  1. Leasing
    Leasing is more cost effective and offers greater operating flexibility than owning. Over 80 percent of commerical properties are leased.
  2. Compounding
    Compounding is exactly the opposite of discounting. 

    The FV is greater if compounded at 8 percent rather than 7 percent. It is also greater if it is compounded semi-annually rather than annualy. 

    The more frequent the compounding occurs and the higher the compunding percentage, the greater the FV will be.
  3. What happens to the monthly mortgage payment if you adjust the amortization period?
    By increasing the amortization period, the monthly mortgage payment will decrease. With an increase in the amortization period, there is more time to pay off the loan which results in lower monthly payments.

    A 30 year mortgage has lower payments than a 20 year mortgage.
  4. What happens when you adjust the cap rate?
    The higher the cap rate, the lower the value, and the lower the cap rate, the higher the value. 

    • The higher the cap rate, the weaker the property.
    • The lower the cap rate, the stronger the property.

    Buyers will want a higher cap rate because they will be able to purchase the property at a lower cost. 

    Sellers wants a lower cap rate because they will be able to sell their property at a higher cost.

    Essentially, High Cap Rates Drive Down Values.
