Meet Anthony Chara at http://www.successinsiders.com/ where you can log into the site and ask him questions about investing.

In a recent interview with Lance Hood of Success Insiders, Anthony explained the importance of understanding capitalization rate, or cap rate, for short. Cap rate is a formula used to calculate income being generated from property when it is acquired by paying with all cash. Positive and negative leverage is also connected with cap rate, which varies from state to state. Anthony went on to explain the importance of studying and analyzing each property before buying, to be sure the deal will be profitable.
The process of analyzing begins by learning about the âcash on cash return.â The âcash on cashâ return is how much out of pocket money it takes to actually purchase the property, and the cash amount that is returned at the end of the year after all expenses and the debt services have been paid. Without special software available today, it would take weeks to analyze the numbers, including taxes, insurance, utilities, management fees, maintenance and rehab amounts needed. These numbers are used in determining the amount to offer when buying the property. Of course, market rents must cover these costs, plus a profit, for the deal to be worth pursuing.
Anthony Chara owns properties in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Tennessee. Current projects include pre-construction and commercial land developments in Florida, apartment buildings in the mid-west, and several multi-million dollar condo conversions in Arizona.
