Here’s what we like the call a “catastrophic case study” used to demonstrate the importance of holding for the long term.

What would happen if you invested and property prices decreased by 25%?

Insurance for INVESTORS – “Insuring” you avoid coverage pitfalls!

Date: Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Time: 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Place: Zoom
Cost: Free

Being a sophisticated investor requires mitigating risk from all angles. This month we welcome property insurance expert Dan Tetzlaff of Hub Insurance to bring attention to common coverage pitfalls in investment property insurance.

Home insurance is typically an afterthought for most investors, and most investors typically shop around for the cheapest possible policy. Dan will bring to light how, in an attempt to save a nominal amount per month on a cheaper policy, you may be opening yourself up to SIGNIFICANT risk.

– Do you know if your property is adequately insured?
– Do you know the differences between a regular homeowner policy and an investor-grade policy?
– If your tenant destroys your unit, would your insurance policy cover the repairs?
– Is your policy named perils coverage or broad form coverage? Do you know the difference?
– Are you aware of how long your vacancy allowance period is?

A rare glimpse at current projects!

Date: February 20, 2020
Time: 11:00am -1:00 pm
Place: Zoom

Don’t miss this rare chance to see our current projects!

We typically can’t bring the public onto a live construction site, but on February 20, technology will break that barrier! We’ll be sharing tours from properties that are currently under construction and opening the floor to your questions.

Our street smart tours in the past have had a fantastic reception. You’ll learn first-hand what we look for when analyzing and evaluating a potential investment property so that nothing goes overlooked. You’ll have that extra advantage as you make your future strategic investments! You’ll also learn about the high-level construction process and how we turn an average home into an investment goldmine.

We’re going virtual for our second annual all-day Masterclass!

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

Come learn from the Volition team, Toronto’s real estate investment experts and organizers of the largest and most active Real Estate Investment Meetup in Toronto. We’ve helped clients generate $113M+ in wealth, and $10.3M+ in cashflow using these strategies and we are here to help you do the same.

Who this Masterclass is for:

  • 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, or family member 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!
  • If you ATTENDED LAST YEAR, COVID has changed the market – this is still the event for you!

What this Masterclass is about:

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 give you the confidence and knowledge to be successful in 2021!

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

  • What is the role of cashflow?
  • How can I quit my full-time job?
  • How does my real estate help me retire?
  • What is the difference between Cheap vs Value Investing?
  • How are sophisticated investors handling the current market?
  • What are the relevant factors that I should consider when investing in an area?
  • What fundamentals underpin a real estate market for long term sustainable growth?
  • What do more advanced business models (multifamily conversions, laneway housing) look like?
  • What kind of ROI can I expect and how does real estate compare to other investing methods?

This Masterclass IS:

  • A comprehensive course containing EVERYTHING you need to know to get started with your investing in 2021
  • Covering various real estate investment business models that work in Toronto, being used in 2020/21 by Volition investors
  • Your chance to learn real estate theory and fundamentals, and more importantly, how to APPLY them to the Toronto market to understand if Toronto is a market worth investing in
  • An opportunity for you to speak and network with successful investors that were in your shoes who took massive action, as well as other aspiring investors who are at the same level as you

This Masterclass is NOT:

  • A “get rich quick” scheme
  • How to flip houses for a quick buck
  • Trying to convince you that this is going to be an easy journey
  • Trying to convince you that wholesaling is easy and that anyone can do it
  • Endorsing $0 money down investment schemes or any other hair-brained “strategies”
  • Trying to repurpose US-based content or strategies specific to other provinces or small towns for Toronto
  • 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

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 so much more!

How this Masterclass is run:

  • This all-day intensive is completely virtual
  • A mix of pre-recorded content and live sessions allowing for a streamlined approach and a chance to ask your questions and get answers in real-time, without detracting from the presentations
  • An expert panel of “Real People, doing Real $#!T” – they all started from somewhere different but have one thing in common, they took massive action!
  • Special guest speakers and experts on mortgage financing from VINE Group

NOTE: This event is 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.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. “There are only two types of real estate investors out there: ones who HAVE run out of money and ones who WILL run out of money.” Let’s all be the latter!!

If you’re a Real Estate Investor, you’ll know that financing is your biggest pain in the ass (next to tenants, of course!).

If you’re a Real Estate Investor, you’ll know that every property you buy makes it harder to buy the next one (because of the 50% rental offset and increased Debt Servicing).

If you’re a Real Estate Investor, you’ll know that you’re eventually going to hit the “Financing Wall”, and then no one will lend any more mortgages to you (number of doors policy, etc.).

RIGHT?? RIGHT???



WRONG!!

We strive to solve problems, so we’re bringing in one of Canada’s top investor-focused mortgage experts to share secrets to help YOU purchase over and over again.

Jacob Perez, Partner at Synergy Mortgage Group, left his downtown Toronto tech career & scaled to 40+ Doors and Million+ Net Worth by the age of 30. In this presentation, he will show YOU how to reverse engineer the underwriting process to scale faster. He’ll cover:

– Setting yourself up for success by conducting a portfolio analysis before you start investing
– Making the most of your capital with the “BRRR Method”
– “Zero impact” properties, and how they allow you to purchase over and over at your maximum purchase price
– Refinancing multi-family properties
– What the implications are of legal vs. self-contained units
– How rental income plays a factor in your mortgage qualification
– How to win the appraisal process by mitigating risk and positioning your property to get the best results

—————————–

About the speaker:

Jacob Perez has been featured on Realtor.ca, the Matt McKeever Youtube Channel, Andrew Hines show, etc. Investing in Hamilton, ON since he was 22 years old, Jacob leveraged the BRRR strategy to grow his portfolio (40+ doors) and list of Joint Venture partners. In 2018 he began as a Mortgage Agent, partnered with Synergy Mortgage Group and opened his investor-focused brokerage which helps over 500+ investors every year in Ontario. Jacob teaches strategies to reverse engineer the mortgage process that enable everyday people to grow huge portfolios.
