Calculator Mathematics for the Real Estate Professional has two objectives: 1) to
show you how to correctly answer the mathematics questions on a real estate
licensing examination for salespersons
or brokers; 2) to be a time-saving reference
for real estate professionals, investors, tenants, accountants, lenders, and attor-
neys.
Even those who are capable of performing complex mathematical com-
putations will welcome the practicality of having the formulas and methods con-
tained in one easy-to—use reference and will benefit from the short-cut, time—saving
techniques described, including—how to determine in seconds (without handbooks
or tables) the monthly payment on a mortgage loan, the outstanding loan bal-
ance at any particular point in time, or the interest portion of mortgage payments for
a given year
The first ten chapters explain the various computations one will encounter in licens-
ing examinations and evewday practice.
The last three chapters describe how to use a pocket calculator to quickly solve
these computations, and provide the method of solving more complex and ad-
vanced problems such as: computation of the area of unusually shaped land areas
and the various calculations related to "balloon" mortgages. Examples are given
for an algebraic language calculator and a reverse Polish calculator as well as for a
basic four function model.
Real estate practitioners who master the time-saving skills explained will increase
their productivity, listings, commissions, and professionalism.
