The BOE is a one-year snapshot of a real estate project’s financial performance, often used to filter bad deals from a series of development options. The idea is to produce a simple measure across all properties, such as return on cost (ROC).
A condominium is a building, or complex of buildings, in which every apartment or home is individually owned. Financial analysis of a condominium is different from an income producing property because the return on cost (ROC) for a condominium is generated from the total sale of the condos instead of the rent cash flow.
Multifamily residential is a rental income property that contains multiple separate housing units. A multifamily building generally has one owner, or landlord, that rents units to residential inhabitants, or tenants.
Hotels are lodging businesses that provide accommodation, meals, and other services for travelers and tourists. Hotel owners may own both the building and the business and are responsible for all expenses related to business operations and building improvements.
