Borrow Money Archives

QUESTION from Stacey
(italicized green are Mike's comments)
Hi Mike,
I've watched every video that I have access to, but I am still unclear on how to put in my private loan balances. 
For example, I purchased a property last year. 
I borrowed money from a private lender, (and deposited this money PRIOR to closing) put that in my (Operating Bank Checking Account) account and then paid (took a check) cash at closing. 
Stacey is describing how to pay cash at closing when buying a property when using a private lender who funded this purchase without it showing on a closing statement.
I entered the closing statement as (starting with) a check.
Where do I enter the $50,000 loan I'm paying on every month? (I memorized a check I can send every month, but I don't know where to put the balance of the loan.)
Watch this short 20 min video I prepared for you Stacey
- Let me show you how to enter all of this in a few simple steps --- it really is brain-dead simple when you use the Post Office Method of Accounting as your foundation
If I could have help with one of these properties, 
then I am hopeful  I could input the rest of them correctly. 
Please advise! Thanks!

Here's my question....

I have heard you say you don't bother with the Owner Equity account cause you let your CPA deal with that.

Mike, I get where the loan comes from and how to enter the asset and all that. I did all that fine. I was curious how to get my loan money into quick books and zeroed back out at the end again.

Do I deposit the money from my hard money lender into my checking account then write a check for the purchase out of there?

That's what I did.

Then how do I zero out the loan on my closing statement when I'm done.

I can't get it to zero out under the loan on my chart of accounts.

Doni do it as COG and that's it? I did that but couldn't figure out how to get the loan to zero out under my loan in the chart of accounts. I get the whole post office thing big guy.

Let's keep it very simple/

Every closing - buying, selling, trading, lending has a closing statement or a settlement statement explaining all of the details of this particular real estate transaction.

Most settlement statements have a dollar amount...
