Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018

I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a healthy 2018.
May you and your family be blessed with a prosperous new year.
The biggest thing I learned this year is to never stop growing and learning. To take each experience whether good or bad as a life lesson and to grow from it. How we react to life will determine how we feel.
Keep smiling, keep learning, and keep believing.

It’s been an honour working with you. Until next time…

Turn-Key Triplex Renovation in Monarch Park – Episode #207

Turn-key triplexes in Toronto are very hard to come by. Especially ones that are finished with good quality, attract AAA tenants, and that actually cash flow positive.

The owners of this triplex located near Danforth and Monarch Park are spent close to $300,000 in renovations to create this luxury turn-key triplex that actually cash flows over $1000 / month!
This cash flow is calculated after refinancing and pulling out the renovations cost.

Contact me if you wish to get the detailed property analysis.

The finishes were selected with a purpose of attracting young professionals who love the trendy look of exposed brick walls, modern kitchens, rustic and durable floors, spa-like bathrooms, exposed wood beams, added storage space, and private outdoor space. Of course, the location is ideal being a short walk to Danforth, 2 subway stops, Monarch Park, great schools, and of course cafes and restaurants.

This will be an excellent long term investment for the owners.

Oshawa Bungalow Converted Into Legal Duplex After Renovations – Episode #203

We are back in Oshawa with Chris Arnts and he has converted this bungalow into a legal duplex.

The original purchase price was $325,000 and the actual renovation budget spent was $155,000.  The actual rents achieved are: main floor $1690 and basement $1250 plus hydro.

Approximate monthly cash flow after all expenses with 20% down payment will be $700 (after refinancing).

Oshawa is a pretty hot market.  A good city to compare to Toronto for investment purposes.

Oshawa Bungalow Before Renovations – Episode #202

Today we decided to take a different stance and venture out to Oshawa to see if owner Chris Arnts can take his experience from the Toronto Beaches and utilize it in another city.  Oshawa is relatively more affordable where you can probably fetch more monthly cash flow and it is also going through positive growth.

Chris purchased this property for $325,000 and the anticipated renovation budget is $100,000 to convert this property into a legal duplex.  The estimated rents once it is all finished is $1600 for the main floor and $1200 for the basement.  This is the before video so lets see how it turns out.

There are pros and cons to investing in any city, town or neighbourhood.  It is important to learn what they are and decide which area you want to invest in.  I believe every area has potential to make money…you just need to figure out what that method is and whether it works for you.
