Do you have a Pension?

Do you have a company pension?  I don't.  

That's why, several years ago, I started buying investment real estate. My goal is to own $2,000,000 worth of investment real estate by the time I retire. 

The logic is simple. If you can buy early, and often enough, you should be able to own, free and clear, $2m worth of real estate by retirement age. 

When you own $2m worth of real estate, you can expect to net 4-6% from that investment (figures are approximates, and used for example purposes only. Real world results can vary).  At 5% net return on investment, you are earning $100,000 per year from your $2m investment portfolio. 

If you own these properties free and clear, you may also have the option to refinance some of them to fund retirement lifestyle or purchases (cottage? Time share? Vacation home? Spoil your grandkids?).  

My plan is to use the ownership of these properties to generate a consistent cash flow in my retirement years, and pass the assets on to my survivors when I am no longer here.  Yes, they will face tax issues, however, the benefits far outweigh the consequences. 

What is your retirement plan?

The REAL Ben:

Born and Raised in Woodstock Ontario, I am intrinsically connected with the community. When I am not selling Real Estate for my clients, I can be found hanging out with my family. My wife, Amanda, my sons Nolan and Liam, and our mutt, Nori. 

My family enjoys biking the awesome trails around Woodstock, having dinner at one of the many Oxford County establishments, playing golf at one of the many area courses, and the accessible, inexpensive nature of life in Woodstock.

My rural life keeps me busy, maintaining and upgrading our home just outside of the city. When I have spare time, I like to listen to music, play some guitar or video games, and stay up to date on the latest memes. 

My family loves to travel, and recent trips include a bucket-list-checking voyage to New Zealand and Australia in 2018, a road trip to Acadian Shores Nova Scotia the year before. Upcoming goals include another east coast visit to PEI and New Brunswick. 

We love visiting the family cottage in Port Loring, On, where I pretend to know how to catch pickerel and wakeboard. Really I just secretly like quiet hours floating on a lake. 


One thing I need to mention, though, since you've read this far, is that the true joy I get from my position as a Real Estate Broker, is crafting excellent strategies to capitalize on current market conditions for the benefit of my clients. Taking an idea, strategizing to minimize stress and maximize opportunites given in the market, and turning it in to a reality brings me great happiness. Let's get happy together!
