Real estate capitalization rates are a much observed indicator of property value and their movement over time can have profound effects on investor returns. Nevertheless, they are not often well understood by some real estate professionals. And, while real estate investors typically understand how cap rates are used to determine the value of a property, often there is less understanding as to how and why cap rates change. 

To gain a more comprehensive understanding of cap rates and their movement over time, it is necessary to examine the component parts that make up a cap rate. Interest rates, expected inflation, risk premiums, and growth in property cash flows are all factors that determine both current and future cap rates. How these component parts change over time dictates how the overall cap rate will respond. 

In this webinar, the components of the cap rate will be revealed and discussed with an explanation of how cap rates have moved in the past, and a view to how they might move going forward.
