Commercial Mortgages Course Overview

This Commercial Mortgages course explores the elements that determine loan details for income-producing investment properties. Commercial mortgages are used to fund real estate investment ventures and are important for any credit analyst who wishes to understand issues relevant to real estate financing or would like to specialize in the real estate sector.

In this course, we examine key metrics of the real estate lending process and dive into the key underwriting parameters for commercial mortgages. We also work through a realistic client example to understand the inner workings of a commercial mortgage deal. In this case study, we examine a rent roll analysis, risk rating, and the pricing of the loan.
