The Cap Rate Report: expert insight into the commercial property investment market in Atlantic Canada. This is an updated version of our earlier June 2020 issue and does not include the impact of Covid19. Although our June Cap Rate Report shows the High and Low capitalisation rates, they are based on one Standard Deviation either side of the Average (Mean). Approximately 68% of property transactions should fall within this range. However since the Mean (Average) Capitalisation Rate is tied to actual transactions, it reflects the quality, size and age of properties typically sold in the geographic area identified in the survey. For example, Low Rise Apartment Buildings, located in Fredericton, are generally older stock, so the Mean Capitalisation Rate primarily reflects transactions involving this type of property. Properties with buildings which are ten years or less in age are frequently outliers because the average building stock is older. In order to properly reflect these outliers for apartment buildings we have “broken out” Capitalisation Rates for sales comprising buildings that are ten years or less in age, where sales data is available.
