CCIM 103 Coming to Central Oregon!
September 18 - 21, 2017
At COAR

In CI 103, you'll incorporate the CCIM Decision-Making Model into all case studies. Begin to develop the practice of applying the CCIM Communications/Negotiations Model to all real estate decisions with a focus on using this Model in interest-based negotiations.

Whether an investor or a user, you will approach real estate problems from the perspective of the user/occupant of real estate and thereby be in a position to understand unique issues. Learn to use market and financial analysis skills for user space decisions, and apply the cost of occupancy models for ownership and leasing.

Explore new concepts regarding user discount rate selection such as using multiple rates for some occupancy decisions based on perception of risk related to the various occupancy cash flows.  After completing this course, you will be able to:
  • Apply key occupancy decision-making skills such as comparative lease analysis, lease versus purchase analysis, lease buyout analysis, and sale-leaseback analysis to optimize user space decisions.
  • Determine how financial reporting requirements for real estate influences the user decisions.
  • Integrate negotiation skills with financial analysis skills to maximize user outcomes.

Cannabis Commercial Leases: Not Your "Run-of-the-Mill" Commercial Lease
By Jennifer Clifton of Clifton Cannabis Law, LLC
Thinking of leasing your real estate to a cannabis business? The returns you can make on a commercial lease to a cannabis grower, processor or retailer can be extremely lucrative. Consequently, the higher the risk, the higher the reward. Before you finalize the lease, make sure you have a lawyer review it to prevent potential pitfalls down the road. The cannabis industry is unlike any other industry. There are several factors to consider before you jump in. Below I will highlight a few high level issues, but the list is by no means exhaustive.
