Some appraisal assignments require the use of forecasting models, often the the models used are discounted cash flow (DCF) models that consider the future cash flows and the net present value of property given existing leases and future income expectations.  


A subdivision analysis considers the sale of future lots or units over time given available absorption information provided by other competitive properties or based on the past performance of the subject subdivision.  


Forecasting models are also used to calculate Rent-up Loss, which establishes the expected loss to an owner during the period of time that it takes to get to a typical market occupancy level.
