This week was busy for me with conferences(more on that later) but I also enjoyed some family time – even if it was a shopping trip to Home Depot for some odds and ends for a property.


I’ve been conducting business as usual:– 1 of the 2 vacancies I learned about last week is filled so I’m marketing & showing only 1 of the units

– Learned the market is starting to heat up. There were multiple offers on the fourplex I tried to tie up last week.

– Took in some great info at a Reno to Rent event in Calgary.

Here is this week’s newsletter:

    1. Book Review – Ozzie Jurock’ Real Estate in Canada
    2. Calgary REIN Event – Tips to Reno for Maximum profit
    3. Deal of the week: analyzed, researched, and ready to buy!


I read Ozzie Jurock’s book “Real Estate in Canada” last week.  The book poses the journalistic questions “W.W.W.W.W. and H.”, then walks the reader through the logical answers.

"I keep six honest serving-men, (They taught me all I knew);Their names are What and Why and When, And How and Where and Who”

 Rudyard Kipling




This book is about your real estate investments.


Page 244 has the best types of property to purchase: Your own home; single family homes with basement suites, waterfront property, newer condos in major cities, apartment buildings, select commercial property, and most importantly BUY FOR CASHFLOW.


Sometimes the best place to put your money to work is in your community, and sometimes it is thousands of KMs away.  Good options include Casino Towns, major markets(during a downturn), or small towns in Ontario, Alberta or BC that have the following:

Calgary REIN event REVIEW – tips to maximize profits on renovations.

There were only 3 jackknifed semis on the drive from Kamloops to Calgary yesterday…

Why on earth was I on this highway instead of being with my family?

This week’s deal is ready to go! Someone did a great job setting up a high income student rental, although I’m disappointed in the low basement rent. There is an opportunity to increase revenue in this already huge cash flowing property with the addition of another bedroom downstairs. Here are the numbers:


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.
