What is economic rent

The term “economic rent” can be said to be synonymous with:

  1.  market rent
  2.  capitalization rate
  3.  scheduled rent
  4.  a lease

The answer is A.  Economic rent is the same thing as market rent.  Both terms refer to the rent which the market is currently charging, and that is not necessarily what the lease currently requires – because the lease can be lower, higher, or the same as the market rates.
