Customising Calculations in the Browser Extension Options

Now that you've finally downloaded PaTMa's Browser Extension Tool, set a free account, you can start to create property prospect lists. With the option of viewing essentials details such the property's price history, estimated yields and comparables as you browse property sites, you can also customise the calculations of the estimations made by system.

It is essential to understand that the estimated Return On Investment calculated within the Property Tools browser extension uses the asking price as the purchase price and uses a median of local comparable rental property rates as the rent. These are the default calculations of PaTMa's Buy-to-Let Profit Calculator.
