Copy Scenario

Copy this new  Scenario to your Real Estate Financial Planner™ software:

SS 010 Investing $100,000 in Savings at Approx 2%/yr

You start with $100,000 invested in a savings account. The savings account has a default interest rate of 2% per year, but we use a separate Rule to change the interest rate on that account each month. The interest rate changes each month and will be different each time you run the scenario (since it is random and based on a random increase or decrease).

The  Scenario you want to copy into your Real Estate Financial Planner™ software has the following:

  • 2  Accounts (including  Default Cash Account)
  • 0  Properties
  • 1  Rules
