Improve your real estate cash flow analysis, forecasting and valuation processes

To understand an asset's value today or in 10 years requires clean, standardised and accurate data. First, you will need to collect hard data from the property management and finance team, historical returns and macro-economic data that is usually all combined into a spreadsheet.

As each data source flows from a separate system, collating and checking this data can be time-consuming, cumbersome and complicated. This also increases the risks of making errors and often jeopardises the integrity of your model inputs, assumptions and calculations.

Using disparate systems leads to inconsistent or out of date data

Fluctuating revenue models and stress testing market and leasing assumptions

Real estate revenue is sourced primarily from tenants, but leasing terms can fluctuate over time. A range of factors are at play: tenants may vacate their space early, new competition may put downward pressure on existing stock, or economic conditions may change. 

You will need a range of data sources, including economic and market research, to build an accurate cash flow forecast model.  But with so much data being analysed, having clean data is critical. This will enable you to stress test your market and leasing assumptions, ensuring you have an accurate cash flow forecast and commercial property valuation report.

Real estate can be unpredictable. Your anchor tenant might fall into bankruptcy, newer assets may capture your market's attention, or new taxes could hit your bottom line. Then there's disruptive technology that's promising to reshape real estate. 

The fallout of Covid-19 has proved that unexpected events can occur at any time, adversely impacting property cash flows and value. Last year, investors, asset managers and valuers scrambled to understand how the commercial real estate market would be affected and how to best mitigate any risk on property value. Speed is critical in these circumstances, and without up to date property data, this is near impossible.

Real estate markets are dynamic and complex

The lack of clarity into the future and the absence of comparable transactions has made valuing a commercial building harder than ever. To help make sense of this uncharted territory, real estate teams are looking to a tried and true commercial property valuation method: discounted cash flow (DCF).

DCF is more critical now than ever because of how granular the process can be to understand the property’s value over the entire expected hold period. The only disadvantages; the process is only as good as the analyst's assumptions.
