A good hint that it's not a good time to buy when no cash flow properties can be found?

Hello,

I am in Ottawa and have found that it's almost impossible to find a property that cash flows, due to high prices. Is this a sign that now is not the time to buy?

It can be yes. However, what we ended up doing in the Toronto area was coming up with ways to make cash flow by coming up with new ideas like Rent-to-Own programs or turning single family homes into duplexes (where allowed) or investing in student rentals.

So there's usually always a way to make cash flow... it just gets harder at certain points in the real estate cycle.
