After training as an international professional athlete for 15 years Sarah Eder took the first steps in real estate by helping a highly successful property management investor manage over 150 doors. This investor was also a master at joint ventures so when Sarah was not in a position to get her own mortgages she still had the confidence and knowledge to be able to raise over 7-figures in real estate investments in a little over 3 years. 

Guest: Real Estate Investor, Sarah Eder

After training as an international professional athlete for 15 years Sarah Eder took the first steps in real estate by helping a highly successful property management investor manage over 150 doors. This investor was also a master at joint ventures so when Sarah was not in a position to get her own mortgages she still had the confidence and knowledge to be able to raise over 7-figures in real estate investments in a little over 3 years. 

Now as the owner of Sarah Eder Investments, she is using a more complicated joint venture approach to not only focus on more traditional 50/50 flips, but also multi-family properties and larger-scale developments and commercial conversions that require more than one JV partner.  

With the mind of a savvy, socially connected millennial she uses an innovative approach in looking at the real estate investing world differently than most and is able to find 50% of her JV deals through social media, where she is very active. 

Now a full-time investor, coach, and mentor, when not developing innovative ways to raise capital, she is mentoring others on how to successfully use joint ventures. She has been on multiple stages speaking about these topics and her success has been recently featured in Canadian Real Estate Wealth magazine. 

You will learn about:
– Tips on structuring deals
– What is VTB (Vendor Take Back) Mortgage
– Raising capital tips and strategies
– How to find money partners and deals and what you need to know

Guest: Real Estate Investor and Landlord, Britta Hild

Britta started in the world of real estate investing in 2011 purchasing a 5 unit building in Toronto. Having only previously bought a primary single unit residence she was unprepared for the added work to close the deal and handling the day to day life of a landlord. She quickly learned about property management, renovations and tenant relations through doing these tasks on her own.

These early real estate investing challenges did not deter her, rather they served as great lessons for Britta when she pursued a subsequent joint venture in Hamilton with another multi-unit property because of the benefits of having more doors in one building. 

The current market in the GTA is changing rapidly and it is essential to have a plan in place to make sure that your real estate investments are working for you and not the other way around. This was brought home in a very stark way for Britta when her mother fell seriously ill and she was able to look after her full-time knowing her properties were cash flowing. 

Never one to tire of talking about real estate investing, Britta understands the concerns, worries and benefits of being a real estate investor and landlord, from financing to renovations to tenants. 

You will learn about:
– Benefits of having multiple tenants
– Tips on how to overcome your real estate investing struggles
– Tips on building a solid team
– What new investors should be aware of
– Tips on finding and screening tenants

Top 5 Things You Should Know as a Young Investor:

 

Even thinking about investing after just finishing school can be scary.  Slow and steady wins the race so do not ignore getting started; 

1. Investing should be fairly boring and is a slow game. 
Avoid trying to get rich quick as it almost always backfires. Instead, pick simple tried and tested strategies and stick to them for the long run. Avoid the new craze and stick to what works. If you can’t explain the strategy to a 10-year-old, pass on it!
2. You will need more than one source of income if you want to become wealthy (At least 2-3 sources)
Most millionaires have 3-4 income sources. In 2018, you can no longer just rely on your job income. One day your job may be sent overseas, they will have the technology to replace it, or you may get sick and no longer able to work or have to take care of a family member. My favourite income sources are, investing in dividend stocks, real estate investing for cash flow, and starting a side hustle.
3. Real Estate Investing is not often suggested to you because Financial Advisors don’t make money suggesting that route. Banks also make more money by selling you their mutual funds.
Most advisors are commission based, meaning they get a percentage of your total invested assets each year. Telling you to take that money out and buy real estate would eliminate their income. Real estate investing has created the most millionaires than any other strategy. Learn and educate yourself and add real estate (hard assets, not REITs) to ensure proper diversification and to create more “passive” income.
4. You will waste so much money on fees by investing in mutual funds. Look at ETFs instead and self-manage for fees of <1%.
Management expense fees and commissions to pay the advisors and traders are a huge waste of money when it has been proven that investing in index funds outperforms actively managed funds. Better yet though, start learning about ETFs and use a self-directed account for the lowest fees.
5. House hack your first home instead of buying the biggest house your salary can afford you
Buy a duplex or triplex, live in one unit and rent out the others. You will have your renters pay off your mortgage, costs of living and often can end up with money in surplus. Use that to accelerate your savings. Once you have enough, rent out the unit you are living in and buy another house and rent out the other units. This is a quick way to wealth most don’t or won’t do.
