Rules of Thumb for Every Real Estate Investor
Those of you who follow our content at RealData.com
-- know that we stress maximizing your chances for success through
understanding the metrics of investment property.
Whether you're scrutinizing a piece of property you already
own, one you want to sell, or one you may choose to buy or develop,
you need to understand the financial dynamics that are at work.
The numbers always matter.
We have a new
article this month in the Learn
section of RealData.com that will give you a concise look at
some essential real estate investment "rules of thumb."
It is all too easy to get buried under mountains of data and
lose focus, so we hope you'll find this article to be an opportunity
to get back to basics.

Relaxes Commercial Financing Rules
Bloomberg.com recently reported that the Treasury Department
has "...adopted rules letting lenders revise commercial
real estate loans without triggering tax penalties in an effort
to stem a rise in defaults."
The rules, which went into effect September 16, would allow
some borrowers to refinance commercial loans without tax penalties.

the complete article at the Bloomberg.com.
Talkin' to Me...?
We're always looking for ways to make communication with our
customers easier, and so we've added two new features to our
web site. Scroll down to the bottom of our home page, and you'll
see two boxes on the right. On of these says "Ring Me."
If you would like to have a salesperson call you, just click
on that and leave your number.
Even better is the live chat box below. At the very bottom
is a random "guest" name, which you can replace with
your real name. Then type your message in the box directly above
and start a chat session with us.
You'll also find these on our main products page. Both features
should be available during our regular office hours, weekdays
9:30 to 5:30 ET.
up to 33% on RealData Software
Did you know that you can save a bundle on RealData software?
Many of our customers find that they can benefit from not just
one but several of our products. Perhaps they're developing
and investing in different kinds of property, and need to work
with analyses and pro formas of different kinds.
We've assembled five "bundles"
that represent the most common combinations of products purchased
by our customers, and we offer those bundles at a discount.
They begin with our entry-level Bundle
1, which contains the Ultra-Lite
version of our Real
Estate Investment Analysis, our Personal
Financial Statement software, and our e-course.
At the other end is our best value, Bundle
5, where you can buy almost everything we sell and save
a very meaningful $662.
Take advantage of this opportunity to get RealData software
at a great price.
for Beginning Investors
recently encountered a site that focuses on the beginning investor.
Rev N You
publishes a newsletter with videos, tips, resources and tools
to help new real estate investors succeed and profit from rental
property. When you sign up for the newsletter, you get a complimentary
copy of their "Real Estate Investing Starter Tips Guide."
We would like to remind you about a recent addition to realdata.com,
RealData Bookstore. This is not an automated list of best-sellers,
but rather a collection of titles that we have hand-picked.
We've included some classics that real estate investors have
relied on for years, and also suggested some newer titles that
we feel merit your attention.
We hope you'll take
a look -- and that you'll send us your recommendations for
new titles to add to our list.
