#110:  Straight From The Streets

On this week’s show Gary chats with his partners Quinton Cordick and Christopher Hummell about their journeys as real estate agents and investors. They’ve had a lot of fun building up SmartHomeChoice to be able to serve thousands of investors build their portfolios, while making the process as stress-free as possible. They talked about the market and what’s happening on the streets, as the headlines in the media don’t always tell the complete story. Who’s driving the market - experienced investors, new investors? They also discussed where to invest - Peterborough, outside of Peterborough…


  • Why comparable listings from months back are basically useless these days because the market is moving so quickly
  • Why some houses are receiving multiple offers and some aren’t
  • Is every house these days appraising at its value
  • Why you shouldn’t worry these days if houses are on the market for 2 weeks
  • Will the 10% month over month growth continue
  • Why it’s harder to predict what a property will close at
  • Why Quinton and Chris are calling agents to check what owners want for a property, before showing it and preparing offers, to not waste their clients’ time
  • Some properties are being listed at a price, but the owner wants double
  • Why an agent that works in the area is way more effective than of market agents
  • It doesn’t matter if we are at the peak of the market, if the numbers make sense
  • Why they respect the client’s comfort level
  • What type of properties are being purchased now
  • Anything in the news is ‘news’, it’s not what’s happening now
  • Where are the opportunities now - Peterborough, further afield?
  • Why there will ALWAYS be renters 
  • And MORE!
