Investor's Corner - Volume 3
 
The 800-Meter Rule!

  

In today's age, people now measure their commute to work in minutes as opposed to miles. It is for this reason that improvements pertaining to transportation infrastructure and access to existing transit lines are still one of the driving variables whenever I'm analyzing a specific market/property. A rule of thumb for many investors (including myself) is that properties within 800 meters to major transit lines will always provide the biggest opportunity for above market rents and long-term appreciation. The reason 800 meters "appears" to be the magic number is because that is what "most" people would consider walking distance. This theory continues to be played out time and time again within the City of Toronto and many other cities within North America as high-rise development continues to be predominately centralized along all major transit lines. Although this is just one of many components I look for when conducting due diligence on a specific property/opportunity it is one that continues to carry a tremendous amount of weight in my analysis.

 

For more information on how I analyze properties and how you may be able to get started creating your own real estate portfolio, please reach out to me anytime at tyler@alexjwilson.com. Until next time...Live Life and Retire Early!

Vancouver

On this vacation edition Alexjwilson.com is spending time in Vancouver - Granville Island and West Vancouver. 

 

 

 

Enjoying seafood is a must when visiting Vancouver. BC has the freshest oyster, mussels, lobsters but what fun is it not to go on a fishing trip to experience the real deal? Alex did that and it was unforgettable.

 

 

 

The highlight is to meet up with James Upton - CEO of Legacy Luxury Lifestyle Magazine. He showed Alex around in an awesome mobile.

 

 


VIP vacation with VIP energy boost - Alexjwilson.com is ready to come back to Toronto to make bigger, better things happen!

New  Development

Carnaby Lofts By Streetcar Developments

 

Invest with only 5% Down - contact@alexjwilson.com for more details.

__________________

Queen & Gladstone

 

Welcome to Streetcar Developments latest project - Carnaby Lofts - located at the corner of Queen and Gladstone in the West Queen West neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

  

This project will be comprised of 2 phases and will share amenities. The first phase will be a 21 storey tower completed in November 2014 and will have just over 200 units. The second phase will be a 11 storey low rise structure attached to the tower and will also have just over 200 units.

  

Three unique features of the development:

1) The project will also have a Metro grocery store on the main level which will be directly accessible to residents via the building.
2) The project will result in a public park that will run in front of the West building along the East exposure of Dufferin.
3) The project will have a pedestrian walk way to the East of the building which will contain art galleries and boutique shops.

The units themselves will have:

1) Engineered hardwood throughout the units.
2) 9 ft ceilings.
3) Exposed concrete ceilings for a loft feel.
4) Stainless steel appliances and stone counters.

  

I rate this project a strong buy.
