samco Don't be tricked by the first part of the question.
copus The first part of the question is COMPLETELY irrelevant!
Mikehuynh That how the question may trap us.
shumwaya think of the Cap Rate as the % of the total investment (price of bldg) you receive in the first year of ownership.

so you receive 12% of your total investment (195,000) back in the 1st year aka 195,000*.12 = 23,400
