Vacasa recently released its top winter rental properties after crunching the numbers on some 500,00 properties. Vacasa ranked these winter properties by respective capitalization rates or cap rates.

A cap rate is the metric used to determine a property’s profitability. The cap rate compares the property’s price to the remainder of the property’s annual rental reserve after all expenses on that property have been met. The higher the cap rate, the higher the profit and the more money for the owner. For example, if an owner took out a 30-year-fixed loan at 4.39% with a 25% down payment, the property is likely to be profitable.
