As stated previously, I have used both programs (Quicken RPM and QB Pro) for several years. I have found that the reports in Quicken RPM are very clunky compared to reports that I've always been able to create in QB. Now that we will be switching over to QB Pro for the RE property,I believe my reports will be more concise, accurate, and I won't have to re-invent the wheel every time I need a report.
I also don't like the fact that Quicken RPM is a glorified personal finance program and therefore there is a greater chance of mixing of personal expenses with business expenses. Reports can become muddled because expense items that should be listed, have been miscategorized under personal expenses. QB Chart of Accounts is a much better and more accurate way to allocate expenses then Quicken RPM "categories".
I feel that I have been "flying by the seat of my pants" using Quicken RPM for the last several years. I am looking forward to doing it right this time by purchasing your ebook and setting up my RE property business using your guidelines.
