The challenge here is to get some financing to both buy and fix up houses that does not involve standard 'flipping' (buy, fix up, sell) and the infusion of cash that generates. Instead, it would be all about long term rental-based income.

Note that there appears to be a number of standard governmental biases against lending money to self-employed people - even the most shaky contract worker gets easy mortgages. (Known from personal and shared experience)

Note that this is in Ontario, Canada.

Thoughts? Some types of accountants (or firms), certain banks, funding options, etc?
