Key Takeaways:

“So the bigger, the better. This being said, beggars can’t be choosers. There’s always an opportunity cost. Even a small 10 sweeter will make you money. Just sit on it long enough and you’re in a reasonable market. You’ll pay your principal down and the property will appreciate, then you’ll get a bit of cash flow and you’ll always make money. But the more units within the building, the more money you make. There’s no doubt about it.” – Pierre-Paul Turgeon

“Apartment buildings are a lot less labor-intensive because when you crunch the numbers, you got two operating expense items, one for a professional property manager and one for the onsite manager. So they’re the parties that handled the hassle of being a landlord. All right, so more, more time to myself.” – Pierre-Paul Turgeon

“To me, real estate investing is like a recipe and you can have a fairly predictable outcome as long as you really do your homework and do your assessment and evaluation of the asset of the market and all that.” – Pierre-Paul Turgeon
