Computer Focused Principles

You form an LLC using your last name and you decide to go into the real estate business; you are going to purchase a house and a condo. Through creative financing, you are going to purchase your first three-bedroom, single-family home for $35,800, but the bank will then give you an additional $35,000 for repair under this federal program for new investment buyers. You then find a three-bedroom condo, which you will also rent out. There is no special financing on that property, and the bank requires you to put 20% down. You agree on a purchase price of $115,000. You use part of the $35,000 excess ($23,000) to put down on the condo, leaving you $12,000 in your cash in bank account.


Below are your opening balances as of July 1, XXXX. (You choose the year, remember to be consistent with your dates.):


  • Cash in Bank $12,000

  • Cash in Bank $12,000

  • Long Term Liabilities $162,800

  • (70,800 house + 92,000 condo)


    Your assignment is to set up this business as a new company; you can choose the set up properties as you see fit. You would then enter the opening balances as of 6/30/xx (the previous month) of the two accounts listed above. (Cash and Liabilities – you can choose to lump the liabilities together or separate those out.)
