Course description

Real Estate Developer with Financial Modelling in Excel -  2 day Course

This two day training course from Bayfield Training investigates the different risk and return characteristics involved in property development compared to investment development. This means an entirely new approach using an alternative version of cash flow model.

Residual models (profit and site) are used to identify the main components of a scheme and the usual methods of evaluation such as profit on cost ration, rental yield and interest cover. Construction of development cash flows are then created to show phased income, and construction costs (fixed/variable/incidental), and the impacts on net cash flow. Additional performance metrics are calculated, including geared IRR and equity return.

Because finance is required in stages, development finance is often more difficult to work with than senior debt investment financing. The course will show the easiest way to deal with programmed debt draw-down functions and rolled-up interest. Development schemes mean that project-specific risk assessment is more important, and analysis on sensitivity and different scenarios are investigated in the final part of the course.

At the end of the course participants will have better knowledge to:

  • Learn how to calculate land and profit residuals
  • Learn how to structure a full development cash flow, including phased sales, S-curve and straight line cost functions
  • Learn how to find maximum bidding prices for site development and building refurbishments
  • Understanding development financing considerations and learn how to optimise financing
  • Analyse financial and project completion risks
  • Employ best practice and find solutions to common modelling problems
