Invest Kamloops Newsletter | October 25, 2015 | Vol 2 | Issue 13


The faithful friend is a secure refuge.- Ancient Proverb


Two months ago I commented how time flies, and it certainly does. So much has happened, stay tuned for some exciting announcements – before the new year I promise 🙂

In the meantime, I was very lucky to have help painting the fence at one of my rental properties last week.  These two are great friends, it’s cool how close in age they are. 

Anyway, here is the latest newsletter:

    1. Barry McGuire’s Rapid Cash – Review
    2. Invest Kamloops TV – kids helped purchase new townhouse
    3. Deal of the Week
    4. Q3 Local Economic Update – $310,000,000 GDP for Kamloops in Q3

Review of Barry McGuire’s Rapid Cash Program

I recently had the privilege of taking Barry McGuire’s course on starting a real estate business outside of traditional buy-and-hold.

As you are probably aware, I am a huge proponent of buy-and-hold, my portfolio ATM is buy-and-hold. Starting down this path 7 years ago is what is allowing me to leave a secure job to follow my desire of being a “present parent”(Mr Mom).

Anyway, I used to shun anything not buy-and-hold as risky, ironically following Barry’s advice I had heard in my early years of investing. I knew people were making money in other ways, but I wasn’t ready to explore anything else until Barry started talking about alternative real estate investment deals coming through his law practice. When I saw this course being taught my Barry(who I hold in very high esteem), I knew I had to check it out. [read more]


Invest Kamloops TV

One of the reasons I did not have many newsletters or blog posts in the last two months is I’ve been busy working deals.  I assigned the previous “deal of the week” and purchased this one in September. The video below shows what it was like mid-reno. It was purchased for $200K, renos were $5K, and it rents for $1825.

If this deal sounds appealing to you, check out this week’s Deal of the Week below.

Deal of the Week

Here is a freebie: A townhouse that appears to be $30K under appraised value. Motivated seller wants to move to LMD before winder and doesn’t want to use a realtor.  Complex is new to me but documents I reviewed(Depreciation Report and Form B) look great. Pacific Way Townhouse


But there is always another deal around the corner 🙂

This week’s deal is great. JV with me or I will assign the deal for a small fee.

You carry mortgage and invest $32,616(20% down and 2.69% mortgage). I negotiate purchase, manage JV for length of hold, provide superb property management. You get all cashflow(4.4%/yr) until your capital is repaid(year 12). Upon sale or refinance profits are split. This unit is where I own 4 others and am on strata council, rents at other units 2@ $1877( incl util) and 2@ $1677(no util). Motivated seller accepted low price(insider knowledge). 6% vacancy assumed(2x Kamloops norm) however I’ve never been vacant in these units. 2.5% appreciation assumed however 2013-2015 has been more(see attached snapshot folder).

Besides this one, 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.
