Was more of a serious joke. But thats just me. Im looking to gather about $50M by the time im done walking. Idea is that generations to come will never have money issues. I like what your doing though I connect with alot of your points. Currently finishing up property #9 looking to refi and head to London or St Thomas for something bigger, perhaps mixed use. everything between Hamilton and Toronto is currently becoming "uncashflowable". Running into some unexpected financing costs for commercial though. Just turned 24 with about $2.6M (gross value). You mentioned you are in your early 30s with about 80 doors? Very cool. Would you be willing to share gross value of your portfolio? publicly or privately, very interested.
Keep up the videos.
Hi - I can't tell if your joking or not. Is building up a massive portfolio your plan for retirement? Do you believe it's the better strategy vs FIRE? I understand the desire for safety, that say 30mil would bring, but the trade-off between working more for that safety - I don't believe is justified for most people. (Particularly those focused on FIRE) I'd rather risk having to go back and earn some active income, than work actively for another 10+ years - but it's a very personal decision. Thanks for watching!
Thanks Peter! Really appreciate that! I'm really excited to put part 3 together - as it will really help put into focus how little money one needs to reach a bare minimum financial independence threshold!
It would be great to have a $1m equity portfolio - but it's not a particular goal. My goal was always to have a real estate portfolio that could produce enough cashflow to sustain my current level of living. I actually achieved that well before considering quitting my job - and then started trying to develop a similar level of income via dividends. I guess I've never really delved into exactly what my income from passive sources is - likely part of the reason is simply that with the real estate income there can be significant variation month to month. I'll consider doing a video documenting exactly what my passive/semi passive income picture currently looks like and what my goals are.
Matt love your video!! Big fan and beginner real estate investor in the Niagara Region. Wanted to get your input in the best type of mortgage to use when using the BRRR strategy! Keep up the good work!!
Thanks Colton. It depends exactly on how your approaching the BRRRR - but one mortgage I'd highly recommend you consider is the improvements plus mortgage (from ScotiaBank) depending on the scale of renovations it can be a very useful tool, other situations may call for a progress draw/construction mortgage. The most important thing is to find a banker/mortgage broker that is on your side - get recommendations from other investors if you can and talk to several bankers & banks before committing. It's also important to have spoken to the bank/mortgage broker and have built a relationship well before you start looking for a mortgage for a specific property. Hope that helps!
I really like your FIRE calculator. What a simple way to see the risk of your retirement strategy. One thing I would add about investing in ETFs or buying individual equities. Right now I don't invest in ETFs, but they are a great way to invest in specific sectors of the economy that are high risk without the risk of losing your capital. You can also pay for investment advise to buy individual stocks. I do that and it is only $500 a year for very high quality advise. That is something for people to consider
Thanks Dan! Really appreciate your insights. Is there a specific reason why you don;t invest in ETF's right now? Your right - I didn't really dive into all the aspects of etf's or what they can represent (just focused on them in a broad sense) - I'm trying to keep my videos to 15mins as most viewers seem to loose interest after then so it's hard to cram everything I want into such a short video. PS. The real estate market is getting crazy by fanshawe - heard another Thurman property just sold for 350K!
