What Every New Real Estate Investor Needs To Know Before Selecting A City Or Town To Invest In.

Updated: Jan 7, 2020

What every new real estate investor needs to know about selection a town or city to invest in

Cash on cash returns. 4% CAP rates. Huge ROI. City hall that is investor-friendly. Population growth. Expansion of highways. New jobs in the area…

As a new real estate investor trying to figure it all out have you ever felt frustrated and confused listening to everyone else talk about rental markets to invest in across Canada?

Is all the noise holding you back and preventing you from pulling the trigger on selecting your first property in your first real estate market?

Is all the talk about economic fundamentals draining your energy and enthusiasm to invest?

What Canadian real estate market is right for you?

If what I'm saying resonates with you I want you to know that you are not alone. I felt the same way when I first started years ago…

And many of my real estate coaching clients today have felt the same way…

There are many great towns and cities to invest in throughout Canada that you may never have even heard of before.

Just because it's not a popular place such as Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, or Montreal…

Or it does not make the top 10 best investment town report…

Does not mean that it is not a great investment to area.

For example I started investing in Welland Ontario long before it was ever popular to do so in fact many investors told me I was crazy to invest in this small little city…

And yet here we are today with many investors flocking to get into the market before the properties gets too expensive.

The properties I purchased in Welland years ago are worth two to three times what I paid for them and have cash flowed from day one.

Well economic fundamentals are important, I think it's also important for you to invest in a market that you are comfortable with. It's better to get in the game then to be stuck by analysis paralysis…

But regardless of what investment market you choose to purchase your property in it is important that you become familiar with the area…

You want to become a geographical specialist. There is no replacement for being able to walk the streets…

You can study as much as you want online but until you actually go to that area you will never get a true sense or feel for if that area is right for you.

Now here's what they don't tell you about the top investment areas the so-called “hot” markets…

If you think you're just going to go into a city such as Hamilton or Toronto and snap up all the amazing deals you may want to reconsider your strategy. I can tell you first-hand that these hot markets are crazy.

The majority of investors are focused on these areas and competition is high. Now that does not mean that you cannot invest there but it does mean that it will be much harder for you to find a deal... and nearly impossible to find a deal that cash flows.

It's just like the basic economics that you were taught in school…

Decreased supply with high demand means that property prices continue to rise!

Now you may be thinking to yourself, “but Jeff what about appreciation, do your properties not appreciate faster in the hot markets?”

Yes, that may be true but as a wise investor you do not want to bank on appreciation. You want to have strong cash flow in case of market corrections.

You do not want to put yourself and your financial future in jeopardy hoping for appreciation and then property values drop…

Just remember what happened to our american friends back in 2007 and 2008 when their property values plummeted too far less than what they owed and many investors lost everything!

Here's what I suggest…

The most important part is that you take action. You get in the game. And you move one step closer to your goal of becoming financially independent.

If you want to invest in a hot real estate market, go for it. If you want to invest in the area where you currently live because that's what makes you comfortable, go for it.

You always want to do what is best for you and what helps you fulfill your goals.

Remember that real estate is a sure way to financial independence when done correctly…

But it is not a get-rich-quick strategy, so you want to be sure that no matter where you're investing you are in it for the long haul…

Consistent focused action and a real estate portfolio with solid cash flow wins every time.
