Advanced Investing: Understanding Cap Rates
In Commercial Real Estate, one of the most commonly used terms is that of a Cap Rate. It alludes to a return generated by a Commercial Property, and is widely used to calculate its return. It is absolutely essential for investors to understand the concept of Cap Rates, to understand for themselves how Real Estate asset managers deliver rental income through property management, and more importantly, how Cap Rates affect a property’s value at acquisition and disposal.
What is a Cap Rate?
A Cap Rate is one of the most simple and reliable ways to check income potential of a property. In simple terms, it is an equation which shows how much an investor stands to make or lose from the asset in question.
Why is it important?
A Cap Rate is important when deciding whether or not to invest in an income generating property. It helps determine the net operating income (NOI) of the property and its relationship to the price of the asset. In simple terms, a Cap Rate determines how good the returns are and if the property is valued appropriately.
The Cap Rate method can be used to evaluate the following types of real estate:
- Multifamily residential real estate
- Commercial real estate
- Industrial real estate
