Here are some other reasons to invest in 463 Danforth Avenue….

Reliable Tenants

One of the most compelling reasons to invest in 463 Danforth Ave is the tenants.

Both tenants have a Triple-A credit rating (the best possible) making them far less likely to default.

A Triple-A credit rating is especially important in these uncertain economic times. It also means buyers can sell their property in the future for more money or acquire better financing terms.

Besides a perfect credit rating, 463 Danforth offers buyers a Triple Net Lease.

That means tenants pay all the property expenses, including building insurance, real estate taxes and maintenance fees.

These expenses are paid in addition to rental fees and utility costs, thus saving you, the buyer, thousands of dollars!

Another advantage of triple net leases is the lack of risk.

According to Investopedia:

Triple net leased properties have become popular investment vehicles for investors because they provide low-risk steady income.

463 Danforth Ave is perfect for cautious investors looking for a dependable source of revenue!

Let’s look at these tenants in more detail….

Tenant #1: Fiorentina

Fiorentina’s huge windows catch the eye of passersby, tantalizing them with views of delicious food and happy customers.

Once inside, Fiorentina dazzles with chic décor and accessories, such as its ceiling fan, strings of light-bulbs and wall-mounted art.

blogTO describes it thus:

Everything is singing with dark wood tones in here, adding to an already warm and cozy vibe. …It’s crowded in Cafe Fiorentina with people lining up for tables…

This warm and cozy atmosphere draws customers by the dozens.

The restaurant is immensely popular, having accumulated hundreds of 5-star reviews and being featured on numerous best-of lists.

Another point in favour of Fiorentina is its age—it’s been in business for over 7 years.

Considering almost 60% of restaurants fail in their first year and 80% by their fifth, Fiorentina proves it has staying power.

And it’s still going strong during this pandemic, offering curbside pickup and contactless delivery.

This pristine kitchen is where the magic happens.

Fantastic food, great ambiance, a steadfast following, and years of success as a business—Fiorentina is the ideal tenant.

Tenant #2: Kumon

The second floor is home to Kumon, the internationally acclaimed educational services company.

Kumon’s popularity can’t be overstated.

On Entrepreneur’s 2020 list of Top Global Franchises, Kumon ranks #12 out of 500!

In fact, it has 28,000 students in Ontario alone, and millions more around the world.

And that’s exactly what you get with Kumon as a tenant: international brand name recognition.

You also get reliability….

Like Fiorentina, which is still up and running despite COVID-19, local Kumon centres are providing instructional material and remote support for students and parents.

And since both of 463 Danforth’s tenants are operating during this pandemic, buyers will continue to receive a steady income.

Kumon’s popularity will likely rise in the coming years.

Because COVID-19 has disrupted the school year for millions of kids, parents will be anxious for them to catch up when classes resume.

Although online learning has benefits for older kids, experts suggest a “structured environment” is required for younger children.

As a result, more parents are enrolling their kids in private tutoring services such as Kumon.

Expect to see a lot more kids in these chairs.

Name recognition, thousands of potential customers and corona-proof functionality—that’s what you get with Kumon as a tenant.
