Sponsor / Contact
The purpose of this seminar is to introduce the use of modern financial calculators that are commonly used by commercial real estate professionals.
The basic features of the calculator will be introduced through demonstration using a number of examples and problems that are real estate specific. While the central theme of the seminar is the HP12C calculator, several alternative machines, including the HP10, HP17B2, and HP19B2 will also be mentioned.
The objective of the seminar is to expose the student to many of the basic features of the machines, so that the student may determine which features are important to his or her professional tasks. A second objective is to give the student sufficient basic skills to attend the Appraisal Institute’s income property courses.
This seminar is developed for commercial real estate professionals. There will be extensive discussion of the basic functions of the calculator along with a thorough treatment of the financial functions, but there will be no treatment of the statistical, depreciation, bond, or programming abilities variously available with these machines. In addition, students must be familiar with the concepts of compounding and discounting prior to the class.
