What we're about

How do I invest in Toronto? Isn't Toronto too risky? Isn't Toronto too expensive? How do I even find a good property to invest in?

Let's be real. There are probably over a hundred real estate investor meetups in Toronto claiming "get rich quick" or "flip/wholesale and make quick cash", capitalizing on the countless HGTV 30-min TV shows showing how easy it is for anyone to flip a house.

Volition Properties (www.volitionprop.com) takes a more pragmatic approach.

Learn how to invest to build wealth in the real estate market the right way. Investing is all about purchasing low-risk income properties, building wealth over time, and safely growing your assets so that you can create choice in your life, and enabling you to live the life you choose.

YES, AS OF APRIL 2019, THIS IS A CURRENT GROUP THAT CONTINUES TO MEET UP!! Since 2015, about 50-60 people have consistently met up each month, getting together with other like-minded investors to discuss our safe long-term strategies, getting updates on the Toronto market, learning about the Economic Fundamentals that underpin real estate, expanding our networks, supporting one another in achieving our individual life goals... and even going on Street Smart Tours to view properties and put our theory to the test against real-life case studies.

We often bring in top real estate investment subject matter experts to speak on areas of development, financing, accounting, insurance, joint ventures, raising capital, tenant laws, and real estate law (David Goncalves, Christopher Darwiche, Calum Ross, Russell Westcott, Dan Tetzlaff, Stephen Smith, amongst others). We also feature other real estate investment speakers to share their experiences and expertise (Jin Kim, Niran Kulathungam, Denise & Stuart MacPherson, Florence Lee, Jason Decourcy, Christopher Law, Teresa Almeida).

BEYOND THEORY – ANNUAL STREET SMART TOUR #5 – "TRIPLEX CONVERSIONS"!!

We’re changing the street smart tour to make it higher quality and have moved the date to June 1st. We’ll be focusing exclusively on triplex conversions, the best residential real estate investment in Toronto right now. But if you know much about triplex conversions, you know these can be complicated and difficult - but that’s where we come in! We’ll walk you through the entire process, so by the end of the tour, you should know everything you need to do in order to convert a single-family home into a cash-flowing triplex! Here’s what you’ll learn -The triplex business model and why it makes sense -How much capital is required? (Hint: It’s not for a beginner, but it’s well worth it!) -What we look for in a property. What are the key physical aspects that -make a property a good candidate? -How to estimated construction costs -Navigating the approvals process (permits, committee of adjustments, etc.) -Complete financials (ARV, rents, cashflow, and ROI) Who is this for? -Serious investors ONLY who have the ability, capital, and mortgage qualification to invest in downtown Toronto. No tire-kickers. -Registration is capped at 50 people, in order to keep the quality of Street Smart Tour intact. No exceptions. First-come, first-serve. We will be touring the following properties 1. A real-life full-gut triplex conversion nearing completion. 2. A real-life full gut-triplex conversion that is just beginning. 3. Maybe a third (subject to time and availability). We will only be taking payment for the tour ahead of time. So please RSVP and pay here on meetup.com SEE YOU ALL JUNE 1ST, AT LOBLAWS!!

**FREE** Volition REI Coffeehouse Webchat

Needs a location

UPDATE (2019/04/17): We are changing the time to 7pm. UPDATE (2019/03/05): Try to log in and join 5 minutes early. It may take a minute or 2 to download the Zoom.us application and get connected and get your webcam/microphone working. Please don't message me for tech support. I know just as much as you about how to use Zoom. Click here to join the REI Coffeehouse Chat using Zoom! https://zoom.us/j/4169375251 (NOTE: In the UNLIKELY event you are dialling in just using your phone: Dial in: [masked] Meeting ID:[masked]) This is a new format, so we are going thru the learning stages of how to best make this work this work. The mandate for this is just that I kept hearing that Volition clients and Meetup attendees just wanted more opportunities to grow, to network, to learn from each other, to get their questions answered, and to share experiences both good & bad. So… it's really informal right now. For now, I'm just going to run this as an AMA - Ask Me Anything. You can ask your questions, and either I can try to answer them or I can call upon others on the Webchat to share their experiences. Cool? No holds barred! Every question is fair game! A couple of quick tips while you're in Zoom: • Please MUTE your microphone unless you are speaking. (If we're hearing too much background noise, I may be forced to MUTE ALL to mute everyone's microphone.) • Remember to UNMUTE your microphone if you want to speak. • GALLERY VIEW allows you to see EVERYONE in the webchat. Then it's like we're actually all in the same room, just like our Meetup! • SPEAKER VIEW allows you to focus on who's speaking. • Just like in a regular Meetup… you can RAISE HAND, answer YES/NO, give me a THUMBS UP/DOWN, you can CLAP, etc. • Just like in a regular Meetup… you can ask questions by posting them in the CHAT and then we'll get to them. • I will be recording the session and posting it on www.volitionprop.com. --------------- Volition is starting a FREE Monthly Online “REI Coffeehouse” Web Chat! Based on feedback from our clients and investors, you want MORE! More networking, more Q&A time, more learning, more community, more like-minded people, more engagement… And that a Meetup once a month wasn’t enough! Volition’s mandate has always been to remove obstacles and roadblocks… and now the REI Coffeehouse will solve this problem! Why did we call this a “Coffeehouse Chat”? Because the format is simple. No format. No presentation. No script. Just an informal 1hr online web conference chat that you can log into from your computer… not too much different than if you were meeting a friend for a coffee at a nearby coffee shop. Just real people with real problems, and maybe the occasional guest speaker. Send in your questions beforehand, and then we’ll chat about them and answer your questions with everyone else on the line… others may even jump in with their own input or experiences. Even if you don’t have a specific question, join the web chat anyway because you can join from your computer!! (and it’s FREE!!) The REI Coffeehouse will be using Zoom.us, so have your laptop’s webcam and microphone on to join the web chat. And we’ll be screen recording it and posting each REI Coffeehouse Chat on our website, along with our Monthly Meetup content. We will be scheduling our REI Coffeehouse Chats thru Meetup.com (www.meetup.com/Volition), so make sure you go there and sign up to get notified of the next one! What do you think? Will you be logging on and joining us to talk about all-things-real-estate?? (1. Also, if you have any suggestions on the format, content, etc., let me know by posting it below!) (2. If you have a suggestion on the SPECIFIC TIME other than the planned 12pm-1pm, also let us know by posting it below!)
