It feels strange working only 40 - 50 hour work weeks. I wanted to work for another company because of it, as being paid hourly, working so little means lacklustre income.

Investment Condos: Edmonton vs. Lower Mainland, BC

My original idea was to keep expanding the real estate portion of my portfolio with Edmonton properties, due to the following: (1) Low entry cost.
