Date: September 13, 2023

This meetup is going to be a DOUBLE HEADER featuring Matthew Lee & Ming Lim from Volition answering the single most FAQ the Volition team has been asked in the past few months is: “Should I buy NOW or WAIT until 2024?”… PLUS we’re bringing Expert Mortgage Broker Hugo Dos Reis (Partner at Vine Group) to give us an update on Interest Rates & the Mortgage Industry.


Part 1: Matthew Lee & Ming Lim from Volition Properties

“Should I buy NOW or WAIT until 2024?” We will reframe this question that is on everyone’s mind, cut through the noise, and give you the real story of what’s happening in the market. We’ll dive into topics and recent developments including:

  • Interest Rates & Inflation & Market Psychology
  • Fallout of Sept 6 Bank of Canada Rate announcement and predictions of Fall Real Estate Market trends
  • What is happening to Rents?
  • “OMG I’m cashflow negative on an existing investment property, now what??” Strategies for dealing with negative cashflow.
  • How do I know if this is a good time to BUY my primary residence / investment property?
  • How do I know if this is a good time to SELL my primary residence / investment property?
  • Examples of solid investment opportunities
  • Examples of primary residence opportunities

MORE IMPORTANTLY… We will be talking about WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING AS AN INVESTOR to be successful in the current volatile environment. As with everything we do, Volition doesn’t just read and regurgitate headlines, we will go deep PAST the “research & analysis” that any monkey can do, and actually SYNTHESIZE this into meaningful, actionable strategies and tactics in order to mitigate risk, boost cashflow, and build sustainable wealth.

Toronto has never been an easy market to invest in. Beside Vancouver, it is probably the single most challenging market to invest in in Canada. Volition makes it viable and achievable. We Make Toronto Work!
