Improving Your Experience
This class is open to all. This class is a prerequisite to CI 103 & CI 104
Learn and apply the CCIM Interest-based Negotiations Model to your most challenging transactions. Learn new, proven strategies to client acceptance that will get you out of the "high/low game" and other tactics that can derail a successful transaction.
Interest-based negotiation is a three-step process that brings discipline to your negotiation strategies. It involves identifying:
* What parties are involved in the negotiation, and what are they seeking?
* What can we do to get the other parties what they need, so that we can get what we want?
* What happens if there is no agreement?
Through an interactive case study format and role play, you will learn to:
* Satisfy the interests of parties involved in the negotiation (without sacrificing yours)
* Develop strategies for identifying and addressing challenges in a principled, transparent manner
* Maintain a collaborative approach to negotiations
* Effectively communicate the consequences of not reaching an agreement

CI 103: User Decision Analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate
Linking a company's enterprise-level goals with their real estate strategy is key to offering the right space solution. Whether an investor, operator, or a broker, it's important to approach real estate problems from the perspective of the user/occupant. In CI 103, you'll learn such advanced skills as how to perform a comparative lease analysis between competing assets, analyze a sale-leaseback to help a client generate capital from their owned real estate, and advise a client on a lease vs. purchase decision to facilitate an expansion.
Incorporating the CCIM Decision-Making Model and the CCIM Communications/Negotiations Model, CI 103 explores 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 vs. purchase analysis, lease buyout analysis, and sale-leaseback analysis to optimize user space decisions;
* Determine how the financial reporting requirements for real estate influence user decisions; and
* Integrate negotiation skills with financial analysis skills to maximize user outcomes.
Online, self-paced courses are not eligible for CE.
