Inflation Rate Calculator, Update 8-26-14

calc-smallThe annual inflation rate calculator included in iCalculator, the innovative online real estate calculator provided by ProAPOD, has been updated to adjust for inflation and calculate the cumulative annual inflation rate in accordance with latest US government CPI data released August 15, 2013.

This means that you can use the inflation rate calculator in iCalculator to compute annual inflation rates starting as far back as the year 1913.

Here’s one inflation rate computation I recently ran with this latest US government CPI data just for the fun of it. Warning: You might feel the need to get sick (I did).


I wanted to see what effect inflation has had on the money I spent for goods and services several years ago. So I remembered back to the $4,300 spent in 1988 to cover the costs of a family vacation. The result? In today’s dollars I would have to spend $8,490.81 to enjoy that same vacation. That’s an annual rate of inflation of 97.5%. Hey, that’s almost double the cost. Can I turn back the clock?

You can, of course, input any dollar amount you wish. It requires just three entries. A starting year (no earlier than 1913), a dollar amount, and an ending year (any year after 1913 to the present). The inflation rate calculator will give you the results with one simple click of the button.

Current users of iCalculator do not have to pay for this annual inflation rate calculator update . All updates made to this online real estate calculator are free following your purchase.

Fix ‘n Flip Calculator Updated

ProAPOD Real Estate Investment Analysis Software has updated the Fix ‘n Flip calculator provided in it’s iCalculator program — an online real estate calculator solution that enables users to learn dozens of real estate investing definitions and formulas as they calculate.

The Fix ‘n Flip calculator was originally included in the bundle of calculators offered in iCalculator to enable real estate investors a quick and easy way to derive the profit and return on investment on potential residential and commercial properties they plan to buy and sell within twelve months. In other words, after entering a few details about the property in the user-friendly form and clicking the Calculate button a real estate investor can instantly see both the profit and return on investment they might expect to receive.

It was suggested by a customer, however, that the calculator was limited to an all-cash purchase without the option to include financing. So we fixed it.

The Fix ‘n Flip calculator now includes the option for the investor to allow for financing when it is part of the property acquisition. iCalculator provides the option to select an all-interest or fully-amortized loan and makes all the appropriate interest payment and loan balances to arrive at the investor’s profit and return on investment based upon the holding period anticipated by the investor.

How do you get this updated calculator?

As a current user of iCalculator, you get this update absolutely free. The next time you login to the real estate calculator you just click Investments from the toolbar then Fix ‘n Flip from the list of calculators on the sidebar to open it.

If you are not familiar with this unique web-based real estate calculator solution, we invite you to save 64% off the retail price. To learn more about this exclusive offer and iCalculator, go to real estate calculator special offer.


PDF Printing Update Coming to ProAPOD

ProAPOD Real Estate Investment Software is currently in the throws of updating the PDF printing function for all three of it’s real estate investing software solutions.

Along with some with some general house keeping and refreshing of the forms and toolbar commands, the primary focus is to make PDF printing easier so users can create a PDF report with less effort.

Although ProAPOD currently provides customers a way to print their reports as a PDF, it does require the customer to install a third-party PDF software program. And though highly efficient, these third-party programs have not been particularly easy for some customers to understand and easily use.

To make PDF printing easier, ProAPOD is recoding the procedures in each of it’s real estate investment software solutions. Once completed, the user will be able to simply select the real estate analysis and marketing reports he or she wants to create as a PDF and click one button. The rest will be fully automatic. The user will find the the PDF in the location on the computer he or she saved it completely ready to be distributed.

This PDF printing update, however, will only benefit customers using Windows Vista and Excel 7 or newer. Unfortunately, older versions of Windows and Excel are not compatible with the coding required to provide this update. Customers using Windows XP, for instance, will still have to rely upon third-party PDF software.

This update should be available by the end of October barring any unsuspected issues. If you have questions, please feel free to call me so we can discuss it further.
