​Cap Rate

If you're an investor in real estate and want to know how much ROI (Return on Investment) you will get from the property you will own, then this cap rate calculator is made for you.

What is the cap rate?

The ratio between your net operating system over the property value is known as the cap rate.

Or in other words, the Cap rate is defined as the return on investment in real estate property. It portrays what you get in return on investment each year. For instance, Suppose you bought a house for $100,000 (One Hundred Thousand Dollars), and 10% is the cap rate of the property you own. It indicates that every year, you will get 10% of your original investment back, and after ten years, you will get started earning profit from the property you made.


Formula of ​Cap Rate Calculator

To get the evaluating percentage of your investment, you can use our cap rate calculator or can find it manually by using the formula listed below;

cap rate = net income / property value


Net income is equal to the revenue you're generating after excluding all expenses (if any).

Property value is the price you will get on selling the property.

To find the net income, you can use the formula listed below:

Net income = (100 - operating expenses)[%] × (100 - vacancy rate)[%] × gross income


To know about the average rate of change, you can use our Average Rate Of Change Calculator.


For a more precise understanding of the cap rate concept, let's solve an example together.

Suppose a house has a selling value equal to $200,000 (Two Hundred Thousand Dollars), and the net profit/ income you're getting from that house is $23520. Then, find the cap rate you're getting each year from this property.

Given data

Net income = $23520
Property value = $200,000

To Find

Cap rate = ?


Cap rate = net income/property value

Now by putting the values in the formula, we will get:

Cap rate = $23520 / $200000
Cap rate = 11.76%
