Multifamily investing in the US

Multi-family real estate investing has become a popular topic among Canadian real estate investors. 

Multi-family real estate investing may mean small-scale landlords like you and I, buying single-family homes and converting them into duplex and triplex.   It may also mean investing in a 150 unit apartment building with multiple passive real estate investors. 

Recently, I got the opportunity to speak to Seth Ferguson who specializes in buying 150+ units in the United States.  He started like most Canadians, who started real estate investing with single-family homes, duplexes, and triplexes.  

Like many other Canadian real estate investors, he found himself reaching the ceiling of getting mortgages on new properties. 

A messy divorce with his joint venture partner, who was also his ex, wiped out his bank accounts and his portfolio. 

He didn’t give up.  He looked at this situation as an opportunity to learn and grow.  In this week’s YouTube interview, he went into detail about:

  • How to properly structure a 150 unit deal
  • How to invest in the United States as Canadians
  • Basic structure required for Canadians to invest in the US without being dinged on double taxation
  • How to apply Buy, Renovate, Rent, Refinance, Repeat (BRRRR) strategy with 150 unit apartment in the United States
  • What’s the interest rates and loan to value of investing in large scale in the United States
  • What are the potential returns that his investors have seen 

P.S.  Seth is hosting a Multifamily Investing Conference on May 14 and May 15, 2022 featuring one of the Sharks on the famous American TV show, Kevin O’Leary.  

He is hosting a draw to give a few VIP tickets away.  If you’re interested in it, feel free to sign up through the link.
