Net Future Value (NFV) or Capital Accumulation article

Net Future Value (NFV) is most helpful in non-real estate investments where cash flows are reinvested in the investment. However, there are real estates situations where cash flows can be reinvested when portfolios and other structures are in place, and the Net Future Value Reinvestment Rate can be more reflective of the overall performance of the combined properties.

Video Description:
The topic for this commercial real estate investment analysis video is Net Future Value (NFV) or Capital Accumulation . Throughout the video planEASe Software is used to illustrate Net Future Value (NFV) or Capital Accumulation . The video does not use the current Proforma Example, but all the factors that the Net Future Value (NFV) or Capital Accumulation are sensitive to are covered.

How the Net Future Value (NFV) is calculated?
Definition
The value at the end of the Holding Period of all positive cash flows reinvested at the Reinvestment Rate from an investment, regardless of the invested amount, less the Present Value, discounted at the Safe Rate, of all negative cash flows. The Net Future Value, then, measures the additional amount of money that the investor would have at the end of the Holding Period as a result of making the investment.
Example
This example is designed to make sure the effect of the Reinvestment Rate of the future value process is very clear and not just shown as a mathematical formula. The actual investment was not very good (in fact there is $0 profit), but because of the reinvestment opportunity, which could be some outside investment or the same investment, the Future Value shows a gain of $22,116.60.
