After a diagnostic quiz on the six financial functions of one and a brief review, General Appraiser Income Approach/Part 2 opens with a thorough treatment of discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis. Topics include identifying components of a DCF, projecting cash flows, analyzing leases, solving for value in a variety of common situations, and supporting the discount rate. The effects of debt financing including cash equivalence, leverage, and equity analysis are covered in detail. Income patterns and property models including applications are followed by investment analysis topics and risk analysis. Specialized applications include subdivision analysis and prospective project analysis. The course concludes with a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of direct and yield capitalization.

Learning Objectives:
    • Recognize definitions, principles and concepts related to the income capitalization approach.
    • Identify, derive, and apply the formula on which DCF Analysis is based.
    • Learn to calculate present value (PV), capital outlay, net present value (NPV) and IRR.
    • Perform DCF analysis with different yield rates for income and reversion (split rates) and identify common errors in the analysis.
    • Identifying characteristics of amortization and calculating a payment, loan balance, and term for fixed-rate amortizing mortgages with various payment frequencies.
    • Solve for value given equity yield rates and properties with level and irregular income patterns, dollar and terminal capitalization rate-determined reversions, and DCR-determined loan amounts.
    • Apply concepts learned to select an appropriate discount rate and calculate the yield rate for fee simple, leased fee, and leasehold estates in real property.
    • Examine circumstances where the sum of the individual interests equals the fee simple and others where it does not.
    • Recognize similarities between direct capitalization and yield capitalization using discounted cash flow.
    • Identify additional information required by yield capitalization using discounted cash flow over that required by direct capitalization.
    • Define types of perpetuity income patterns and calculate their value using direct and yield capitalization.
    • Identify two cases for the property model (level income and compound rate of change in income and value) and the premises underlying each.
    • Solve for yield rate, compound rate of change, and total change in value for both cases of the property model (level income and income and value changing at the same compound annual rate).
    • Recognize differences in property model formulations and apply variations of the property model to case study problems.
    • Recognize how estimated yield rates can be supported by capitalization rates extracted from comparable sales using yield capitalization formulas.
    • Identify the respective characteristics of direct capitalization and yield capitalization, and compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of the two methods.
