The value of your property

When you add a property in Quicken, Quicken creates a house account having the same name as the property name and links the house account with the property. But if you already have a house account in Quicken, you can link that house account with a rental property. When you add a house account, enter the original purchase price, and add balance adjustments for any capital improvements or market value changes.


If you want to link a house account with a loan account, right-click the account name in the Account Bar, click Edit/Delete Account, and select the name of the loan account in the Mortgage Account list. Quicken can also help you add a loan account to track any amount you owe, and then add a loan to track the payment schedule, principal, and interest.
