Net Operating Income (NOI) is calculated by deducting the operating expenses and capital expenditure from Effective Gross Income (EGI). Operating expenses are equal to 40% of EGI Capital expenditure is equal to 5% of EGI Effective Gross Income (EGI) = $289,000 Operating expenses = [$289,000 40%] = $115,600 Capital expenditure = [$289,000 5%] = $14,495 Calculate Net Operating Income (NOI) for the first year of operations : Hence the NOI is $158,905.
