QUESTION:

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?

Thanks,

Joseph

Absolutely Joseph!

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,

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.
Sure

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.
BINGO!!

 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…

Thank you sir.

Question:

Another question Mike.

I bought an REO last Aug. from the bank with a hard money loan.

I tried to go in and enter all my receipts this year and show the purchase process and all that for this years taxes, as I sold it this year in April.

I got it all fouled up as how to show the purchase with my Hard money Lender funding the Cash purchase from the bank.

Then I fouled it up even more trying to zero out the loan after a Sold it.

I don’t know if I’m over thinking the whole process of making a Cash Purchase from the bank with a Loan from my private lender.

I use 12% interest only loans for 6 months.

I’ve watched all the videos with my wife repeatedly and I’m just fouling it up.

Please help! thanks,

K.W.

QUESTION:

Hi Mike,

I have a question regarding entering the HUD info into QuickBooks for a newly purchased property. I’ve watched your videos on the subject and they were extremely helpful-Thank you, but i can’t seem to figure out the answer to the following question.

What do you do with the expenses relating to the purchase of the property that happen outside of the HUD.  For example… The inspection costs, the Hard Money appraisal that I paid for, and even a foundation repair that was paid for outside of the Hard Money loan Holdback but happened during the rehabbing of the property. It seems these are technically part of the cost of the Asset and should be applied to the real estate asset account.

Should those be entered as part of the asset account or should they be applied to other accounts such as a repair account?

Also, I would love to see you do a video showing the process of going from a Hard Money loan to Refinancing out of that loan and what that process would be like. This is essential what I’m trying to figure out with my questions above.

Thank you Mike,

Bryan T.
