This first quarter of 2014 is almost over and I hope you’ve all been taking massive action!!!! I know many of you have as these three months have been my busiest ever and it does not help when you have a new BABY!!
Here’s Robin at the CN Tower 360 Restaurant:
It has not been easy to be a first time, new parent (though it is much more challenging for Cherry) but we’re managing and even managed to purchase another Hamilton property for ourselves. What!?! I know! We just had a baby and I ran out and bought a property??? Nuts I know but you know what’s more nuts? For a child born in 2013, the expected tuition cost for four years of university will be $140,000!
$140,000 just for tuition not including post graduate school, books, living expenses, etc…
Hence, As a new dad who can’t help but plan for the future, I knew I had to act. And there is no way, no way at all will my daughter NOT be able to afford university. Unacceptable and the thought alone makes me pissed. We actually consider the newest property to belong to Robin…. kinda funny, she’s not even three months old and she owns a house 🙂
But it hasn’t always this easy to buy investment property. Looking back there were two early “ah ha” moments when real estate investment started to click. The first was reading “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki and that was enlightening, we bought a few properties immediately after and made some pretty bad mistakes around property selection and tenant screening. Not good. But we knew deep down real estate is the best class of investment asset and we still had much to learn. Next, I read Don Campbell’s “Real Estate Investing in Canada,” immediately I signed up for A.C.R.E. (Authentic Canadian Real Estate systems) which was the best weekend of real estate education I’ve ever been a part of. I quickly learned what it took to be a professional real estate investor and that if I had been a REIN (Real Estate Investment Network) member sooner, I could have saved thousands of dollars and weeks of headaches from the mistakes we had made.
This is why I recommend for all new, experienced, young and old to attend A.C.R.E. Live this coming April 12-13th. Heck, this is my 7th consecutive ACRE event and the weekend also marks my six year anniversary of becoming a member.
This year, I have a booth so I’d love for you to stop by and say hi and because I’m a sponsor, I was able to secure an exclusive special ticket price for you and your guests – only $249 per person for the full weekend event! That’s a $134 discount off the regular public price of $387. If you are involved in real estate investing or have ever considered harnessing its power to create a long-term wealth strategy for your future, this once-a-year event is one you can’t afford to miss.

ACRE, meeting Don Campbell, reading Don’s books and becoming a REIN member was and is still a catalyst in my investing career and I want the same for you so register ASAP and I hope to see you there!
Till next time – Happy Hamilton Investing Everyone!
