For the purposes of this article, I selected six criteria by which to make the comparison. These were selected from the feedback of customers and prospects as well as learning what is important for the successful adoption and implementation of project tools within an organization. Data Mining Data mining is a huge part of project management tools. The whole reason for having a tool is to collect data, so that you can look intelligently at that data, make sure your processes are performing as advertised, and make good decisions. You need to know which projects and tasks are slipping through the cracks so that you again react. You need to know when you will not have enough resources to meet demand so that you can allocate them properly or manage the demand. You need to know which issues are lurking so that you can address them now before you lose the favor of a critical customer. And you need to see how your processes are working so that you can continuously improve your processes.

Since this is a residential rental apartment building it makes sense to include rental income in your real estate spreadsheet. Thats obvious. What isnt so obvious are things like interest on tenant deposits, subsidies, tax refunds, etc. When youre building the spreadsheet you need to estimate when those revenues will arrive, and that relates to the number of tenants, the rental rates you charge, how long the lease term is for each tenant, etc. You also need to assume some late payments, evictions, and vacant units. If you havent invested in the area before this can be a challenge. You can gather data on that by speaking with local real estate agents, lenders, and tax agencies, or subscribe to an industry database that covers the local area. In most locations you also need to consider taxes. Are these charged up-front? As part of the mortgage loan payments? How frequent are they? When do they actually need to be paid? Are there any accounting costs? Can you use any tax credits or breaks? How do you calculate depreciation if that is a tax deduction? Taxes can be quite complex and you need them in your calculations or your investment value estimates will be incorrect.

For easier comparison purposes, budget spreadsheets should be arranged in columns and rows with the rows detailing the specific niches such as sales, supplies and distribution. The columns can have such headings as Expenditure or Income pages followed by the actual figureheads. In this way it would be easier to make a comparison of such aspects as supplies against sales to identify the area that is performing well and one that undergoes losses. Then one can use the same excel table at the end of the year to come up with the annual returns or losses for each category. The margin of losses, if any, can pinpoint the way for budgeting in the coming year. Returns on the other hand can be great in scaling the market dynamics that prove favorable and that ought to be followed in the coming business semester.

Spreadsheet: A table of rows and columns, free for the entry of data, or formulae for calculating actions on those data. Each row or column is said to contain many cells and these cells serve as homes for every shred of information. Many spreadsheet applications nowadays have functionality above and beyond the traditional, offering a variety of charts, look-up tables, databases and more functionality than can be mentioned here. Regarded as a very effective and reliable means of data management, monitoring valuable financial data, as well as optimizing processes involving frequent data entry and manipulation, spreadsheet programs have rapidly become popular among businesses of all types and sizes. Elaborate, properly constructed spreadsheets greatly simplify a wide range of activities and processes within companies, enabling business owners to economize valuable time and effort, increase the efficiency of their business (Analysis), keep track of different tasks, manage their budget, optimize the planning of future events (Forecasting), organize and access valuable information, and optimize the completion of specific tasks.

However, theres no need for complicated formulas and no need to examine row after row of data and figures. Instead, business intelligence platform users simply drag and drop data and view it visually. Data visualization tools display results in numerous ways such as traditional charts and graphs as well as highly visual gauges, maps, meters, and more. Data can be drilled down in an instant, allowing users to hone into relevant data based on their interests or job roles. BI tools and dashboards can be set to monitor key performance indicators for real-time insights. In addition, ad hoc reporting makes it easy for users to create custom reports detailing whatever data they need to analyze on the fly. If youve ever tried to create custom ad hoc reports with Excel, you know how cumbersome and time-consuming it is - and thats after youve imported the latest data into the spreadsheet.

I use the spreadsheet along with MsWord to create a mail merge, the two programs work together to print addresses directly on flyers, post cards or envelopes. I can print 10,000 names in a few hours. There is no need to print labels and then have to stick them on your mailer. Another use for the spreadsheet is to do job costing. You can keep track of your painters hours and compare those hours to the hours you used to calculate the estimate for the job. Enter the painters names in the first column, you can then enter to rooms or job names in the first row. Then in each column under the room name put the hours or you can break it down further, putting the separate items like walls and molding/trim and keep track of the hours spent doing individual items. Of course there is always the profit and loss statement or spreadsheet with all expenses, which you give to the accountant. Using the spreadsheet to keep track of company expenses is a good use, and again you can use the "AutoSum" feature to keep totals. One nice thing about Excel is that if you change a figure in the column or row that you are totaling, the "AutoSum" will automatically adjust the total to reflect the new figure. So whatever uses you find for this program, you will find that it saves time and energy to do these repetitious jobs. And it will do things like adding or multiplying correctly and with ease.

Designing a strong real estate spreadsheet requires some forethought about the uses, calculations, and net results youre looking for. This should be done before you ever get started. Here we demonstrate some key considerations by means of a case study. To demonstrate the proper approach to designing and building a real estate spreadsheet in Excel, lets use a residential multi-unit rehabilitation project example. To keep it simple, lets assume it has 4 apartment units, was built 60 years ago, has 3 existing tenants, and requires new interior and exterior paint, some plumbing and electrical work to update the property to modern safety standards, and a partial re-roofing to fix some water damage.
