Nicole Edmonds began investing in real estate in 2012 after graduating from The University of Western Ontario’s Biology Program. She has invested in both passive and active real estate strategies, including land development projects, syndicated mortgages, student rentals, apartment buildings, and renovation projects, often taking on joint venture partners. She was able to quit her full-time job 3 years ago and now chooses to spend her time traveling, hiking, and working on her bus conversion.
In this episode, Nicole shares how she started in real estate focusing on student rentals and then moving up to multifamily properties, which she prefers best; it generates cash flows for her every time. Not only that, she keeps herself diversified as she ventured into syndicated mortgages, land development, and even bus conversion. All these make her an active and passive investor at the same time, all giving her a good return on investment.

What you’ll learn in just 17 minutes from today’s episode:
“With multifamily properties, I started to see and I was learning and understanding that if you have a vacancy, say in your triplex, you probably only have one unit that’s gone vacant, and you’re still collecting income from two other units. So, the risk is different. It’s better when it comes to multifamily.” – Nicole Edmonds
“Even the cash flow formulas just kind of work better when you move toward multifamily properties.” – Nicole Edmonds
“When I was starting, I would describe myself as a very conservative investor because I needed to make sure that these properties were paying for themselves. The income I was making for my job and the cash I had on was not enough to sustain these properties if I had a prolonged vacancy, or if I ran my numbers wrong, or if the repairs and maintenance were higher than I had anticipated. I needed to focus on high cash flow that these properties could completely sustain themselves without me having to put money into it.” – Nicole Edmonds
“I’ve done syndicated mortgages, they’re usually short-term lending opportunities, like one to two years, and the ones that I’ve done has paid between 14 and 19% per year.” – Nicole Edmonds
“If you’ve got some fund sitting there and want to have your money working all the time, you don’t want it sitting in your bank account. Invest it out, you make 15%, maybe while you’re working on another renovation project or something, and then keep your money working for you.” – Nicole Edmonds
