If you’re just starting out as a real estate investor, you may have heard the term, “Gross Potential Rent.” So, what exactly is that, and how is it calculated?

Gross Potential Rent

Gross Potential Rent, also known as “GPR,” is the hypothetical amount of revenue that you could make from your apartment community, if it was fully leased all year round at market rental rates. It’s the maximum amount of revenue you could bring in from rent on your apartment complex.

Determining GPR

GPR is important, because it lets you know how profitable the property could be. It’s the most important factor when determining the value of the potential investment property.

First, you need to determine the market rent per rental apartment. A little research can get you that figure. Then, you multiply the market rent by the total number of units. So, if the market rent were $1,000 per unit and your property has 9 units, that would bring you to $9,000 monthly revenue. After that, you multiply the monthly revenue by 12 to get your annual revenue potential, or your Gross Potential Rent. So, in this scenario, your GPR would be $108,000 ($1,000 x 9 x 12).
