The New Landlord: Rent Metrics Rental Comps

The New Landlord:  Easy tool to value rental rates
Quick glance, free website to evaluate overall rental prices.

I discovered this awesome website, Rent Metrics, which provides free, basic rental comparable information for homes all across the United States. 

If you are an investor evaluating investment real estate properties, you will enjoy how easily it is to determine an overall rental rates for areas with three easy steps using this tool.

1.  Simply visit the Rent Metrics website http:///
2.  Type in an address
3.  Choose the number of bedrooms

Instantly, a comprehensive report generates with average estimated monthly rental rates. Rent Metrics offers several valuable metrics including:
  • Average rental rate with low and high rental ranges
  • Average price per square footage
My favorite features is the Rent Metrics map which shows detailed data including addresses and rental rates of recently rented homes and apartments in the area.

I must say, Zillow also has a feature like this, but I find the average rental rates on Rent Metrics more accurate than those posted on Zillow's Zestimate.
