(Taxes are just under $4000, Insurance was estimated at $3000 Utilities and Misc estimated at $3000). To learn more about NOI click here or Cap Rate here.

This is a superior location close to the park, BJC, Metrolink, universities and all the amenities of the CWE. Seemingly you would have your choice of tenants. But a cap rate of 2% is terrible. Things to help ensure a better cap rate would be a lower sale price, a higher down payment or a better interest rate.
