Gross Rent Multiplier or "GRM" is the ratio of the price of a real estate investment to its annual rental income before expenses:
Gross Rent Multiplier (GRM) = Sale Price / Potential Gross Income
The GRM is useful for comparing and selecting investment properties where operating costs can be expected to be uniform across properties. In this case, a property value may be estimated using the following related formula:
Sale Price = Gross Rent Multiplier x Potential Gross Income
It is important to beware of the limitations of the gross rent multiplier. For some properties, gross rents may include funds that a landlord must spend on utilities, while the tenants of other buildings may pay for utilities themselves. Various property-specific items are not captured when using the GRM. If one property has higher taxes or higher vacancy than the next, then using the GRM to calculate values will be deceiving.
The common measure of rental real estate value based on net return rather than gross rental income is the Capitalization Rate or Cap Rate. In contrast to the GRM, the Cap Rate is not a multiplier but a rate of annual return. A similar multiplier to the GRM derived from net return would be the multiplicative inverse of the Cap Rate.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
