Key Takeaways: 

What really attracted me to the student rental model is that I have multiple leases in these houses. I would never be without any revenue altogether. Worst case scenario is these days I’m perhaps half full or four out of six students are there. I’m always receiving a steady flow of cash which provides my business stability.” – Jared Henderson 

“The reason why I continued investing in southern Ontario instead of Montreal is because of the strong fundamentals in the GTA, through transportation development, job formation, and migration.” – Jared Henderson 

“If the student population dries up. And there’s too much competition with investors like myself or concentrating on cash flow and filling up all these rooms, I can either do a single-family by just converting it to a nice new home, or I can duplex the building.” – Jared Henderson 

“Six-beds is a sweet spot in terms of good cash flow and manageable results.” – Jared Henderson 

“I aim for a year-long lease. Most of my students are at Fleming College where you’re having certain terms to be 1, 2, 3 years versus typical University, which would be four years. So, with these shorter periods of time, I do have a little bit more turnover.”  – Jared Henderson 

“I’ve had success filling out my homes in the summer they would be slightly less occupied. But we’re talking four to five rooms complete versus six over the summer.” – Jared Henderson
