What Is a Proforma Income Statement?

A proforma income statement is a report investors and analysts who are engaged in real estate investing commonly use for the purpose of forecasting the cash flows generated by a rental property. The concept is simple. By projecting out over some number of years the income that a rental property might likely generate, investors and analysts are able to conduct a cash flow analysis that will help them evaluate the future performance of a property during the real estate investing decision-making process.
There are no restrictions on the number of years you want the proforma income statement to project.

It’s enough to give a guy a heart attack! Sure I realize we’re in the midst of a massive recession but still I like my investments to be a little more steady and that’s why I have begun to focus on real …

The Death of Entrepreneurship?

In business, nothing matters more to me than free enterprise and the success of entrepreneurship across America. The values that entrepreneurs bring to business are what have made this country great over its 234-year history. But I’m concerned that the current business and political environment is so unfriendly to entrepreneurs that the death of entrepreneurship may be imminent.
If entrepreneurship goes down the drain, so too do millions of future jobs. It is well known that the economic recovery, as well as the economic growth of the nation over time, depends on entrepreneurial success.
Large companies do a good job of maintaining operations, combining and acquiring businesses, and stabilizing them, but they aren’t known for exceptional results in innovating and launching new enterprises. Big companies try their hand at the “start-up game,” but their risk profile and the nature of the expertise they bring to the table is frequently counter-productive …

The corridor. With the corridor plan, you have all of your essential appliances divided between two of the kitchen’s four walls. On one side, you may choose to keep your oven and refrigerator, while on the other, you place the rest. One of the key factors in …
