To say that I'm super stoked about my upcoming virtual workshop this coming weekend is an understatement!  This year, I'm adding two new CASE STUDIES demonstrating ADVANCED MULTIFAMILY INVESTING STRATEGIES. That's in addition to the other four case studies that were already in the course.

Why Apartment Buildings Are Such a Great Investment in Times of Crisis Such as The Pandemic!


My observations, while I was a CMHC multifamily underwriter and through my personal experience of investing in multifamily properties during the 2009 Global Recession and during this Pandemic, both demonstrate how resilient and counter-cyclical this asset class is during such economically challenging times.

Larger apartment buildings of five-plus units clearly outperform other investment vehicles.

In this vlog post, I share the highlights of a report by CBRE called 'Canadian Multifamily in the Post-Pandemic Erawhich once again confirms the resiliency of apartment buildings in recessionary times.

Please, stay healthy!

Your Financing Application Goes Into a BLACK HOLE!

Uncategorized Jan 24, 2021

When you apply for financing for apartment buildings, whether for CMHC-insured financing or conventional financing, it's almost like your financing application is going into a BLACK HOLE and you're never sure what's going to come out of it!

You cannot predict with exact certainty how the bank and/or CMHC will treat your financing application. 

There is no cookie-cutter approach for all deals!

You won't know for sure what loan amount they'll give you, what cap rate and vacancy rate they'll use in their pro forma, etc., and they won't commit to anything in advance until you've submitted all your supporting documents and each deal is underwritten on a case by case basis on its own merits.

In this post, I share with you four tips on how to somewhat reduce uncertainty and build your reputation in the business.

For your convenience, I've attached below the link to CMHC's Underwriting Reference Guide which I refer to in the post.


Wishing you well!
