Real Estate Career Descriptions – Investment

Contrary to what many people may first think, “real estate” encompasses far more than simply the residential brokers that help you buy and sell your home. In fact, the term refers to a much broader industry, including developers, financial analysts, corporate real estate officers, property managers, appraisers, and more.

Investment and Portfolio Analysis

Many real estate graduates work for themselves as private real estate investors, or as analysts for larger corporations or syndicates. Key to success in property investment is a solid understanding the structure of real estate markets, knowledge about how to analyze the cash flows generated by income properties, and insight into the proper role of real estate within a larger financial portfolio.
