fumbrunnerYep, hard work doing both. Hopefully we could meet up in one of these Winnipeg meetings, if one is ever organized. Always looking for potential partners on projects!
Both my wife and I are full time teachers here in Labrador City but we use real estate investing as our hedge to the future. Like yourself, we continue to use appreciation in properties to provide the initial downpayment for properties, thus no pressure with finding cashflow properties. As you have stated, building an investing team consisting of a Realtor who "gets it", a lawyer who looks out for your best interests (well compensated) and local management teams (we prefer husband/wife combos) is a must.
I challenge you to continue to work as hard as you have done in year one and make it 2 million in year two.
scott2500Does it make you feel better about yourself when you minimize someone else's accomplishments? Sounds a bit like junior high. Congratulations Nik
housingrental It was not intended as an attack - my apologies if it came off as that - Please view my previous post as an invitation for more you to provide more information....perhaps other readers (myself included...) will be able to derive benefit from this and be able to emulate some of what you've done to apply it to our own lives.... So to ask - What have you accomplished?
