Early on, you are best advised to become well-grounded in a number of principles, and understanding their nuances - before you go looking for short-cuts. Otherwise, you are more likely to find yourself on the fast-track to losses, rather than profits.
Here’s one resource you can play around with a bit. You’ll find some brief discussion of important metrics, including rent ratios, in the second half of the report.
Priced to Own–Probabilities Producing Profits
Some other important information you’ll want to be familiar with is related to the buying concept in use for years by experienced CREI’s… “Maximum Allowable Offer” (MAO). Use that as a search term in one of the search engines here at CREOnline (main board best), and again in the Internet (where you’ll find some helpful charts and calculation examples).
Hope that helps, and Happy Hunting!
