Invest Kamloops Newsletter | Dec 1, 2015 | Vol 2 | Issue 14


“Anyone who ever wondered how much they could love a child who did not spring from their own loins, know this: it is the same. The feeling of love is so profound, it’s incredible and surprising.” ― Nia Vardalos, Instant Mom


I have a few big announcements since my last newsletter. We are pleased to introduce our newest addition! Lavinia and Landen’s biological sister will be joining our family and we can’t wait. We have been vising her regularly, and hope to have her home before Christmas 🙂


In the meantime, I have an official announcement that many of you know already. I am retiring and my last day as an RCMP officer will be Jan 1, 2016. Full time dad/real estate investor is now my life!  I’m having a retirement party and you are invited, keep reading to learn the details. 

Anyway, here is the latest newsletter:

    1. Caution – very personal(I need your help)
    2. Sam in the Media(and retirement party invite)
    3. Deal of the Week
    4. Improving sales with Kevin Hogan


Caution – very personal

I’m about to share something I’ve never said before in public.

It’s about my kids,

now my reason for existing,

who for me are the answer “what is the meaning of life”.

People frequently tell me “that so great you gave those kids a home, you’re such good people.” They think because I adopted my kids that I’m an awesome guy.

It’s a lie.

The truth is I’m very selfish.

Sam in the Media 

I’ve recently been blessed to be published in a few places. You can see me in the latest issue of the REIN Report, and I will be giving a copy to you at my retirement party if you can make it(Saturday Dec 19th).


If you can’t wait for the party, you can read my article here:


I was also interviewed for Dave Dubeau’s Canadian Real Estate Profits members, if you have an hour to drive somewhere this might keep you entertained 🙂mp3

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.

Improving Sales with Kevin Hogan

I’ve recently been introduced to a great resource for improving sales, Kevin Hogan.

If you are interested in this type of thinking you will love his content. Here are some golden eggs:

  1. If you truly care about your customers they will be loyal for a lifetime.
  2. Use the word “because” in answers to the question “why.” It will trigger compliance over 50% of the normal response rate.
