Renting vs. buying ... Furnace & AC units

Submitted by on Wed, 03/31/2021 - 13:02
Over the past while, it's been interesting to hear some comments during the virtual events regarding folks' preferances re: rent - or purchase - Furnace and AC units. Both for principal, single family and multi family rentals. I'm getting at the stage that I'll be needing to make some upgrades - and would appreciate hearing your opinions - and why, you prefer one over the other.

CEBA loans

Submitted by on Mon, 12/07/2020 - 17:02

We have been looking into the CEBA loan currently offered. We have enough expenses and a corporation already setup.

We ran into a snag though. RBC is telling us that because we are listed as a Holding co. that we do not qualify.

does anyone here have any experience with this process?

thanks in advance!

How do you attract the BEST tenants?

Submitted by LaurelSimmons on Thu, 11/12/2020 - 22:44

Aside from good credit scores and payment history, plus the good references, I think great tenants are more than just "numbers and credit history". The overriding question is then "how do you attract and find those great tenants"? Is it making your property so beautiful that tenants love it. Is it asking the highest rent in the area? Is it providing the perks (and charging for them in the rent) that makes great people want to rent? Is it putting in a fabulous garden so that the people who are attracted to it are those who like to garden and take care of the outside?
