Live Real Estate Investing Event in Calgary, Nov 17: Our New, All-Day, Dig-Deeper AFS Intensive Focus Workshop.
Anyone who follows this blog knows that I love Agreements for Sale (AFS)! It’s a seller financing strategy that is so, so relevant in today’s tough Canadian real estate market. AFS is a classic way of buying property with very little money out of your own pocket. On November 17th, we’re running a special AFS Intensive Focus Workshop, featuring comprehensive tools to help both new and established investors achieve financial success. Continue reading →
Registered Funds Are an Alternative Mortgages Goldmine.
This Canadian real estate investing video is an edited recording of a live webinar for participants in Barry McGuire’s Rapid Cash Program. The topic is how to use the funds in a registered investment (e.g., RRSP, RESP, TFSA, etc.) as an alternative source for a mortgage. Whether you want to be a lender or a borrower, there is lots of money out there—if you know how to find and use it! This video provides in-depth discussion from experienced registered fund lenders and borrowers.
In this second instalment of a two-part series on flipping properties in Canada using Assignments, lets chat about some of the details. Knowing the details will give you a much better chance at a successful Assignment. If you missed Part I, you might want to read it first.
Contracts of Assignment, usually just called an ‘Assignment,’ are useful ways of making money with real estate. I’ve talked about them before (e.g., this blog and this video), but they’re worth revisiting in more detail because of their significance to the Canadian market. Sometimes known as ‘flipping’ a property, this is Part I of a two-part series on how Assignments work, with a focus on Alberta real estate.
This 30-minute video is a hands-on introduction to real estate investment in Canada using assignments. I’ve posted about this topic before (e.g., podcast and blog), but this video focuses on the practical side of this creative investing strategy. Watch it to get a definition of assignments and the basics of how they work from a legal perspective, then try an exercise and review case studies showing real life examples of deals using assignments.
“Flipping / Assigning Properties? Don’t Go To Jail!”
Not too long ago, I wrote a blog post about the legalities of flipping properties using a Creative Investing Strategy called “assignment.” Now I’m making that topic available as a podcast because I want Canadian investors to have every opportunity to make money without getting on the wrong side of the law. In a hot real estate market, flipping properties by assigning your interest in the purchase can be lucrative. Just make sure to do it legally because the CRA is cracking down on so-called “shadow flipping” and undeclared income!

Is an Assumable Mortgage the same as an Agreement for Sale?
