Real estate financial modeling material on the frontend of A.CRE and on our YouTube channels is meant to expose you to specific concepts or models. It’s not meant to teach you the A to Zs of real estate financial modeling. In fact the reason we created the Accelerator is because, while we’ve shared hundreds of posts and models over the years, many of our A.CRE readers need a more regimented methodology for learning the most basic to the most advanced elements of this discipline.
So in response to those requests, we created the A.CRE real estate financial Accelerator Program.
The Accelerator is a comprehensive real estate financial modeling training program that is meant to get you to advanced proficiency in the most efficient (i.e. accelerated) way. The program starts with you taking 17 case-based, core courses using 20 real-to-life case studies, with each course building upon the last.
The 17 core courses begin with the basics – direct cap and DCF analysis – and become progressively more difficult as you continue through the core. In the final three courses, you will build three institutional-quality real estate financial models from scratch – an acquisitions, asset management, and development model. Upon completing the 17 core courses, you will receive the A.CRE Accelerator Certificate of Completion and be considered a graduate of the program.
Beyond the core courses, the program contains hundreds of hours of additional practice and advanced content to augment and broaden the learning in the 17 core courses. This advanced material is now organized into 6 specialty endorsement modules. This additional material is especially valuable for those who enter the program with a strong proficiency in modeling but are needing to fill gap in their knowledge, as well as those who completed the core program and are looking to advance further. The additional content includes multiple advanced concept lessons, additional practice case studies, numerous extra mini-video tutorials, and over 15 additional Watch Me Build videos. We still add new modules on an ongoing basis, so there may be even more content when you read this.
To help you get the most out of the above on-demand content, the program includes an interactive Q&A section where you can engage directly with the instructors (Spencer and Michael). The guys have responded to over 1,000 questions that you can review for added clarity, or you can ask your own question related to anything real estate financial modeling or career related. In response to questions, the guys often create custom video tutorials to ensure full comprehension.
