Real Estate Finance & Investments prepares readers to understand the risks and rewards of financing and investing in residential and commercial real estate. Concepts and techniques included in the chapters and problem sets are used in many careers related to real estate. These include investing, development financing, appraising, consulting, managing real estate portfolios, leasing, managing property, analyzing site locations, corporate real estate, and managing real estate investment funds. This material is also relevant to individuals who want to understand real estate better when making their own personal investment and financing decisions. 

As this current edition is being revised, there is a lot of uncertainty about the impact that COVID-19 will have on different sectors of the commercial real estate market.
