$96,292/YEAR --> My MultiMillion Dollar Real Estate Portfolio

Updated: Sep 20

I wanted to share some highlights and downsides about real estate investing. I'm not a hard core real estate enthusiast...every investing strategy has their pros and cons.

I finally reveal my entire rental property portfolio including how much rental cashflow, plus equity over the past decade+. I thought by revealing might help you in some way in your journey.

Over my investing journey, I've purchased 14 properties over a 14 year period. I share the good, the bad and the ugly with my rental income..or what other people call this 'passive' income.

Here's Exactly How Much Passive Income 7 houses pay me now..


Definition of Passive income

  • Passive income is about making money using low-effort ways

  • I have purchased 14 properties since 2007 and have 7 currently

  • My best performers have been semi-detached/single-family homes in nice areas

  • My worst performers have been condos because condo fees have been eating up cash flows and some of my condos are located in oil and gas mining industries which have not been doing well

How much my rental properties are worth

  • The total market value of rental properties is $3.29M

  • 46% of the property's value is still in mortgages = $1.54M

3 ways of making money in Real Estate

  1. Cashflow = Rent - Expenses

  2. Mortgage paydown a.k.a equity

  3. Appreciation

How much I made last month

  1. Cashflow = $ 2750

  2. Mortgage paydown = $2932

Sum = $5682 for 1 month & 1 hour of work

  • every month is different as cashflows fluctuate due to vacancies, repairs, etc.

How much I made last year (2019)

  • $35,170 = Mortgage paydown in 2019

  • $72, 500 = Appreciation in 2019

  • Most rental properties are in Ottawa which experiences growth of at leats 5% yoy

  • Used 3% as a more conservative estimation

  • $5689 = cashflow in 2019 due to making major renovations/work and aggressively paying down mortgages

  • spent a total of 35 hours on these properties

  • sum = $29,481 in 2019 & 35 hours of work or $842/hour

  • passive income = $96292 for 2019

Main takeaways

  • Investing in real estate is like having a forced savings account that you can't easily access unless you refinance or get a secured line of credit

  • Real estate investments can provide cash flow, mortgage pay-out, appreciation, and equity growth, which can be used to buy another property

  • Rental properties with cash flow can be used to pay down other mortgages more aggressively.
