Real Estate Investors
Working with our team is a unique experience. We offer a one-stop solution to all your real estate investment needs including tax planning, financial planning, financing, and investment selection.
We follow a three-step process in all real estate investment consultations:
- Build an investor profile
- Design an investment strategy
- Implement and monitor the strategy
Step 1: Build your profile
No two investors are alike. You may be self-employed, retired, or expecting your second child. We need to get to know you, your unique situation, and your ultimate goals.
The first step in the process is the most critical. This is the missing link in the industry that we pride ourselves in covering.
Prior to booking an initial consultation you will fill out a detailed form that will help us gather the information we need to build a profile on you. Once complete our team will review the data, build your profile, and develop an agenda for our first meeting with you.
Step 2: Design an investment strategy
Your first meeting will include the entire team: A registered tax and financial planning specialist, an investment focused realtor, and an investment focused mortgage broker. Together, with additional input from you we will draft a preliminary strategy.
This strategy will include the following:
- Establish your risk threshold, investment horizon, and timeline for implementation
- Establish your preferred investment allocation (buy-and-hold, renovations/new builds and flips, multi-unit residential etc.)
- Establish your ability to access capital to implement the strategy
Step 3: Implement and monitor the strategy
This is the fun step! All the preliminary planning has taken place and the team is on the same page. We know what types of properties to focus on, what you can afford to purchase, and how the strategy will integrate into your overall financial plan.
It’s now time to hit the road and find your first property!
But the support doesn’t end there. Very few of our clients stop at one. Some clients have amassed portfolios exceeding 10 or 15 properties. Some clients are literally living off their annual cash-flows.
The team is in constant contact and provides continual support. All tax compliance is handled at Campanella McDonald LLP and we have open lines of communication with all team members involved with your strategy. As your situation changes so too does our advice. Monitoring the strategy is just as important as the initial implementation.
