Cap Rates: What Are They & What Are They Telling Us? Webinar on March 2

Like the P/E ratio in equity investments, SPF in sunscreen and the plus-minus in hockey, the capitalization (cap) rate is both a handy short-hand and an essential measure. Cap rates are a key gauge of individual property values, as well as a valuable measure of the market as a whole.

This webinar will bring together leading commercial real estate researchers to discuss what a cap rate is, sources of cap rate data, what drives cap rates, trends across property types and markets, and an outlook for where cap rates might go from here. Understanding the ins-and-outs of cap rates–like SPF in your sunscreen–can help keep you from getting burned.
