Episode 87 - Creative Investing Strategies Understanding the Edmonton Market w/Wayne Hillier

Gary chats with Edmonton-based Wayne Hillier, host of the Real Estate Investor Dad Podcast. He has been an investor with partner and wife Gabrielle since 2013. Gabrielle leads the investment team, while Wayne primarily focusses on the podcast and mentoring, while their 5 year old daughter plays a big part of this business! They have successfully integrated their business and their family life, to ensure that the work/life balance is in check. They started with Buy/Hold, then moved into Joint ventures, then adding secondary suites, then into Agreement for sales, etc, leading to a large toolbox of strategies implemented daily, that turned into a nice portfolio. For Wayne now, it’s all about Work/Life balance and helping other investors turbo charge their entry into the investing arena!

What you'll learn:

  • Gary provides a current market update - what does rolling back to a modified Stage 2 mean to investors, and the markets?

  • The power of networking, hanging out with successful people and mirroring their successes, and learning from their failures
  • Why Wayne feels the Edmonton market is not ‘sexy’ but predictable!
  • Why Wayne focusses on cash flow - expenses, deferred maintenance, if you don’t have cash flow or a reserve fund like a normal business, you’ll have to put out your own money and potential set you up for failure!
  • Treat it like a business, even if you only have 1 property and it’s a 1 bedroom condo
  • They talk about rents in Edmonton as well, and the costs of renovations
