How will you prepare for real estate modeling
Real estate modeling is a complex area. However, if you start with basics, you’ll gain confidence.
Breaking Into Wall Street (BIWS) has created an online training program on real estate REIT financial modeling.
Real estate REIT financial modeling training course details
Real Estate & REIT Modeling teaches you how to model property development and acquisitions, and how to project and value real estate investment trusts (REITs).
The program is based on case studies of an office development & sale, a hotel acquisition & renovation, and a REIT operating model and valuation for AvalonBay Communities, where we use real SEC filings and equity research from banks like Citi and JP Morgan to support the numbers.
You’ll start with a crash-course on real estate development and REITs, and then move into the office development and hotel acquisition case studies, where you’ll learn how to estimate a property’s size, financial performance, and returns to investors.
After that, we’ll jump into a detailed 3-statement model for AvalonBay with support for their different real estate segments, and conclude with a full valuation, including the usual methodologies as well as real estate-specific ones such as the Net Asset Value (NAV) model.

What are your alternatives? And what’s your investment in this program?
There are limited options when it comes to learning real estate modeling:
- Real Estate Financial Modeling: $600 – $1,000 per Excel file; videos are separate and cost more.
- Wall Street Training Real Estate Development Modeling: $300.
- Wall Street Training REIT Financial Modeling: $750 for just a single Excel file – no lessons or videos.
So if you want to learn everything taught in this course elsewhere, you’d be spending a minimum of $1,000 – and you wouldn’t even get videos walking you through it all. Yes, you read that correctly: $1,000 for a single Excel file.
With the Breaking Into Wall Street version, you get more material – including multiple different real estate development models, a REIT operating model, a REIT valuation, and quick reference guides for all the key concepts – for just $247, as opposed to $1,000.
That’s a 75% discount for MORE content, material, and lessons that you can watch and follow along with yourself.
This is extremely specialized material – good luck finding this level of detail online or in finance textbooks – so I actually thought about pricing this higher to begin with.
And in the future, the price will be going up, since $247 is still much lower than all the available alternatives.
This is information that makes you far more valuable to firms, than if you simply know basic accounting and valuation for “general” situations.
And there’s more material coming – potential future lessons will include coverage of REIT merger models and LBO models, and more real estate development topics.
If you sign up today, you get all of this for only $247 – a 75% discount – plus free access to all future additions to this course as soon as they’re released.
Plus, you get a no-hassle money-back guarantee
Just like every one of the BIWS products and courses, this comes with our unconditional 60-day money back guarantee.
