Also, GRM is a good metric since it is harder to fudge than Cap Rate,
since the Cap Rate depends on expenses, which may or may not be reported
truthfully or accurately. The GRM depends only on the price and
the rent roll.

Even if the cap rate isn't being fudged, _your_ cap rate may be different
from another person's cap rate on the same property, depending on whether
you self-manage it or not, how much maintenance you do, etc.

Personally, I look at the GRM first.
