Buildup Rate

An alternative method for arriving at a capitalization rate for a real estate investment. The buildup rate is the sum of all risks of an investment (denoted in percentage) plus the risk-free interest rate.

For example:

Risk-Free Rate (e.g. 10-yr UST): 2.25%


 Illiquid nature of investment: 0.75%


Credit risk of tenants: 1.25%


Inflation risk: 1.00%


And so forth…


Buildup rate: 5.25%
