Vancouver investors are finding it hard to cash flow condo investments.  That’s driving them to markets such as Calgary where rents and pricing makes sense.  Alture Properties’ new project at MidCity has been nearly sold-out to Vancouver investors looking for yield.

Below are the CREB’s latest market stats for Calgary.  You will note the market is showing price growth and increased sales activity.  Also, “days on market” has come down significantly.  While listings are up, demand is absorbing it well.  

So, the Calgary condo market is on fire; what does this mean to you the income property investor?  Well, Calgary has the lowest vacancy rate in the country, economic activity continues to support growth, and guess what?  If you had bought one of our MidCity Midnapore 2-bedroom condos with 10% down you’d have already DOUBLED your investment for 100% ROI.  What’s not to love?

It’s not too late; we haven’t raised prices yet. but we surely will if this price growth continues at this pace.  Contact us for more info by emailing us: clientcare@wealthminds.ca

VANCOUVER INVESTORS HAVE FIRST OPPORTUNITY TO INVEST IN CANADA’S FASTEST GROWING MARKET THIS SATURDAY

BY VANCITY BUZZ STAFF | 8 MONTHS AGO | SPEAK UP

On Saturday, November 23, Alture Properties, a Vancouver based award-winning investment real estate firm, will be launching their latest residential project – a new condo development in Calgary especially designed for real estate investors. Vancouver investors will have first opportunity to purchase units in the project before Alture’s Calgary launch.

Alture

Invest in Canada’s #1 city for investment properties!

The new construction of 57 unit investment condos are located in Midnapore, a suburb 25 minutes south of downtown Calgary (far from Calgary’s flood zone). With two transit stations, shopping, schools and amenities all within walking distance, Alture MidCity boasts an impressive Walkscore of 77.

The project near Calgary addresses serious rental needs. Current rental vacancies are under 1.2 per cent in most areas, following this summer’s horrific floods that forced thousands to leave their homes in Calgary’s downtown core and surrounding areas.

Prices for Alture MidCity start at $173,900, with each unit generating a positive cash flow.

All purchasers at Saturday’s presentation will receive a free round trip airfare to Calgary and free property management for one year.

Attend the Alture MidCity launch event to learn how to earn secure predictable passive income with real estate and discover all the benefits of investing in Calgary.

Alture Properties Wins Rein Player of the Year 2012

Big Strategy, Big ProfitsHe only discovered the potential of property a few years ago, but Peter Cheung has already achieved great things, including a deal that netted him and his investors over $1 million in profits – without ever taking possession of the building! “I am so honoured to receive this award – it feels so great to be recognized for my past efforts and I get to share the glory with my wife and the team,” Peter says of winning the title of Inter-provincial Investor of the Year at the Top Investor Awards. It’s especially rewarding, considering the fact that Peter only began investing in property in 2007. “I had purchased and upgraded my own homes several times since 1992,” he clarifies. “But it wasn’t until 2007 that I looked into investing into real estate as an investment vehicle for myself to build wealth.” Read More
