E-learning Topic ~ Development Commercial (Apartment, Self Storage)

This walk through is useful for Apartments, Self-Storage, Mobile Home Parks, Marina Slips, Multi-Family, Retail, Office, or Industrial Development projects. The step by step method does not assume that you have any experience with planEASe, although any prior experience will make the walk through more pleasant. The case study is Apartments, and the main topics will be entering the development costs, lease up of the units, and construction draw loan. Many 'what if' scenarios are coved in the sensitivity and risk movies.

Training Topic Notes - This training topic shows you how you would enter an apartment property into planEASe. Although this particular example is apartments, this same example could be Self Storage or any analysis based on units.
