It is a known fact that CAP rates have been rising all over the US. However, many people believe that utilizing a blanket cap rate for all property types is hurting the market.
Nationwide properties are losing their values, but there are several property types that have been performing fairly well. If you’re an investor, don’t simply believe that a properties lower CAP rate is to good to be true.
Here is an example utilizing two fast food (franchise) restaurants located in the same city/market. The market should be open to the possibility that one location could perform better than the other. One location could have a lower cap rate based on their current profit and loss statements.
There are numerous factors that are calculated into these valuations. One of the most important is the location of the property. If there is one property in a high traffic and densely populated area and a second property in a lower traffic area, causing lower sales, how can the same CAP rate be justified for both the properties?
Even within the same city a property can be worth a lot more if there is a lot of traffic that can help increase sales for that particular restaurant. A property’s surrounding area should be taken into account when it is being valued, rather than using a blanket CAP rate. Just a little something to think about!
