20140716-085840-32320869.jpgWow! July is half over, and 2014 is entering the second half too!

I only have a fraction of my goals from January completed, but I received a gift much better instead!

I must apologize to all those who messaged me, I know this newsletter is 2 weeks late, but for good reason…

My personal life has changed big time! Marcy and I are overjoyed to welcome Lavinia(23 months) and Landen(7 months) to our family! We are still in the midst of bonding as a family, but already our two little angels are such a blessing!

Thanks to all our friends and family for the support while we waited for our kids, and for all the awesome hand-me-downs!

Reluctantly(I could talk all day about my kids), on to business…

What if interest rates rise?

I recently described my business model to a friend, including my use of mortgages to finance rental property.

He was intrigued but was worried about one thing:
Q: What if interest rates go up like they did in the 1980′s? Won’t you go bankrupt?

ABOUT SAM
I have been investing in Real Estate in Kamloops B.C. since 2009. The experience has been both eye opening and profitable. I have purchased over 1 Million dollars in Real Estate. Although this “magic” number in today’s dollars is less than when I was a boy, it’s a milestone I am proud of.

My goal now is to expand my business and portfolio using the S.A.F.E. investment principles I have developed. I have been creating double digit returns using Real Estate for myself and my partners. I am looking forward to continued success and growth with new investment partners.

Like all things worthwhile, Real Estate Investing takes hard work. Much like a garden, a real estate portfolio requires constant attention, care, weeding and upkeep. If well cared for, the fruits from years of labor are very rewarding.

To date I have dealt with evictions, tenant turnover, dozens of tenants, major renovations, won arbitration hearings, made some mistakes and learned lessons along the way. I am looking for the right partners to join me in making money with Kamloops Real Estate.
