Capitalization rate used to convert the expected income derived from a property into its estimated asset value. The estimated asset value may be computed by dividing the annual income generated by a property by its capitalization rate. The capitalization rate that is used is generally viewed as having two components: rate of return on investment and straight-line recapture rate that represents the percentage of cost that the investors believes that he or she must recover each year in order to recoup the entire cost of the asset over its useful life. For example, an investor decides that the capitalization rate for a particular piece of real estate is 15% consisting of a rate of return of 12% on his investment and a 3% straight-line recapture rate.
