From Rookie to Rock Solid Investor in 7 Weeks >> Summer School is Back!
Have you felt stuck because you can’t figure out what market will be the best one to invest in? With all the excitement over Alberta, is that the place to invest? What about Hamilton or Kitchener/Waterloo? It is on everyone’s radar these days! Maybe there are still some opportunities in the US?! How do you pick?
Have you found a deal you thought would be a good one but you weren’t sure so you walked away because you didn’t know how to properly analyze the expenses and revenue potential of the property … left feeling regretful and uncertain.
“Before I signed up I was worried whether I would get my money’s worth… I just closed on my first property since taking Summer School and despite a bidding war I got it for LESS than market value, using little of my own money! It was simple strategies I learned from this training that helped me get such a great deal when other offers were ABOVE asking price and mine was not! So did I get my money’s worth? Heck ya! I highly recommend Rev N You’s training.” ~ Martin Beaulieu, Sherwood Park, AB

If you’ve ever had a late night call from a tenant or you’ve felt frazzled because you have wasted an hour trying to find a document for the insurance on your property or your tenant’s lease? These are the systems good landlords have in place to manage their properties and not lose their minds. And, these are the kinds of systems that allowed Quentin D’Souza to build a beautifully cashflowing real estate portfolio and start and develop a hugely successful real estate club in Durham, ON, all while working a full time job and spending time with his family.

Once you’ve taken the time to make sure your property is ready to show and you’ve written a great rental ad the next step is to screen the prospective tenants that call you.
Many people are content to exchange emails with potential tenants to set up viewing times and I have seen others that encourage text messages. You can do that, but you are missing out on a great opportunity to screen your tenants and you will absolutely waste time going to show your property for the wrong people or people that do not show up.
We’ve learned that if …Read more →
It was midnight. My son was passed out beside my wife Steph and I. The other two kids were off with friends for the weekend so we’d been able to make our way to Hamilton to work on our new student rental. And that’s where we were – side by side, sitting on the floor with Allen wrenches in our hands building furniture. We finished at about 2am, pumped up our air mattress and collapsed onto it in the middle of our now furnished common room.
We had students moving in the next day and we needed to get the …Read more →
“Most people, when directly confronted with proof that they are wrong, do not change their point of view or course of action but justify it even more tenaciously.” ~ Carol Travis & Elliot Aronson, Mistakes were Made (But Not By Me).
My Mom used to joke that she had a third child named “Not me”. Growing up “Not me” was responsible for a lot of mischief. My brother and I didn’t agree on many things but we could almost always agree that “Not me” did the thing that one of us was about to get in trouble …Read more →
Getting a blog going is a fantastic way to create credibility, help people get to know you and become known as a real estate expert. The problem is that it is harder than ever to get people’s attention online unless you’re sharing pictures of kids doing cute things or crazy cute cats. It is not “build it and they will come”.
Too many people put up a blog, post a link on Facebook and think that they are going to get blog readers.
Maybe if you are really creative and hit a concept that goes viral that could happen, but …Read more →
Looking for a way to buy a home to live in without having to carry a giant mortgage on your own income? Buy a multi-unit property like a duplex, triplex or fourplex and move into one of the units. A well chosen property can find you living in a much better area than you could have afforded otherwise and paying a lot less “rent” than you would have otherwise done.
We did this in Toronto for a few years. We moved into a three-unit property that we owned. Our friends moved into the top floor; we lived on the …Read more →
The laws are different in every province and every state, so you have to look up your specific area but this will be a good general guide for most landlords.
We were waiting for our tenant to come onto our scheduled dispute resolution hearing (a conference call with the “judge”, the tenant, and the landlord) so he could defend his side of the story. We’d asked for an order of possession for our property because he was a month behind in …Read more →
