So Facebook got rid of the friend list feed, now what?
Many of our clients keep in touch with one another via Facebook but in August, Facebook eliminated the Friends feed, meaning you and I only see each other's posts if we specifically ask for them.
Here's how it works.
Conditions of overvaluation are easing nationwide and there is improvement in the vulnerability of the hottest markets.

CMHC has published its latest Housing Market Assessment and says that even in four markets where overvaluation is detected - Vancouver, Toronto, Victoria, and Hamilton house prises are returning to levels that are supported by housing market fundamentals such as income, mortgage rates, and population.more

Can your stocks or mutual funds do this?
The next Hamilton Property Tour is Nov.24th. This Wed, Nov. 14, join us for the Perfect Investment Strategy Seminar in Vaughn.
This is a unique property perfect for the investor who has always wanted to be a developer but didn't know how.
The owner has all the approvals, drawings, re-zoning certificates, etc. To turn the above 10 bdrm student house into what is depicted below: 6 high-end condos. All you have to do is have the permits re-issued, which is a simple request at City Hall. While you're waiting, the house brings in $4000 per month income.
The Owner will consider a VTB and he has all the financials ready to show costs, projected income, etc. Truly a one of a kind opportunity.
Gearing up in Brantford
A couple of editions ago, we introduced Brantford as the next place to invest.
Since then, two of our clients have bought, renovated, and tenanted there and the end result is that Brantford is slowly becoming the new Hamilton.
Although statistics aren't available for vacancy rates, etc. (up to date), in our experience, they are fast approaching those of Hamilton, as are the rents.
We are thinking of putting together a property tour in Brantford this fall and if you would be interested in attending, please tell us in the box at right. (or email me at:  We'll let you know when we're going. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
