The above information only proves that you are borrowing money at a rate lower than the return on the property, called positive leverage. Generally buying positive leverage is good, yet location, location, location and comparative yields in that location will define a good deal

If you can find ANYTHING in this market that will return more than 7.5% on you money then make that deal. You need to take an economics class so that you understand what these basic terms mean.

Not enough information to make an informed decision. These rates are basically the "curb appeal" of a potential investment. You need to do considerably more homework.
On a macro level the 7.5% cap and 11.8% Cash on cash are not bad, but you can do better depending on market and property type.
