Real Estate to Retirement

The road to real estate wealth is different for everyone but one thing IS the same: the journey is not an easy one.  Join three real estate investors as they share their stories of what real estate has done for them. Join: an investor with two young kids who is able to stay at home after nine years of working in a demanding job, an investor who travelled extensively and how she was able to use her experience to purchase a large vacation rental in spite of having little credit or ability to secure a mortgage because of her gypsy lifestyle and how she is designing a lifestyle that will allow to help her Mother retire; and an investor who has assisted several people with purchasing turn-key income properties and through real estate is helping raise her nephew while experiencing some eye opening experiences about what retirement can be like as she witnesses the challenges that her aging parents are experiencing. What obstacles show up and how do they continue to overcome them?

The Gap Analysis™

Best-selling author and Award-Winning Mortgage Broker Peter Kinch will be doing his Gap Analysis™ presentation, which will allow you, as a potential investor,  the ability to create more clarity as to WHY you are investing and, more importantly, what RESULT you need from any and all your investments.

The Gap Analysis™ begins with an inventory of where you are today, analyses where you need to be or want to be in the future and then helps you to map out a game plan on how to get there. It is a process of ‘reverse-engineering’ whereby you first determine what end result or goal you want to accomplish regardless of what you’re investing in. Once you know the goal, make sure that every investment action is taken with the end –result in mind so that your investment actions are consistent with your desired goals.

The ‘Gap Analysis™’ will help you integrate all your investing – both real estate and non-real estate – into an holistic financial plan focused on your goals. This will allow you to invest with confidence and clarity knowing that every action is taken with the end result in mind.

In this special session, Don will be diving deeply into the Victoria real estate market and what the future holds for investors, renters and homeowners.  Once again using the “What’s Behind The Curtain” approach that has served his thousands of clients across the country.  Often times the prevalent belief about a market turns out to be inaccurate, it seems like that may be happening here in Victoria.  Come and here what’s really coming and more importantly how to reduce your risk and increase your chance of winning in the market.
