Financial Analysis with Real Estate Marketing (FARM)

Financial Analysis with Real Estate Modeling (FARM) is an online self-paced Microsoft Excel course that teaches users how to financially model commercial real estate (CRE) investments from scratch. Starting with the absolute basics in Excel, FARM includes 6 levels that progressively get more difficult. Each of the levels includes background pages that break down concepts, definitions, and key real estate terms as well as an instructional voice-over video recording that users can follow. At the end of each level, there is a quiz that tests comprehension of the material covered. The videos total approximately 5 hours in length and the course typically takes anywhere from 7 – 10 hours to complete depending on the user’s initial skill level.
