Thinking of Investing in a rental property…. Check out these great tips!

March 3rd, 2015 by Caleigh Pagnucco

7 GREAT FACTS ABOUT RENTAL PROPERTIES!!!

1) Interest paid is tax deductible!

2) You need minimum 20% downpayment to purchase a property designated to be used as a rental.

3) Clients can use their existing equity (in the form of a HELOC or refinance) to put as a downpayment on their rental.

4) You can often use 50% of the rent being paid to help qualify. If the property is not currently rented, an appraiser can provide a “market rents analysis” that gives the lender an idea how much a property COULD be rented for, and use 50% of that to help qualify (note a larger downpayment may be required in this case)

5) Rentals can be held in a holding OR operating company name (usually at a slight premium on the rate)

6) Most lenders allow up to four “doors” (properties) in a client’s portfolio, but some will allow up to 16!

7) Owning one or more rental properties is one of the most reliable roads to wealth in this country!

 

Thanks for the great tips James Catterall at Mortgage Architects

Hazealdean History

Did you know…

Hazeldean was once the home to part of the Edmonton, Yukon & Pacific Railway (1902-1950’s), which connected the south to the north. When most of the tracks had been removed by 1954, the city of Edmonton converted what was left of this rail line into walking trails and bike paths that span the length of what is known today as the Mill Creek Ravine.  Not only did the Historical Board of Edmonton erected a plaque in the ravine commemorating the railway, but in 2012 a sculpture was placed in the ravine titled “Ghost Rails”. This sculpture represents the history of the ravine and what once was.

Hazeldean Today

Now in days, Hazeldean is one of Edmonton’s most popular south central and historical neighbourhoods. From beautifully mature tree lined street, large well manicured lots with wonderful character homes spread thought out the area. The neighbourhood is also experiencing some rejuvenation projects by the city to the tune of 28 million dollars including:

  • New Pavement

  • New curbs and gutters

  • New sidewalks

  • Upgraded street lights

This is improvement  was much needed and is hugely appreciated as it is adding not only a convenience to the neighbourhood but extra value to those who already own in the area.

When looking at the homes in the area, there is also much rejuvenation taking place. Many lots have been leveled with new and improved infill homes being erected to meet today’s societies living needs. There is a larger variety of styles of homes entering the neighbourhood, from beautiful 2 storeys, to designer duplexes with separate entrance basement suites, to modern style tri-plexes offering a fab place to reside with no yard maintenance and building up-keep, as these operate like a condo. While other homes are being given a much needed facelift to improve curb appeal and value.

Residents of the Hazeldean enjoy the ravine itself for long walk with or without their pets to enjoy nature and the outdoors. There is a long stretch of off leash dog area upon one of the entrances to the ravine where pet owners enjoy throwing a frisbee or ball back and forth while their fur babies enjoy the fresh air.  There are local restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance to satisfy ones cravings. For families with children there are 2 schools located right within the neighbourhood itself. There is:

The Good Samaritan Dr. Gerald Zetter Care Centre is located on the north side of the community offering different programs to help care for the elderly.

The Argyll Comunity League is close by offering residents indoor recreational activities like yoga and women’s karate. and during those hot summer months, the Mill Creek outdoor swimming pool is popular destination for those looking to cool off.
