I added a powerful spreadsheet for calculating and generating invoices for the Ratio Utility Billing System (RUBS). There are 2 video tutorials showing how to use the spreadsheet and how to generate the mail merge templates. The spreadsheet supports unlimited number of residents, you can bill pro-rated for electric, gas, water, sewer, or any combination […]
I just uploaded a major update to my course “Introduction to Income Valuation and Syndication” (at http://bit.ly/itivas-1) that updates the ProFormaStabilized.xlsm spreadsheet and a new video tutorial for generating a PDF finance package. You can watch the YouTube version of the video by clicking here.
The course is updated with more improvements for the MasterLeaseAndOption.xlsm and for the ProFormaStabilized.xlsm spreadsheets. A new video tutorial is added for demonstrating how to perform “what if” calculations on actual operating data. Check out the course by clicking here. You can review the product update history by clicking here. Thank you for your support!
A quick note that I just updated the ProFormaStabilized.xlsm spreadsheet to include an “actual data” input column and a “Seek Actual” button. The button calculates the required gross Return on Equity (ROE) and net cash flow required for the specified actual operating data. Now you can use the spreadsheet to calculate a required Capitalization rate […]

There are very few listed houses, multiple offers, bidding wars, double digit price inflation, and listed houses are on the market for a very […]

It is called (drum roll, please): “How to Pyramid Your Equity to Create Wealth and Financial Freedom” It’s a thick, jam-packed (over 100 pages) special report PDF with forms and spreadsheets. It explains several ways of creating or leveraging equity so that you can, with very diligent […]
I just added a free PDF special report about the infamous “Reverse Mortgage”. There are finance companies that are offering the “Reverse Mortgage” to seniors (at least age 62). Seniors with a substantial amount of equity in their residence are targets of this aggressive predatory loan. There are many “celebrities” who claim a reputation for […]
I just posted a new article on the Time Value of Money (TVM) principles for refinancing your home. I just heard some ridiculous financial advice from a “personal finance guru” regarding refinancing your home mortgage. Refinance to a lower interest rate. Refinance to a shorter amortization term (number of payments to pay off). Refinance only […]
