Better Real Estate Investment Decisions




Getting started with our powerful ANALYZER tool

"What If?" Analysis

The SMART Opportunity Analyzer©, a sophisticated but easy-to-use information analysis tool.

It shows you all of the default parameters and calculations that go into generating the Cash Flow, GRM, 10 Year Net Equity Gain, ROI and Doubling Year numbers that are so valuable to better investment decision making.

You can change any parameter, and it will recalculate for you. For example, try lowering the Price or raising the Rents, and watch the GRM and Cash Flow automatically improve:

SMART Information In Action


While Gross Rent Multiplier (GRM) is a quick indicator of the rent's leverage on the price of a property, we dig deeper into the analytics with our easy property evaluation tool, the SMARTiScore©.

The SMARTiScore is a composite of scoring factors allowing for quick, clear evaluation of properties. One point is given for each of the following calculated factors:

  1. Rents better than Market
  2. Positive Cash Flow
  3. Cash Flow above $500/month
  4. Gross Rent Multiplier (GRM) less than 16.5 (typical break even point)
  5. Gross Rent Multiplier better than Average for Area
  6. 10 Year Net Equity Gain over $200,000
  7. 10 Year Net Equity Gain over $500,000
  8. 10 Year ROI better than 100%
  9. 10 Year ROI better than 200%
  10. Doubling Year under 8

You can see the SMARTiScore in action by clicking on the SMART Opportunity Analyzer© image to the left.
