You may have noticed i have been calculating the figures to forum posts and showing them to members. I have been testing my online calculator. And i finally seem to have got it sorted out.

I’m now officially letting people know where they can use this calculator themselves, if you want to analyse deals. You can put in whatever amount in the input boxes and see what difference the outcomes are.

It’s very simple and user friendly to use. The calculator can be found here.

I hope you find the calc helpful. It has helped me a lot in learning the figures and all the best i can do is share it. It gives you something to have quick access, and do calculations on the fly. Which was the purpose for developing the program ie so i could drop into internet cafe’s in towns i was in and do numbers on a deal.

Now a bit [offtopic], i have been having a play, I’ve come up with this as being the type of criteria i want my first investment. I’m think it will be hard to find but if i look long and hard enough i hope to fit this investment criteria the same as the below example results. I want to at least find a house that will yield \$30 CF+ a week, i can also make use of the FHOG for the first property!

Hi,
Thanks for the info. That’s news to me. It’s working alright from here. I wander if everyone else is the same.

Do you have the latest flash player? If not it’s a small download at macromedia. You will need the player version 7. you may have an older version of the player instaled in your computer.

A dropdown menu should appear and from there you can go into Analysis Calculator!

You might be refering to the white space , there is lot’s of white space around, i havent thought of anything else to put into the site yet .

No worries, thanks people. I just added a copy & paste function so that you can copy the results into the propertyinvesting forum and or copy and paste and save it into a notepad file.

My poor old servers have been hit hard this month. I never had so many visitors. I blew away the bandwidth limit, i don’t know what will happen, will probably get a bill from the host providers.

My first IP which I have had for two years now has even now after two interest rate rises a PC of \$53.00 a week. I have been lucky enough to have it rented thus far for every day I have owned it.

One a year is my plan!!

Best thing is it’s working at the moment. Once I re-establish myself after moving I will make the next transaction.

Nice work Jaffasoft. Can you please make just one small cosmetic change though – correct the spelling of morgage to mortgage. Also, within this forum, can somebody please explain the meaning of the line in step one “price range we can afford”. Sorry if this is a silly question.

Thanks, l like fixing problems! I changed the morgage too mortgage.

“Price range we can efford”, it’s not a silly question, it’s not the best description text i put in there. Looking forward to hearing a better description.

It’s no different to the 11 second solution outcome. Because were from the bush and were a bit slower i’ve just changed it to five minute online solution []. Looking forward too hearing how you change it!

Jaffasoft,

Dom,

There hasn’t been any Interest Only in the calculator.

I have implemented it. I interpreted your post as being a requested thing that you need.

You can change the loan from Principle & Interest too Interest Only…NOW….in the loan calculator section!

Thanks!

I know they factor in vacancy rate, but what if you have none, at least for three years…doesnt let you do less than 1 week.

Cheers thanks!

No worries, Elves.

I will let you know a little secret. You can press on the very top button in the menu(s) and it will put 100% in there for you. I will edit that and make it more obvious.

So you just press on the ‘Weeks Vacant’, the weeks vacant button usually drops down a menu, you can press on the very top button of that menu. Which effectively will be 100% occupancy rate.

You can manually input any relevant figure in the boxes that are input text fields! If you Tab it will tab thru all the input fields (Tab is the tab key on your keyboard!). The menu is there for the convenience, as going thru.

I have just changed the colour so that you know what colour the input text fields are!

Help!!! As you’ve probably already gathered by my choosen user name I’m new to the forum & like hundreds of others I’ve recently read ‘0 to 130 properties in 3.5 years’which brings me to this forum.
Although I’m not exactly new to the owning of investment property(yes singular),my one (so far)& only experience like many other disillusioned negatively geared investors was not great , I’d like to investigate positivly geared investment.

Thanks to your generousity in the sharing of information your calculator is of great interest to me as it will enable me to fast-track my investigations as to the validity of the asumptions made in ‘the book’.

As I’m not one to rush in blindly to seemingly new investment strategies I still have alot of work ahead of me.

I tryed to access your calculator but when I click on it a warning comes up on my pc.’Certficate unverified ‘along with a more detailed explanation …..

As I’m not the most computor literate person in the world I was wondering if you could tell me how to rectify this?

As this is only one of many many hurtles minor & major to overcome on my way to fiancial freedom for my family, I look forward to your reply .

Matt

ps.go easy on me Im new at this type of comunication so I’m not sure how I come accross,hopfully not a complete nut-case.
pps.”only time will tell”
