Know Thy Numbers: The Basics of Bookkeeping for Real Estate Professionals

Dave and Laurie Rice of REI Bookkeepers, Fort Myers, Florida.

Business. It’s all about the numbers. In Know Thy Numbers: The Basics of Bookkeeping for Real Estate Professionals, we are going to discuss financial statements, which are the backbone of your business. You will see some real world examples of what should be included in the financial statements of real estate investors. Hopefully, this will prompt you to review your own financials to make sure that your statements are reflecting what is happening in your business.




Join Dave and Laurie live and face-to-face on the FOURTH TUESDAY of the month from NOON to 1pm CENTRAL as they explore the finances that the field of real estate investment work. Feel free to bring your questions.

PLEASE NOTE: When you click on the above link, you will be asked to allow a quick platform download (about 10 seconds). If all works as it should, you will see the platform load up. You will see yourself in a test window and be given the opportunity to test your microphone.


Bandwidth Requirements for ZOOM:


The bandwidth used by Zoom will be optimized for the best experience based on the participants’ network. It will automatically adjust for 3G, WiFi or Wired environments.


For 1:1 video calling: 600kbps (up/down) for high quality video and 1.2 Mbps (up/down) for HD video

For group video calling: 600kbps/1.2Mbps (up/down) for high quality video. For gallery view: 1.5Mbps/1.5Mbps (up/down).

You will need a video camera (a built in camera will suffice for now).  Long term, we recommend the Logitech c920 OR c930 for a quality camera at an affordable price.


We also recommend that you use a headset with built in microphone. Even a simple $20 headset from Walmart works just fine. The headset helps to prevent needless feedback where the audio from other conference attendees cycles back into your microphone and causes distortion.
