I have chosen to focus my investments on owning rental properties in British Columbia because to me, it’s what I felt the most comfortable doing. I have always had a general interest in real estate and try to read and study everything real estate related, so focusing on real estate investments just felt like a more natural investment channel for me. More so than heavily investing in indexed funds.
“There is nothing wrong with a ‘know nothing’ investor who realizes it. The problem is when you are a ‘know nothing’ investor but you think you know something.”
– Warren Buffett
You can say that I fell into real estate investing 10 years ago, when I bought an apartment and then my family rented it from me. A few years later, my family moved out and I had my first arm’s length tenant move-in. And then another tenant.
