Happy Canada Day!

On July 1, 1867, the British North Americas Act created the Dominion of Canada as a federation of four provinces. This event is known as the confederation of Canada. The four original provinces were created from the former British colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Province of Canada, which was divided into the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. Canada's boundaries have been extended since 1867. The country now consists of 10 provinces and three territories.

On June 20, 1868, the Canada's Governor General proclaimed that Canadians should celebrate the anniversary of the confederation. July 1 became a holiday, known as Dominion Day, in 1879. However, no official celebrations were held until the 50th anniversary in 1917 and the 60th anniversary in 1927. After World War II, Dominion Day was celebrated more frequently and more events were organized by the national government. After the centenary of the confederation in 1967, Dominion Day events became more widespread. July 1 became popularly known as Canada Day. The date was also officially known as Canada Day from 1983 onwards.

Since 2006 Canada Day celebrations were also held at London's Trafalgar Square in the United Kingdom. It is expected that these celebrations will be held annually. Depending on the availability of Trafalgar Square, these events may be held just before, on or just after July 1.

Incumbent Imbecile
 
Recently I heard the former mayor of Reading, Pennsylvania,
recount some funny stories about his time in office.
One happened while he was running for reelection;
he was in a bar and paid for a woman’s drink.
She thanked him but wondered why a stranger had 
bought her a beer.
“I’m running for mayor,” he told her, “and I want your vote.”
“You got it,” she said, grabbing her glass.
“Anyone’s better than the jerk who’s in there now.”

Why Invest In Real Estate?

          If you are like most people, the idea of riding the stock market ‘roller coaster’ makes you feel a little queasy.  The highs can be a lot of fun, but the lows really give you a kickin’ (and there seem to be a lot more lows than highs for most investors).

         While real estate also follows a cycle, it tends to be a much more gradual one.  Investing in revenue properties offers us limited immunity from fluctuation

         This means that you don’t tend to see the massive ups and downs of the stock and commodity markets.  It’s a much gentler ride, and tends to provide very solid returns on investment over the long run.  This is another reason I prefer real estate investing over other kinds of investments.

Mike McMillan: 2019 May EZINE



May, 2019
News From Mike McMillan

May is the fifth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and the third of seven months to have a length of 31 days.

May is a month of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Therefore, May in the Southern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent of November in the Northern Hemisphere and vice versa. Late May typically marks the start of the summer vacation season in the United States and Canada that ends on Labor Day, the first Monday of September.

The month of May (in Latin, Maius) was named for the Greek Goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May. Conversely, the Roman poet Ovid provides a second etymology, in which he says that the month of May is named for the maiores, Latin for "elders," and that the following month (June) is named for the iuniores, or "young people" (Fasti VI.88).

Roses to Virgin Mary
Mayovka, in the context of the late Russian Empire, was a picnic in the countryside or in a park in the early days of May, hence the name. Eventually, "mayovka" (specifically, "proletarian mayovka") came to mean an illegal celebration of May 1 by revolutionary public, typically presented as an innocent picnic.

Special devotions to the Virgin Mary take place in May.

Mike McMillan: 2019 April EZINE



April, 2019
News From Mike McMillan

Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the most important Christian festival, and the one celebrated with the greatest joy.

The date of Easter changes each year, and several other Christian festivals fix their dates by reference to Easter.

Churches are filled with flowers, and there are special hymns and songs. But not all Easter customs are Christian; some, such as the Easter Bunny, are pagan in origin.

The Easter story is at the heart of Christianity

On Good Friday, Jesus Christ was executed by crucifixion. His body was taken down from the cross, and buried in a cave.

The tomb was guarded and an enormous stone was put over the entrance, so that no-one could steal the body.

On the following Sunday, some women visited the grave and found that the stone had been moved, and that the tomb was empty.

Jesus himself was seen that day, and for days afterwards by many people. His followers realised that God had raised Jesus from the dead.

March, 2019
News From Mike McMillan
ALL ABOUT THE MONTH OF MARCH

Welcome to the third month of the year—or, if you were born before 150 B.C., the first! According to the oldest Roman calendars, one year was ten months long, beginning in March and ending in December. It may sound crazy, but you can still see traces of this old system in our modern calendar: because December was the tenth month, it was named for the number ten in Latin (decem), just like September was named for seven (septem). So, what about January and February? They were just two nameless months called “winter,” proving that winter is literally so awful it doesn’t even deserve a spot on the calendar.

March brings with it the promise of gardening and warm(er), sunny days, as Earth turns its frostbitten cheek to winter and springs forth from the vernal equinox. Read about this month’s holidays, happenings, seasonal recipes, gardening tips, Moon phases, folklore, and much more!

All the best to you and I hope we talk soon. If not, there will be more great information about the benefits of investing in Real Estate in next month’s Ezine.

Best Regards,
 
Mike McMillan.

          One of the reasons I like real estate as an investment (as opposed to mutual funds, stocks, bonds, GIC’s, etc.) is because we can take advantage of LEVERAGE.  Let me give you an example.  Let’s say you wanted to buy $500,000 worth of gold.  How much would that cost you?  If you said $500K, you’re absolutely right! 

   Now let’s say we want to buy a $500,000 duplex – how much will that cost us?  $500K?   Nope. 
   We can buy that property with just a 20% downpayment ($100K) and the bank will finance the other 80% ($400K).  We use a little bit of money in order to own a LOT of real estate. 

   Now here’s where it gets really exciting… Let’s say the property increases in value by 4%.  That would be a $20,000 increase in value.   $20K on a $500K investment is pretty good… However, because we LEVERAGED our money, we are actually making a $20,000 return on our $100,000 downpayment.  That’s a 20% return on our cash invested! 

   That’s the POWER of LEVERAGE, and that’s one of the BIG benefits of investing in real estate vs. most other options out there.

Mike McMillan: 2019 February EZINE

 
 
February, 2019
News From Mike McMillan

February Meaning and Symbolism

February meaning might best be kicked off with a quick look at the etymology of the month’s moniker. The word February is born from the Latin word Februarius, from Latin februare meaning to “purify” or “expiate.”

In ancient Rome, Februarius was the “Month of Purification” and great festivities were held to reestablish the empire’s focus on righteous living.

To me, this idea of devoting a month to the process of purification is invigorating. The hustle-bustle of the holidays are left behind – February finally sees many of us getting our first breath of fresh air. And, by this time of year the pressure of New Year’s resolutions is either incorporated itself into healthy habits or dropped by the wayside (depending upon if we’ve kept our resolution vows or not :).

February is a transitional month, and so February meaning and symbolism will have a transitional feel too. There is change in the air this time of year, and we can see this manifested in certain festivals & holidays in this month.

Where I live, up in the cold regions of North America, the Earth begins to kick just a bit. Everything is still clutched in snow and ice, but February marks the forward momentum of the seasonal procession, and offers a reminder that Spring is not far.

To give you a feel for symbolic February meaning, I’m offering a few symbolic lists for your contemplation.

Mike McMillan: 2019 January EZINE



January, 2019
News From Mike McMillan

January Meaning and Symbolism

January can be a tough time for some of us who are profoundly affected by the seasons of our planet. It has to do with ancient themes of both hibernation as well as emergence from deep withdrawal.

I love pulling on the threads of myth and old legend for symbolic answers about our environment, including the flavors and personality traits of the seasons and the months of the year.

One such thread to pull in our exploration of January meaning and symbolism is from Roman mythology. Janus, specifically. He’s the Roman god of doors, doorways, arches, openings, closings and the like. Many of you may remember Janus as the ‘two-faced’ god (or two heads, depending on your source of reference). I like this imagery very much because January is replete with paradoxes, and the prime paradox I’ve mentioned – namely, the interplay between reclusiveness and emergence.

The month of January was named after Janus for his ability to turn one face to reflect upon the past and a yet another face freshly pointed upon the future. This is so appropriate. January marks the new year for most of us humans. A new beginning.

Control

One of the reasons I like real estate as an investment (as opposed to mutual funds, stocks, bonds, GIC’s, etc.) is that it is something that I can exercise much more CONTROL over.  When buying a revenue property, I can choose the market I want to invest in (right down to the neighborhood, or even the street I want to buy in).  I can choose the type of property I want to buy (i.e. single family home, multi-family property, etc.).  I choose the condition of the property I want to buy.  I have some control over how much I pay for the property (prices and/or terms are negotiable).  I then choose what I want to do with the property once I own it.  While I own it, I exercise control over how the property is managed and maintained.  And last, but not least, I can choose from a variety of different exit strategies when I am ready to sell it.  With traditional investments, the only control you exercise is when you buy and when you sell.

Supply & Demand

          Do you remember the ‘tickle me Elmo’ craziness from a few years back?  It was the hottest toy for Christmas, and people stood in line for hours to get one.  People were able to sell those dolls for 10X what they paid for them.  Why?  Simple supply and demand.  The supply was low, the demand was high – so the price reflected it.

   The same is true for real estate.  There is a serious shortage of rental properties available in many areas, and that leads to low vacancies.  Low vacancies mean we can charge higher rents, and increase our profits and the values of our properties.  And the beautiful thing about real estate is that it fills a true need.  People always need shelter – in good times and in bad times.  I love real estate because there is a built in demand.

Capital Gains

       How would you like an investment where not only can you make a great return on your money, but you also pay less taxes on your profits?  That’s what happens with real estate.  When it comes to the capital gains you make on your properties, you are only charged tax on ½ of it.  Compare that to interest you generate in a savings account… first of all, it’s miniscule and secondly, you are going to get whacked with taxes on the full amount that you earned

Another big PLUS on the side of real estate as an investment.

About the month of August:

August
 is the eighth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with a length of 31 days. In the Southern Hemisphere, August is the seasonal equivalent of February in the Northern Hemisphere.  This month was originally named Sextilis in Latin, because it was the sixth month in the original ten-month Roman calendar under Romulus in 753 BC, when March was the first month of the year. About 700 BC it became the eighth month when January and February were added to the year before March by King Numa Pompilius, who also gave it 29 days. Julius Caesar added two days when he created the Julian calendar in 45 BC giving it its modern length of 31 days. In 8 BC it was renamed in honor of Augustus (despite common belief, he did not take a day from February; see the debunked theory on month lengths). According to a Senatus consultum quoted by Macrobius, he chose this month because it was the time of several of his great triumphs, including the conquest of Egypt.

 
Quote of the Month 
“Don’t wait to buy real estate, buy real estate and wait.”

A Laugh or Two For Good Measure!
Two men are playing golf. One of them is about to take a swing when a funeral procession appears on the road next to the course. He stops mid-swing, takes off his cap, closes his eyes, and bows his head in contemplation. 
 
His opponent comments: "That must be the most touching thing I’ve ever seen. You are a very feeling man." The man, recovering himself, replies, "Yeah, well we were married 35 years."

Why Invest In Real Estate?

          If you are like most people, the idea of riding the stock market ‘roller coaster’ makes you feel a little queasy.  The highs can be a lot of fun, but the lows really give you a kickin’ (and there seem to be a lot more lows than highs for most investors).

         While real estate also follows a cycle, it tends to be a much more gradual one.  Investing in revenue properties offers us limited immunity from fluctuation

         This means that you don’t tend to see the massive ups and downs of the stock and commodity markets.  It’s a much gentler ride, and tends to provide very solid returns on investment over the long run.  This is another reason I prefer real estate investing over other kinds of investments.
