Ideas to build on

 I was in Calgary a few weeks back attending the Buildex Show which had some cool ideas. Dark chocolate tones, granite counter-tops, and blended-stone exterior facades are all beautiful to look at, but can be tough to extract the reno-rent ratio reward out of. For personal homes, executive rentals and commercial face-lifts - yes. For blue collar rentals, no.

There were two booths that I found especially interesting. The first was Cubeit personal storage. Essentially it is a moving container that comes to your property where you load it, then it is shipped away and stored for you. I like that. It's easy, fast and relatively economical.

The second booth I liked was equally glamorous... Waterproof roofing. Yes, sexy, I know. Peddie Roofing specializes in commercial roofing and they waterproof using modified bitumen, among other materials. They are not unique as roofers nor for the products they use; what is unique is how they evaluate the cost/life of the roofs they build and implement a targeted maintenance program. This is helpful when you are budgeting for a major roof overhaul.

I like to take away one or two ideas from a show and apply them; perhaps offering a Cubeit incentive will attract long-term renters who are relocating?

I appreciate all your calls and emails. I'm looking forward to helping you with your next step towards building real wealth.

Your success continues TODAY, let me help you build upon it.
