While each investor, user, buyer or seller’s individual objectives must drive real estate decisions; I feel it is appropriate to rate asset classes of real estate relative to overall opportunity in general from Strongest to Weakest (10 representing the strongest):

 

7.0 – Apartments  (Cap 5.9%)

5.7 – Industrial (Cap 7.2%)

5.6 – Hotels (6.6%)

5.3 – Retail (Cap 7.4%)

5.5 – Office (Cap 6.1%)
