The Most Important Conference in Q1 Returns: Real Estate in a Low Interest Rate Environment
As 2018 begins, there is some widespread uncertainty about what real estate executives can expect over the next twelve months.
Where is the cost of capital heading? How will this affect the strategies of real estate owners, developers and investors? Why are investment management funds growing? What is their impact the market? While there is a large supply of debt and equity capital, the question facing many is how do you access it and at what price.
Will REITs and REOCs continue to grow and be able to raise equity more easily than in 2018 in the public markets? What is likely to happen to their unit and share prices?
Concerns still remain about the ultimate direction of the condominium development across the country. To what extent has the housing market peaked in Toronto and Vancouver and is now facing some re-pricing? Will Montreal continue to be more buoyant? How will the latest federal policies affect this market?
Notwithstanding the aforementioned issues, does commercial, industrial and multi-unit residential real estate investment remain fairly attractive to domestic and foreign investors?
Are quality real estate assets now priced beyond perfection? Have cap rates been pushed too low? Is the flight to quality still relevant? What will all of these factors mean for the performance of the capital and the credit markets in Canada and the United States over the next twelve months?
