Business Models

The general purpose of a business model is to understand, describe, and predict the value created by the buying and selling of goods and services in the marketplace. In other words, a company's blueprint to earn money. A multitude of internal and external factors influence managements' assumptions about the appropriate infrastructure, partnerships, distributions channels, and other core competencies. In the end, all of these elements must be properly reflected in the cash flow forecast.

John Franklin, an astute real estate investor, believes the downturn in the residential market will continue through the end of 2010. To capitalize on this trend, he wants to raise a $5-million fund that will invest in small multi-unit properties. Because of his connections with local banks he plans to acquire foreclosed, distressed buildings at 70% of the full market value. John assumes the market will make a dramatic rebound from 2012-to-2014 with the upswing in the US economy, thus the fund will purchase one building every six months for the next three years and liquidate all holdings at the end of 2014.
