NEW: Article on Break-even Ratio

A new article to help real estate investors and agents understand the Break-even Ratio has been posted on the ProAPOD website entitled “How to Compute Your Investment Property’s Break-Even Ratio”.

The article explains the meaning of the ratio, why lenders use it when they are considering to underwrite a loan for rental income property, and the formula. Here’s an excerpt:

“Anyone who has been around real estate investing for any length of time is undoubtedly familiar with the term, Break-even Ratio, yet may not have a clue what is and why it’s used. So it seemed like a good idea to explain it.

Break-Even Ratio (or BER) is commonly used by lenders when they’re considering to underwrite a loan…”

The ProAPOD Website Has Been Redesigned to Improve Reader Comprehension

My ProAPOD real estate investment software website has been redesigned to make it easier for new visitors to more clearly comprehend the benefits of my software and generally to more easily navigate through its various pages.

Here’s a sampling of the changes I made.

  • The header. I eliminated the large image of the apartment building with the text that read “Invest with confidence with our award winning real estate investment software” and replaced it with a black banner and a larger label that simply reads “ProAPOD Real Estate Investment Software” (similar to this blog site).
  • The font. I changed the font style and size to make the text more interesting and easier to read.
  • The wording. The descriptions for each of the three solutions were rewritten to make it clearer to the reader what that solution does. Most paragraphs were shortened and made more concise.
  • Images. An “information” image was added to the Learning Center as well as the other pages that primarily provide helpful information to the visitor such as my real estate investing articles and videos, online real estate calculators, glossary of terms, and industry links.

The ProAPOD Website is Now Secure Per PayPal Requirements

ProAPOD Real Estate Investment Software replaced it’s previous shopping cart and added an SSL certificate to its site last week for added customer security.

That means that customers will always enter a secure site (i.e., “https”) when they set up their customer account information and then subsequently preview their shopping cart. Payment afterward is made at PayPal which, of course, has always been a secure website.

The change was a requirement made by PayPal. Several months ago they advised me that the website would have to be made secure by mid-September 2016 or I could no longer use their services to complete the sale of my software and calculator products. This, of course, made it mandatory for me to do whatever was required in order to satisfy PayPal.

As a result, the ProAPOD.com domain was moved to another server capable of handling the necessary modifications and additional SSL certificate. The project took several weeks and several hundred dollars but the result has been achieved. My ProAPOD website offers customers a more secure site to enter their names and address; all of their financial data will continue to be entered only on the PayPal site.
