Why don’t the banks just lend against Barrie investment real estate?

When you are looking for Barrie real estate for investment purposes, and you are having trouble borrowing money from the bank or other financial institutions, you may have to consider other options. For some, these options might include not getting their ideal house or investment property. For others, they may contact a private lender. Should the lender feel interested and believe that the venture is relatively safe, they may lend you the money. Why might the bank not lend you money, even if the investment is sound? Well it comes down to two main factors; INvesting in Real Estate

1. Traditional high street banks count ‘doors’. A door is literally how many units plus how many single family homes do you own, so if you owned a single family home that you didn’t occupy yourself and a 4 plex multi residential building that counts as a total of 5 doors (a 4 plex counts as 4 doors + the single family home). Most banks have a limit on how many doors they will lend you personally and that number can range between 5-10 for most of the major lenders. Irrespective of your own personal credit, hit the magical number of 10 and you may run into a road block. It’s possible that by gong to the commercial side of the bank that you may be able to work out some deal but if that fails then read on!

9 McCuaig, Barrie, On.

Hi world, We have just listed an Apolosa model raised bungalow in the east end of Barrie with heaps of potential. This home does require work although structurally overall the home appears to be in an OK condition. There will be work required to the rear deck to make it safe as some of the railings etc are missing. You will also need a good lawn mower as the lawns at this time are over grown and very weedy. Internally the home does offer 2 very good sized bedrooms on the upper level and an open planned livingroom / kitchen combination.Barrie Real Estate

Are Real estate seminars in Barrie & Toronto a Scam?

Maybe ‘scam’ is a harsh word, let’s say, ‘less than fulfilling’. While real estate can be a very good investment vehicle worth considering, some people are now offering real estate seminars in Barrie and Toronto that make outrageous get rich quick promises. Many people are attracted to the prospect of making thousands of dollars on properties after investing a small amount of money. You can end up investing hundreds and even thousands of dollars for these seminars that tell you there is fast money in real estate. While some seminars are legit, some are a scam….err  ‘less than fulfilling’.

The first thing I would say is that investing in the Barrie real estate market is worthwhile and has been worthwhile for a number of years. The market here is relatively stable and although you are unlikely to see amazing capital appreciation over a short period, you are more than likely going to have a steady investment. Properties here typically cash flow but only just.  Read the rest of this entry

Good morning all,

This morning the government announced changes to financing regulations for canadians. This is designed to slow the housing market in Canada, reduce borrowing / speculation, and induce canadians to save by paying down their mortgage. Like all government interventions, the intentions may be honorable but the delivery can sometimes be like chopping the patients arm off when a band aid would do. Barrie Real estate for sale
