I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year!

We got very sick with a flu(all our guests too) so I hope yours was better than mine! Anyway, we are now recovered and it’s back to business as usual. So far in the new year my real estate world has been busy:– 2 tenants gave notice so I’m marketing & showing the units – 3 houses needed the insulation in the attics upgraded – I made an offer to purchase a fourplex – attending a networking REAG meeting yesterday in Vancouver(got home at 4am this morning) and will be headed to one at the end of the week in Calgary(REIN) – removed some loose tile in the kids bathroom during bath times(if you’ve had little kids you know life revolves around nap times so you do projects a little at a time whenever you can fit them in)IMG_0025.JPG

Here is this week’s newsletter:


    1. Christmas Gift for you !
    2. Invest Kamloops TV – “Better to do things poorly…”
    3. Deal of the week: analyzed, researched, and ready to buy!




Since most of my readers did not take advantage of this fabulous resource, I am offering it again in case you were too busy to see it on Dec 24th! I will send you my most recent interview with a successful investor/business owner Tyler Getzen.  This guy is literally flying high and living his dream, so if you want some inspiration you are going to want to check this out! Please send me an email(sam@investkamloops.com) with “Merry Christmas” in the subject line and it’s yours FREE(I normally charge $77). Merry(belated) Christmas!




People have asked me “what are you up to with all this real estate stuff anyway?” My answer is best put in what the industry dubs an “elevator speech”. It’s basically a “canned response” that helps the listener quickly decide if they want to know more, you can listen to mine in this segment of InvestKamloops TV. Also a key insight for getting things done.




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 a great one, it’s the one I presented to REAG members yesterday. I first saw it in November on the MLS and frankly I can’t believe it’s still on the market. Here are the numbers:

Purchase: $289,900

Reno(add basement unit): $55,000

Rents: $2900

Cashflow: $800/mo

Working Capital needed: $113,000

Total Investment After Refinance: $66,500

ROI: about 14% per year in Cashflow alone on year 1(with 30yr 2.6% mortgage).


 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.)


 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.
