Event Details

Thinking about making the transition into multi-family but not sure on the first steps? Maybe you’re already looking into this type of investing but you haven’t been able to find a cash-flowing property.


Why not join us on Saturday May 12th from 9am-4pm and get a new take on multi –family strategies and learn from some of the best in the industry.


Jeff Reed from Distinct Properties has recently purchased a single-family home in the Cobourg area. He is currently in the process of making some BIG changes to this property and some BIG headline news in this region. Instead of sitting in some classroom for the day we’ve decided to do this event onsite with hardhats and steel toe boots. You will learn everything you need to know about converting a single-family home into a multi-family dwelling.


Jeff has proposed to the city that he would like to convert this heritage home to a legal 5-unit apartment complex following the city guidelines and regulations.


The House he is converting is approx. 5000 sq. ft. and built in 1904. Participate live and onsite with Jeff and the team as they walk you through step by step of this incredible transformation.


Here’s what you will learn:


  • Making the transition from single to multi-family
  • Working with the city and the do’s and don’ts
  • Understanding Zoning and the pitfalls to avoid
  • The design and architect process from beginning to end
  • Learn how to finance the construction of multi family properties
  • Learn how to analyze a deal


And much more!


This is going to be a very small setting so book your tickets now to secure your spot.


We won’t be doing this hands-on training again anytime soon.
