The same cap-rate formula can be used for estimating the value of a property based upon its NOI. As shown in the above example, if you know that the property is producing \$500,000 in NOI and the appropriate rate (i.e.., unlevered yield) for a similar project is 5% you can divide \$500,000 times 5% to get a \$10,000,000 value.
