Invest Kamloops Newsletter | May 22, 2015 | Vol 2 | Issue 9


As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

– Ancient Proverb


It’s been a while since I’ve written, thanks to all of you who reached out curious about what I’ve been up to.  My last 8 weeks were like this: 

Back to work full time(my job is still interesting but I don’t miss the nightshifts!)*, Juggling childcare till Marcy is off for the summer(Thank Grammie and Memere for providing relief during this busy time!!), Turned 30, Closed on a townhouse(college fund for the kids), Caught up on training(ran the PARE at 3:02, yay better than last year,  for a reminder of what that is like click here), accepted offer on a house downtown closes June 1st, multiple tenant turnover, visited family in AB for a week, my son Landen started walking, and we are trying to get him and Livy to wear their glasses.

As you can see I have had my hands full during the last transition, so the newsletter took a backburner.  But now I am back! I will be experimenting with different formats in upcoming issues so be sure to let me know what you like/dislike 🙂

*Aside: In two short months back at work I’ve dealt with hundreds of situations of human nature, at it’s worst and at it’s best.  I had forgotten what that was like and the 9mo parental leave was a nice break to reset my thinking, I can now respond to files with a fresh perspective. I will write more about this topic one day…

Here is this week’s newsletter:

    1. Kamloops Economic Update
    2. Article – REIN Meeting Review
    3. Invest Kamloops TV – Newest Townhouse(before renovation)
    4. Deal of the Week

Kamloops Economic Update

Millions have been earmarked for Kamloops, and shovels are in the ground! Check out this list of $148M(!!!!!) spent and earmarked in the first quarter of 2015.

Article  – REIN Meeting Review

At the most recent REIN meeting I realized that I was becoming overwhelmed, and thanks to the support of this great community I am back on track. Here are the themes and great content REIN put together: Lending, Ecomonic Update, Inspiration(you want to read about this!), Advice(custom tailored), and a great presentation by Thomas Beyer. Read about it all here.

Invest Kamloops TV

My newest purchase, before renovations.  Purchase for $208,500, I will advise of reno costs once completed. Already rented for $1,877(money in the bank before 1st mortgage payment 🙂 ).


Do You Need Real Estate Advice? 

1 on 1 coaching is available to very qualified clients. Are you… seeking a good real estate investment? Struggling with a nightmare tenant? Thinking about selling?

If you have a real estate problem, advice from a third party can be invaluable. I have a solid consulting track record and have dealt with financing solutions, private sales, multiple offers, negotiations, evictions, filling vacancies, and every tenant situation imaginable.  Since my personal services are in very high demand, consulting rates are $150 for a laser focused 15 minute in person or phone session, to a maximum of four consecutive sessions. 

Book a FREE, no obligation, 15 minute phone call with me to learn if we can work well together. Call or email* 

*When requesting a phone call, please provide as much information as possible.  A detailed summary with the complete circumstances will ensure I can best help you quickly.


Deal of the Week

I have a couple deals in the works. You see a conservative return of at least 10%/yr in a joint venture with me, or less if you wish to loan money instead(registered funds are eligible).

To get full pro forma with the address and detailed numbers, you must either be on my investors list by clicking here, or be a paid subscriber(I am practically giving these away.)
You can see what a full proforma looks like by clicking here: 724 Battle Street.

There are simply too many good deals in Kamloops for me to capitalize on all of them. As result, I will be publishing my proforma reports and the plans I would carry out on these properties to produce the double digit returns I talk about on this website.

Since I am doing deal analysis on an ongoing basis anyway, I may as well help anyone who is searching for their next property in Kamloops.

The value of these analysis?

Well, if I could purchase them all, each one would be worth $1000/mo(the REAL cashflow of my most recent deal). Since I cannot at the moment purchase them all, you can have them for $7 each.

Why only seven dollars when I spend at least two hours per week on my initial due diligence?  Because I want to make sure the opportunities I find benefit you, my loyal readers.  If you can make money with a property I find, that makes me happy.
