Hi everyone. My name is Stephen and I am a neophyte REI from Ottawa, Canada.

I first started looking to invest in my own back yard, but found that the market was too hot, making it difficult to generate positive cash flow. Now I am investigating the U.S. looking for foreclosures that I can rehab, rent out and then refinance to get my capital back. I am open to suggestions about emerging markets, resources to find deals and sources for financing (I am pretty certain that I will run out of $$$ at some point).

Looking forward to interacting with you all and learning lots.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Look forward to connecting with everyone.

Josh you asked if I had any deals yet or had identified a market. At first I thought that I would investigate some of the sexy (warm) markets, but found that prices were a little higher for multi-family units. I was searching for duplexes, triplexes and quads. Some of the emerging markets in the north appear to have better value. I am certainly open to suggestions.
