    Working With a Real Estate Investor Focused Mortgage Broker

    Working With a Real Estate Investor Focused Mortgage Broker

    In this podcast episode, Brian Hogben from Mission 35 Mortgages discusses the current state of the real estate market and some things that potential investors should keep in mind. He stresses the importance of understanding the supply conversation and notes that there is currently a shortage of supply. He also encourages people to take action and build their power teams in order to invest in real estate.







    Brian Hogben is the founder of Mission 35 Mortgages, a company dedicated to helping people pay off their homes in less time than the traditional Freedom 55 plan. He shares his story of becoming a mortgage broker and how his company has helped so many people in their communities.







    In the interview, Brian Hogben talks about his experience as a real estate investor and how it has informed his work at Mission 35 Mortgages. He also discusses his personal portfolio, which includes a variety of properties across Southern Ontario.















    He discusses his passion for vacation rental properties. He explains that he enjoys the short-term nature of the investment and the opportunity to learn about new markets.







    The mortgage process in Florida is different than in Canada, and Royal Bank is now requiring a tax identification number in order to file an income tax return in the state.The landlord-tenant board in Florida is different than in Canada, and it is possible to raise the rent by a significant amount with only 60 days' notice.







    Brian discusses opportunities for investment in the US, specifically mentioning the potential for increased taxes and down payments for small landlords in Canada. They also talk about the current market conditions and the types of deals that are coming through their brokerage, noting that more investors are interested in flips and buy-to-rent properties.







    In the current market, mortgage rates are still reasonable, and there is still an opportunity to cash flow. However, many people are waiting to see what happens with interest rates, which are expected to rise in the next few months.







    There is a big opportunity right now for investors to sell non-performing properties and move the capital into vacant or transition rental properties. This is a good time to buy because rents are climbing quickly and mortgage rates are reasonable.







    The average person with a $500,000 mortgage has seen their payments increase by $2,600 since interest rates went up in March. This is not a large amount, but it could cause some hardship for people who are already struggling. Salemi is hopeful that rates will eventually come down again, but it is unlikely to happen in the next year.







    Investors are often advised to buy when there is little interest in the market, as this is when prices are low. However, this logic does not always apply in today's market, where high-interest rates and high debts are present. Brian Hogben suggests that instead of waiting for a crash, investors should buy now while prices are still low.







    1. Social media is playing a big role in the real estate market now.







    2. There is a shortage of supply now, due to the global pandemic.







    3. Record numbers of immigration are expected in the next 12 months.







    There is a risk right now, but if you're buying and holding for the long term, you can't go wrong. If you wait to try to hit the bottom, you might miss out on a good opportunity. Taking out equity from your house to buy an investment property is a good idea in this market.







    Brian is saying that it is important for mortgage agents to help their clients budget properly because payments are going to go up for some people and they need to be ...

    "The best investment you can make is the investment in yourself."















    Dylan Suitor is a Realtor, real estate investor, entrepreneur, and coach. He is the founder of Elevation Realty and Suitor Enterprises and is passionate about helping others achieve their real estate investing goals.







    This is Dylan Suitor's story...







    When I was 18, I bought my first investment property - a student rental near the University of Waterloo. I had no idea what I was doing, but my mom thought it would be a good way to teach me responsibility. I went on to buy a few more properties, including a condo and a house that I flipped. In 2017, I missed the market peak by a month or two and ended up renting the house out on Airbnb instead. I started educating myself on real estate investing and quickly realized that the best investment is in yourself. I joined forces with my business partner, Robbie Clark, and we started buying properties, renovating them, and flipping them for a profit. We've now built a portfolio of over 1000 units, including our largest apartment building of 88 units.

    Understanding Landlord and Tenant Issues – A Paralegals Perspective

    Understanding Landlord and Tenant Issues – A Paralegals Perspective

    The last two years have seen a continued decline in the functional running of the Landlord Tenant Board and landlords and real estate investors are having to be much more accurate in the application process and creative in their approaches to tenant issues. 







    This is increasingly requiring the need to have an experienced legal representative on your case, otherwise, you run the risk of waiting 8-12 months for a hearing, failing, and having to start all over again. 







    One such expert is Andrew Choubeta, a paralegal and fellow real estate investor. Andrew can often be found sharing almost unbelievable stories about his work in this area. However, in today's episode, he delves deeply into the various processes to be aware of right now, proposed future changes, and potential rent freezes and bylaw updates. 







    This is a must-listen episode for any real estate investor because it's not a case of if you face a tenant issue but when. 















    In this episode you will learn about:







    Changes to the interpretations of N13's and the impact on landlordsHow the Ontario rental landscape might change Using Advanced Resolution Requests to speed things upThe rental market freeze - if and when it might happenShort-term rental bylaws and changesHow landlords can protect their investments and portfoliosWhen a post-Nov 2018 rental increase may not apply.Trying to find the mystery prosecutor The express lane for N7'sIs there a solution to LTB dysfunction?

    How to Have Real Estate Fund Your Life

    People get involved in real estate and real estate for a variety of reasons. One of the most popular is to step away from the 9-5 and have it fund an enjoyable lifestyle.







    Our podcast guest this week, Michael Dominguez, started investing when he and his wife were both working well-paid corporate jobs. But as he became more involved Michael decided to go into real estate full time, the choice he had to make was either as a realtor or a real estate investor because he found he couldn't focus on both and have as much success.







    In this episode, Michael shares what direction he took, how that has helped him build his portfolio, and now how he is helping others achieve similar results through his book. He also outlines a defining moment more recently when 3 clients passed away and how that pushed him to design the best life he is now leading and where that takes him.















    In this episode you will learn about:







    Following the buy a property a year strategyChoosing between becoming a realtor or a real estate investor full timeStructuring joint venture deals Identifying quality properties in quality neighborhoodsFinding ideal tenants who will leave in 2-5 yearsPlanning and preparing for market turmoilLiving the best life after having three clients pass awayOffering tenants the option to move outNot being focused on building net worth







    Get in touch with Michael Dominguez:Website: www.armchairrealestatemillionaire.com 







    Michael Dominguez is an award-winning sales representative, a member of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, and the founder of Doors to Wealth Real Estate Group, a team of realtors focused on educating and assisting people in residential real estate. 







    After becoming a realtor in 2008, Michael realized the opportunities in real estate investing and bought his first investment property, proceeding to add to his portfolio for 10 consecutive years. Throughout his realtor career, he has completed over 300 investment property transactions. 







    When he entered real estate in 2008, Michael was drawn to people who saw real estate ownership as a vehicle for building wealth and reaching their goals. Many of his current and former clients were able to quit their full-time job, do more of what they wanted to do, and seek their passions. As an investor realtor, Michael discovered a real passion for helping others build their wealth so they can experience the choices and financial freedom they desire. 







    Michael has been named Investor Realtor of the Year by the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN) twice, as well as Canadian Real Estate Magazine Investor Realtor of the Year. He was also awarded a RE/MAX Jazz Mentorship Award. 







    In his downtime, Michael is a die-hard Los Angeles Dodgers fan and an avid traveler who desires to have as many once-in-a-lifetime experiences as possible in his life. Currently, he and his wife own 11 two-unit dwellings in Ontario, Canada.
