Commercial Real Estate Investment Coach - led by Shane Melanson, is a community of tools and resources for Canada's top real estate investors.
If you already own several investment properties and are looking to move to 7 and 8 figure commercial properties, then this was designed specifically for you.
For the past 12 years, I've helped real estate investors transact more than $260,000,000 in income producing real estate. Some clients have been able to replace a 6 figure income with a single property.
There are three ways I can help you generate passive income while working less. Which would you like help with?
No Longer Rely On 1 Source of Revenue
Resources to help Real Estate Investors get to the next level.
Relying on one source of income is risky. Owning assets, like single family rentals (SFRs) is a good place to start to add additional streams of income. But for many entrepreneurs and professionals earning mid 6 figures, they quickly realize to replace $200,000/year in income, they'll need to own 50+ rental homes. They hear about Commercial Real Estate Investments. But, where to start? Who to trust? What is the process to start investing in apartment buildings or industrial properties?
3 Steps to Grow Your Real Estate Portfolio & Retire Early
Step 1. Your Plan - we help you get clear on how much passive income you require in retirement.
Step 2. Your Roadmap - We design a custom investing playbook. Based on your time, capital, risk tolerance and experience.
Step 3. Execution - Get the skills, tools, community and ongoing support to take the appropriate actions. With a clear roadmap - now it's time to take action.
I started like many real estate investors - buying and fixing up single family properties, finding tenants to generate a few hundred/month. When the Calgary market was appreciating 5%/year - my portfolio looked good.
Back then I was working a fulltime job and managing multiple properties. I didn't have a family. So working long hours and weekends didn't bother me. Fast forward, today, married with 3 kids- I wanted more time to be with my family. The goal of investing in real estate was to give me freedom- not a 2nd low paying job.
In 2008, I partnered with my father-in-law, a 40 year veteran developer and commercial real estate investor. He taught me how to invest in 7 and 8 figure commercial and multifamily properties.
- The importance of market timing.
- How to secure capital (both debt and equity).
- Who you need on your team to help you.
When I started, most of my clients were REIT's, Pension Funds and Wealthy Families. Once in a while a physician, engineer or business owner would ask me to help them buy a apartment, retail or warehouse building. It was in helping individuals making the leap from single family to commercial where I saw a major gap in the market.
Commercial transactions are complicated and require guidance for new investors. But no one was offering that. The Commercial world is a tight knit group of insiders. Helping new investors is too time consuming- and brokers only get paid when they close a deal. So, there was really no incentive to help the small investors.
Working with clients like Dan, buy his first commercial property so he could one day leave his practice is a great feeling. One commercial property was the equivalent to owning 35 single family homes.
