Investment Properties

Done judiciously, rental properties and real estate investments present solid opportunities to grow your capital. Whether you are planning to buy property to rent out and become a landlord, renovate and resell (flip), or as a vacation rental (VRBO), we have the finance, marketing, business and real estate acumen to help you find and acquire the optimal property.

Buying an investment property is rarely a get rich quick opportunity but with detailed research and data, and solid, unbiased guidance, your real estate investment vision will become a reality. We aren’t just about the sale. And our repeat clients tell us all we need to know.

Right Property, Right Location, Right Time

Regardless of what is happening in the Calgary market, real estate is a good investment - if you buy the right property in the right location at the right time. There are advantages, and disadvantages, of buying in this market and we will work with you to determine the best types of properties for your unique circumstances. Working within your budget, Our team will source higher demand properties and help you forecast expected income. 

MLS is an incredibly powerful tool when used to its maximum capability. MLS allows us to monitor listings within a tight geographical walking or driving distance to such amenities as schools, hospitals, LRT stations, shopping, etc. Search parameters are adjusted to match your desired wish list and live watch lists alert us immediately when a property becomes available. 

Starting with the end outcome in mind is critical when buying an investment property. Determine what your goals are - are you looking for a residential or commercial space? Are you buying a home you can eventually downsize or upsize into? Do you want to own a vacation rental by owner (VRBO) or helping out aging parents or adult children? Are you interested in buying a commercial property to use for your own needs and rent out what you don’t need, or just as a source of income? The reasons to buy investment properties are almost as varied as the people who buy them.

Knowing what amenities are most attractive to potential renters is also key and we will work with you to procure a property that is livable, clean and functional, with good income potential. Once you’ve decided on a property, we can recommend improvements to increase rent potential and appeal to a greater pool of prospective tenants.  Buying an investment property is rarely a get rich quick opportunity (though it’s been known to happen) but done prudently, can set you up to achieve your goals, whether they be to help out loved ones, provide a source of ongoing cash flow, set you up for retirement (like an RRSP), or profit when the market shifts.

Investment Properties Frequently Asked Questions

There are many factors to consider when buying investment property. Availability, market conditions, interest rates are just a few of the considerations. The first step, though, is to identify what your own goals are and what outcomes you expect. Our team will help you articulate your goals and expected outcomes, and advise accordingly in conjunction with all the other factors.

Like all investments, there is always an element of risk when purchasing investment property. Understanding what your goals are is the first step in considering risk.
