Quick and Easy Property Valuation for British Columbian Real Estate Investors

by Julie Broad

In my post about Breaking Even Over Time I wrote about a few cool things we learned at the real estate investing conference we attended a couple of weekends ago. One of those cool things is the Property Valuator report from Landcor. This report was worth the entire day we spent in that conference because we had no idea it had launched this month and it’s already saving us a ton of time!

After sending out nearly 6,000 little yellow letters to home owners in Nanaimo, putting bus bench ads up, and slowly spreading our marketing message around the City of Nanaimo through plenty of mediums, we have been getting a lot of calls. And one of the big challenges we face is getting good property comparables fast. This report solves that problem in a big way!

In 60 seconds I can have this report sent to my email containing a computer generated property valuation, recent sale data for the area, assessment data and details on 3 comparable properties.

I created a 4 minute video introducing you to the Landcor report. Sorry about all the blurred out spots but the terms of use state that the report is not to be disseminated, sold or otherwise used for any purpose at all really … so I hope by covering up the majority of address data I’m mostly in compliance. Thank you for understanding and putting up with the blurred bits!!

Enjoy …

Finding Rental Property Locations

We’re slowly learning how to record, edit and post videos. We will continue to get better – we promise! In the meantime, here’s a video filmed in Nanaimo, on what makes a good rental property area. And, specifically, I talk about why I like Nanaimo’s prospects for the future.

Video On Potential Redevelopment Land in Nanaimo’s Departure Bay Area

We were in Nanaimo, B.C. last weekend meeting with our property manager and checking out a few of our properties. While we were there we shot a few videos around town. This video is of a 1 acre site just steps from the beach, a few little shops and some parks and recreational facilities. It’s a piece of land with potential, but there are also some challenges. Listen as we do a preliminary walk of the property and discuss the issues.

We’ll be uploading more videos in the next few weeks. You can stop by the Rev N You Group page (or become a member) to see the videos as they are added: http://www.youtube.com/group/revnyou.
