Gross Rent Multiplier

Gross Rent Multiplier- GRM A great tool for estimating the value of properties. The GRM can give you an idea of what the property is worth, and or the income it should be producing.

The Power of Faith

No I am not going down the God route, although that can be a GREAT one. 🙂 I am taking about Faith in your Dreams. Faith in yourself. Faith the universe is set up for you to WIN.
