Real Estate Calculator Now Computes Inflation Rate

Our ProAPOD real estate calculator has been recently updated to include a calculation for inflation rate. To start using this calculation simply login to the calculator and from the toolbar click Time Value then Inflation Rate.

Inflation is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy. When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services, and vice versa. And Inflation Rate is the annualized percentage change in a general price index (normally the Consumer Price Index) that is used to measure price inflation over time.

Our real estate calculator uses the Consumer Price Index (CPI) is published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for the computation.

Here’s an example of what you can do.

In 1972 you spent $3,000 for a two-week road trip across the United States. You are curious to know how much you would have to spend for that same trip in 2011 considering the loss of your purchasing power due to inflation. You just make three simple entries into the form and our real estate calculator shows you the amount you will have spend to duplicate that trip along with the accumulative rate of inflation from 1972 to 2011.
