Drawing upon four decades of experience developing, owning, and managing properties and on almost thirty years of teaching at the Harvard Business School, William J. Poorvu offers an insider's perspective on how to make smart decisions about real estate.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The real estate and#8220;gameand#8221; is played by people, and itand#8217;s the stories of real people that make Poorvuand#8217;s introduction to the industry colorful and interesting. You will meet players ranging from real estate moguls to small-scale developers to individual investors in exotic investment instruments. Their stories evolve throughout the book and illustrate how these peopleand#8212;with all their complicated needs, talents, and motivesand#8212;fit into the larger process and context. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;In clear and nontechnical language, Poorvu explains how variablesand#8212;players, properties, capital markets, and the external environmentand#8212;come together to influence the shape and outcome of a real estate deal. He explains the time frame for different kinds of real estate investments and walks the reader through the key and#8220;periods of playand#8221; in the real estate game: concept, commitment, development, operation, reward, and reinvestment. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Iandgt;The Real Estate Gameandlt;/Iandgt; introduces a simple but powerful and#8220;back-of-the-envelopeand#8221; technique for analyzing the financial implications of a potential deal. Using this tool and others, Poorvu shows readers how to use direct investments, syndicates, and REITs to get into the real estate game across a broad range of property types: residential, office, hotel, industrial, and retail. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Offering unique insight into the ways that developers and investors can create value, andlt;Iandgt;The Real Estate Gameandlt;/Iandgt; is both a perfect introduction for the novice and an invaluable overview for the experienced professional.
