IMPORTANT NOTE: ****************** IMPORTANT -- READ THIS FIRST ********************** The latest version of RealQuik is 3.12. This version is NOT compatible with earlier releases. Attempts to run version 3.12 on database listings produced by earlier versions will have unpredicable results. If you are a first time user you will have no problems, enjoy. If you are using a previous shareware version of RealQuik and you wish to maintain your old database, please register your copy with us and note that you have files produced by a previous version. We will supply you an upgrade program which will convert your files to a format compatible with this and all future releases. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to our unregistered users however some of the changes are significant and were required for future planned releases. ********** READ THE ABOVE MESSAGE BEFORE RUNNING YOUR PROGRAM ************* Thank you for taking the time to run this real estate managment software. This package will allow you to: - Perform listing managment - Recall homes/properties based on price,area,street or any number of search parameters. - Perform market analysis - Perform agent sales analysis - Perform buyer qualification much the same way as a lending institution. - Produce amortization schedules given any three of principal interest, term, or payments. - Produce mortgage comparison tables. - Calculate balloon payments - Produce professional looking reports for your clients. - Show the merits of owner financing. - Calculates commissions, fees and company dollars. - And much more. Below are a collection of user notes for running our real estate software package. This is not intended to be an operating manual. To receive an operating manual you must first become a registered user of this package. Registering your software with us has the following advantages, you will receive: 1. Complete phone support. 2. Complete operations manual. 3. A copy of the latest software version. (This copy will not include the introductory message asking you to become a user. You also will receive the latest version, which may have additional functions and bug fixes over this shareware version. We have no control over the amount of time the shareware version has been in the public domain, so this may be an older copy ) 4. A special program which will allow you to design your own MLS screen in place of ours. 5. A special utility program which allows you to produce a printout of all listings on file. 6. Copies of other utility packages (shareware versions) which may be of use to you. These are both real estate and general purpose software and currently include a memory resident amortization package and a typewriter emulator package. To run your system you will need at least 256k of RAM with DOS version 2.0 or higher. A hard disk, color monitor and printer are recommended but not mandatory. (If you dont have a hard disk the number of listings you may store will be limited to your disk capacity divided by 1200). To run the package, simply type REALESTATE at the dos prompt. Additional files which must reside on the same drive/path are: CONFIG.DTA -- Contains special configuration data which you control REAL.MSK ---- Contains the screen mask for the listing management section. REAL.DAT REAL.IN1 REAL.IN2 ---- These are the database files for listing management market analysis and agent performance. They will be created by the program when it is loaded the first time. You may want to back up all three files regularly as they contain all your listing information. ALWAYS restore ALL THREE files if one of the files should become erased or damaged. ********************** Additional User Notes ********************* Dear User: The only thing you should be aware of that has not reached the latest manual is that your printer should be set for six lines to the inch. This is only required if you intend to print reports. If your not sure what print setting you have, try running off a ten year amortization table. If your printer is set at other than six lines per inch, you may find that the paper does not line up correctly. Also, we have discovered on some systems that the use of the 'print screen' key will work ok the first time,but then cause strange printer problems. If this happens, turn the printer off and then back on again to correct the fault. This is a function of DOS and not your software package. *** IMPORTANT, limited help information is provided on screen, look at the bottom line, you will see a limited list of available commands for each function. You may use the arrow keys and the backspace and delete keys to perform editing functions. If you are familiar with the WordStar * editing keys, these may also be used. (* WordStar is a registered trademark of MicroPro International). We relize that this is a complex piece of software which may be difficult to learn without a manual. WE WILL give you limited phone support even if you are not a registered user. Please call 617-464-5474 for specific questions. (IMPORTANT after July 15, 1988 the phone company is changing our area code to 508, please dial 508-464-5474 after that date ). **** The Princeton Realestate System (TM) has now been released. This version of software will allow you to form a realestate data base for all your listings. Entries in the data base may be recalled rapidly based on the format of the MLS books. For example, if you want to recall all houses in the 80 to 100,000 dollar range, or all houses with pools, only a few keystrokes and a couple of seconds later and you will have your data. This new software also allows for complete market analysis of properties and allows you to make your own listing screen to suit your needs. As an example of how to recall listings, you must first enter your listings using the ADD function in the Listing Services Selection menu. Be sure to enter cities, streets etc. in the same manner each time (i.e. for Boston, always enter it as "Boston" or "BOS" or "Bstn", it doesn't matter how, just be consistent) After you have made your entries lets say a client comes in and is looking for property in Salem, simply call up the search function and use the arrow keys to move to the "CITY" field in the MLS screen. Enter the word "Salem" (upper and lower case never matters, feel free to intermix them ) and push the `End` key. The software will now search and display all Salem entries. For another example, lets say a client wants a house in the 150,000 to 200,000 dollar range. Call up the search screen again, move to the PRICE field with the arrow keys and enter "150,000-200,000". The system will now display all houses on file within this range. You may add as many search parameters as you wish before you push the 'End' key to begin the search. For example you could enter "Salem" for city, "150,000-200,000" for price and specify a fireplace and inground pool. The system will then recall only those properties meeting the search criteria. **** For MARKET ANALYSIS and AGENT PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS, find the entry using the search critera above under the ADD or EDIT selections and when the MLS screen appears, push function key F1. You will see a window appear over the property screen giving you the options of adding additional information. Fill in the desired information on selling price, agents name, agent commissions, etc. You may then search for agents, locations, prices, etc. the same way as you did above. **** Version 3.0 was released in January of 1986 to include the section entitled "Financial Analysis". This is essentially a buyer qualification package to determine how much money may be financed based on PITI. (PITI stands for principal, interest taxes and insurance. It is the figure used by lending institutions to arrive at an acceptance figure for a loan). Select entry -3- from the main menu to run this section. You should answer each question with a number entry. The arrow keys will move you around from entry to entry. The return key may also be used to move down as an alternative. If you wish to enter a zero for any entry, simply push the return key. As you move down the screen entering numbers, the computer will calculate figures leading up to the PITI amount. After the PITI is calculated (NOTE: If you have a color screen, your entries will be in blue while the computer calculated entries will be in yellow.) a ratio value will be calculated for both PITI/income and PITI + installment debts/income. These ratios are the primary factors used by banks to qualify you for a loan. For the individual home buyer, the first ratio (PITI/income) should be typically 25% or less. If you have a large down payment this number could go higher. If you use the 25% figure as a maximum, you will most likely be approved if all the other pertinent information on your loan application is OK. (i.e. Credit ratings, consideration for ALL installment debts, etc.,etc.,etc.) After all the values have been entered, you may then "play" by experimenting with different entries. (Every time you change an entry after the initial screen is filled, all the numbers will be automatically recalculated). A good example of this may be that the ratio figure initially may be high, say 26%, possibly blocking you from approval. You may find however that you can lower an installment debt by paying it off with your some of your downpayment money. Assuming you still have enough money left for the banks minimum down payment and closing costs, you may find that the ratio will now have dropped to a lower value. Since you are using a lower down payment, you will find that your monthly payments will increase somewhat, but you may at this point be approved, where before you could not be. When you are all done and want to return to the main menu, push the 'End' key located on the right side of the keyboard. You may push this key at anytime, even if you haven't finished all your data entry. IMPORTANT NOTE: The figures produced are only a GENERAL GUIDE as to how large a loan you may be approved for. Banks typically may take into account other factors and may even consider some things as liabilities which you may consider assets. The program will however give you a good idea as to what you may afford, or will be allowed to finance. ****** Version 3.02 was released on 3-18-88. This version corrects a small bug which would show 'sold' houses under the search mode. In this version, the operator should call up the market data screen under EDIT or ADD and change the 'Sale Status' to 'Sold' when a listing is sold. Once done, sold listings will not appear under the SEARCH mode unless the operator specifically enters the word 'sold' in the market analysis screen (function F1). The operator may still search for all listings (sold or otherwise) by entering a blank screen under the EDIT mode. ****** Version 3.12 supplies updates to the SCREEN program (registered users only), used for customizing the MLS screen. Additional changes provide hooks for future releases of network versions. ****** We always welcome your comments, both good and bad.
