In real estate, "gross" usually refers to the total amount of something, without any deductions or expenses taken out. For example, "gross income" would be the total income before any taxes or expenses are deducted.
A working example of gross might be if you're looking at a rental property and the landlord tells you the "gross rent" is $2,000 per month. This means that the renter would be paying $2,000 per month without any additional fees or expenses added.
So to sum it up, gross refers to the total amount of something, without any deductions or expenses taken out.
"Wit & Whimsy with the Dumb Ox: Unlocking Knowledge with Rhyme:"
Oh gross, oh gross, it's plain to see
The total amount, without any fee
No deductions, no expenses, just the spree
Of money, or rent, or whatever it be
When the landlord talks about the rent, you see
And says the "gross rent" is the fee
It's the total amount, without any debris
Just the amount paid, so simply!
