Real Estate Finance in India

First Edition

February 2014 | 368 pages | SAGE Response
The book offers a concise yet comprehensive understanding of real estate finance in India. The central themes of this book are functioning, instruments, and decision analysis related to home loans and residential mortgage banking. These themes are also extended to commercial real estate borrowing and secondary markets.

The chapters are organized to offer practically useful and theoretically sound knowledge of real estate finance. Realistic scenarios, examples, expert opinions, illustrations, and, most importantly, hands-on financial exercises are extensively used to offer a concrete knowledge of the intricacies of real estate finance. The book systematically progresses from basic financial concepts to more complex discussions (such as exotic home loan types and their analysis).

Beyond solved examples, the book also offers practice problems with answers so that a reader understands the financial instruments. PowerPoint presentations for the various chapters will be useful for instructors. Real estate investors (institutional or individuals), academics, students, professionals, and generalist real estate enthusiasts will find the book useful for their learning and real-life applications.
