Many important commercial real estate decisions center around lease analysis. This includes comparing multiple lease proposals side by side to determine which one is the best, deciding whether to lease or own a commercial property, and understanding whether or not a sale and leaseback decision makes sense.

And yet, many commercial real estate professionals lack the skills to analyze these types of lease problems.

Perhaps it’s because you never learned commercial lease analysis in the first place. Or maybe it’s been a while and you just need to brush up on your skills to fill in the gaps.

Either way, commercial real estate lease analysis isn’t an easy topic to tackle. That’s why we created this course.
