### Calculating Commercial Property Values1

1. 1. Calculating Commercial Property Values Crash Course In Commercial Real Estate
2. 2. Commercial real estate, pricing is determined by the income the property produces . <ul><li>Commercial Real Estate Terms </li></ul><ul><li>Example </li></ul>
3. 3. Commercial Real Estate Terms <ul><li>Gross Rent = Yearly gross rental income from all units </li></ul><ul><li>Gross Income = Gross Rent - vacancy factor + other income (for example, laundry) </li></ul><ul><li>Net Operating Income (NOI) = Gross Income - all expenses EXCEPT DEBT SERVICE! </li></ul><ul><li>Cap Rate = NOI/Sales Price </li></ul><ul><li>Cash Flow = NOI - debt service </li></ul>
4. 4. Example: Sales Price & Income Sales Price: \$90,000 Income: Gross Rent: \$400/unit * 6 units * 12 months = \$28,800 Vacancy: 10% vacancy = (\$2,880) Other Income: Laundry = \$500 ------------------------------------------------------- Total Gross Income: \$26,420
5. 5. Example: Expenses Gas = \$480 Electricity = \$300 Management = \$3,274 Taxes = \$1,160 Insurance = \$750 Water = \$2,400 Maintenance = \$3,000 ------------------------------------------------------- Total Expenses: \$11,364 (43% of Gross Income) You are in the ballpark on expenses if it's between 40-50% of gross income.
6. 6. Example: Net Operating Income (NOI) <ul><ul><li>Net Operating Income (NOI) = Gross Income - all expenses EXCEPT DEBT SERVICE! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>\$26,420 (Total Gross Income) − \$11,364 (Total Expenses ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>\$15,056 (NOI) </li></ul>
7. 7. Example: Cap Rate % Cap Rate stands for &quot;capitalization rate,&quot; and it is basically the yield on your investment if you bought a property with all cash. In this case, if I took \$90,000 of my own money and bought this property, then every year I would receive \$15,056 , which is a yield of 16.7% . Cap Rate = (NOI/Sales Price) \$15,056 (NOI) \$90,000 (Sales Price) 16.7% (Cap Rate)
8. 8. Example: Cap Rate - Conclusion The reason you can tell this is a good deal is because I can borrow most of this money at a substantially lower rate (8-10%). Basically, anything that has a cap rate in the teens is a good deal.
9. 9. Example: Cap Rate - Conclusion What you typically find is that in any one particular market, the cap rate doesn't change a whole lot. In a well established neighborhood with high demand, you'll probably be hard pressed to find a cap rate above 10% (which leaves a very thin spread when you borrow money at 8-10%).
10. 10. Example: Cap Rate - Conclusion By taking the average cap rate for a particular area, you can quickly determine the market value of a commercial property (NOI/cap rate = value). So if the property I just bought was in a place with an average cap rate of 15%, then the market value would be \$15,056/.15 = \$100,000 .
11. 11. Example: Cap Rate - Conclusion To complete the example, if the buyer borrowed \$82,500 at 12% interest for 20 years we get: Debt Service: \$908 * 12 months = \$10,896/yr (mortgage ) Cash Flow: \$15,056 - \$10,896 = \$4,160 (\$347/month).
12. 12. Example: Actual ROI • (Cash-On-Cash) One final useful calculation is the actual ROI or return on investment (usually called cash-on-cash). This is the amount of money I'm getting for my out-of-pocket expense. In this case, making a down payment of \$7,500, and receiving \$4,160 a year. This is an annual ROI of 55.5% (Notice that if one can structure a no money down deal, your ROI is infinity....
13. 13. Example: Conclusion If you continue to play with the numbers, you can see why there can be such a great difference in a cap rate of 10% and a cap rate of 15%. In this example, since borrowing money at 12% interest, any increase in cap rate above 12% means that that percentage of the purchase price goes right into my pocket. So we have: 16.7% - 12% = 4.7% , and 4.7% of the \$90,000 purchase price is \$4,230 . This is very close to the previous annual cash flow.
