LivePlan is wonderful. The best part is how easy it is to make adjustments and quickly see how it impacts cash flow. For example, one client had a 1% DSCR (Debt Service Coverage Ratio) which was not good enough—I said she wants to aim for 1.2% so she changed her hourly rate and automatically all the financial projections updated. We could have spent hours recalculating in a spreadsheet.
