Cap Rate

A rate of return on a real estate investment property based on the expected income that the property will generate. Capitalization rate is used to estimate the investor’s potential return on his or her investment. This is done by dividing the income the property will generate (after fixed costs and variable costs) by the total value of the property. If you want to get technical, it is basically the discount Central Business District- the center or core downtown area where many different types of major uses are concentrated such as retail, office, and/or residential.
