This course enables students to understand the mechanisms and options for financing a Real estate development project.

As such, it is fundamental to an understanding of the real estate development process, as well as to real estate finance. It builds upon the concepts included in The Development Process course, and is complementary to the course in Real Estate Finance. However, none of these courses are pre-requisite to any other.
