The underwriting process is a detailed and systematic analysis of a potential borrower’s creditworthiness, including employment history, salary, financial statements and performance, publicly available information, independent credit reports and this involves both quantitative and qualitative analysis. Though quantitative analysis of structuring or developing the net operating income (NOI) or cash flow is an pivotal step in underwriting of a commercial real estate (CRE) property, many qualitative judgments feed into the estimation of property cash flow, coverage, and value that supplement the quantitative analysis. Moreover, quantitative aspects cannot be concluded without understanding the qualitative factors underlying the deal as commercial real estate operates in an ever-changing market dynamics including surrounding properties, demographics, and local, regional, and national economics.
