Real Estate investing is absolutely a passion of mine and I consider myself a Real Estate Entrepreneur. My wife and I have been investing in Real Estate since 2007 and have learned many lessons along the way! To date, we have focused on long term wealth creation utilizing buy and hold strategies. This has been the core focus of our overall wealth building strategy.
I am an active member of the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN), which is a network of Real Estate investors focused on investing into the Canadian Real Estate market. REIN has been around for over 30 years and is focused on education and sharing knowledge. To date, its members have created over $5.3B in Real Estate wealth. It is amazing to be part of a community of like minded people that share a passion for Real Estate investing, with a focus education and knowledge sharing.
For me, this is still one of the most influential books I have ever read. This book is focused on building financial intelligence and an understanding of money. Mindset is everything! This book is a great foundation to open your mind and prepare it for learning how to invest in Real Estate.
This is the most recent book we have used to take our investing to the next level.
An excellent book by Don Campbell. Written in a story format, it is easy for anyone to understand and lays out clear steps to follow to accomplish your goals. Don donates 100% of the his author royalties to Habitat for Humanity and was a co-founder of REIN.
This is the first book that I read on Real Estate investing back in 2007. It helped to lay the original foundation of our Real Estate investing portfolio.
Another great book written by Thomas Beyer. This book is filled with words of wisdom and experience from a successful Real Estate Investor. Thomas is also an active member of the REIN community.
A great niche book written by Rachel and Neil Oliver who are Real Estate investor's in Canada and also REIN members. This gives a comprehensive overview of the Rent to Own investment strategy.
