We have a very exciting episode today, because today I’m going to show you the road map on how to turn your initial down payment into $1,000,000 by investing in condos in downtown Toronto.

Previously, we have talked about how your principal residence has gone up in value. That’s fantastic, but the only way to unlock that value is if you sell. Since you also need to live somewhere, selling is not an option. So how can we tap in that equity?  Well, what we can do is go to the bank. We will talk to a banker who will send an appraiser to the property to give an appraisal of its current market value. The appraiser will also unlock the equity on property through a home equity line of credit.

Now, what we do with the home equity line of credit is

Alexjwilson.com presents Nobu Condos launching May 30th. Alexjwilson.com explains how Nobu condos will be filling the void in the Toronto luxury condo market. This building will cater to professionals looking for larger spaces and empty nesters relocating to the core looking for a higher standard. Over the past 5 years the demand for larger higher quality units has increased significantly and supply has remained fixed.

Hello all. Welcome to alexjwilson.com and Episode number 5 on my journey on how I’m turning $39,300 into $1 million dollars. Today I’m going to talk about rent control. Recently we had the announcement about rent controls being implemented in Ontario.

I received a lot of questions from individuals:

“Alex, how is this going to impact your buying? What should I do?”

My response:

“This is great, buy more,”

Their response:

“This seem very counterintuitive. Buy more? But I can’t raise my rents.”

Well, with rent controls your current rental properties are locked in at set rate. Tenants do not have any incentive in the short to medium term to move. This means they’ll stay in the property longer because if they move their rent
