Opportunities in London for Student Housing
Through an associate in the London, Ontario market we can now offer some great investment opportunities in Student Housing.
We have been doing it in Hamilton for the past 15 years and London has always been the only other location we would consider, mostly due to municipal rules and regulations.
Here is a list of current properties available. Use the box at right to contact me if you would like to learn more..
This is a unique opportunity to purchase development land and have it cash flow while you are obtaining permits, rezoning, etc.
Currently a 7-bdrm student residence (it is directly across the street from Mohawk College's Industrial Campus) bringing in $3300 per month.
But it sits on a lot that is 75 x 173 in a highly commercialized residential area, with quick access to highways.
Suitable for 4-6 townhouse condos, the property lends itself to higher use, though at this price, there is strong argument for maintaining it as a student residence.

Monthly Property Tours a great introduction to markets
Each month, Venture Investment Properties holds a house tour in one of our investor cities. On Sept 28th, we were in Hamilton. The group is getting larger each time and is a great way for newcomers and veteran investors alike to introduce themselves to the marketplace without any pressure from agents, etc.

Often you find the house you want right then during the tour, as happened on this tour when one couple put in an offer that night!
