Salem, OR (PRWEB) March 23, 2011
ProAPOD, a popular provider of real estate investment software solutions since 2000, announced this week the development of a unique real estate calculator that should be of great interest to brokers, agents, investors, educators, and students.
Similar to a hand-held financial calculator, this program solves for dozens of time value, cash flow, tax shelter, amortization, and investment real estate returns, but with less effort. Plus, it includes the meanings and formulas for the calculations, thus providing an excellent and proven way to learn and teach the returns related to real estate investment.
This calculator is 100% web based and requires only a simple login on a PC, MAC, or other device that connects to the web. And though very much in the quality tradition of the earlier (software) version calculator that ProAPOD put into the Corporate Finance classroom at Southwestern College Kansas, this new online real estate calculator requires no initial downloads, no third-party software, and provides users with mobile online access 24/7.
"The idea for this instructive calculator actually originated following the success we had with the students at Southwestern College Kansas," ProAPOD owner James Kobzeff says. "Students were so glad to make the calculations needed in the classroom on a lap top rather than with a hand held calculator, I decided to put the program online and kick it up a notch with additional functions and features."
According to Kobzeff, this online real estate calculator is a virtual bundle of calculators organized by category as follows: Amortization, Tax Shelter, Cash Flows, and Investment. A category selection each opens an array of calculators assigned to that category which in turn each open the appropriate form to make the computation.
A sampling of the various types of computations made by this calculator include: Present and future values, internal rate of return, net present value, depreciation allowance (both mid-term and annual), taxable income, cash flow (before and after tax), return on equity, cap rate, cash-on-cash return, sale proceeds (before and after tax), as well as various types of mortgage payment solutions (including an amortization table).
Kobzeff also points out two computations included in this online calculator that might be of particular interest to some users: the Financial Management Rate of Return (FMRR) and Accumulation of Wealth (AoW) suggested by the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Institute, as well a rate of return calculation that targets those who fix and flip properties. "My commitment is to provide a truly special tool," says Kobzeff.
