Before I started down the path of Real Estate investing one book that comes to mind, is, “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. After reading the book and listening to the audio recordings it became clear to me everyone should understand these important philosophies.

Ryan Carr – Creating High Returns on your Renos
To find incredible deals in Real Estate you have to learn to be creative. What type of property will give you a positive return? What type of enhancements can you make in the least amount of time. An expert in this area, is Ryan Carr.
Ryan Carr is a full time real estate investor from the Durham Region who specializes in maximising residential rent potential using his “vertical split” renovation technique. His company, R.W. Carr Investments, has created a sustainable portfolio through the use of joint venture funding, and has also recently branched out into mentorship programs for newcomers to the industry.
His involvement with real estate began in 2012 where a bank-sale property was purchased, shortly followed by the first “fixer-upper” bungalow, of which was converted to a legal 2-unit home. The progression grew from these initial properties into the expansion of joint venture financing and mentorship programs that has allowed the company to grow a self-sustaining portfolio of properties backed by efficient economics and positive a tenant experience.
