Investment Suitability Index

The Investment Suitability Index is the ratio of average rent prices divided by average home values in the station area. Thus, stations areas with higher average rents and lower average home values should be more suitable for investors or home purchasers looking for better investment opportunity. Different stations across the nation or even in a given region are at different stages of the investment cycle. The goal for many investors is to find deals with upside potential. Many home buyers also look at investment metrics to gauge their home purchase. Therefore, the Investment Suitability Index allows for a comparison across all station areas.
