One piece of information that I find useful when researching a deal is the property assessment value. In Ontario, that valuation is determined by MPAC – the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation.
In other provinces, you’ll have a different government body setting those valuations for you. And sometimes you can even get them for free from your local municipality (Calgary is a good example — hey City of Ottawa, why don’t we have this?)
If you’re working with a realtor, they can often provide you most of this information and more. But what if you don’t have a realtor, or you’re dealing with a For Sale By Owner property?
That’s why I decided to create a short 16-minute video (my first one for this blog) to explain how to do all of the above for free. Check it out below…
