Financial modeling in real estate is used to forecast the future cash flows of a property and determine its value. For example, a development project for an apartment building would require a model that shows the project’s capital costs, condo sales (absorption rate), and resulting cash flow and profit to the developer. Important metrics in real estate modeling include net operating income (NOI), Cap Rate, and internal rate of return (IRR).
