    Here is the simple version of the transaction, not considering any tax, transaction cost or depreciation:

    Bought-Dr. House 1.7M Cr. Payable 1.7M
    Installment-Dr. Payable .25M Cr. Cash .25M
    Sold-Dr. Cash 1.9M Cr. House 1.7M
    Payoff the loan-Dr. Payable 1.45M Cr. Cash 1.45M

    *Do not tag onto other people's threads. It just keeps old threads alive and drags irrelevant stuff out. (Yours is not even related to this one.)
    *Don't double post. It's unnecessary and will not get you help any faster.
    *The entries for purchases and sales is an entire chapter. We can't lecture entire chapters on a forum. Narrow down a question to one thing that someone can actually answer.

    Consider this thread gone, start you own thread, and ask a more specific question.
