Excel Chapter 7 Capstone – Real Estate 

  

Project Description:

You are the office manager for a real estate company in northern Utah County. You tracked real estate listings, including city, agent, listing price, sold price, etc. Agents can represent a seller, a buyer, or both (known as dual agents). Your assistant prepared the spreadsheet structure with agent names, agent types, the listing and sold prices, and the listing and sold dates. You want to complete the spreadsheet by calculating the number of days each house was on the market before being sold, agent commissions, and bonuses. In addition, you will use conditional functions to calculate summary statistics. For further analysis, you will insert a map chart to indicate the average house selling price by city. Finally, you will create a partial loan amortization table and calculate cumulative interest and principal to show a potential buyer to help the buyer make decisions.

     

Start Excel. Download   and open the file named Exp19_Excel_Ch07_Cap_RealEstate.xlsx.   Grader has automatically added your last name to the beginning of the   filename.

 

The spreadsheet   contains codes (BA, DA, SA) to represent agent roles (Buyer’s Agent, Dual   Agent, Seller’s Agent). You want to switch the codes for the actual   descriptions.
  In cell E12 of the Details sheet, insert the SWITCH function to evaluate the   agent code in cell D12. Include mixed cell references to the codes and roles   in the range J2:K4 for the values
  and results arguments. use all cell references in the function. Copy the   function to the range E1:E9.

 

 

Now you want to   calculate the number of days between the list date and sale date.
 

  In cell J12, insert the DAYS function to calculate the number of days between   the Listing Date and the Sale Date. Copy the function to the range J1:J9.

 

You want to calculate   agent commissions based on their role.
 

  In cell K12, insert the IFS function to calculate the agent’s commission   based on the agent code and the applicable rates in the range L2:L4. Use   relative and mixed references correctly. Copy the function to the range   K1:K9.

 

 

You want to calculate   a bonus if the sold price was at least equal to the listing price, and if the   house sold within 0 days after being listed.
 

  In cell L12, insert an IF function with a nested AND function to calculate a   bonus. The AND function should ensure both conditions are met: Sold Price   divided by the Listing Price is greater than or equal to 100% (cell L7) and   the Days on Market are less than or equal to 0 (cell L8). If both conditions   are met, the bonus is $1,000 (cell L9). Otherwise, the bonus is $0. Use mixed   cell references to the input values in the range L7:L9. Copy the function to   the range L12:L9.

 

The top-left section   of the spreadsheet is designed for summary statistics for one condition. You   will calculate average selling prices and the number of houses sold in each   city (the condition).
 

  In cell B2, insert the AVERAGEIF function to calculate the average Sold Price   for houses in the city of Alpine. Use mixed references for the range; use a   relative reference to cell A2. Copy the function and use the Paste Formulas   option to paste the function in the range B:B5 so that the bottom border in   cell B5 is preserved.

 

You want to count the   number of houses in one city.
 

  In cell C2, insert the COUNTIF function to count the number of houses in the   city of Alpine. Use mixed references for the range; and use a relative   reference to cell A2. Copy the function and use the Paste Formulas option to   paste the function in the range C:C5 so that the border in cell C5 is   preserved.

 

You want to calculate   the total commissions for each agent (the condition).
 

  In cell B7, insert the SUMIF function to total the commissions by agent. Use   mixed references for the ranges; and use a relative reference to cell A7.   Copy the function and use the Paste Formulas option to paste the function in   the range B8:B9 so that the borders are preserved.

 

The top-middle   section of the spreadsheet is designed for summary statistics for multiple   conditions. You will calculate the number of houses sold for each agent when   he or she served as a Dual Agent (DA). Use mixed references for ranges and   the agent code condition in cell J. Use relative cell references to the   agent condition in cell E2. When you copy the formulas, use the paste   Formulas options to preserve border formatting.
 

  In cell F2, insert the COUNTIFS function in cell F2 to count the number of   houses sold by the first agent (cell E2) who was a Dual Agent (DA) (J) for   that house. Use all cell references in the function. Copy the function to the   range F:F4 and preserve the bottom border for cell F4.

 

You are ready to   calculate the total value of those houses for each agent when he or she   served as a Dual Agent (DA). Use mixed references for ranges and the agent   code condition in cell J. Use relative cell references to the agent   condition in cell E2. When you copy the formulas, use the paste Formulas   options to preserve border formatting.
 

  In cell G2, insert the SUMIFS function to sum the selling prices of the   houses sold by the first agent (cell E2) who was a Dual Agent (DA) (J) for   that house. Copy the function to the range G:G4 and preserve the bottom   border for cell G4.

 

Now, you will   calculate the highest-price house highest-price house sold for each agent   when he or she served as a Dual Agent (DA). Use mixed references for ranges   and the agent code condition in cell J. Use relative cell references to the   agent condition in cell E2. When you copy the formulas, use the paste   Formulas options to preserve border formatting.
 

  In cell H2, insert the MAXIFS function in cell H2 to display the highest-price   house sold by the first agent (cell E2) who was a Dual Agent (DA) (J) for   that house. Copy the function to the range H:H4 and preserve the borders in   the range H:H4.

 

The Map worksheet   contains a list of cities, postal codes, and average house sales. You will   insert a map chart to depict the averages visually using the default gradient   fill colors.
 

  Display the Map worksheet, select the range B1:C5 and insert a map chart.

 

Cut the map chart and   paste it in cell A7. Set a 2.1" height and .62" width.

 

You want to enter a   meaningful title for the map.
 

  Change the map title to Average Selling Price by Zip Code.

 

Display the Format   Data Series task pane, select the option to display only regions with data,   and show all labels. Close the task pane.

 

You are ready to   start completing the loan amortization table.
 

  Display the Loan worksheet. In cell B8, type a reference formula to cell B1.   The balance before the first payment is identical to the loan amount. Do not   type the value; use the cell reference instead. In cell B9, subtract the   principal from the beginning balance on the previous row. Copy the formula to   the range B10:B19.

 

Now, you will   calculate the interest for the first payment.
 

  In cell C8, calculate the interest for the first payment using the IPMT   function. Copy the function to the range C9:C19.

 

Next, you will   calculate the principal paid.
 

  In cell D8, calculate the principal paid for the first payment using the PPMT   function. Copy the
  function to the range D9:D19.

 

Rows 21-2 contain a   summary section for cumulative totals after the first year.
 

  In cell B22, insert the CUMIPMT function that calculates the cumulative   interest after the first year. Use references to cells A8 and A19 for the   period arguments.

 

The next summary   statistic will calculate the principal paid after the first year.
 

  In cell B2, insert the CUMPRINC function that calculates the cumulative   principal paid after the first year. Use references to cells A8 and A19 for   the period arguments.

 

Rows 25-28 contain a   section for what-if analysis.
 

  In cell B27, use the RATE financial function to calculate the periodic rate   using $1,400 as the
  monthly payment (cell B26), the NPER, and loan amount in the original input   section.

 

In cell B28,   calculate the APR by multiplying the monthly rate (cell B27) by 12.

 

Create a footer with   your name on the left side, the sheet name code in the center, and the file   name code on the right side of each worksheet.
