Guest: Scott Zandbergen, Real Estate Investor & Entrepreneur
Scott started his side hustle in real estate around 5 years ago as he became frustrated with his poor-performing investment portfolio of mutual funds and ETFs from his employer contribution RRSPs. He realized that the only growth was the money being put in every month and nothing was happening from a market perspective. The light bulb went off and Scott decided to educate himself by attending courses and networking groups to diversify into self-managed real estate investing.
Originally interested in Rent-to-Owns but after a few interesting experiences, Scott decided to shift his focus to buying single-family homes and converting them to legal duplexes by adding a secondary suite in the basement. This strategy is a proven method of raising property value in a short period of time while maximizing monthly cash flow. Currently, he works part-time at his corporate job in order to have more time to focus on managing his many properties.
