News From Jamie Thompson
I wanted to give you an update on the current real estate situation in Calgary!
Let’s start off by saying that it’s nothing like the market in the GTA, that’s for sure!
Prices are the most affordable out of all major cities in Canada.
Calgary has the best cost of living in Canada with very low taxes as well!
The population growth saw an increase through 2020 and still is into 2021.
There are more and more Tech companies starting to call Calgary home.
And these are only a few reasons why I am optimistic about the Calgary RE market.
A vast majority of the population actually rent here in Calgary which leaves a lot of opportunity to own a rental property that actually cashflows (unlike Ontario right now where prices are too high).
I am excited and optimistic about investing here this year and I’m always looking at and analyzing deals!
If you are interested in investing in Calgary or want to find out more about the opportunities, let me know and I’d be happy to chat!
It’s already March and just like that, we’re 3 months into 2021.
March is associated with the luck of the Irish and St. Patrick’s Day.
So I want to ask you, what really is luck and is it real?
I’m not talking about finding $100 on the street either.
I mean lucky in a way where someone has achieved something that you had thought was impossible for them.
Have you felt lucky in the past?
Do you know of someone who you think is just ALWAYS lucky?
Do they seem to be a pretty decent person who has an optimistic outlook on the world?
Probably more often than not, right?
The more I think about this, the more I think that lucky people aren’t actually lucky.
I think that they do know how to control their thoughts, create absolute clarity around a goal or outcome, and then take action towards it.
Only to be rewarded for it in one way or another.
Maybe even rewarded in the most outrageously unexpected way possible.
Is that luck?
Or is that an understanding of how to create desire towards a very clear and specific outcome?
Then take action and put one foot in front of the other day after day?
Breaking the large goal into much smaller and more manageable tasks.
Now what goals do you have?
How can you appreciate where you are, while also breaking that large goal into monthly to do lists?
The trick is, once you do that, you actually have to take action….
Let me know if I can help!
Until next month..
