When does it make sense to use the capital extraction method to value commercial real estate as opposed to using the capitalization rate?
The capitalization rate method only takes a look at value at a specific point in time. A better measure is a discounted cash flow method, which takes into account the future cash flows, discounted, but it has the risk in making assumptions about an anticipated growth rate.+3 Members Answered

What does it mean be “Verified”?The China Investor verifies professional members before listing them in our directory. Not all professionals pass the verification process, and we are not paid by members in any way for verified badges. The entire verification process is performed by The China Investor staff members based in Irvine, California.
We perform a background check on the member by using BeenVerified.com’s online background check tool. The BeenVerified.com criminal background database is compiled by pulling together public records. Misconduct, such as a criminal record, disqualifies the applicant from obtaining verification and being visible on our directory. Our staff members further check to ensure that each attorney who practices law in the United States is in good standing with the Bar of the state that he or she represents to us as being a state in which he or she is licensed to practice law in, at the time of verification.
Verification does not mean or represent that the professional has experience or specializes in all practice areas listed in the professional profile. Please consult the individual attorney’s State Bar website or alternate government operated websites for more information regarding a particular professional.
