In Saskatchewan, it is often hard to find Real Estate Investing educational events...and I'm not talking about the 2-hour 'sell-you-something' infomercials at hotels. I'm referring to an actual forum where people can meet other like-minded real estate entrepreneurs and receive an abundance of information and mindset training.
The PPREIG spring Real estate forum was just that - A great learning atmosphere, filled with people of eager mindsets wanting to expand their context. The variety of speakers Global REI Education was spectacular.
One of the first speakers for the day was Pierre-Paul Turgeon, who spoke about Multi-unit Investing. He was an intriguing speaker with great energy! Have you ever wanted to own an apartment complex? Do you know how to get one without any of your own money? He gave the audience his perspective on how to do that!
Then Adrian Leusink of Tamco Homes gave a presentation about the key economic drivers of Saskatchewan. He provided information about all of the market stats and projections for Saskatchewan. Do you know what percentage of Saskatchewan economy is Agriculturally based? Oil and Gas based? Service Industry based? Mining based and so on? Knowing these stats are crucial when planning your businesses direction.
The second day also consisted of people presenting real estate offers and business plans for potential investors. Some of the investment opportunities were as little as $5,000.00. Did you know investments of $5,000.00 into real estate even existed?
The final speaker was Shelley Hagen of Di-Rae Development. Shelley is always one of my favourite presenters! Her overall knowledge of real estate investments is so immense. Do you know the difference between a Vendor Take-Back (VTB) or Agreement for Sale? Did you know these options exist in real estate? Shelley Hagen will be teaching a weekend class in Regina on Creative Finance in September 2016 and a Wholesaling class in November 2016 in Saskatoon - You can learn all about VTB and more! See you there.
