Ask Jon to run the numbers on a $5K multiple security deposit compared to a $5K cap reduction.
Multiple security deposits get refunded to you in the end with the benefit of lowering your LMF (interest rate) and as a result lowering your monthly payment.
Cap reduction is just making lease payments in advance. No benefit in the end other than not having to pay interest on the cap reduction amount.
