Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) Valuation in Real Estate

The Discounted Cash Flow Valuation (DCF) method is one of the most solid commercial real estate valuation methods since the analysis focuses on the expected future cash flows which can be derived when renting the property on the market and by taking into account the required capital expenditures (CAPEX) to get there.

Financial Model Features

This commercial real estate valuation model analyses the contracted rent, forecasts the estimated rent roll, projects expected operating expenses, net operating income, CAPEX, and discounts the Free Cash Flows to their present value. The model then also is helpful to look at the valuation from different angles:

  • DCF Value
  • Sensitivity Analysis to check the impact of key assumptions
  • Relative Valuation metrics in terms of Gross Yield, Net Yield, Value per sq ft or sqm
