Understanding and Utilizing the Time Value of Money (TVM) Concept
Time value of money is one of the fundamental concepts in real estate finance. TVM is based on the concept that a dollar that you have today is worth more than the promise or expectation that you will receive a dollar in the future. The reason for this is that money held today can earn a return through investment so that you will have more than a dollar in the future. This basic concept leads to the central components of time value—present and future value. This relationship between present and future value is why real estate investors must consider both the timing of and the amount received from real estate investments.

While financial calculators and spreadsheets can perform TVM calculations, many people fail to understand the underlying concepts. Without a basic understanding of the math, it is difficult to understand and interpret the solution provided by those tools.  And, equally important, it can be nearly impossible to recognize when the answer is wrong.
