JULY AND AUGUST WILL BE HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT. VACATION IS CALLING!!!
Thursday, 13 June 2019, 02:10:29 PM

Summer is a chance for people to get away from it a bit and relax.

Whether you have a lot of money or not, hopefully there is enough to afford a little time away.

Something as rustic as camping can be an inexpensive way to recharge.

The soul benefits from a little time away from the everyday.

I for one plan to spend my time in the bush in the Algoma Region of Ontario.

There are very few people out there and the Natural Beauty always takes my breath away.

It is a good 8 hour drive from Toronto to the start of the bush. I find the drive is a vacation in itself as long as the traffic is not too bad. A tall cup of coffee, good tunes on the radio and the windows open. 

The Canadian Shield is just Spectacular!!!

Many people feel that they have to travel abroad to find Nature's Wonders. Every part of this Earth is beautiful and worth seeing but don't forget our own backyard. What we have here is just as awe inspiring.

A day's drive is all it takes!!! Toronto is not that far away from anything.

A tank of gas, a camp site or affordable motel and you can have paradise too.

After a week or so you will feel refreshed and able to get back to the everyday routine that we all must do.

Properties are getting listed.

Buyers are out there buying.

Will this all finish up for the summer?

It really is anyone's guess!

For now this is a good and balanced market!

I hope it never ends!

LOOKING TO DOWNSIZE OUT OF GTA? THE SMALL TOWNS AROUND US ARE A REAL GOOD OPTION
Posted on Mon, 03 Jun 2019, 09:18:34 AM  in My services

Many people wish to sell big in the GTA and re-locate somewhere else that is cheaper.

This is very easy to do and you do not have to go far in order to re-locate.

All around us lets say an hour to an hour and a half's drive in either direction, you will find what you want. There are many small towns out there that offer enough of the amenities needed for a comfortable and satisfying life.

I could go into great detail of all the pros and cons with this idea. I have done it here before and do not wish to cover old ground. It is enough to say that for many the plus is way greater than the minus.

If you want to do this, call me, I can help

IN NEGOTIATIONS OFTEN TWO SIDES ARE FAR APART! THE ANSWER IS TO KEEP TALKING!
Posted on Tue, 21 May 2019, 03:36:55 PM  in My services

When negotiating you often reach a point where you are too far apart and you should just give up.

The answer is to keep talking and keep listening and try to come up with a solution that is good for everyone.

Keep talking, keep trying different alternatives, keep listening to the other side's objectives, be positive,

Do not give up!!

The answer is in the words!

It is not easy to put it together sometimes, but when it happens the results are magical!

SMALL TOWN ONTARIO AT IT'S BEST!!!

This is a large unique property about .60 of an acre. Fronting on two streets and offering maximum exposure!

The property comprises two buildings and a car lot.

First building is two story and has seven residential units and five office units.

Building two is single story and occupied by a Law office.

The car lot is leased to an automotive dealership.

Building one has a solar installation contracted to Hydro One.

The property has had many upgrades over the years and should offer care free rental income for many years to come.

There are several income sources on this property and it is quite large in comparison to other alternatives.  

Definitely worth considering for someone wanting to hold money in investment real estate.

THE BUYER!!! MOST IMPORTANT PART OF ANY DEAL!!! THANKFULLY WE GOT THEM!!!
Posted on Tue, 07 May 2019, 11:42:03 AM  in Marketing strategies

In a capitalist system the buyer makes the world go round.

The buyer is the one that makes everything happen.

Fortunately we have many buyers in this market.

The current market can best be described as level and in my opinion perfect for all concerned.

The economy is performing well and providing the positive outlook the consumer needs.

Buyers are plentiful as a result and our business is doing fine.

COMPROMISE IS AN ART! CRUCIAL IF WE WANT TO MOVE FORWARD!
Wednesday, 01 May 2019, 11:20:51 AM
Tags:  

Looking back on my life whether personal or business, the best results for all concerned came about when all sides gave a bit. Good things happen when people are willing to compromise. In so doing everyone walks away with something.

In particular right now my thoughts are on a few old rental properties I own. These places are really good old homes. Emphasis is on GOOD and OLD!

These houses could do with a huge infusion of capital or even a complete re-build. 

Many times I get so frustrated and just want to call the wrecking ball.

With age I have acquired a good level of discipline and control. Thankfully I no longer act in a knee jerk way. I measure all my options and proceed with the one that makes most sense. The one that makes most DOLLARS and CENTS!

These houses are old and as a result the rents are low.

These houses continue to function adequately and my tenants are happy with them. They do everything in their powers to extend the life of the house.

By forgoing the conveniences of an up to date home my tenants pay rents that are a fraction of the going rate.

This allows me to extend the life of these properties and squeeze every last bit of value out of them.

COMPROMISE is really everyone WINS!

A SATISFIED CUSTOMER IS REWARDING, AND IN A TOUGH MARKET, PRICELESS!
Posted on Wed, 01 May 2019, 09:52:42 AM  in My services

We all work for financial gain. Many of us, if not most of us, also work for job satisfaction.

This market can be a little precarious. It is my experience that makes the difference.

Making a good deal for your client today is not a simple slam dunk.

When your client trusts you and follows your direction, wow what a feeling.

And when the best possible outcome happens and your client is over the moon, I am in HEAVEN!!!

My Clients are the GREATEST!!!

MY Job Satisfaction is over THE MOON!!!

EVERYTHING HAS A DARK SIDE! PRIVATE LENDING HAS THE DARKEST!

The stringent mortgage lending rules is making it difficult to put deals together.

The A lenders, the Banks are almost impossible to get money from.

The B lenders, the Trust Companies are very difficult and almost as bad as the A lenders.

There is a third option or a C lender. This is a private individual with money willing to lend to you. Problem solved right? Wrong!!! These folks are TYRANTS!!! They make MOBSTERS look like choir boys! They are as heartless as an EXECUTIONER!!! 

Who are these people anyway?

They could be your retired mom and pop business owner who now just lend out money.

Your buddy who is always at the golf club whom you may play a round with from time to time.

Or even one of your neighbors who never seems to go to work but does not appear to be hurting for money.

Many are simple church going people right?  WRONG!!! These people are MONSTERS!!!

They look at you like a pride of LIONS look at a wounded BUFFALO!!!

First of all they want from double to triple the going rate. They want you to cover all the legal costs, all appraisal fees and on and on. They want to give you a financial check up far more thorough than any Doctor's Physical. They want you to pay them for their time on the deal. They want a cash incentive from you on closing. The fee structure that they dream up of for you to pay throughout the term is out of this world. Basically they want you to take out a mortgage and agree to make payments but they do not want to give you any of the money!

If you let them sleep on it before you commit, they will have even more outrageous demands in the morning!!!

These STRINGENT rules are preventing HONEST PEOPLE from doing business and the above mentioned people FILTHY RICH!!!
