Interested in applied math? Enjoy business? Want to make a lot of money? Then this program is for you. Whether you are imagining a side hustle flipping homes, renting out a property as an AirBnB, or considering becoming a mortgage loan officer, luxury home builder, or real estate investment trust analyst (all lucrative options!), you will learn what it takes to get you there. This program will be brought to life with a series of hands-on activities such as conducting an appraisal of an actual home on the market, filling out a residential loan application, and constructing an amortization table. Students will go out into the field, visiting luxury properties and commercial buildings. Important guest lecturers such as real estate agents and builders will be featured, as well. Here is a day-by-day, up close look at what we will cover.
First we’ll begin with the essential base knowledge you need to know. What does it mean to be pre-qualified for a loan? What does the loan process look like? You’ll learn crucial terminology such as purchase and sale agreement, and you’ll learn how a sale is closed. Students will complete their own appraisal and analyze the current market with a new ability to read the direction the market is heading in.
Next we will focus on lucrative careers in banking and real estate. Successful Loan Officers make well into the six figures. What do you need to know in these fields? You’ll learn about amortization rates, appraisals, and how to safely make a deal. How do you determine a down payment? What are the terms of a loan – is it a 15 year fixed loan, for example? How are these loans calculated? What is an ARM loan? A home equity loan? How is all of this done by the bank?
Student Comments from Summer 2023
‘During the program we discussed many jobs and opportunities in the real estate business. We talked about different films and forms of real estate like REITs, Private Equity, and house flipping. My teacher was very knowledgeable on business and the topic. I liked that we would have worksheets to do, it was great for practice and understanding.’
‘I enjoyed the various hands-on activities. Going out and appraising real houses and comparables, calculating the ROI, small research projects, and actually speaking with experienced speakers (especially in person).’
‘I was also very impressed with the amount of information I was able to obtain in just a week. I am very thankful that I had a teacher that I could relate to and who was genuine in helping us understand the context and what field we could pursue.’
