Rental Property Calculator Suggestion

4 Replies

Just a thought because I am in the process of doing this on a deal, but would it be possible to add a "Seller Concession Percentage" line somewhere in the Rental Property Calculator?

I'm buying a house with a price of $174,000, but I'm using a 6% seller concession so really my purchase price is $184,400, and my "Cash Needed" will be off at the final calculation because I'll be receiving that 6% back from the seller to offset my closing costs.  Of course I can account for this on my own by not entering an amount for closing costs, but I think it could be a handy feature.  Not to mention seller concessions can be a great tool for someone just getting started who doesn't have the down payment AND closing costs; I bet a lot of new investors don't even know about it.

@Mindy Jensen maybe you can direct this to the right person, I wasn't sure if there was any sort of official BP suggestion box!

Thanks for the suggestion, @Mark Smith . I'll share this with our developers.
