What Works in Toronto’s Uncertain Real Estate Market – Episode #206

There is fear in the air and this brings uncertainty in the market. Prices have come down since April 2017 so let me explain what investment properties work in today’s market in the Toronto Beaches and surrounding areas.

Duplexes – still tough to get them to work but as prices continue to level off there are some properties that may work

Triplexes – all day – key is to buy in the right location with the right type of property and converting it into a triplex (must make the quality finishes and layout work in order to attract the right tenant profile)

4-6 units – creating them is your best bet.

Most of time, the best strategy is to create your investment property / income property. To buy a turn key property on the open market will almost always not cash flow in today’s market in the Beaches and surrounding area. You must be willing to create it.

BIGGEST CHALLENGE:

Buyers don’t have the time, expertise (know-how), or capital required to create these income properties.

SOLUTION:

If I can provide you with the team that will create it for you (which eliminates the time and know-how) then that eliminates 2 out of the 3 biggest challenges.

Then how do we come up with a solution to #3 (capital required)?

3 options:

1. You do this solo with your own money (ideal)

2. Borrow it from a HELOC (2nd best option)

3. Partner up with someone you trust who has capital that you are willing to share the profits with

4. The 4th option is to contact me as I am working on this new strategy/program to help investors own a piece of Toronto real estate with little money down
