If you only go to *one* event this year – THIS IS THE ONE! 

If you are new to real estate investing and don’t know how to get started – THIS IS THE EVENT FOR YOU!

If you are a seasoned investor and are looking for ways to take your investing to the next level – THIS IS THE EVENT FOR YOU!

If you have a partner/spouse/family who has reservations about your desire to invest in real estate and is concerned that it’s too risky – THIS IS THE EVENT FOR THEM!

We have jammed years of experience and knowledge into one intense day of learning. We’ve distilled 5 years of Volition meetup content down to the essentials. This course will cover THE BEST AND MOST RELEVANT content with a singular goal in mind – to have the confidence and knowledge to be successful in 2020!

 

You’ll get answers to the MOST PRESSING QUESTIONS from investors, including:

     – When is the best time to buy?
     – Where is the best place to buy?
     – How can I quit my full-time job?
     – What if there is a downturn?
     – What fundamentals underpin a real estate market for long term sustainable growth?
     – What are the relevant factors that I should consider when investing in an area?
     – What kind of ROI can I expect?
     – How does my real estate help me retire?
     – What is the difference between Cheap vs Value Investing?

 

What this IS:

     – A comprehensive course containing EVERYTHING you need to know to get started with your investing in 2020
     – Covering various real estate investment business models that work in Toronto, being used in 2020 by Volition investors
     – An opportunity for you to speak & network with successful investors that were in your shoes who took massive action, as well as other aspiring investors who are in the same level/boat as you.
     – Learn real estate theory & fundamentals, but more importantly, how to APPLY them to the Toronto market to understand if Toronto is a market worth investing in.

 

What this IS NOT:

     – A “get rich quick” scheme
     – 
How to flip houses for a quick buck
     – Trying to convince you that wholesaling is easy, and that anyone can do it.
     – Endorsing $0 money down investment schemes or any other hairbrained “strategies”
     – A theory-only seminar that only gives you high-level information about investing, but doesn’t make it relevant for you and the Toronto market
     – Trying to repurpose US-based content or strategies specific to other provinces / small towns for Toronto.
     – Trying to convince you that this is going to be an easy journey.

 

You’ll leave the session with a repeatable, risk-mitigated blueprint teaching you how to invest in real estate the right way. You’ll learn how real estate makes money, how to properly analyze properties, understand the cashflow myth, how to mitigate risk, and much more!

Come learn from the Volition team, Toronto’s real estate investment experts. We personally hold a $25MM portfolio with over 50 doors doors. We have grown our per folio and net worth using these information and strategies and we are here to help you do the same.

NOTE: this event is not for us, it’s FOR YOU.  If there are burning questions you have that you would lIke addressed during the event, please email them to info@volitionprop.com and we will do our best to incorporate them into the presentation.

Expansion plans include doubling the size of the community centre to 95,000 sq. ft., making it one of the largest in the city and expanding the park to nearly 8 acres.

With nearly 300,000 sq. ft. of retail, Galleria on the Park offers a fresh look at the retail experience to complement existing favourites. Drawing inspiration from the artisanal renaissance in the area, the planned retail reflects the original and specialty offerings that make them one of the main attractions in Toronto’s new Dupont. With fitness and lifestyle retailers, healthy on-the-go dining options and park on the premises, there’s no better place to be actively inspired.

It’s that time of the month – the FREE Monthly Online “Real Estate Investing Coffeehouse” Web Chat! Based on feedback from our clients and investors, you want MORE! More networking, more Q&A time, more learning, more community, more like-minded people, more engagement… And that a Meetup once a month wasn’t enough! Volition’s mandate has always been to remove obstacles and roadblocks… and now the REI Coffeehouse will solve this problem!

 

Why did we call this a “Coffeehouse Chat”? Because the format is simple. No format. No presentation. No script. Just an informal 1hr online web conference chat that you can log into from your computer during your lunch hour … not too much different than if you were meeting a friend for a coffee at a nearby coffee shop. Just real people with real problems, and maybe the occasional guest speaker. Send in your questions beforehand, and then we’ll chat about them and answer your questions with everyone else on the line… others may even jump in with their own input or experiences. Even if you don’t have a specific question, join the web chat anyway because you can join from your computer!! (and it’s FREE!!)

 

The REI Coffeehouse will be using Zoom.us, so have your laptop’s webcam and microphone on to join the web chat. And we’ll be screen recording it and posting each REI Coffeehouse Chat on our website, along with our Monthly Meetup content.

Laneway housing has revolutionized cities like Vancouver and it’s here, now in Toronto. If you’re not familiar with laneway housing, the concept allows the use of the many laneways, which are typically used to access garages and other spaces, and allows for housing development along the laneway. Laneway housing is important to Toronto as it allows for both gentle densification and meets the requirements of the Official Plan.

Savvy developers and seasoned investors are already starting to take advantage of laneway opportunities. Learn how to invest strategically and plan for this massive change to the Toronto housing landscape!

We have an expert in the industry, Daniel Hall, coming to teach us all the critical elements of laneway housing. During this meetup we’ll answer questions like:
– How do I avoid development fees – I heard the can cost upwards of $30k?
– How can I avoid going to the Committee of Adjustments, adding months to my planning process?
– What’s the fastest way to build a laneway house? Are there spec builds out there?
– How can I identify a potential laneway property? What are the zoning rules?
– I heard that you need to be near a fire hydrant, is that true?
– What’s the best way to get services like water, sewage, and electricity to my laneway house?
– What are the parking requirements for a laneway suite?

You don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn about laneway housing in Toronto!

You can access the Meetup slides and video here


Daniel Hall, O.A.A. is the founding principal of The Architect Builders Collaborative Inc, a progressive Architecture and Design studio focussed on delivering great green design. As a licensed carpenter, with the perspective of over 15 years hands-on experience building in addition to 20+ years of exploring architecture, Daniel ensures that our designs will be able to be built efficiently and cost- effectively. Most recently, the firm has been developing smart, eco-friendly prototypes for cost-effective Laneway Suites in Toronto. Daniel was invited to present research and designs to an audience of professional planners, architects, and urban designers as part of the inaugural Spacing School of Urbanism seminar series. He regularly provides informational seminars on the ins-and-outs of Laneway Housing.
