We are about to buy a house and I am not sure how to set it up to reflect:

The Asset

Amount we have contributed to the purchase

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Hi Scott,
The house is an asset, the mortgage is a liability. An account for each.

Hi Scott - Go to Menu Property & Debt, Property & Debt Accounts, Add Account. Then follow the wizard for add an Account - "House" is selected by default and following this through sets both the Asset account and the mortage. Your deposit is a simple transfer the amount you paid out (less costs) from your bank to the Asset account. My asset account is called Residential Property and I use class or tag to distinguish each different property that I have moved around in over the years.
