If you’ve opened social media in the past week, you’ve seen the headlines – “Tiny Toronto House – $1 Million!!” and “Record Falling Rents!”. Increasing asset prices and decreasing rents are not exactly the recipe for success. So, as a sophisticated investor, what can you do to position yourself to WIN in this market?
This month’s guest speaker Jin Kim, long time real estate entrepreneur, is navigating the intersection of these challenges and is using two strategies.
1. A combination of short, medium, and long-term rentals to solve the cash flow problem
2. Investing in real estate in alternative ways – (think, development and private lending)
But wait… isn’t that a lot of extra work?? Enter property management.
Join us as we dive into topics like:
· How cash flow is equal or higher (!!!) after being fully managed
· How the short-term rental market is faring during the pandemic
· General costs to switch from long term rentals to short term rentals
· The risks and downsides of this strategy and how to mitigate them
· How to create flexibility and switch between short and long-term rentals
