Making Sense of Toronto Real Estate Investment
When we talk or hear about Toronto real estate investment, a popular Warren Buffet quote comes to mind, and it rings true for this topic: “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”
By definition, a real estate investor is someone who actively or passively invests in real estate. An active investor is one who buys a property, undertakes repairs or improvements on the property, ultimately to sell it for a profit. A passive investor might still buy a property, but would rather hire someone or a company to manage the investment property.
Active or passive, end of the day, investors choose real estate for many reasons: managing cash flow, gaining from capital appreciation, taking advantage of depreciation, leverage and other tax benefits.
One of the advantages that we have going for us here in Canada is the strength of the Canadian economy. Toronto ranks very high amongst secure cities globally for real estate investment. In fact, with Ontario’s commitment to supporting businesses, and continuing to be among the world’s most innovative and stable markets to invest in, all currently bodes well for the security and appreciation of real estate investments.
