Pre-conference Workshop
INVESTING IN NON-TRADITIONAL REAL ESTATE CLASSES
Wednesday February 20, 2013
7:15 am to 8:15 am

 

What will be covered:
• Examine how you can invest in more specialized asset types, such as
Hospitality, Healthcare, Owner Occupied and Special Use properties
• Learn about unique property metrics such as RevPar (Hotel), Price per
Bed (ALF and SNF), Economic Occupancy (Self Storage), Rent per Linear
Foot (Marina)
• Understand how typical real estate measures such as NOI, Cap Rates and
Appraised Value are impacted by the business and credit attributes of
these specialized asset types
• Find out who is holding these assets, and which institutions are likely to
be actual sellers and not just ‘price checkers’

 

How you will benefit:
• Learn to spot real estate investments “far from the madding crowds”
allowing you to bring broader diversity to your portfolio holdings
• Discover where the bargains can be found, which sub-sectors are likely
to rebound earliest, and which asset types to avoid
• Learn to leverage and extend classic distressed credit underwriting
strategies across many different real estate asset categories.
