I'm in the process of buying a duplex to live in and rent out and I have no spreadsheet type software on my computer. I've heard quickbooks is good, would OpenOffice suffice? Is there anything else I should get?
I'm looking at SmartMove by Transunion for credit and BG checks and the Landlording Kit from Socrates for boilerplate.
Good luck with your endeavor.
I'm trying to find my way through the Operating Agreement for the llc right now. I feel like I'm back in school.
I checked out Bookkeeping for Dummies, LLCs for Dummies and an LLC book from NOLO.
Met with my accountant today. He advised me to modify my LLC. Wish I'd had a chance to meet with him first but I can fix it or start a new one, they're so easy and cheap. He said that Excel would be fine. Bookkeeping for such a small company isn't so scary now that I'm refreshing my memory on the stuff I learned in school.
Looking at these books too, if anyone has any input.
