For years, the Volition team has heard from casual investors that “Toronto doesn’t work, it’s too expensive, it doesn’t cashflow”. If you do what everyone else does, then you’ll only get the same results as everyone else. At Volition, we’re not interested in being like everyone else. We want to be better. We want to do better. We want to achieve more. At Volition, WE MAKE TORONTO WORK.

This is the impetus for wanting to share with you the natural evolution of our well-established triplex business model, Legal Luxury Fourplexes. These are an extremely desirable asset class, attract top-quality tenants, and achieve sky-high rents in AAA+ neighbourhoods.

We know what you’re thinking, and you’re right. These types of properties are expensive and don’t work in Toronto… UNLESS you create them yourself!

The numbers are big, the cash required is big, but the ROI is even bigger.

At our full-day Quickstart Investment Seminar back in February 2020 (volitionprop.com/quickstart) with over 200 engaged investors, we broke down various business models including small town investing, resale condos, pre-construction condos, triplexes and outlined the pros and cons of them.

You’ve heard us talk about fourplexes at a high level, now it’s time to dig into the nitty-gritty:
• How do you execute on a legal, luxury, fourplex?
• How much money does it take?
• What do the numbers look like?
• What are the steps you need to take?
• Who do you need on your team?
• How long does it take?
• What is the business model?

For those who are interested in this investment model, but don’t have the necessary cash (i.e. if you reached into your couch cushions you wouldn’t find $1.X MM laying around), mortgage qualification, or time and energy to do it on your own, Volition has an alternative solution for you. Join us to hear all about it.

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 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

COVID-19 presents a number of challenges and an air of uncertainty for those of us in the real estate investment sector. During these tense times, it takes a different approach to find investors and source capital
for our ventures.

Some people say: “just find a good deal and the money will find you.”
Does that ring a bell? We’ve all heard it.

Unfortunately, it’s NOT that simple. Especially right now…with such HUGE stock market volatility that have affected so many people (and their retirement savings). In reality, you need to have a bunch of investors who are already in the wings, ready to roll… and THEN find a good deal. …THEN it will work.

So how do you reach out to these investors when you have a good deal? How do you get them to pay attention during all of this COVID Pandemic stuff?

Our guest speaker this month, Dave Dubeau, firmly believes that RIGHT NOW is the perfect time to develop a strong bench of partners and investors who are looking for a good deal.

That way, when that golden opportunity comes around, you can pounce on it immediately…Because you KNOW you have their support and financial backing.

And out of this crisis there WILL be a lot of golden opportunities that will be coming up. The question is, will you be ready and able to take advantage of them? That’s why we’re hosting a special LIVE online presentation all about finding investment partners and sourcing capital in uncertain times with Dave Dubeau (Investor, Author, Trainer,
Investor and Capital Attraction Specialist).

As the Coronavirus spreads through our community, the impact to our daily lives here in Toronto is unprecedented. Unsurprisingly, we’re getting asked constantly about what we believe the impact is going to be to the real estate market. To address the urgent need for help with our investor community, we’re changing our agenda to tackle the most pressing questions about the virus and your investments. Questions we’re going to address are:

Should I be worried about the market? What will the impact be to Toronto?
How can I protect myself during the downturn?
Short term and executive rental impacts?
How will my financing be impacted?

We’re also going to discuss how to take advantage of changes in the market and how to set yourself up for future success.

We will be holding this meeting via our Zoom bridge which is limited to 100 connections, so attendance is a first come, first serve basis. Join the bridge early! In April, we’ll continue with Part 2 of our Quick Start series, so stay tuned for that!

At Volition Properties, we tell the whole story. Not just the good, but we talk at length about the bad and the ugly – because as spophsicticaed investors we’re always working to mitigate downside risks. At our last meetup, Erwin Setzo spoke in length on the dark side of JV’s and where and how they can go wrong. What about the upside? Well, Russell Wescott the JV Jedi, is making a rare downtown Toronto appearance!

 

If you’ve been living under a rock and have never heard of Russell Westcott, here is a quick rundown. Russell started from humble beginnings and didn’t have any money OR credit when doing his first deal. Now, he’s transacted over 100 properties with using OPM – Other People’s Money. He has literally wrote the book on joint ventures –  “Real Estate Joint Ventures: The Canadian Investor’s Guide to Raising Money and Getting Deals Done” – one of the best selling books on Canadian real estate investing.

 

Russell will be presenting BRAND NEW, NEVER BEFORE SEEN CONTENT at our meetup. He’s been working hard to refine, study and understand what is *the* most important skill to his massive success in the 15 years of real estate investing he’s done. He’s put together a masterclass into the world of communication. What does speaking have to do with attracting investors and other people’s money? EVERYTHING. No one is going to give you a cent unless you’re able to effectively communicate, influence and persuade. This new course will teach you the skills to take command of an audience!

 

You don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn BRAND NEW content from the JV Jedi himself – Russell Westcott!

When people think about development, they think of it as something reserved for rich, well-connected people. They envision high-rise condos, large commercial projects, or huge sub-divisions. This isn’t reality. Development can be as simple as splitting a large lot or building purpose rental homes. Most importantly, development is something the average person can work towards!

What is reality is that development isn’t easy to learn – there are no courses, no books and certainly no seminars on development. The only way to learn is from someone else and most people don’t know someone who is a developer within their network – but we’re well connected at Volition! 

On July 17th, come listen to Jin Kim, founding partner of Golden Triangle Development and learn about his journey from a regular IT guy to building a subdivision of townhouses. Learn about his use of creative financing strategies and entrepreneurial grit to go from a regular 9-5 job to running a development and renovation company!

You don’t want to miss this rare opportunity to get a glimpse into the world of real estate development!

Jin Kim is a real-estate expert and financial consultant based out of Toronto. He is the founding partner of Golden Triangle Development, where they specialize in urban transformation and infill property development.  Jin has more than a decade’s worth of experience in real estate investing and mortgage funding for clients. Prior to founding Golden Triangle Development, Jin amassed a diverse portfolio of rental properties in Toronto, Chatham, and Hamilton. 

 

Jin has a Bachelor’s degree in Structural Engineering from the University of Waterloo, a fine arts degree from OCADU specializing in sculpture, and over 10 years of professional experience in architectural IT management. Jin lives in the Little Portugal neighborhood with his wife, Celine, and daughters, Eloise, and Eden.
