Our Lives Are Defined by Opportunities....Here are a few for you!

30 years ago when I had more time than children, I used to play my guitar and write songs. I wrote one called Opportunity Knocks about the multiple opportunities I was presented with in those days. I thought it was a great tune… but perhaps because of my lack of real talent, not many people were afforded the opportunity to hear it. 


 I know many of you look forward to these emails to check out some of the opportunities I have spotted in the previous weeks. I can tell this because you tell me and inquire about some of the properties or businesses that I put forward.  However there is a saying that "Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them." — William Arthur Ward. 


Many of the opportunities for great purchases I have mentioned before have been snapped up by others. However recently I sent an opportunity to a couple of young guys looking for a building. The building wasn’t in great shape but they negotiated a 26% discount on the asking price.  What was a good deal all of a sudden became pretty amazing.  You too can turn a good deal into an amazing one by negotiating and putting in the effort (and yes it is effort to make sure the deal sticks together with bank financing, inspections and the like)  

 Here are some opportunities that might be knocking on your door this week.


Gas Station and Liquor Store Williams lake asking $2,990,000 Netting $400k in Profit.  This one just came on the market 2 days ago and I know there is quite a bit of interest in Liquor stores, This business has store sales  of $4 million a year which includes gas and snacks. The multiples seem reasonable for this type of business including the building, NDA  and probably a fair bit of due diligence required. See more details Here.


Best deal per sq foot for warehouse purchase in BC

I had a deal collapse on these warehouses recently and now they are back on the market. 44000 Sq Ft / $5,950,000   Only $135/ per Sq Foot including 3 Acres of Land with Rail Access.  Here is the Drone Video and you can download the 26 page package here  Owners are willing to lease back one or more of the 3 warehouses or subdivide.  This could be life changing for you and your business. 

Multifamily Condo: I came across this one in Fort St John, Built in 2015 this 4 unit strata is priced at $1.4 M While the current cap rate seems low at 5.4%, the rents in Fort St John are probably 1800-2000 per month for these units.  Click Here for More Info


Lowest price per acre Deal - 15 Acres Prince George with easy access to the Hwy, possible  rail access and next to a Correctional Center.  $99,000 for the whole parcel.  Didn’t your grandfather tell you to buy land and hold it.  Well this one might be for you. Here is the link


 Most expensive listing since my last email $32M for 8 Acres in Chilliwack

I don’t see the value but perhaps you do. Here is the link


Negotiate a great deal with owners who are motivated. 

If you want to negotiate a deal for a family business here are two with owners who are ready to work with your offers. 


Family Business Flooring Store: This is a great option for someone who loves retail and being creative. The flooring store is making money and should be financeable with a bank like BDC. The owner is ready to move and will help you learn the business. Asking Price $399K 


Take out Restaurant Deli. This business is doing over 600k per year and the owners are moving on. They want to sell the business for less than the price of the assets. It is a going concern and you can make it into whatever you want. Click here for the information package, financials and list of assets.  


A Couple opportunities out of the North

Retirement business on Salt Spring Island Anyone: here is a 7 Unit holiday rental unit with 15 bedrooms, spectacular views and a gated driveway, built in 2011, $5.7M 


That is all I have this week for you that isn’t too repetitive. Need more information on any of these I can get it for you.


Let me know if you are looking for something specific and I will make sure that my team and I work to find something for you. 


And remember "Our lives are defined by opportunities. Even the ones we miss." — F. Scott Fitzgerald
