A VERY SHORT BLOCK FROM THE ILLUSTRIOUS “JILLY’S GENTLEMEN’S CLUB”, EYEBROWS WERE RAISED OVER THE CHOICE OF LOCATION.
BUT WITH A STRONG FOCUS ON THE AREA’S (AND TORONTO’S) ECONOMIC FUNDAMENTALS
THE LOCATION WAS PRIME FOR FUTURE GROWTH
WITH SOME RENOVATED PROPERTIES AND TRENDY
COFFEE SHOPS / BARS ALREADY POPPING UP.
Our no-nonsense formula for real estate success is based on three fundamental principles: proximity to transit, gentrification and location relative to a booming area. Investing in “ugly” properties on the fringe of growth areas that are close to transit, and turning them into beautiful spaces that garner above-average rents has been the foundation of our success.
With two young children of my own, funding their education and my retirement with GIC’s that pay less than inflation and horrible mutual fund returns (that still charge over 2%MER!) seemed impossible. I had to change the way I looked at investing, and focused on Income Properties. By using my contracting skills and developing an Investor enabling team of Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Lawyers and Insurance specialists, over the past 10 years, my goals are now easily attainable.
