News From Dave Dubeau

April is here and Spring is kind of here (at least out West…the folks in the East aren’t so lucky)!  This month I’m spending a lot of time with new clients from my recent speaking events out in Burlington, ON with the Southern Ontario Real Estate Investment Training Club (SO REIT).  I’m also very excited because lovely Miss Max and I are tying the knot in Vegas baby!  It’s the second time around for both of us, so we decided to ‘sort-of’ elope and get hitched without a lot of fan-fare.  I’m thrilled to be with this amazing lady, she makes my life so much more complete than it was before.  So wish us luck!

Quote of the Month 
“If you’re not going to put your money in real estate, where else.”
– Tamir Sapir
A Laugh or Two For Good Measure!
I was in a restaurant once and I suddenly realized I desperately needed to pass gas. The music was really, really loud, so I timed my reliefs to the beat of the music. After just a few songs I started to feel better. I finished my coffee, and noticed that everybody was staring at me… That was when I remembered I was listening to my iPod.

Control

         One of the reasons I like real estate as an investment (as opposed to mutual funds, stocks, bonds, GIC’s, etc.) is that it is something that I can exercise much more CONTROL over.  When buying a revenue property, I can choose the market I want to invest in (right down to the neighborhood, or even the street I want to buy in).  I can choose the type of property I want to buy (i.e. single family home, multi-family property, etc.).  I choose the condition of the property I want to buy.  I have some control over how much I pay for the property (prices and/or terms are negotiable).  I then choose what I want to do with the property once I own it.  While I own it, I exercise control over how the property is managed and maintained.  And last, but not least, I can choose from a variety of different exit strategies when I am ready to sell it.  With traditional investments, the only control you exercise is when you buy and when you sell.
