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. New buildings have been dominated by smaller units which catered to first time buyers with only a few larger units on higher floors. Nobu condos will offer the space and luxury across an entire building – no more sharing the elevators with university students. Call/text 416-996-5181 or email contact@alexjwilson.com for more

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

Welcome back to Alexjwilson.com and episode 4 of my journey of growing $39,300 into a million dollars. Last week, we talked about the fundamentals of the Toronto real estate market and why it’s poised for long-term growth. I talked about this last week, because I wanted to set us up today to talk about my reactions to the Ontario’s Fair Housing Plan and it’s impacts on the market.

Today we’re going to talk about the myth of the Toronto housing bubble. I have been doing a presentation like this for years and I wanted to share this with you. This is because a lot of you may be wondering this:

“Well, Alex it’s great that you’ve made this growth but we think that there is a bubble and we see there is going to a crush.”

Well, today I’m going to talk about the long-term fundamentals of the Toronto housing market and why it is still going to continue to grow.

Number 1: Let’s talk about the economics of the Toronto market.

Hey all, Alexjwilson.com here.

I’m making my triumphant return to video.

But its not a ‘date night in Yorkville’ video.

Those days are over.

I’m a little ticked off, and I’m ticked off at you guys.

Because you didn’t listen to me.

And you guys lost out on some significant opportunities to make money.

I shouldn’t say all.

Some of you did listen to me and I’m sure you’re very happy you did.

But, the majority of you always tell me:

“The Real Estate Market’s crashing”

“There is a bubble”

“We don’t want to invest in condos”

“Condo’s are bad”

“Condo’s are evil”

“Condos were sent by Satan”

That is the thing I hear on the street from you guys.

So, I want to walk you through my journey on my first
