Millions of people are involved
in Real Estate in Canada including those who own, rent, invest and
participate in our largest single source of GDP. But the problem is that
the topic is so complex, so UNREAL and so different in each location that not many
really understand what is going on. Not even our three levels of
Government really know what is going on! So we published our book to
explain Canadian real estate called UnREAL-ESTATE CANADA.

In 430 pages you will be informed,
surprised, likely a bit shocked, entertained, and finally aware of the opportunities and dangers. You will then be in a much
better position to make the best decisions regarding buying, holding,
selling and renting real estate. Please read on to learn more about the
content and if you know people who are also interested in Real Estate
please share this page with them.
This book was published in May 2017 by
Battiston Publishing a registered Canadian Publisher since 1996 and we
have two objectives -to enlighten and entertain. It is entirely possible after you
have read our book to make an excellent decision in Canadian real estate
and to either make an excellent return or avoid a financial loss. No
other book has ever provided this information in the detailed and very
readable way that you will discover here!
A warning. It will take a few
minutes to review this website. We could have just shown you a picture
of our book with a buy now button but we decided to share some very
interesting information first. There is a lot more information
that you will be happy to know in the book!
have done very well and have been making a lot of money from their investments. Others have lost a lot of
money and are unable to purchase property or even rent it. Still others are
spending an unreasonable amount of their income on mortgage interest and
the rates will soon go up. And not all areas of
Canada are the same. One market could be going up (seller's market), another area could be
stagnant or it could be going down (buyer's market) in price. Some real estate is affordable by an
average family and in other areas it is not. Every group involved in real
estate has one main objective -to generate income and make a profit
in addition to having a nice place to live and so each group
will give you advice based on their objectives. We provide a different
approach and we share with you information based on facts and reality. No
Canada has advantages and a few
small disadvantages regarding climate...
The Canadian real estate market is
absolutely huge and in fact is the largest single source of GDP in
Canada. Our objective is
to show how real estate really works in Canada and how you
can make the best decisions if you decide to buy, sell, hold or rent.
When economies change people tend
to adapt and today in Canada we actually have some Canadians living
in their vehicles or in tents in some of our highest priced cities a fact that the
media and government are very reluctant to report. Canada has an
reputation for investment in real estate and billions of dollars in
foreign funds are
flowing into our market each year. Some of the activity is unreal one of the examples
is Toronto where prices have gone up over 30% in just one year!
One of the
problems with our market is that it is so different in various communities
and so a rule or approach that may work well in one location will not work
very well in another. Our book explains the solutions.
At Battiston Publishing we
publish books that inform and entertain. We enjoy publishing them and we think
that you will enjoy reading them! Our objective is to provide you with
information that will help you deal successfully with life's challenges. Life is
a lot more fun when you avoid problems!

In Canada we have three levels of
government; Municipal, Provincial and Federal. And each level have their
hands out to collect money from real estate in order to help meet their
many expenses. Remember - Real Estate is
the largest single source of GDP in Canada. So they are unable
to make that revenue from Manufacturing or Natural Resources.
Canada is one of the best countries in the world to invest in real
estate. Why? The Canadian government allows you to make huge
profits on the sale of real estate used for your prime residence and you don't need
to pay ANY income taxes on the profit! But if you place your
savings in a bank or stocks or a business you must pay taxes on all the
profits you make. Unreal? It really is unreal. If you lose money
on the stock market you can reduce your taxes based on the loss but if
you lose money in real estate investment for your prime residence that
does not effect your taxes. Is there something wrong here?? Yes there
Rich foreign investors are
intelligent. For 150 years Canada has been welcoming people from all
over the world to move to and become fellow Canadians. Canada
unlike other countries also allows you to keep your foreign citizenship
and still hold Canadian citizenship. Canada is politically correct -so to
speak. Foreign investors know they can't claim to be using the homes as prime
residences if they live outside of Canada so they simply put the homes
into their kid's names and send their kids to a Canadian university and
guess what? In a rising market they can sell the home when their kids
graduate and make a huge tax free profit. Smart!
If you check out
the percentage of foreign students in real estate markets with huge
increases in prices you will be shocked. As an example the University of
Toronto has 30% of it's students from foreign countries. And it gets
better! Their kids will have student visa's and are in much better
positions to apply for Canadian citizenship which in turn means
that they can apply to have their parents become citizens too. There are
many advantages in the world today to have joint citizenship in more
than one country especially a safe country like Canada where there is
free education, medical care and many other benefits. Canadians are very
friendly people. And often new Canadians tend to group together in areas
where residents of similar backgrounds live.
As the purchase price goes up so
does the size and appearance and your mortgage payments and taxes and
monthly costs and yet if you can afford it why not? In reality, in
certain Canadian markets where prices are rising your home can also be
generating tax free profits. By that I mean if you keep your money in
the bank and or if you earn your money from your job or business or
other investments then you must pay
income taxes but if you place
your money in a house or condo and live there then sell it a few years
later at a good profit you don't pay any taxes on that income.
happening in Canada today and wise investors in certain markets are
investing in real estate rather than purchasing stocks or placing their
money in deposit accounts or even investing in businesses that employ
people and provide services or products. Think about it.
So, if you owned this
20 million dollar+ home and
real estate went down by say 10% you would lose over 2 million dollars
if you had to sell -but if it went up you could make over 2 million
dollars if you sold it and if it was your prime residence you would not
need to pay a penny in income taxes on the profit! Welcome to Canada!
We explain the different markets
and how best to deal with them. We explain how deals are made and how
questionable techniques are often used. Your Author does have a well
established sense of humor and so the information is presented in a very
readable and enjoyable way. There are specific techniques that you can
use to save money, make excellent investments and even investigate
alternative housing where costs are often much more
And when I say alternative housing
I mean it! Everything from living in your vehicle to micro homes,
trailers, cabins, motorhomes, boats, bunkies, container homes, tents the list goes on with many
levels of comfort. And in 2017 thousands of Canadians are doing this
Not every home needs to
be in an expensive subdivision in Canada where huge costs require a 30
year mortgage to pay down. There are alternatives!
When billions of dollars circulate
and build in a given business area there is often great reluctance on
the part of the players to tell you what is really going on. And this is
dangerous. We have seen certain real estate markets in Canada increase
in value over 30% in just one year. In other areas values have
stagnated and are not keeping up with inflation and there are also areas
where values are going down in a buyer's market. There supply exceeds
demand and prices are falling. In our book we warn you what will
happen. And in 2017 we are very close to huge changes in this market.
Changes that will reduce the value of real estate property by billions
of dollars. Changes that will effect our banking system and again
increase the amount
of personal debt in Canada.
You may have noticed that Canadian
Banks are doing very well but that Canadian personal debt is at an all
time high and average savings are shrinking. Banks are doing well
because as the value of real estate climbs so does their revenue from
mortgages. And should the economy improve banks will make bigger
fortunes as the prime lending rate increases. As real estate climbs in
value the revenue from real estate sales commissions also rises. Legal
and advertising fees increase. Property owners increase the rents
for their properties. Our three levels of government collect more for taxes
and fees for services. But as we point out in our book we are
approaching a big change in real estate prices and as that happens there
will be huge changes in the Canadian economy. In fact since
publishing the book our banks are reacting to the pending changes in
Canadian Real Estate that we warned our readers of and they have
started to lay off hundreds of staff.
This book is an investment. We
suggest that it will pay for itself many many times over when you better
understand and then start to apply some of the facts that we present.
And when you encounter a surprising fact put the book down and think
about it for a while. Check out the information on your computer. Ask
for additional information from experts in the field. And some experts
may be reluctant to talk to you about certain facts. And you will see a
trend that the information that we provide to you in this book is true.
It may surprise you to know what is really happening but you will be in
a much better position. On this page we have given you a hint of
what information is included included in our 430 page book. After you
read it you will have a completely different understanding of what real
estate in Canada is all about and what are the best decisions that you
can make. Rich or poor or in the middle there are actions you can take
to have a much happier life.
Yes it is possible to
save and make a lot of money in Canadian real estate and investing in
our book will help make that happen! Unfortunately, is it also possible
to lose a lot of money in Canadian Real Estate and not reading our book
can result in that happening. Making a lot of money is not a bad thing
and reading our book is fun!
give you another example. In the USA usually a property owner actually
owns their property. But in Canada our Queen owns ALL of Canada and an
individual can only have a freehold management right of the Queen's
property! In Canada over 89% of the available land is managed by
our Provincial and Federal governments! In fact in most of our Provinces
the provincial government manages nearly all of the land and the Federal
government only manages national parks and military bases. And did you know that
billions of dollars of criminal money from outside Canada is being money
laundered here? It is called "snow washing". When we say
UnReal REAL-ESTATE CANADA we mean it! There has never been another book
on this topic that actually tells you what is really going on here. Our
goal is to publish books that tell the truth and help you deal with and
benefit from the
challenges in life!
You can purchase your copy
of UnREAL-ESTATE CANADA here from our printer and it will be in
the mail to you between one and three days. It is a great book to read
and share with your friends and family:

neighbors are ....strange. Another interesting fact we warn you about in
our book! And there are inexpensive ways to check that out rather than
finding out after you move into your new home. We show you how to do it!
Here are a very few of the hundreds of
sources we reviewed for our 430 page book- UnReal-Estate Canada
-lots of interesting information! Some of it is ...scary. It is
impossible to be an "expert" in all aspects of Canadian real
estate and that is why we wrote this book to tell you what you need
to know. It is very dangerous to depend on just one source in the real
estate business to help you make your decisions. Each area has their own
objectives and understandably all of them wish to make a profit from
you! When you understand what is really going on you are in a much
better position to make the best decisions. Our book gives you that
balance in understanding that will greatly help you in real estate

Bomber Air Force Climate change in the last few
years has modified our weather and many more forest fires have been
generated. Canada has designed the best water bomber in the world and
this website suggests that squadrons of these aircraft be established in
the RCAF. Links to several videos show how these aircraft work and we
outline the huge advantages that would be generated if this aircraft was
included in our Air Force. We have written to our Prime Ministers and
Premiers and have even submitted a suggested movie series to the CBC
about this idea. Your support would help! Please review this site and if
you agree please write to your government officials supporting it.
