investment analysis on any property type and at any stage of the development process. In this course the student will discover how to automatically produce and interpret their particular property's:

  • Current valuation of any property type at any stage of development 
  • Prospective milestone values if the property has currently not reached its highest and best use
  • Financial feasibility for development and remodeling properties
  • Optimal financing 
  • Bubble protection alarms if your property's current market value is unsustainable
  • Property buying and developing opportunities arising from the Bubble protection analysis
  • Detailed automated reports describing and interpreting the data results

Successful real estate investing takes a variety of skills. The most important skill to acquire is investment analysis to set yourself up for success before you purchase the property. 


04:34
  • My FIRST GOAL in this course is to give you a super organized hands-on curriculum so you can immediately jump start applying the benefits of investment analysis to your own properties
  • My SECOND GOAL is to quickly direct you to the correct specific property type of interest to you.
  • My THIRD GOAL is showing you how to practice conducting a credible investment analysis for your selected property type using the Valuexpose learning tool and case studies.
  • My FORTH GOAL is to make sure you understand the concepts and techniques simultaneously as you complete the case study exercises 
  • My FIFTH GOAL is to make sure that by the time you finish this course you will be able to conduct a competent and credible investment analysis on your own property using the learning tools.
  • My SIXTH GOAL is that no matter what the investment analysis results might be, you will completely understand the value sustainability analysis and how you can benefits making your final investment decision. 


05:22

Students only interested in one property type at a certain stage of development can be accommodated in this course. 

This lecture guides you to the applicable sections and lectures depending on the student's interests.

Many students will want to discover investment analysis for all property types and receive the VCS or Valuexpose Certified Specialist designation.

No matter how you participate in the real estate industry, this course will give the must have foundation to dominate the competition. 

03:20

One of the key outcomes to investment analysis is whether or not to proceed with a purchase, development, or remodeling of a specific property. Traditional investment analysis will tell you whether this decisions is a "go" or "no go". 

The Valuexpose learning tool automatically performs this traditional investment analysis indicating a "go" or "no go" outcome. If this outcome is a "go", Valuexpose will alert the analyst if the project's current selling price or development/remodeling expected market value is sustainable or not. 

Unlike traditional investment analysis, this newly introduced patent pending sustainability analysis will alert the analyst if a specific property has entered a dangerous bubble exposing the project to significant unexpected losses.

At the same time, the sustainability analysis also alert the analyst if the current asking price or current market value is an awesome buying or lending opportunity. If the latter case, the analyst will know buying or lending on the property will exceed annual yield expectations and entrepreneurial profit estimates. 

14:43

The student will be able to simultaneously grasp the concept, technique and be able to automatically calculate a property's fundamental/intrinsic value all in a single exercise.  

Sustainability analysis compares a property's market value to its fundamental value indicating where the property's market value is headed during an ownership holding period. 

3 questions

This quiz tests your comprehension regarding the value sustainability model. 

Section 2: SECTION 2 - STABILIZED INCOME PRODUCING PROPERTIES (MODULE 5)
02:27

Student that have different property types in mind to analyze will appreciate this course's versatility. Students completing this lecture and the subsequent case study exercise will be able to perform an investment analysis on any residential or commercial stabilized property type. Stabilized properties are 100% complete, developed to the land's highest and best use, and are currently leased at stabilized occupancy at market rents.  Stabilized occupancy means the property's typical occupancy of the building over a normal seven year ownership holding period. 

In completing this lecture, the student will be able to recognize if any property type is currently considered at stabilized. There will also be an understanding that stabilized properties are 100% complete and currently leased to stabilized occupancy and at market rents. 

The investment analysis result will give the student their property's:

  • Current market value
  • Ending sale price after a seven year holding period base on the market's expectation
  • Competitive all cash annual yield based on the market's expectation 
  • Beginning and Ending annual income and expense statement indicating the property's net operating income
  • Monthly net operating income throughout the seven year holding period 
  • Current Intrinsic or fundamental value
  • Ending fundamental sale price after a seven year holding period 
  • Value sustainability analysis 
3 questions

This quiz is designed to test your ability in being able to distinguish between a stabilized and non-stabilized property.

03:45

This lecture will have a hands-on demonstration of how to navigate the software's decision tree questions which tells the software which financial models to use and which due diligence questions to produce for the stabilized income producing case study property type.

Upon completion of the case study's exercise, the student will have a thorough hands-on understanding of the concepts, techniques and execution of an investment analysis regarding stabilized property types. The skills acquired after this section is completed include:

  • Being able to recognize any stabilized property type
  • Being able to obtain a thorough stabilized property checklist of due diligence questions to be answered before the investment analysis can be performed. 
  • Being able to insert due diligence answers into the Valuexpose learning tool 
  • Being able to interpret the learning tool's investment analysis timeline results
  • Being able to make changes to specific due diligence answers that automatically recalculates the investment analysis 
  • Being able to print all detailed calculated results
  • Being able to interpret the value sustainability analysis 
  • Being able to print out a comprehensive report of the final investment analysis including the value sustainability    analysis 
04:23

Investment analysis can be used in determining a property's current market value, which is based on the market's objectives and risk tolerance, or the property's current investment value, which is based on your own objectives and risk tolerance. 

The student will also discover the concepts behind what determines a property's current market value and what to look out for. 

Lastly, the software learning tool describes how just answering preselected due diligence questions, for your particular property, and pressing a single button gives a complete professional automated investment analysis.  

2 questions

Due diligence questions for Stabilized Properties

13:22

The software learning tool has now produced the case study's list of relevant due diligence questions for our subject property. This lecture discusses how to manually fill out each question and their significance in the investment analysis. 

The student is instructed to simply copy the case study's answers into their software account in order to obtain the investment analysis results in their own Valuexpose account. 

2 questions

How to properly fill out due diligence wizard questions

11:15

At this point, the student should have successfully completed their first investment analysis in their own software account similar to the case study. 

This lecture will interpret the investment analysis results as well as the student participating in how several different scenario changes impact the investment analysis and ultimate decision making. 

The student will be made aware of all the software features that can be practically used for their own property type.  

3 questions

Tests you understanding of the initial investment analysis results

09:26

Once the student has made all the changes and is satisfied with the investment analysis results, financing can be explored with the intent of increasing the property's annual equity yield above its already determined competitive all cash annual property yield

The student will discover how to experiment with several different financing scenarios until the optimal annual equity yield is found before this yield starts to revert back towards the all cash annual property yield.  

 

2 questions

Test your understanding regarding how to use financing

Section 3: SECTION 3 - NON- STABILIZED INCOME PRODUCING PROPERTIES (MODULES 1, 2, 3 & 4)
03:19

Non-stabilized means a property has not achieved its stabilized potential called highest and best use. These type of properties are potential stabilized properties that are not yet developed, need to be remodeled, or have not currently reached their stabilized occupancy and/or have existing below market rents.

In completing this lecture, the student will be able to recognize if any property type is currently considered at non-stabilized. There will also be an understanding that a non-stabilized property's current state of development comes in five different non-stabilized varieties:

  • Raw unentitled vacant land to be immediately developed into a stabilized property once entitlements are obtained (Module 1)
  • Finished entitled vacant lot to be immediately developed into a stabilized property (Module 2)
  • Partially finished property that needs additional construction or remodeling (Module 3)
  • Fully finished property that has currently not achieved stabilized occupancy and/or market rents. (Module 4)
  • Existing properties that are not ready for development or remodeling due to financial infeasibility
04:28

This case study will use the same property that was used in case study no. 1. The only difference between these two properties is physical.  Case study 2 property is in poor condition and needs major remodeling to achieve its highest and best use. This is why it is a non-stabilized property.  Upon remodeling completion and leasing at market rents, the property will have achieved its highest and best use and will now be considered a stabilized property. 

Upon completing this Module 3 case study, the student will have the investment analysis skills for all four Modules as they relate to a non-stabilized property's current state of development 

In completing this case study, the student will have the following skills:

  • Know if investment analysis indicates a "go" project to buy, develop or remodel, and the sustainability analysis will be the final decision making tool whether or not to proceed (advanced bubble detection)
  • Know how to maximize the equity yield if financed 
  • Know how to maximize the all cash yield during remodeling and leasing time period 
  • Know exactly how much profit to expect from the leasing effort (All modules)
  • Know exactly how much profit to expect from the development/remodeling and leasing effort (Modules 1,2,3 & 4)
  • Know how to calculate the property's current market value if construction is 100% complete but not fully occupied and/or leased at market rents (Module 4) 
  • Know how to calculate the property's current market value before development or remodeling (Modules 1,2 & 3)
  • Know how to a determine the appropriate detailed development or remodeling budget without causing financial infeasibility (Modules 1,2 & 3) 
  • Know how to automatically perform a financial feasibility analysis on the proposed development or remodeling projects (Modules 1,2 & 3)
  • Know how to determine the property's highest and best use (All modules)
  • Know how to add a holding period to the development timeline if a development or remodeling project is not currently financially feasible 
2 questions

How to determine if an income producing property is a stabilized or non-stabilized property. 

12:19

The software learning tool has now produced the case study's list of relevant due diligence questions for our subject property. This lecture discusses how to manually fill out each question and their significance in the investment analysis. 

The student is instructed to simply copy the case study's answers into their software account in order to obtain the investment analysis result. 

07:54

At this point, the student should have successfully completed their second investment analysis in their own software account similar to the case study. 

This lecture will interpret the investment analysis results as well as familiarizing the student with concepts and how to access the underlying financial models. 

The student will be made aware of all the software features that can be practically used for their own property type.  

2 questions

What do the value results mean and how to navigate producing valuation models and graphics

07:52

This lecture will show the student how to introduce various valuation scenarios when the property's "as if complete" remodeled market value at stabilized occupancy is known from professional appraisals or other trusted sources.  

Using the value sustainability analysis, this lecture will show the student how to introduce known market values into the investment analysis. 

Each scenario's recalculated result will be interpreted showing the student whether or not the property should be purchased or not at the various appraised values. 

The student will understand why it is now important not to simply rely on a property's market value that was derived in a vacuum using traditional valuation methodologies. 

2 questions

This quiz test the student's understanding of how to input different scenarios into the model

08:57

This lecture explains what happens if the proposed remodeling project is not financially feasible. The student is shown how to add a holding period to the development timeline which determines the property's current highest and best use.  This analysis indicated what can be reasonably paid for the property in its current "as is" condition. 

Also, the student will be shown how to introduce a known current market value into the analysis and if this value is sustainable. 

Lastly, the student will discover how to introduce financing into the analysis to maximize the owners annual equity yield above the estimated competitive all cash annual property yield. 

Section 4: SECTION 4 - SUBDIVISION PROPERTIES - MODULES 1,2,3 & 4
03:09

Subdivision properties are developments that divide land into pieces that are easier to sell or otherwise develop, usually via a plat. In completing this lecture, the student will be aware that certain property types can be subdivided. There will also be an understanding that a subdivision property's current state of development comes in four different varieties:

  • Raw unentitled vacant land to be immediately developed into a subdivision once entitlements are obtained (Module 1)
  • Finished entitled vacant lot to be immediately developed (Module 2)
  • Partially finished subdivision that needs additional construction (Module 3)
  • Fully finished subdivision with remaining unsold units (Module 4)
04:33

This lecture will have a hands-on demonstration of how to navigate the software's decision tree questions which tells the software which financial models to use and which due diligence questions to produce for the subdivision case study property type. 

In completing this case study, the student will have the following skills:

  • Know if investment analysis indicates a "go" project to buy, develop or remodel, and the sustainability analysis will be the final decision making tool whether or not to proceed (advanced bubble detection)
  • Know how to maximize the equity yield if financed 
  • Know how to maximize the all cash yield during remodeling and sell-out time period 
  • Know exactly how much profit to expect from the sell-out effort (Module 4)
  • Know exactly how much profit to expect from the development/remodeling and sell-out effort (Modules 1,2 & 3)
  • Know how to calculate the property's current market value if construction is 100% complete but not fully sold out.  (Module 4) 
  • Know how to calculate the property's current market value before starting the development or remodeling (Modules 1,2 & 3)
  • Know how to a determine the appropriate detailed development or remodeling budget without causing financial infeasibility (Modules 1,2 & 3) 
  • Know how to automatically perform a financial feasibility analysis on the proposed development or remodeling projects (Modules 1,2 & 3)
  • Know how to determine the property's highest and best use (All modules)
13:10

The software learning tool has now produced the case study's list of relevant due diligence questions for our subject property. This lecture discusses how to manually fill out each question and their significance in the investment analysis. 

The student is instructed to simply copy the case study's answers into their software account in order to obtain the investment analysis result. 

08:24

At this point, the student should have successfully completed their third investment analysis in their own software account similar to the case study. 

This lecture will interpret the investment analysis results as well as familiarizing the student with concepts and how to access the underlying financial models. The student will also know how to optimize the developer's annual equity yield if construction financing is used. 

The student will be made aware of all the software features that can be practically used for their own property type. 

 

2 questions

Interpreting the investment analysis results of a subdivision

11:16

In this lecture, a known "as is" market value of the vacant land will be introduced into the case study model. From this scenario, the student will discover:

  • How the total project profit is impacted if the proposed development is still financially feasible.  
  • How to maintain project profit by isolating what the new average dwelling price point must be.
  • How to add a holding period to the development timeline if all potential development scenarios are financially infeasible. 
  • How to pinpoint the subject's "as is" vacant land's highest and best use as well as the land's current market value.   
3 questions

Introducing known market values into the models and how it impacts economic feasibility,  entrepreneurial profit, and unit price points.

Section 5: SECTION 5 - OWNER OCCUPIED SINGLE FAMILY DWELLINGS - MODULES 5 (Stabilized)
02:06

For those students that want an ultra quick start in mastering sustainability analysis regarding OWNER OCCUPIED SINGLE FAMILY or CONDO DWELLINGS they intend to personally occupy. 

  • Using a special Module 5, you will be taught how to know before you purchase if a specific property's listing price and/or its known current market value is sustainable or not during your intended ownership
  • This special Module 5 also alerts you if the asking price or current market value is an awesome buying opportunity that exceeds the markets ending sale price expectations. 
  • This information is now crucial information you need before you purchase your home or condo to prevent you from getting suckered into an existing bubble situation your property has entered
  • You will know to use this special Module 5 for only dwellings that are 100% complete and do not need major remodeling. If this is the case, you can simply can use Module 3 found in SECTION 3 (NON-STABILIZED PROPERTIES - MODULES 1, 2, 3, & 4) of this course.
03:24

This lecture will have a hands-on demonstration of how to navigate the software's decision tree questions which tells the software which financial models to use and which due diligence questions to produce for the single family case study property type.

07:21

The software learning tool has now produced the case study's list of relevant due diligence questions for our subject property. This lecture discusses how to manually fill out each question and their significance in the investment analysis. 

The student is instructed to simply copy the case study's answers into their software account in order to obtain the investment analysis result. 

10:12

At this point, the student should have successfully completed their forth investment analysis in their own software account similar to the case study. 

This lecture will interpret the investment analysis results as well as familiarizing the student with concepts and how to access the underlying financial models. 

A scenario will be introduced indicating a reduced demographic household income from previous estimates. This change in market demographics shows the student the hidden risks of value sustainability if the dwellings current market value stays the same. 

This lecture also shows the student how to use this Module 5 case study for value sustainability analysis of the last subdivision case study. 

The student will be made aware of all the software features that can be practically used for their own property type.

4 questions

How to interpret the investment analysis if the owner intends to personally occupy the property

06:50

Upon completing this Module 5 case study, the student will have the analysis skills in recognizing if any single family or condo dwelling's listing price and/or current market value is sustainable or not during an expected ownership time period.
