Share A lot of times you will hear people talk about CAP rates in commercial lending. When I first started doing commercial, I didn’t understand it and asked a bunch of lender reps. Very few lender reps even understood it. They just had a basic idea. But I assure you, underwriters know about CAP rates — and if you want to close a lot of commercial loans, you better know about it as well.
