An Introduction to Real Estate Finance serves as the core of knowledge for a single-semester first course in real estate finance. Unlike other real estate finance textbooks with their encyclopedic but typically stale details, this book combines a short traditional text with a living website. The book gives students and professors highly applied information, and its regularly updated online features make it especially useful for this practitioner-oriented audience. Covering fundamental topics such as accounting and tax, mortgages, capital markets, REITs and more, the book also addresses the 2008 financial crisis and its impact on the real estate profession. This volume is a valuable companion for students of real estate finance as well as financial analysts, portfolio managers, investors and other professionals in the field. It offers a concise, efficient, finance-centric alternative to traditional real estate finance texts. It includes a website that gives readers the tools to find current information about their own areas of specialization-a unique approach not found in other real estate finance textbooks. It gives students and professors the material to examine every subject in broad and highly detailed terms.
