We are creating a investment syndication for buying and working out non-performing mortgages in an LLC entity.

Each member will require a capital account for their investment dollars and be able to receive pro-rata shares of profits, return of capital and losses (if any).

Will the Investor Books software support the bookkeeping for the syndication?




Absolutely Joseph!

Stephen asks:

“Mike, I am selling a property for $123,000 and unfortunately I have to bring a check for $3,000+ to the closing.

I am pulling my hair out trying to enter this HUD 1 Settlement Statement into Investor Books. Please Help Me, Stephen”



Great question Stephen. You are not the only one who finds this a little different and challenging.

Here are two videos to show you how to do it simple and easy.

– the first is 7 minutes

– the second is 15 minutes

Remember, it does not matter if you are buying or selling.
– If you bring money to closing, you start with a check.
– If you leave the closing with a check, you begin with a deposit.

Question from Kyle:

Hi Mike,

Love the software still and have a unique question.
I just purchased 3 properties from the same seller and we did it all on one HUD. I know I need to enter the HUD exactly as I received it, but the question is I need to separate the properties because we are going to be selling them separately and splitting the profit on each one.
Should I just enter the HUD as it is, then make separate accounts for each properties so they show up separately for when we sell them and have to enter a selling HUD?
Obviously the HUD we used to purchase the 3 properties will have a big balance on it even after we sell 1 property. It seems it may be tricky to balance this all out.
Hope I confused you with this. Thanks.
Kind Regards,

Kyle J. Weimer

Answer from Mike Butler:
Great Question Kyle!  Long time, no talk…
check out this 9 minute How To Video Helper I made just for you wild man and because of you, now everyone gets to see how to do this the simple way.

Hi Mike,

Hope you had a nice Christmas.

Two quick questions.

1) Loans – Land Contract. (Contract for Deed)

Which accounts are used?

I created a new item (Loan Payment under Other Charge) and (Account   Uncategorized Income)  or  do I just use Rent like we do for tenants.

2) Statements Email & Print

Most of my tenants have a email, but several do not. 

When I try to email all statements it will not allow me to go forward without having all of them with a email.

If you have to do it separately what is your procedure?

I sure want to save the postage.

Question from Stephen:   (mike’s reply in blue)

Hi Mike, I am putting together some cheat sheets to use when entering HUD1’s. I would like to forward them to you when finished for your opinion.

One thing I finally grasped is that you don’t enter a hud1 the same way, it depends on whether you are bringing a check to settlement or taking money home from settlement.

 If you are bringing a check the the mortgage is a negative, but if you are bringing home money the mortgage is a positive. And all other items are reversed whether it’s a check or a deposit. Is that correct?

i am clueless on negative and positive, however, Please think about what you will be doing as an investor, let’s keep it “brain-dead simple” makes it harder to screw up….

it does NOT matter if you are buying, selling, or trading…
