I recently started a YouTube real estate channel documenting my experience of being a RE investor and Landlord.

In a recent video I posted a summary of how I analyze a property and what information I gather to make an informed decision.

Google the property, review the zoning map, building permits and research the old rental ads on Padmapper - these are some of the strategies I discuss in this video. How to tell if a property you drove by is a multi-family income property? Look for multiple mailboxes, multiple electrical meters or gas meters - these are some of the tactics I discuss.

Resources for finding this information: (Particularly useful for any one from London Ontario)

If you check out the video - I'd love to hear your feedback.

Also was there anything I didn't cover that you research when analyzing a property?
