A residential property is generally valued based on the recent sales in the area, a number of bedrooms/ bathrooms/ school districts so on, while a commercial multifamily is valued as a business, therefore the stream of revenue generated by the property is a significant factor how much a multifamily property is worth, in addition to the recent sale comparables. That’s why cash flow is crucial.
