This is an excel model built from scratch for value-add, opportunistic, and core multifamily properties. It was designed to work best for scenarios where individual units will be rehabbed over the hold at varying times. It can work for properties with 1-12 units. Keep in mind however, there are probably more appropriate models out there for one and two-unit properties – see Spencer’s single family investment model. This model is not meant for new development.

The model was built to give the user a lot of independent control over certain variables affecting assumptions throughout the hold period. For example, a user can control the annual rent increase for every year, pick between one of two methods for choosing the purchase price, and also project how much of an increase in rent per unit would be experienced after each unit rehab is completed.

Due to there being a lot of moving parts, there are many checks to help prevent inconsistencies with assumptions. For example, if you change the holding period, but did not change the construction schedule and you assume an exit before the construction is done, there will be a warning. There will also be a warning if you go below the minimum debt service coverage ratio among other checks and balances.

There is instruction and bits of information throughout the model. Not all of the explanation is included, but it should be fairly intuitive. I hope you find it useful and if you happen to discover any errors, please contact me.

Happy modeling!
