June 2022 - Nuggets - Virtual Awards Celebration 2022

June 15, 2022
Two years ago. Spring of 2020. We got together at Club Roma to celebrate the sales successes of 2019 by the men and women of RE/MAX Garden City Realty. It was a gala event. Women in formal gowns, men in tuxedos. Lots of glitz and glamour. COVID had just appeared on the scene. No one at that time was aware of exactly what impact this new Pandemic would have or the time it would run. As it turned out, just one week later public gatherings were reduced in size to the point that a celebration of this type would not have been possible.

June 2022 - Money Machine - Delegate

June 15, 2022
If there were one and only one principal and practice that I could instill into the hearts and minds of real estate investors, it would be this. Learn to delegate. In fact in my Money Machine Seminars I tell attendees “if you are a plumber for example and have rental properties, when you get a call from a tenant complaining about a tap dripping call a plumber, don’t be the plumber.” Most people don’t get this. They don’t follow that bit of advice. And that fact, more than anything else, is what causes investors to throw in the towel and give up on being a landlord.

June 2022 - Market Overview - The Ambiguity of Statistics

June 15, 2022
In life, I’m a lot of things. I’m a real estate salesman. I’m a Broker of Record. I’m a teacher. I’m an investor and an investment coach. But by formal training, I’m a mathematician. I have an honors degree in Mathematics from the University of Waterloo majoring in Combinatorics and Optimization. Statistical analysis. I sort of know my way around numbers and they speak to me. But the message derived is only as good as the data from which we draw. Each month the local Board provides us with statistical data to analyze. Two, in particular, we tend to focus on. The number of units sold, and the average sale price across the Niagara Region. In this article, I’ll provide you with an up-to-date snapshot of both. And let’s begin with unit sales. There is absolutely no question the volume of sales is significantly down. Down from last month and down from last year.

June 2022 - Legal Update - Joint Ownership as Estate Planning

June 15, 2022
When considering estate planning, many believe that it will be advantageous to hold assets jointly with their children. This would usually mean either adding children on title to their home, and sometimes also opening joint bank accounts with them. This method has some advantages, and several disadvantage, which will be discussed in this article.

April 2022 - Nuggets - St. Patrick's Day Bash

April 16, 2022
They say there is no bad time to have a party. And while that may be true, it seemed to us with winter in the rearview mirror, COVID restrictions being eased significantly and St. Patrick’s Day almost upon us, that March 17th would be an excellent time for a celebration. So, we earmarked the date for our very first RE/MAX Garden City Realty St. Patrick’s Day Bash.
