Our Property Investment Analysis (PIA) program is an essential decision tool for investors. It will analyse the capital growth, cash flows, and tax implications for any investment property and provide instant feedback on the projected after-tax cost and rate of return. The software will compute cash flow projections for up to 40 years and has facilities for changing more than 100 variables including property price, rent, capital growth, inflation, deposit, loan type, etc. The internal rate of return (IRR) and the cost-per-week are recalculated automatically whenever a change is made. A User's Guide containing a tutorial and worked examples is available for downloading from the web site.
The software is available in two versions to run on Windows (Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Win 7, 8). In terms of analytical functions, report options and graphical displays, the two personal computer versions are almost identical. The differences relate to their intended use: one is designed for personal use while the other is designed for professional use.
PIA Investor – PIAFpu (Fpu = For personal use) – This version of the program is designed specifically for investors and comes as software only, has a single-user license, and is restricted to personal use.
PIA Professional – PIAPro (Pro = Professional) – This version is designed for industry professionals who want to use PIA to help investors understand all the benefits and implications of investing in property. This version has all the analytical features of the PIA Investor plus additional client-related features (e.g. client detail fields and professional disclaimers in any generated reports). The professional package also includes a site license for the software and complimentary copies of two of our books More Wealth from Residential Property and Building Wealth Story by Story.
