What is a Cap Rate?

The capitalization rate, more commonly known by its abbreviation "cap" rate, is widely used to evaluate the worth of investment properties and calculate potential returns on investment.

The cap rate reflects your investment property's rate of return as measured by the amount of income you expect the property to produce.

This measurement can be more simply described as the ratio of net operating income to property asset value.

A cap rate is generally expressed as a percentage, with a higher percentage indicating a better rate of return but also an increased level of associated risk.
