Simple Multifamily Development Model - Buil-to-Sell

This is a simplified version of my multifamily development model. Multifamily + Commercial Units can be included.

This is a simple version of my ready-to-use multifamily development financial model/pro forma. This is a build-to-sell development model, which considers a post development sale scenario.

I found that there is a lack of a decent simple user-friendly development model on the market. So I created this model, which is shorter and less detailed and yet gives all the essential metrics for the initial feasibility of the project.

This model is suitable for built-to-sell development projects. My built-to-rent development models can be found under the links:
This model will serve you perfectly for a quick and easy analysis of a real estate residential development opportunity which might include a commercial component. This model was created specifically for projects with the development period of shorter than 20 months.

In case you are looking for the financial model suitable for other property types, please contact me directly or refer to other best practices on my channel.


This model is for you, if you are looking for a quick analysis of a multifamily built-to-sell development property and would like to measure profitability and returns.

This model is perfectly suitable for private use. As a model which can be presented to investors or clients, my standard or prime models would work better.

To make things as easy as possible for you, I have included an instructions summary tab, which provides main explanations on how to use the model.

This model is:
- Clean and transparent;
- Professional;
- Reliable;
- 100% dynamic;
- Easy to use, understand and modify;
- Prepared by an industry professional with a significant track record;
- Includes only useful information.

The best thing is that I update my models non-stop, so after the purchase you are eligible to use a new version with added features and calculations.


This simple version of multifamily built-to-sell development model will help you to:

- Estimate profitability and returns of the development project;
- Check feasibility of various floor plans;
- Assess a range of construction budgets and timing assumptions;
- Assess a range of exit scenarios.


The package includes 1 Unlocked Excel File with instructions summary.

The model consists of 3 interconnected tabs.

- Assumptions Tab: flexible assumptions with up to 20 months of the construction period.

- Summary Tab: Includes 3 years of monthly cash flow, flexible sales revenues, flexible sales period, development costs distributed based on the construction timing, mortgage financing calculations, and main metrics summary: IRR, Equity Multiple, Profit Margin, Net Profit.

- Construction Schedule Tab.

All residential and commercial units are sold after the development. The model takes into account a pre-sale period with flexible 10% deposits. The sales revenue is calculated on the basis of the average sales price for all apartments. The sales period is flexible.

For residential-only projects, the commercial unit assumptions can be cleared out.


- Summary with all the main metrics;
- IRR, Equity Multiple, Net Profit;
- NOI, Debt Service, Net Leveraged Cash Flow;
- Total Sales Proceeds;
- Financing components including only construction loan;
- Construction Loan repayment upon sale of the entire project;

In case you have any questions or concerns before purchase, please feel free to contact me directly.

If you have specific requirements for the model or need a consultation, please also contact me.
