I need to do a financial analysis on a lease, does anyone have an old example of net effective rent calculation?

I'm sure someone else can break it down succinctly in 2 sentences, but in case you need the granularity, this is the resource I use:

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but look at it in terms of renting an apartment. 1 year lease, rent is \$1,800/month. But say you get 1 month abatement. Normally, you would pay (1800)*(12) = \$21,600 for the year. But given the 1 month free, it's really (21,600)-(1800) = \$19,800. Over the course of the 1 year lease, you are EFFECTIVELY paying (19,800/12 months) = \$1,650/month. It's a bit misleading, but thats what it is.

I could be wrong too, but I think like thexaspect's link, he is trying use it as a tool to compare different leases using the whole NPV calc.

NER is one of those metrics that is non-standard metric. I have seen several different ways to calculate it, but at my firm we do take the PV of the total effective rents and divide by sf.

Some places won't use PV, some will, etc. etc.

I always took it as "Net Effective Rent = Contract Rent - Allowances and Tenant Concessions" but I agree with @okay24 that it's completely non-standard. When I was a leasing broker, we never discounted anything. When I worked with acquisitions, we did.

@D M - if the calculation you are doing is just free rent @PEREtzel 's calculation is your answer. If it includes other things, post them here.

This. How you're looking at it (Acq vs Sale vs Leasing) will influence how you calculate it.
