Finance Elective: FIN 370 satisfies 1 of the 2 finance elective courses for the major.

Day & Time: M 1900-2145, HSS 248

Instructor: D. Hysinger

This course covers the fundamentals of commercial real estate ownership and management. It will describe and evaluate strategies for creating value in an income-producing property, apply the concept of investment real estate equity, and compare leverage strategies to increase portfolio value. The manner in which tenant improvements and the entitlement process constrain financial strategies and create marketing opportunities will also be covered.

Commercial Leasing and Development

FIN 372 [01] 23800 Commercial Leasing and Development

Prerequisite: FIN 350 with C- or better, enrollment priority for finance majors and minors.

Finance Elective: FIN 372 satisfies 1 of the 2 finance elective courses for the major.

Day & Time: TH 1900-2145, BUS 213

Instructor: D. Hysinger

This course applies acquired classroom knowledge to a concrete real-world commercial leasing and land use development case. Students will address the financial challenges of a redevelopment case that has evaded a financial resolution in recent history. Each student in the class will work individually to create a commercial land use development and leasing/business plan for the site. The in-class instruction will cover each theoretical topic underlying the components of the proposal. These include the entitlement process, leasing, financial management, investor financing, and sustainability issues. As each lecture addresses the case from the perspective of one subject in the course, students will be working on their written plan, which will include the economic pro-forma, the costs and income to establish the potential yield, the IRR, financial analysis, market evaluation, returns, and financial justifications for proceeding with the project.
