How many times have you been out at a dinner party or out with friends and have heard a story about someone making a fortune on a real estate investment? And how many times have you heard people say, I want to get into the market, but I don’t want to be a landlord. What if you could be “in the market” without being a landlord?
Growth in real estate has been faster than the growth of many other investments. However, before investing in real estate, be prepared to undertake extensive background research on the journey your about to embark on.
One of the main things we always urge potential investors to do is to get their financial house in order. Potential investors are keen, eager and want to just get in on the ‘market’ because it’s hot and they want to make a quick buck! Real estate is a long term strategy for building wealth. If you’re in it to make a quick buck, I’m sorry but you’re in the wrong business.
Once the money is invested it’s hard to get the money out, which is why our investments are longer-term in scope (typically 3-5 years) therefore if you need access to that money, you won’t be able to get your investment out of the property quickly. All the more reason you need to ensure your financial house is sound and you won’t be needing access to your capital investment
WHY REAL ESTATE?
Have you ever been sitting at your desk at your 9-5 job and day dreamed about the future, your retirement and what you want it to look like?
Is it sandy beaches? Blue skies? Sailing around the world? Or buying a home in an exotic country? We all have dreams, but sometimes they are just that!
Do you want to just get away from the world or the rat race of the 9-5 and live life on your terms?
Does financial freedom mean never having to worry about the monthly bills or the stress of how you’re going to pay for your son or daughter’s college or university tuition?
We all have those fears, but you have the power to do something about it and real estate can be one of the avenues to achieve just that.
It’s no surprise there are many investments out there, which can sometimes be a daunting task to determine what’s right for you. Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSA) where do you start? You have many options!
But how many of those investments do you actually control? None, really. These are typically controlled by the suits on Bay Street, some so-called guru responsible for managing your money in the equity markets.
Is that what you want? Your financial future in the hands of a portfolio manager?
Real estate is a finite resource - no one is making any more land - and the demand for this resource is always climbing. Climbing slowly but a steady secure investment with predictable growth year over year. These factors alone create the Financial Security you desire in your investment portfolio.
PLANNING FOR A CAREER/LIFESTYLE CHANGE
In today’s global economy more and more we are finding that professionals are changing jobs every 3-5 years.
Gone are those jobs that people to go for 25-30 years and more importantly these new jobs usually come with fewer benefits, that includes retirement benefits. Do you really want to rely on someone else to fund your retirement?
Why not be in the driver’s seat of your own financial future. Why not remain focused on building your current career while securing your financial future by investing part-time real estate. We can help you secure that financial future and ensure you are well prepared on any future career change.
ENSURING A SECURED RETIREMENT
Sometimes we just get so focused on our corporate life that we tend to lose site of the bigger picture and where we see ourselves in our retirement?
Have you started to think about your retirement yet? I know you have! But I also bet you have started to plan for it.
Maybe that retirement is travelling the world, maybe it’s staying close to home and watching your grandchildren grow up, or maybe it’s just working in your garden or volunteering in your community. No matter what that dream retirement looks like you want to know you have the financial ability to secure it.
No matter if you are 30, 40, 50 or 60, it is never too late to plan for tomorrow or revise your current plan.
