Hey all, investor based out of Abbotsford, BC but also have holdings elsewhere in Canada. New to the forum and interested in networking and communication with anyone based out of/investing in Surrey/Langley/Abbotsford/Chilliwack/Hope - Basically the Fraser Valley, lol.
Very interested in sharing idea's about real estate data, market conditions, strategies and general experiences as RE Investors!
Does anyone know of investor meetups for the Fraser Valley? Most I have found are pertaining to Vancouver.
Hi Isaiah, I too am based out of Abbotsford, I have a few units in Abbotsford and Chilliwack and I am exploring options for short term rentals as well. Happy to connect and chat more if you are interested. In terms of meet ups, not much going on in the valley that I have found. I have attended the Synergy Real Estate group that meets in Surrey, google them if interested, they coordinate thru Meetup.
Hi Isaiah & Dan,
I'm a newbie based in New Westminster. Just discovered this website through the book I'm reading " How to invest in real estate" by Joshua & Brandon. Any info on how and where to start would be appreciated.
Welcome to BP. There's a post by J Scott that comprehensively goes over many frequently asked questions. You can find that here : https://www.biggerpockets.com/forums/12/topics/77458-j-scotts-faq
I'd also recommend staying up to date on the BP Podcast. You'll find great reading material recommendations there and a seemingly never ending supply of information.
Also, don't be afraid to ask questions! There are so many amazing people here who clearly have a passion for educating.
Best of luck!
@Jay Avatar Welcome to BP. I live in Vancouver, Canada and invest in Canada.
BP offers excellent resources for the new and seasoned real estate investors: books, podcasts and webinars are all here for your education.
How are you finding rates/tenants on your properties.
I found rents dropped 15% and aren’t as competitive as a year prior.
Have you had to place many tenants in your properties; if so what if any application / holding fee do you use?
I know this is an old thread, but if any of you are still interested in a FV meet-up/round table please PM me! I find that MeetUp is getting pretty bogged down so we could always do a BP/bring a friend one ourselves. Let me know!
Curious if there was any meet ups that came from this group, also from Abbotsford
