Invest Kamloops Newsletter | Jan 1, 2016 | Vol 1 | Issue 1


The glory of young men is their strength, gray hair the splendor of the old. – Proverbs 20:29


A few updates since my last newsletter

I hope you had a good Christmas, ours was just us and we had a good time. Our newest addition Laci(Lacianna Victoria) is now home with us, it’s been almost 2 weeks and she has been a delight.

It’s a sad time of year for some, losing a loved one anytime is hard but Christmas time can amplify the grief.  My deepest condolences to my friends and family who know what I’m talking about and who lost a loved one in 2015. 

Course Announcement:
Although I am only 30, I have quite a few grey hairs, and am looking forward to a change of pace focusing on raising our kids and the odd real estate deal.  

My retirement party was good fun in case you missed it, thanks to everyone who made it a success!  Between the 50/50 draw and book sales we raised almost $725 to bring home Isla.  

My business partner and realtor Gordon Ballantyne and I announced a new course we’ve designed “How to Invest in Kamloops Real Estate.”  It’s a 3 hour live training evening on February 24th and 26th where we will outline ALL the secrets to our business including:
– what types of properties to buy and which to avoid
– how to find deals that will have investors throwing money at you
– where to find investors and what to say when you meet them
– what websites to use for research and building presentations(a full list of the software we use)
– how to work with a realtor(and the unfair advantage the right realtor provides)
– the best parts of Kamloops for growth
– business models that make money no matter what the market is doing(up, down or flat)
Nothing is being held back so this is a course you don’t want to miss. Tickets are $200 with proceeds going to “Help bring home Isla”. You can read more about this great cause here.

Anyway, here is the latest newsletter:

    1. Sam in the Media(in case you missed it last month)
    2. Deal of the Week
    3. Kamloops Q4 Economic Update


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, if you didn’t get a copy 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

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

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.

Want to make a quick $20-50k? Annual ROI on this is between 50-150%. 

Motivated seller accepted low price(insider knowledge). Required investment $50-350k Depending on deal structure, contact me for details. Forced appreciation assumed based on recent sales across the street. View 42 page Report on Kamloops for Real Estate Investors at

Conservative Projection – Download PDF

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.
