DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Even before it was a city, Vancouver was a property speculator's wet dream."There are more speculators about New Westminster and Victoria than there were in Winnipeg during the boom," CPR Chief WC Van Horne warned a friend in 1884, "and they are a much sharper lot. Nearly every person is more or less interested and you will have to be on your guard against all of them."Ever since Europeans first laid claim to the Squamish Nation territory in the 1870s, the real estate industry has held the region in its grip. Its influence has been grotesquely pervasive at every level of civic life, determining landmarks like Stanley Park and City Hall, as well as street names, neighbourhoods, even the name "Vancouver" itself. Land of Destiny aims to explore that influence, starting in 1862, with the first sale of land in the West End, and continuing up until the housing crisis of today. It will explore the backroom dealings, the skulduggery and nepotism, the racism and the obscene profits, while at the same time revealing that the same forces which made Vancouver what it is, speculation and global capital, are the same ones that shape it today, showing that more than anything else, the history of real estate and the history of Vancouver are one and the same.And it's been dirty as hell.About the Series: Land of Destiny is the first title in Anvil's new series "49.2: Tales from the Off Beat," an ongoing series dedicated to celebrating the eccentric and unusual parts of city history. From Jesse Donaldson, author of the Bill Duthie Booksellers' Choice Award finalist book This Day In Vancouver, and a host of other local historians, the series will be an in-depth examination of the weird, the wonderful, and the terrible, injecting fresh details into well-worn local lore, or digging deep into the obscure people, places, and happenings of the last 130 years. From psychedelic hospitals to town fools, from communist organizers to real estate scumbags, 49.2 will take pains to break down the myths surrounding the City of Glass.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A Globe and Mail Bestseller! A guide for Canadians on how to use real estate as an investment and retirement solution. Leveraging equity in a principal residence and using it wisely to purchase rental property is the solution to a safe, secure retirement for millions of Canadians. Many Canadians who own their home have never considered buying a second property. And nearly one-third of retirees are worried about running out of money. The Real Estate Retirement Plan shows how homeowners can use the tools already available to them — their mortgages — to access the initial capital to invest and prepare for their retirement. This is a proven, validated antidote to today’s historically low savings rates, poor current rates of return, and pressure on CPP and health care. With examples and a detailed discussion of the principles and mechanics, Calum Ross and Simon Giannini demystify real-estate investing and make an irrefutable case for borrowing to invest.

Winner of the Los Angeles Times Christopher Isherwood Prize for Autobiographical Prose Named a Best Book of the Year by NPR, the Washington Post, TIME, and Kirkus A Millions Most Anticipated Book of the Year A USA Today Book Not to Miss A LitHub Best-Reviewed Book of the Year Real Estate is the third and final installment in three-time Booker Prize nominated Deborah Levy’s Living Autobiography series: an exhilarating, thought-provoking and boldly intimate meditation on home and the specters that haunt it in our patriarchal society. “Three bicycles. Seven ghosts. A crumbling apartment block on the hill. Fame. Tenderness. The statue of Peter Pan. Silk. Melancholy. The banana tree. A love story.” Virginia Woolf wrote that in order to be a writer, a woman needs a room of one’s own. Now, in Real Estate, acclaimed author Deborah Levy concludes her ground-breaking trilogy of living autobiographies with an exhilarating, boldly intimate meditation on home and the specters that haunt it. In this vibrant memoir, Levy employs her characteristic indelible writing, sharp wit, and acute insights to craft a searing examination of womanhood and ownership. Her inventory of possessions, real and imagined, pushes readers to question our cultural understanding of belonging and belongings and to consider the value of a woman’s intellectual and personal life. Blending personal history, gender politics, philosophy, and literary theory, Real Estate is a brilliant, compulsively readable narrative.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The Real Deal tells the story of how a young man, Faisal Susiwala, against all odds, rose from childhood tragedy to the highest peak of professional real estate success and a life of wealth beyond his dreams--and for the first time reveals to readers the Susiwala System: a step-by-step way to generate maximum real estate wealth for professional real estate agents, brokers, and everyday investors both young and old.Follow Faisal's inspiring story, from losing his family home in childhood to foreclosure, through selling chocolate bars door-to-door, to starting out without so much as a car as possibly the youngest real estate salesperson in Canada, to traveling the world, owning a fleet of elegant luxury sports cars, and having a real estate portfolio that includes multimillion-dollar homes across the world. You'll learn how he battled back from bankruptcy as a young man, and narrowly escaped death at the World Trade Center on 9/11.But in addition to the fast-moving story of one of the world's most successful real estate agents, brokers and investors, The Real Deal also shows how each step helped Susiwala develop the crucial insights and powerful principles behind what works now in real estate and what doesn't, and shares with you his clear easy-to-follow blueprint for professional and personal real estate success.Today, after more than 30 years in the business, Faisal has been honored as the Number One RE/MAX agent in Canada and been credited for ranking fifth in the world for selling properties, after having sold well over a billion dollars worth. In The Real Deal he shares his secrets with his fellow colleagues, with those just starting out in real estate, and with everyone who would like a rich and secure financial future. The Real Deal isn't a "get-rich-quick" book filled with fluff, but a clear statement of the tried and true lessons that made the author wealthy, and that, followed properly, can give you the reader a solid financial footing, and carry any real estate professional or investor young and old comfortably into retirement, and ensure their children's security as well.
