Miztiessy : The bank my mortgage is through won't finance single wide mobile homes. I bought a 1988 single wide on land 5 years ago in Washington. I want to do a streamline but can't find a lender who does this.
I've looked online and read that a law had passed that ended up classifying mortgages on mobile homes as high risk and predatory and lenders don't want the liability. So maybe I'm just stuck.
Any insight is appreciated.

hyloadlodiact : unfortunately u are.
mobile (trailer) homes are only
financed by mobil home companies now.

Plus the age of your place puts it out
of most lenders numbers.

time now to build cash and pay it off.

Jamesgos : So okay. I've been working like a server and a cash register at this frozen yogurt place. I've been used to like cash and credit card transactions until this one set of customers decide to use their debit card. So I swipe like a credit card and I guess I used up all he have it was like seven dollars something and the remaining he has to pay was like three dollars something. I was confused at first and I swiped at the other register and so I think that didn't go through since I used up. They asked to use 2 cards before their pay. So then I decide to use the other card and swipe to around the same amount with the remaining three dollars something. So I had them pay the remaining in cash but I'm not sure if it was exactly the remaining..Anyway it was all confusing since it was my first using a debit card and I they left but I get to hand back their change. I don't know if I exactly did the right transaction or messed up. I feel like I made a mistake and I talked to my parents about it. They said its ok and don't worry about it. My manager's a nice guy but I probably would get yelled for fessing up now. It's been bothering me. Would those customers know the errors of their transactions about their debit card?

phapticiets : Powell Corporation is trying to determine the initial investment required to replace an old machine with a new, more sophisticated model. The proposed machine’s purchase price is $380,000, and an additional $20,000 will be necessary to install it. It will be depreciated under MACRS using a 5-year recovery period. The present (old) machine was purchased 3 years ago at a cost of $240,000 and was being depreciated under MACRS using a 5-year recovery period. The firm has found a buyer willing to pay $280,000 for the present machine and to remove it at the buyer’s expense. The firm expects that a $35,000 increase in current assets and an $18,000 increase in current liabilities will accompany the replacement. The firm pays taxes at a rate of 40%.

So, according to my powerpoint slides, its
($380,000 Purchase of new machine +$ 20,000 Installation Costs)
- ($280,000 Proceeds from sale of present machine +
$ 84,160 Tax on sale of present machine)
= $195,840

+$17,000 (Change in net working capital) for a total of $221,160.

I don't understand the last part. I get that purchasing the new equipment creates a cash outflow, and selling the old machine creates a cash inflow. Sure, assets increase, but why would this suddenly add to cash outflow? Why wouldn't cash outflow only come from selling the new equipment??? Thanks
not $195,840, i meant $204,160
