This model is one of the most detailed and comprehensive out there to assess Retail, Office, or Industrial Properties, either as a value-add or already stabilized deal. This is not a Multifamily or Ground-Up Development Model. The maximum number of tenants is 60. If you need adjustments to the model please contact me.

Its functionality supports a wide variety of investment scenarios including different capital structures, lease recoveries, tenant rollover, refinance analysis as well as asset management considerations. It is ideal for brokers or investors, who are looking in presenting a deal to capital partners or clients or would like an accurate valuation of an investment property. Even though the model was originally designed for US-use, area, and currency can be adjusted in the Underwriting Dashboard.

The model has taken years of building and updating, which has translated into a very detailed and robust tool, which makes it a great Excel-based alternative for Argus at a fraction of the cost.

As a first step, review the Version Tab, which gives you an overview of the color-coding methodology and the sections of the model. If you would like training on how to use the model most efficiently, feel free to reach out.

General Walkthrough:

Value-Add Case Study:


The model has undergone various iterations and extensive testing to ensure that there are no errors. Given the size and impressive depth, it is impossible to ensure there are none. However, if you do come across errors please let me know so that I can fix them.

The Model is provided as-is. Customization is available upon request. I’m continuously updating the model and therefore feedback is appreciated.

Hope you enjoy the model and feel free to reach out to me for comments, questions, or additional requests.
