Creating long-term wealth through investment property ownership
First, why investment property ownership? Diversify, diversify, diversify cash, stocks, bonds AND real estate. Create a pension plan for the future. Over the long term, an investment property or multiple real estate holdings can be a great source of retirement funds. Invest now for children so they have a better future. Many millionaires have made their wealth through prudent and well planned real estate investments.
What’s the overall process? Find an investment property that meets your risk/return profile. Secure financing Find good tenants because you will be the landlord. The rental income should cover all or most of the costs of the property, or possibly provide you with a profit. The ultimate goal is an increase in the value of the real estate over the long term, and receiving rent that is primarily profit once the mortgage is paid off.
Your role; our role Find an investment property that meets your risk/return profile. Secure financing. Find good tenants. Let us worry about the financing!!

Summary of Benefits Positive cash flow may be possible, but goal is to have your rent(s) cover most or all of the costs. Expenses related to the property are tax deductible, offsetting rental income and sometimes more. Remember this is a liquidable asset (you can always sell it)! Property has always appreciated over the long term, and more than the rate of inflation (but give yourself a reasonable time frame). Tenants are paying off your mortgage. When it is free & clear, it’s an income to you.
Other key considerations Location is key for investment property: convenient location desirable to renters. Low crime rates, good school district, near shopping malls and public transportation / highway. Have a minimum three-month contingency reserve fund for unexpected expenses such as repairs or a reduction in cash flow (i.e. in the event you have a short-term vacancy). Consider all expenses when setting rents: mortgage payments, taxes, property management, condominium fees, insurance, repairs and maintenance and allowance for vacancies.
Other key considerations (cont’d) Keep rents at market maximums and if possible manage expenses to keep them at market minimum. Use professionals as much as possible. Tap into their expertise for your peace of mind, enhanced revenue potential, and reduced risk. This includes a realtor, lawyer, accountant (advice on all tax deductions), building inspector, appraiser, contractor(s), and possibly a property manager.
Cottage property ownership… a dream that is within reach
Why the boom in vacation properties? Baby boomers are at the right age; want a place to enjoy with spouse, children, grandchildren, and for retirement. Better roads, Internet and telephone service, satellite service, and winterization expertise, means a vacation property can provide year round living and an ideal retirement home. Viewed as a solid long-term investment. They aren’t building any more lakes! Skyrocketing prices are a function of supply and demand. Vacation property market is more than lakeside cottages. Also mountainside towns and ski resorts. Lenders are recognizing the desirability and investment value of vacation property.
Second homes There is also an increase in Canadians purchasing second homes for reasons other than vacationing or retirement: 1.For children attending post secondary education, parents may purchase a home and offset the mortgage payment with rental income. 2.To give children a head start in life, especially if faced with large student loans. 3.For commuting reasons i.e. purchase a condo or other accommodation for the work week. Can therefore maintain principal residence further from work.
Financing vacation properties & second homes Equity take out from principal residence. Second mortgage. Finance the property on its own merits. Lenders look for: Well-built property, in known vacation areas i.e. with year round access and known residential areas.
