The Best Way to Make Real Estate Calculations Quickly

Salem, Oregon (PRWEB) June 19, 2017

ProAPOD, a leading provider of real estate investment software since 2000, choose to develop an entire suite of real estate calculators named iCalculator specifically so users can compute financial calculations quicker, easier, and with less effort than with a handheld calculator.

iCalculator is able to achieve this because it utterly changes the way calculations are made. A handheld calculator requires the user to depress a sequence of keystrokes, and in some cases (at least for the more complex computations), the need to follow an instruction manual. iCalculator, on the other hand, collects the data in clearly labeled forms. There are no series of keystrokes, and no need for an instruction manual…even for highly complex computations. The user merely completes the form and presses Calculate.

“It was my goal from the beginning,” says developer James Kobzeff, “to offer the same type of calculations previously possible only on the handheld financial calculators, but with the benefit that they can be made by anyone effortlessly and instantly.”
iCalculator includes sixty-two calculators organized into five categories: mortgages, time value, cash flows, tax shelter, and investment. The user merely selects a category to display the list of appropriate calculators in that category, makes a selection, completes the form, and then clicks the Calculate button for the result. There’s even a Print function if the user elects to print out a screenshot of the calculation.

But iCalculator is also designed to be a learning tool. The calculators each includes a definition of that particular calculation along with a detailed itemization that shows the user how the computation was made (and in some cases, with the formula). So the user gets the benefit of both, function as well as learning. “An exclusive to iCalculator,” Kobzeff notes.

Another feature of interest is that iCalculator is 100% web based. Therefore it requires no download or third-party software and can be accessed 24/7 from any device that has internet access (PC and MAC). Moreover, it’s fully responsive. That means it will correctly adjust to any size screen—phone, tablet, desktop—automatically. So it makes a perfect resource for users who are on the go.

“I should also point out,” Kobzeff says, “that my earlier version of iCalculator was chosen for the Corporate Finance classroom at Southwestern College Kansas in 2007 and 2008. According to the instructor, he was particularly impressed that his students could use their laptops to make time value of money calculations in an easy-to-use format. And he was clearly satisfied because he used it for two consecutive terms.”

Availability and Pricing

iCalculator retails for $79.95. However, real estate professionals and organizations, schools, educators and students can purchase it for just $29.95. The appropriate links are provided on the ProAPOD website on the iCalculator web page.

It is a one-time purchase without any annual subscription fees, and all updates and/or any additional calculators that may be added to the program in the future are free of charge. When updates are made they are processed by the developer and become available to users automatically.

Better still, iCalculator also offers a five-day 100% money back guarantee. So you can try the program risk-free. If you decide not to keep the program, simply notify the developer within five days of your purchase and you will receive a full refund, no questions asked.
You can learn more about iCalculator on the ProAPOD website including, a full list of all sixty-two real estate calculators, two sample calculation videos, and the purchasing buttons. To get started, open the ProAPOD homepage and then click the “iCalculator” link in the menu.

Calculating a Buyer’s Maximum Purchase Price

maximum-purchase-price-form

Real estate agents and buyers are often faced with the dilemma of trying to calculate the maximum purchase price a buyer can afford to pay based upon certain buyer criteria.

  1. The buyers desired cash down payment
  2. The buyers desired monthly mortgage payment
  3. The buyers anticipated mortgage rate and terms

For example, let’s say that the buyer has $10,000 cash to put down, can afford to pay $1,200 per month, and would reasonably expect a bank to quote a fully amortized thirty-year loan at 5.9% interest rate.

The solution is fairly straightforward: cash down + loan amount = the maximum purchase price.

Okay, but the challenge is being able to calculate the correct loan amount at an interest rate of 5.9% that will fully amortize at $1,200 per month (principal and interest) for 30 years.

To make it easy for you, we have included a “Maximum Price” calculator in our iCalculator program. You just enter four lines of data to get the result. (Note illustration below).
