In addition to working as a REALTOR® and real estate professional, I am an investor, a member of Keyspire® and other Real Estate Investing clubs and networks, and a member of the Calgary Residential Rental Association. I connect regularly with other investors and professionals in the community to stay abreast of the latest developments and market opportunities.
I can help new investors get started on a path to success and discovering key advantages real estate offers to help create wealth and income streams over the long term.
“Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has been made in real estate than in all industrial investments combined. The wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.” – Andrew Carnegie, billionaire industrialist
Rehab and Flip Properties
In any market cycle, it is critical to do your homework first. That includes working with a REALTOR® to determine the “After Repair Value” of a rehabbed property and building in repair costs, carrying costs and selling/closing costs BEFORE you negotiate any offers. A REALTOR® with this knowledge and analytical capability, coupled with access to foreclosure/judicial sale properties and on or off-market properties can help give you an edge in finding profitable projects in any market cycle.
It is critical that your REALTOR® understands your investment goals and helps to find suitable properties that meet your investment criteria (i.e. cash flow/income and ROI including passive and active appreciation as well as principal recapture). Part of the services I offer include finding properties that are on MLS or not on market (“pocket listings”) and analyzing market rental rates for the community/property type, Net Operating Income, carrying costs and allowances and projecting cash-on-cash returns as well as Return on Investment when including active and passive/market appreciation as well as principal recapture on any mortgages.
Currently licensed as a REALTOR® for residential properties, I can help you buy and sell single-family homes/condos, duplexes, triplexes or 4-plex type properties.
