What is a capitalization rate?
A capitalization rate (cap rate) is a measure of the rate of return that an investor can expect to receive on a real estate investment. It is calculated by dividing the net operating income (NOI) of a property by its purchase price or current market value. For example, if a property has an NOI of $100,000 per year and is being sold for $1,000,000, the cap rate would be 10% (100,000 / 1,000,000).
Cap rates are often used to compare the profitability of different real estate investments, as well as to evaluate the potential return on investment for a particular property. A higher cap rate generally indicates a higher potential return on investment, while a lower cap rate may indicate a lower potential return or a higher level of risk. However, it is important to note that cap rates can vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including the location and condition of the property, the strength of the local real estate market, and the terms of the lease.
