| What is a Cap Rate? | 

A metric used to gauge the approximate risk and rate of return on an income-producing asset, assuming the investor paid cash.  A cap rate is expressed as a percentage and derived by dividing the Net Operating Income (NOI) by the sales price or current market value.

Uncertainty can cultivate an influx of emotion and different states of being. It can often feel as if we are caught in the undertow of life, unable to decipher which direction is up. During that
