The discount rate for property

Jaime Sabal Cárdenas

Producció científica: Article en revista no indexadaArticle


The CAPM is not a suitable model for real estate valuation. Practitioners get around this by discounting income property free-cash flows at a yield-implied discount rate. However, this is inaccurate because it ignores that the risk implicit in non-income cash flows, such as operating expenses, maintenance and rehabilitation, are considerably lower. A method for estimating an "equilibrium discount rate" that accounts for the specific risk of each cash flow stream is proposed. Following a similar procedure, this equilibrium rate is then used to estimate a discount rate for development projects.
