Top 10 Investor Mistakes and How to hire a Property Manager

With the cost of investment property continuing to rise many investors are being forced to look outside of the Ottawa market to find those Cash-flowing deals!

This month we will be talking about the Top 10 mistakes almost every new investor  makes when starting out, and will be sharing our stories from the trenches and the lessons we have learned.  In addition we will teach you what to look for when hiring a property manager to oversee your out of town properties, and discuss the pros and cons of self-management.

Stilettos & Hammers is a group of Modern Women who are here to assist each other through the Journey of Real Estate Investing by sharing their knowledge and personal experience, we appreciate and encourage your active participation at every one of our meetings and look forward to seeing you next month.
