Event description


Real Estate Investor Mastermind Event

Join us Thursday, November 14th for a unique real estate event in Calgary. Our Real Estate Mastermind Events are designed to create a constructive environment for real estate investment discussions, combined with valuable presentations and excellent networking opportunities.

Our Topics for November will be:

Developing a 5 Year Real Estate Plan

(Panel Discussion)

When surrounded by successful real estate investors, it can sometimes be difficult to imagine your own real estate portfolio reaching the levels of success that others have already attained. However, if you start asking more established investors how they built their portfolios, you will often hear “One property at a time”.

Our panel discussion this month will be focused on how a simple, step by step approach to growth can gradually and eventually build up a portfolio that may be well beyond what you can (currently) imagine. The Collaborate Team will provide valuable perspectives on looking at the “big picture” and how simple changes in your thinking can make a significant impact over time.

This discussion will include:

- Why a “Slow and Steady” approach can really pay off over time

- How coming up with ONE down payment can build a large portfolio

- Important things to consider now – for your properties 5 to 10 years in the future

- How long term tax planning can play an important role in your strategy

- Why a long term vision is important in adjusting real estate markets

- Long term financing considerations for multiple strategies

- And more!

Flipping Properties in Calgary’s Current Market

In fast paced, rising real estate markets – a steady flow of new investors will often take a shot at flipping properties for a profit. With appreciating property values playing a big role in these “successes” – many inexperienced people have entered this space, made a great profit, and given themselves a nice pat on the back for being a great investor!

When property values are NOT rising steadily simply due to market appreciation, it takes a much more detailed approach to successfully flipping properties. In today’s real estate market in Calgary – making a healthy profit on a flip requires careful attention to details on many levels. However, if done properly – large profits in short time frames are still possible – IF you know what you’re doing!

Our feature presentation will be delivered by Jesse Bobrowski and Garrett LaBarre from Calvert Home Mortgage in Calgary. Calvert Home Mortgage provides a unique flip financing program that allows real estate investors to purchase a property with just $10,000 down and is able to complete in house After Repaired Valuations within 24 Hours (at no cost) to determine if a flip is likely to be profitable.

Calvert has worked with flippers for over 30 years and have learned a lot from those who do great at buying right, renovating for the market and on budget, and selling quickly. They truly are committed to the success of their clients and wish to support them in being profitable on each and every flip.

This detailed presentation will include:

- the importance of knowing your numbers

- understanding renovation costs

- drilling down to the (real) final numbers and profits after holding costs, realtor fees, taxes and/or GST if applicable. (Calvert has created a “Flip Analyzer Spreadsheet” which takes into account all costs of a flip to determine if it is likely to be profitable. Calvert is more than happy to provide this spreadsheet to all attendees.)

- which communities or areas in Calgary offer the best opportunities for flipping in the current market and making a solid profit.

- case studies that show how you can make money even with a higher interest rate on short term loans. (Up to $40,000 profits in less than 3 months!)

- the best and worst renovations to spend money on (and how to get the best bang for your buck)

- And more!

What are Recent Event Attendees Saying About Our Events?

"It was totally refreshing to be at an event that was truly focused on education - and not focused on selling anything. I met several excellent people at my table and learned some new ideas from the presenters that will definitely be helpful in the future. I was very pleased with the professionalism of the entire event and I am definitely planning on attending again. It was great! Thank you for setting this up!"

"I would just like to thank you and your team for putting on a great event last night. The speakers and topics were very interesting and well presented. I really think you have collected a great group of people to come together, and I look forward to the next event."

"The event was excellent! I was hesitant to go initially (because I was expecting a big sales pitch like every other real estate event I attend) and to my complete surprise - it never happened! I was really pleased with the quality of the presentations and I learned some great ideas from both speakers. I also met some very experienced investors who were great to learn from - and that in itself was eye opening and very valuable. I will definitely be attending again and I'm really looking forward to it!"

Join us for a great real estate networking opportunity.
