Everyone’s A Winner!

Posted by on Dec 4, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

A sometimes pervasive element in society that has a far reaching effect on our progress is the “Everyone’s a Winner” attitude. You know the one. Children get an award for “participation” even if they come last in a race with thirty others. Somehow, parents and teachers feel that by coddling our children and getting them to believe that it’s good just to participate that this will prepare them for the rigors of business and life. Perhaps they fear for the child’s sense of belonging. While it is good to participate, winning is better, and it’s measured. Not sure where this attitude got started but telling children in their developing years that it is ok to just be a participant, is really limiting the child’s opportunity to learn how to compete, and how to lose or win, graciously. It’s certain that all of the luxuries...

Making a Difference with Real Estate

Posted by on Nov 6, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

The basic premise for anyone who invests in real estate is to make money and secure wealth. But there is more. Beyond the cash flow, appreciation and ROI there is the intrinsic need to provide accommodation. There will always be those who rent a house or apartment as opposed to those who insist on buying. When it comes to condominiums just over one quarter (¼) of those living in condominiums in Canada, are renters. The 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) showed that 1,615,485 households (12.1%) lived (either as owners or renters) in condominiums. Of these households, 1,153,580 were owners while 461,215 were renters. That’s a lot of rental income. (At an average of $1,000 per month = $461,215,000!!!) And that’s just the condominiums. Demand for rental income continues to grow and is driven by population gains as well as by...
