This book presents an easy-to-read guide to applying quantitative analysis in real estate aimed at non-cognate undergraduate and masters students, and meets the requirements of modern professional practice. Through case studies and examples illustrating applications using data sourced from dedicated real estate information providers and major firms in the industry, the book provides an introduction to the foundations underlying statistical data analysis, common data manipulations and understanding descriptive statistics, before gradually building up to more advanced quantitative analysis, modelling and forecasting of real estate markets.
Our examples and case studies within the chapters have been specifically compiled for this book and explicitly designed to help the reader acquire a better understanding of the quantitative methods addressed in each chapter. Our objective is to equip readers with the skills needed to confidently carry out their own quantitative analysis and be able to interpret empirical results from academic work and practitioner studies in the field of real estate and in other asset classes.

This real estate formula lets you know how much income your property will generate if all units within it are rented and if there are no defaults in rent payments. This can be a useful measure to compare with your actual income.
Along the same lines, the price per square foot real estate formula can be useful when comparing investments. Savvy investors can use this calculation to evaluate if a rental property is overpriced before it is purchased.
All smart investments are made to reap a return, making this a fundamental real estate formula. Effectively, the return on investment formula allows you to see how much of your initial investment you can recoup annually.
Successful real estate investments will involve more money coming in than going out. You need to subtract your capital expenditures (roughly defined as large expenses that do not reoccur) from your net operating income to figure out your cash flow from operations.
This figure is often used to evaluate risk when making a real estate investment. Too high of a figure when using this real estate formula can indicate that it will be an uphill battle to break even with an investment property and recoup debts.
The gross rent multiplier real estate formula allows investors to figure out the market value of a rental property. This is especially useful when selling a rental property, as it allows you to set the right price the first time. But as well, the savvy investor will figure out the GRM of any property they intend to buy, to figure out if it is a worthwhile investment.
