A good Capitalization Rate for Long Island would be 8.5% to 9%
Your NOI should be adjustable upwards without too much difficulty
with existing renters

A good cap rate depends upon what the buyer has to invest in the property, whether he is in an acquisition or holding phase and the tenant profile plus vacancy factor in the building. If you can improve the market rents you will raise your NOI and your cap. The lower the cap, generally the more deposit is required. a Good average rule of thumb is to go for 8.5% to 9% though a lower cap rate should not dissuade you from investigating the property further.

It really depends where it is, the strength of the tenancy and the upside potential. I have alot of experience in the NYC metro market. Give me a call 212-244-4242. Best of luck.

A 9% cap would be fair.
