Landlord’s cash flow analyzer
This investment analysis software is an affordable and easy to use real estate software cash flow tool that helps you as an investor to choose the right real estate investment properties.
Features
Determine how much rent to charge: Simply enter the market rental rate or your estimate and quickly determine if your expenses will be covered. Easily increase or decrease the rent amount to see the effects on the bottom line.
Determine the value of the property and avoid overpaying: Enter current asking price and see if the cash flow will cover the debt payments and expenses. Determine the tax benefits from depreciation. Easily adjust the property purchase price upward and downward to see the effects and determine the maximum you should pay. Enter the market capitalization rate (Cap rate) and gross rent multiplier (GRM) and determine the value of the property based on the rental income.
Goal seek and sensitivity analysis: Quickly and easily solve backwards to determine what the actual purchase price, fair market value or beginning rental income must be to attain your required rate of return!
Perform what-if calculations: Change your input over and over to see the effects on profit and investment return.
Compute federal and state income taxes: Quickly determine the tax benefits that would be generated from owing the rental property. Evaluate your rental property with or without income taxes. See the effects of your cash flow if loses are limited by the passive activity rules. Our software calculates tax depreciation for real estate and personal property. Our software is updated for the few federal capital gain tax rates that were recently enacted.
Forecast your property’s cash flow for 20 years: Evaluate your rental property’s performance over a 20 year time period. A cash flow analysis is computed for each year along with complete property sale computation. You now can easily see how your investment would do at the end of each and every projected year. These computations are summarized in an easy to read report and is graphed.
Calculate rate of return (IRR) and modified internal rate of return (MIRR) are calculated for each year of property ownership. The calculation is a function of the initial investment you make compared to the cumulative cash flow generated. Easily determine if your required return on investment would be met. The software will also automatically compute an unleveraged IRR and MIRR so that you can compare how beneficial borrowing would be for that particular investment. Simply change the amount borrowed and compare the unleveraged and leveraged IRR and MIRR results.
Allow for foreclosure and below market purchases: The cost of the property may not be the fair market value especially when you are buying properties at distressed prices. The software quickly computes the return on the spread. A great tool for property flippers! Forecast and determine the future property value by entering a projected growth rate. Determine the tax implications as cash flow from sale.
