What are the Key Trends in the Growth of Equity and Investment Management Funds?
The Most Important Conference in Q1 Returns: Real Estate in a Low Interest Rate Environment
As 2017 begins, there is some widespread uncertainty about what real estate executives can expect over the next twelve months.
If the cost of capital remains in the status quo, how will this affect the strategies of real estate owners, developers and investors? How is the growth of investment management funds also impact the market? While the 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 2016 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 gateway cities and must now face some re-pricing? 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?
