Development Video Course

An excerpt from our larger course, “Introduction to Real Estate Investment Analysis” — Learn how real estate developers and rehabbers evaluate potential projects

Real estate expert Frank Gallinelli, ivy-league professor, best-selling author, and founder of RealData Software, teaches this master class. You will learn how to approach development projects intelligently, and how to separate the winners from the losers.

In this excerpt from his complete course, Frank covers the basics:

  • The back-door approach — a use looking for a site
  • The front-door approach — a site looking for a use
  • Due diligence
  • Project cost analysis, including an understanding of hard costs, soft costs, and imputed interest
  • Development financing, including loan utilization factor

…then takes you through a series of virtual case studies that deal with three different development scenarios:

  • Small office building development, where you demolish and rebuild
  • Apartment building development, with a more detailed project cost analysis
  • Phased commercial development, where you may be leasing some units while still developing others; with month-by-month planning for costs and loan draws
