#15 How to Find Comps and Properties

Uncategorized Dec 16, 2019

Hi,

In this vlog, I answer a supplemental question from one of my online students related to my previous blog post on how to figure out how much to pay for multifamily properties.  In that post, I mentioned that investors needed to get data on recent sales for comparable ('comps') properties they're looking at purchasing to see the range of prices they're currently trading at.  My student asked where he can find comps in his market and I answer this question in this post.

In addition, I also share a couple of tips on where and how to find apartment buildings to purchase.

To your life's success and fulfillment!

#12 Over-Paying for Apartment Buildings : What's the Right Price?

Uncategorized Oct 09, 2019

A couple of students of mine in my online course 'Canadian Multifamily Investing Blueprint' asked me the following great question:

" If a building is over-priced in a realtor’s listing, how do you figure out the maximum amount you would pay to make it a worthwhile investment?"

In this video, I answer that question. There is no perfect answer!

 

Also, in case you have not heard, at popular demand, I'm having a second live workshop, the 'Canadian Multifamily Investing Blueprint' in Hamilton on November 1 (pm only), 2 & 3, 2019.  The event is ALMOST SOLD OUT but I still have VERY FEW SEATS LEFT at the early bird discount which you can access using the link below.

#11: Please, Don't Make These Mistakes! Prior Preparation is Not Optional in Multifamily Investing.

Uncategorized Oct 03, 2019

 

 

 

 

 Hi,

Last week, I was coaching a student of mine who recently took my 2.5-day live workshop. He was working on his first acquisition and was running into some problems because he was making some basic mistakes that I have seen lots of novice investors make over the years.

In this blog post I share those mistakes with you. Please, watch this short video and make sure you don't make the same mistakes too.

Also, as a result of popular demand, I'm having a second live 2.5-day workshop in Hamilton on November 1-3, 2019. 

I've already sold 2/3 of the limited seats available. So you'll have to act fast if you want to secure your spot.  That's because of the 'EXPERIENTIAL' format of my workshop, that is 'learning by doing', I keep the group very small - no more than 25 people or so.

The good news is that there still room at the early bird price. Click below to get more details:

In addition to that, I'm super stoked to...

#9 What are Cap Rates?

cap rates Aug 11, 2019

It’s of utmost importance when investing in apartment buildings to understand how to determine the current value of the asset and the principles of the valuation method.

So this short video, I walk you at a high level through the various valuation approaches used by appraisers and banks alike with emphasis on the ‘INCOME CAPITALIZATION APPROACH’ which used for multifamily properties.

YES, I’m going to talk about ‘CAP RATES’ and demystify them once for all! I’m also attaching an article I’ve written on this subject years ago which includes some tips.

First though, let me tell you the following:

DON’T GET HUNG UP ON CAP RATES!

That’s because you don’t get to choose the cap rate! Your banker and/or CMHC and the market decide what the cap is going to be.

If you really want to get hung up on something:

‘GET HUNG UP ON CASH FLOW!’

You must make the apartment building has a net positive cash flow.

LET THE...

#8 Professionalism is Not Optional When Investing in Apartment Buildings

One of the things I put a lot of emphasis on when I’m teaching multifamily investing or in my own business as an apartment building investor myself is on the NEED FOR A HIGH DEGREE OF PROFESSIONALISM.

 

Apartment building investors are expected to be very thorough in their planning and research phase before writing an offer to purchase. Stakeholders in the multifamily world expects investors to have done their homework much more than when investing in small rental properties one to four units because, of course, the stakes are higher. There’s much more capital at stake, not to mention your reputation.

 

I also advise my students to ensure they have multifamily professionals on their team before they venture into their first purchase of an apartment building starting with their realtor, mortgage broker, lender, building inspector and/or engineer and lawyer.

 

Well, for the first time ever I’m in the process of selling one of my properties and there...

#7 Submetering! Making money with apartment buildings: A Tip from a Pro!

If you're reading this post, it's very likely you've read or watched videos of previous posts of mine in which I talk about one my favourite reasons for investing in apartment buildings, that is the WEALTH MULTIPLIER EFFECT!.


You see, contrary to small rental properties containing one to fours units, for which the 'sales comparison' method is used to determine the value of the property, when you invest in larger apartment buildings of five or more units, the way the value of the asset is determined is called the 'income capitalization' approach, or 'cap rate' approach.

According to the cap rate valuation approach, the value of the property is arrived at by dividing the property's net operating income, or NOI, by your market's prevailing or average cap rate for comparable properties. To calculate the NOI, you subtract the property's operating expenses from the rental income.

The wealth multiplier effect, also sometimes called the 'big lift effect', kicks in whenever you increase...
