Closing the Deal – Part 2- Unforeseen Costs

As a full time Canadian real estate investor, we must be creating massive and passive income by facilitating many types of deals. We have to fully understand the scope of every deal, have the capability to analyze it fully and make informed decisions as to the proper exit strategy.

Whether we are purchasing a property for ourselves, for a joint venture project or have the property under contract to assign, we must be able to outline all potential expenses pertaining to the acquisition. Closing costs are a necessary part of the expenses.

This is  a continuation of "Becoming a successful Full Time Real Estate Investor."

Becoming a full time real estate investor means creating opportunities for ourselves on a regular basis to build massive and passive income for ourselves, just like a regular business would.We need to set it up so we can get paid on a regular basis.

We need to do things differently than what amateur “conventional” minded real estate investors do. From my experience, the average real estate investor uses his/her own money for every stage of a property purchase. They continue to put money into a property that is being used for the typical uses such as flipping that property or holding that property for appreciation. Both these “strategies” end up buying us a job in becoming a landlord or a renovator, and both take way too much time!

The Benefits of a Real Estate Coach / Mentor

Becoming a full-time Canadian real estate investor is not something one should take lightly.  The amateur real estate investor will commonly go out and buy a property, make mistake after mistake and end up costing themselves lots of money and time.

Mortgage Jargon – Part 2

Mortgage Jargon – Part 2

If you missed the previous article – Mortgage Jargon – Part 1

We will continue in our series on mortgage jargon. Many of these references should or will soon become apart of your language in real estate investing.

Total debt/service ratio

This ratio is calculated by your mortgage broker. This is a standard by most lenders which states that no more than 40% of your gross income can be utilized to service your property. Your total debts are principle interest, property taxes, heating, 1/2 condo fees, plus all other monthly obligations, such as credit cards, leases, loans, lines of credit, etc.

Switch

This term applies to changing lenders at the end of a term. When a mortgage is at the end of it's term, or coming to the end of it's term, another lender may pay the costs of switching over to their company. This means that if there is a mortgage penalty, the other lender may pay that penalty for you to break your mortgage and move the mortgage to them. They may also offer you a reduced rate to come to them from a competitor.

Cap rate

A cap rate is a calculation that is used mostly in the commercial side of real estate. The the fair market value is divided into net operating income (rent minus expenses, not including mortgage). Capitalization rate is essentially a percentage calculation that is better when higher. The higher the result, the better rate of return.

Closed Mortgage

A closed mortgage is closed for the term, usually 5 years, but it can be anywhere from 1-5 years. It cannot be paid out unless there is a penalty involved which can be discharged at a cost of either three months interest, or an interest rate differential.

Interest Rate Differential

The IDR is a penalty for an early pre-payment of all or part of the mortgage outside the normal payment terms, or even pre-payment terms. This is calculated as the difference between the existing rate and the rate for the term remaining, multiplied by the principle outstanding and the balance of the term. For example, if the mortgage balance is $100,000 at 9% with 24 months remaining and the current 2-year rate is 6.5%, the different between 6.5% and 9% is 2.5%. The interest rate differential is $100,000 outstanding mortgage, times 2-years times 2.5% will equal $5,000 dollars.

High Ratio Mortgage

A mortgage that is greater than 80% loan to value(LTV). What is loan to value?  It is the ratio of loan compared to the value of the property. For instance: if the mortgage was a 70% loan to value on a $100,000 property, the value of the loan would be $70,000.

Equity

Equity is the difference between the value of what you can sell your property for (or fair market value), compared to what is owed against it. So the more equity in a property for a real estate investor, the better.

Turning a Tenant Into a Buyer

Turning a Tenant Into a Buyer

As a full-time Canadian real estate investor, we must create various forms of deals to be able to build massive and passive income for ourselves. The way we do this is a continuous stream of income that is produced by short-term holds; creating deals without using any of our own money or incurring any liability, as well as building our portfolio with long-term holds. The latter does not always mean being a landlord. There are many other ways of creating long term holds with monthly income and a very nice backend return.
