 Even a seasoned landlord can forget the basics and start sliding into home base with their properties and that's when you get tagged out. I'm WAY to nice with arrears and I've had some spectacularly successful collections it's also gone the other way. That's why I hire out collections now. It's not my forte. Some of the points are pretty basic you should KNOW exactly what your proprety will cashflow (or not) before you find it. That means all expenses. Otherwise what are you buying?  It's pretty solid advice because life is full of Murphy's Law moments.... What I Wish I Knew Before Buying Rental Property - Holly Johnson  Buying the right rental properties is a challenge in itself, but the act of being a landlord is by far the hardest part. However, owning rental properties can be the k...

We're constantly looking at property prices. We sometimes play a game were we look at the location, the interior photos and read the property details then try and guess the price. It's super fun but recently ends with lots of gasps of "That's insane!"It's a buyer's market in Edmonton. There will be pricing adjustments and you'll need to decide if you have to sell or if you need THAT price. Because your house will sit longer and cost you more if you don't reflect the price the slighty flooded market is willing to pay for your property.

I’ve heard many conversations at home, events and socials where the talk varies from the Chinese economy to death of oil. Most of the conversations are gloomy, and why wouldn’t they be - it’s a gloomy time in Canada. My American friends seem more optimistic, while being cautious. Friends in the EU are concerned about terrorism and whether the UK will dump the Euro, triggering a decline. I’m sure that in your circle of friends, you’ll find different opinion...

If you have some free time this weekend you could read the 160 pages of the 2015 Growth monitoring report and Edmonton Growth study released this week.  In short Edmonton is an economic leader and is growing city with a young demographic. Over the next 50 years the city is expected to double in population. "Alberta continues to lead the country in economic growth. Its economy has grown on average by over 4% per year over the last three years and is forecast to grow by 3% per year over the next three years. The Edmonton-Calgary corridor demonstrates this economic activity having generated 60% of Canada’s overall job growth for the year ending July 2014. The Edmonton Region plays an important role in the Alberta economy, given its proximity to the world’s third-largest oil reserve. Edmont...

There are a lot of beautiful neighbourhoods listed. I have rentals in 4 of them and never have a problem renting them because they are hip and desireable areas. It depends what you are looking for, if you work in Fort Saskatchewan none of these would be great except maybe the highlands (which is also surrounded by some very interesting neighbourhoods) Some are well located in you bike or use transit but access to major routes would take longer. Ritchie is one of my favorite we lived there for a while. Such great neighbours, airport in 20 minutes and downtown in 10 minutes. It's transitioning quickly and what we bought our place for four years agos would get you a 2 bedroom tear down now.Every time I go out I try and think of a reason to go to Westmount to get a brownie from Dutchess Bak...

I got the email newsletter from CREW today. First thing that caught my eye was "How to spot a bad property manager"the article spoke of what property managers were doing wrong but not really how to spot a bad one.  Well, I can tell you from experience how to select a good one.  1. Be a tenant - call one of their listings and see how they act and answer. See how the response time works how they book showings and even go to one.  Down the street from one of my rentals a property management company had a For Rent sign up for 3 months. It was a pretty hot rental market and no need for the sign to be up that long and the property vacant that long. It made me want to pull title and give the owner a heads up.  2. Ask other investors - straight from the horses mouth.  Todd and I posted a questi...

What's happening in real estate markets outside of Toronto and Vancouver?  Edmonton "Unlike its sister city, Calgary, Edmonton’s housing market hasn’t felt quite the same pinch from falling oil prices. Sales rose 2.4 per cent in June and prices were up 2 per cent from a year earlier.Yet while home prices have so far avoided a crash, Edmonton has witnessed a different type of housing-market phenomenon this year: a boom in rental-apartment construction. " Jump here Beautiful Historic 1912 Tudor Edmonton Mansion sells Jump Oil slump hits Fort McMurray"Fort McMurray renter Richard Mayers and his family are now paying $2,700 a month for a four-bedroom home, down from $3,200.

Spring would start like clockwork on the ‘official calendar day’ and not merge, but explode into summer a little shy of three months later. The Japanese have holidays (like we do) mixed in and out of the year; some reflective of the seasons, others of religion, royalty, birth and death. I find that Edmonton shares a burst of seasonal changes as well albeit some seasons do tend to drag on (yes, winter that is you). Albertans seize the summer! When the weather is good, it's time to head...

If you haven't been downtown Edmonton in a while you should take a look. We counted more than 5 cranes working in the downtown core. The changes are exhilarating albeit frustrating for driving. The most spectacular is the new arena and the Ice District - here is an amusing video from Edmonton Journal about the name "Ice District" not quite sure about the Romulan comparison. If you think were you live is bad take a look at this JUMP (If your place is worse you need to move) Oil prices are falling and the NDP aren't going to make any Rae like mistakes in Alberta.

That seems to be the order of the day. With our new NDP government here, we quake with worry at every exhale of impending tax increases. With the federal election looming in October, we hear talk of taxes. Even in my fair city (or should I say, especially in my city…) talk of a staggered, three year (18%)  property tax increase to fund the Valley LRT is probable. Some taxes are necessary and good...

We’re no longer hearing week after week of these layoffs and all kinds of things we were hearing back in January and February,” said Hirsch. “We still might hear about more.

Talks, thought to be long dead, of a refinery, new minimum wage and royalties all make the backdrop. Calgary RE market is definitely in the slow-down cycle, Edmonton tends t...

 This will be the new norm for homes in the coming decades. It's very exciting to see it happen in Edmonton first. "A house in the McKernan neighbourhood has become the first in Canada to earn a net-zero certification from Natural Resources Canada, one more step toward making the new technology mainstream. Third-party certification means anyone buying the home can be sure of its claim — that the home generates as much energy as it uses during an average year.
