I built, and would like to share, a real estate portfolio model for valuing a portfolio of up to 30 properties. This is a “roll-up” model, meaning you will need to model your property-level cash flows before financing in ARGUS or a separate Excel model. However, once you have property-level cash flows, this is a quick and efficient way to see how the properties perform when modeled together as a whole.

The model is fully dynamic, calculates all of the basic return and risk metrics, handles your financing assumptions, allows for multiple scenarios, and uses just six tabs. Below you will find the link to download this portfolio acquisition model, as well as a tutorial on how to use the model.

If you like this model, but don’t have ARGUS, you might find some of our other real estate financial analysis models helpful to model property-level cash flows. You can also check out our entire collectiono fo Excel real estate models. Finally, check out our free ARGUS training tips and resources.

Download The Model

To make this model accessible to everyone, it is offered on a "Pay What You're Able" basis with no minimum (enter $0 if you'd like) or maximum (your support helps keep the content coming - typical real estate models sell for $100 - $300 each). Just enter a price together with an email address to send the download link to, and then click 'Continue'. If you have any questions about our "Pay What You're Able" program or why we offer our models on this basis, please reach out to either Mike or Spencer.

Note (especially for Gmail users): The model is sent via email and occasionally is blocked by spam filters. If you don't see the email arrive within five minutes, check your spam folder.
