My son turned 1 and we had a fun party ��


It’s hard not to feel happy watching a baby dig into a cake for the first time, sometimes I wish I could do that!  

We had a good week and I hope yours was too, here is this week’s newsletter:

  1. Feature blog post – “How to make $16K in 2 hours”
  2. InvestKamloops TV: “Oil Prices Don’t Affect Kamloops”
  3. Deal of the week: analyzed, researched, and ready to buy!




How to Make $16k in 2 Hours

This article got a ton of views and comments on Facebook so you might be interested too:

Big money made in Kamloops at a recent 2 hour event. Here’s how it happened.

There was a call at suppertime from an unknown number.

Usually I ignore these calls but for some reason I answered.

I was about to tell the caller to add me to the do not call list, when I heard “free event to learn about wholesaling right in Kamloops.”

“Sure, sign me up.” I replied.

After all, I didn’t know that wholesale deals existed in Kamloops, and I didn’t know much about this Real Estate strategy so I was intrigued.

Plus I thought it would be a great chance to meet other like minded investors.

Before hanging up, I gave my email address, and the caller referenced “Scott Yancey from Flipping Vegas” many times. Before now I did not know about that TV show or who Scott was, but I was interested to meet him and in his model of investing.




Oil Prices Don’t Affect Kamloops

Oil Prices Don't Affect Kamloops

Investing in single industry towns is risky, no matter what the potential upside.

I’ve spoken with numerous investors in recent months who are looking for a good return on investment(ROI) of their money using real estate.  There have been new build projects in Alberta and Northern BC that had booths at many Real Estate events I frequent, all looking for investment dollars from people like you and me.

After growing up in a boom-bust town, I know how the volatility of the market can catch people off guard.  Put a $10k down payment, or worse purchase a pre-build for cash, the market turns and your money can be tied up forever.

A recent example is the huge drop in oil prices this week and what this means to real estate investors.



Due to an overwhelming demand for consulting services, I am limiting new clients.

Are you…

– trying to decide if Real Estate investing is right for you?– 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 has dealt with evictions, filling vacancies, and every tenant situation imaginable. Since services are in high demand, consulting rates start at $100/hr.

This week’s deal is another with great potential, here are the numbers:

Purchase: $190,000

Downpayment: $38,000($152,000 mortgage)

Closing Costs: $6,300

Reno(add 1 more basement unit): $27,000

Working Capital needed: ~$72,000

Refinance value :$240,000

New mortgage: $192,000 – $152,000(old mortgage) = $40,000 recaptured

Total Investment After Refinance: $32,000

Rents: $897 x 2 and $1399 = $2296

ROI: almost 17% per year in Cashflow alone on year 1(with 30yr 2.6% mortgage).

There are simply too many good deals in Kamloops for me to capitalize on all of them. As result, I am publishing my proforma reports(like the one for the above property) and the plans I would carry out on these properties. With these properties, the double digit returns I talk about on this website are easily within reach.

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.

To get a 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 here: 724 Battle Street.

The value of my pro forma analysis?

Well, if I could purchase them all, each one could be worth $1000/mo(the 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? Especially 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.
