What you'll learn in just 17 minutes from today's episode:
"When you were seeing Toronto average prices, it was really a tale of two cities where you're seeing downtown continue to grow and expand in price, but uptown, not growing at nearly the same sort of rate. That's why it's really important not just to be an expert in whatever city you're investing in, but an expert within the neighborhoods within that city." - Ming Lim
"A lot of times people are looking at the property, and then figuring out the tenant. And that's the wrong way to do it. As a business, you don't design the product and then figure out who you're going to sell it to. You're trying to figure out what your customer is? What do they need? And how can you fill that before you go and create a product and investing is no different." - Ming Lim
"The idea here is, in a higher growth market, crazy expensive market, let's call it you have the opportunity to buy a property, at10% growth, you only need to wait about two and a half years before you've built enough equity in that property through appreciation and mortgage pay down to refinance, do an equity ticket and go buy another life property." - Ming Lim
"How do you get those higher rents, and this is where you start hearing about things like renovictions, these big tenant advocacy groups start getting involved. We bypass all of that by just focusing on an inherently transient tenant profile right from the get-go." - Matthew Lee "Transit is the single most desirable feature to help you determine where to buy." - Matthew Lee
"When you're thinking about where and what to buy, we need to start thinking about expanding our criteria and broadening our thinking a little bit in terms of what is it that our renters want." - Matthew Lee
