I just did a quick analysis of closed transactions for South Shore Chicago.
I focused on Multi-Family Apartment Buildings only.
This was for sales that took place in 2016.
About 20 transactions closed on the MLS this year.
The estimated median Cap Rate in South Shore was 10.9%
I estimated the Cap Rate by looking at the Gross Income.
I then assumed 50% expenses to get the Net Income.
I like doing this because some sellers may play with the expenses
to make them look lower than they really are.
Many feel that the 50% rule is a pretty good estimate of expenses.
Then I divided the estimated Net Income by the Selling price.
So I arrived at a median Cap Rate was 10.9%
So this should give you a good idea of where Cap Rates are in the
South Shore neighborhood.
