.ZUIPG.FUSP¤TNJMMJPOEPMMBSIPVTFQSJDFT magine two car lots in the same town. One handles only Ferraris and Maseratis. The other sells Toyotas and Fords. The average price in the first lot is $500,000. In the other lot, where 80 per cent of local residents buy, cars are priced at an average of $30,000. Therefore, the average price of a car in town is $265,000. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reasoning behind much of the media and analyst coverage of Metro Vancouver house prices, which has become so widespread even many residents think it takes more than $1 million to buy a home. Typical is a scary report from BMO Capital Markets last month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The average priced home in Vancouver is now 11.2 times family income, more than double the ratio of a decade ago.â&#x20AC;? And â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is a market that is subject to an elevated risk of a correction,â&#x20AC;? the report intones, hinting prices could collapse. Yet prices for the vast bulk of buyers in Metro Vancouver are already half of the level that has the media and the analysts so worked up. Knock out sales of $1 million plus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; most in three areas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the actual detached

house price is under $600,000 and the real condominium apartment price averages less than $315,000. The findings come in a recent study from Vancouver-based Urban Futures, which used Landcor Data figures to show sales of high-end homes skew the market reporting. Landcor tracks all real estate transactions, not just those reported to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The study breaks down the sales data into five quintiles representing equal sales in price brackets from the highest to lowest. Considering the top quintile (or top 20 per cent of sales by value), which ranged up to $17.5 million, the average house price was a lofty $1.69 million, twice the average price for all sales. But in the remaining 80 per cent of the market â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where the typical buyer is found â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the average price was $591,000, or 27 per cent below the overall average price. Further, in 2010 the average selling price for all condominiums increased to $429,764. But this increase was in large part due to sales at the top of the market, where the most expensive condo sold for $17.5 million. This resulted in a 2010 average condo sale price for the top quintile of $904,338, while the average sales price for the remain-

ing 80 per cent was only $311,069. (These are 2010 prices but Urban Futures notes the same ratio held true in the first quarter of 2011.) The reality is that the vast majority of buyers can still find relatively affordable homes, with detached houses under $650,000 and condos for about half that price. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver notes that one in every five homes sold in May went for less than $350,000. Vancouver home prices are the highest in Canada, but for the majority of buyers they are far below what most media suggests.

“I have found the [manufactured home] parks to be the safest version of a retirement savings plan”

*OWFTUJOHJO NPCJMFQBSLT oday’s manufactured home parks – known until recently as “mobile home parks” and long ago as “trailer parks’ – are far from the trailer-trash image comically portrayed in the Trailer Park Boys of TV and movie fame.

Today, manufactured home parks provide affordable housing for seniors, who usually make up about half the owners, young families starting out and people on a fixed income. The new manufactured homes built today are impressive, comfortable and conform to the highest level of construction codes and standards. They are constructed inside a manufacturing plant away from the elements. There are a wide variety of modular sizes and designs to choose from. Established parks may have older units with additions or carports attached, which, as long as they are well maintained and landscaped, can still be appealing.

$BTIGMPX

As an investment, manufactured home parks are a highly sought-after commodity. The reasons are numerous, but the biggest is the steady cash flow they produce. Because of this, lending institutions have changed their tune over the years and now find them a safe and desirable investment to finance. Appraisals and a phase 1 environmental study are usually required, however, as parks are classed as a commercial investment property. I have found the parks to be the safest version of a retirement savings plan, without your income being controlled by outside influences, such as the stock market. The investment is threefold: the tenants pay your mortgage down, while income after

It is expensive to replace fields, since this requires qualified contractors and, possibly, engineered plans for ministry approval prior to construction. It is always advisable to have the property’s systems inspected by a qualified firm. The electrical system is extremely important as some older parks have overhead wiring, which is unsightly and under-powered (sometimes 60 amps per unit) creating problems with breakers and replacing poles and guy wires, etc. These can all be costly to replace. Today’s standards require 100-amp services to each unit and it is preferred to have the lines placed underground out of sight and virtually maintenance free. • Check zoning: You will want to go to the governing authority or city hall and inquire whether proper zoning is in place, obtain a history of the property and find out if the park can be expanded for added value. Finding a park with an upside of increasing revenue is desirable. Having a common area, visitor parking, paved roadways, street lighting and possibly RV parking would be advantageous.

FEATURE Forestry recovery boosts fortunes, but workers complain rising raw log exports reduce local jobs

5JNCFSUPXOT WESTERN INVESTOR emand from China – and help from the provincial and federal governments – has allowed a series of B.C. forest communities to surge back into timber production, but a huge increase in raw log exports continues to rankle forestry unions,

%

“There have been 24 sawmills reopen in B.C. in the last 24 months,” said Cathy McLeod, MP for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo. “Many local lumber producers are now going back to full operations, recording profits and making major upgrades.” McLeod pointed to the opening of the West Fraser 100 Mile lumber mill, the Aspen Planer sawmill in Savona, the Canfor sawmill operation in Vavenby and the Domtar mill in Kamloops as evidence of the upturn. The recovery is largely based on exports to China, which has been active as a buyer of lumber and even mills. For instance, when four First Nations bands joined forces to resurrect the idled Sigurson sawmill in the Cariboo-Chilcotin region, it was Chinese buyers who were the first customers. The mill, which has been renamed River West Forest Products, represents a financial investment by four Tsilhqot’in communities, according to Joe Alphonse, chairman of the Tsilhqot’in group. Alphonse said the project has created 25 jobs for a region hit hard by the forestry sector downturn and launched a new business relationship between First Nations and Chinese lumber buyers. The bands bought the mill, which is near Hanceville, for a rock-bottom price that was less than $1 million. Soon, Chinese buyers were on the mill’s doorstep looking to buy rough lumber. “We weren’t advertising, we weren’t mar-

keting and they were showing up,” Alphonse said. River West began churning out rough-cut lumber on one shift in April, but Alphonse hopes to get the operation up to two shifts soon. He said the mill uses only mountain pine beetle-killed trees in an effort to process the Interior’s vast stands of dead trees. “We’re surrounded by dead forest, and this mill is earmarked to deal with strictly the dead forest that’s standing around us,” he said. “In our view, the mill is part of the solution, part of converting the lodge pole pine back to a living stand.”

.JMMTPQFO

Other mills – and mill towns – are also coming back to life. • A closed sawmill in Kitwanga, near Terrace, that is due to re-open, thanks in part to the demand from China. Mill owner Pacific BioEnergy said an estimated 60 per cent of the production would be sent to China. Prince George-based Pacific BioEnergy bought the mill and an area forest licence out of receivership in September 2009 to provide a base to build a pellet plant in the area. The new owners, however, now plan to run it as a sawmill, with a pellet facility added later. • The United Steelworkers Union and Tolko reached an agreement to restart Tolko’s Creekside mill in Williams Lake. The strategy will see Tolko combining several log yards, with most shipments to Asia. The mill was set to reopen in June, but, because parts of the mill have been idled since 2008, extra time may be required before the mill is operational. If the Asian market is secured, the company has agreed to run one full shift with from 150 to 200 workers. • Canfor is reopening its Vavenby mill. The company announced it intends to re-start its Vavenby operation in the third quarter of this

More raw logs are moving to mills across B.C., but unions say too many are being shipped to China for processing.

year, putting up to 140 unionized and nonunionized staff back to work. The Vavenby sawmill was shut down in 2009. Canfor plans to spend $24 million on upgrading the sawmill and planer mill before reopening, said spokesperson Dave Lefebvre. The mill will start first with just one shift. When at full production, the mill will produce approximately 240 million board feet of lumber on an annual basis. The company expects most of the production to go to the United States, with some to Japan and some high-grade products to the rest of Asia. Currently, Canfor is sending the equivalent of three mills’ production to China. • Vaagen Brothers Lumber Co. plans to re-

start a West Kootenay sawmill in Midway, B.C. The Midway mill had sat vacant for three years before residents in the town of 630 decided to buy it. Boundary Sawmill, the local corporation, has signed a 10-year lease with Vaagen Brothers, which will run a small-diameter log mill similar to its operation in nearby Colville. Vaagen Brothers expects to employ about 35 workers at the Midway mill when it reopens this fall. The sawmill was formerly owned by Pope & Talbot, an Oregon company that filed for bankruptcy. B.C. residents who buy shares in Boundary Sawmill will get a 30 per cent refundable tax credit from the province. The lumber that originates in Midway will probably end up in distant, overseas markets, such as Australia and China, according to Vaagen Brothers. • ROC Holdings Ltd., a subsidiary of a Chinese company, has bought the Skeena Sawmill in Terrace. Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell said the longerrange goal is to have lumber produced by ROC flow into the supply stream of its parent company in China. “They build what they would call subdivisions but what we would call cities for 100,000 people,” said Bell following the April 4 announcement that West Fraser had found a buyer for its closed sawmill.

-PHTIJQNFOUT

Bell added that the shipments of log and lumber exports bound for China and Asia is starting to outstrip port capacity. This is a key issue with forestry unions, who have called for an end to raw log exports. They note that raw log exports have tripled since 2009, with the lion’s share headed to China. Thousands of Asian mills, using basic equipment and plenty of cheap labour, are cutting B.C. and Russian logs into lumber and slicing two-by-fours into higher-value products, according to the United Steelworkers. “ The result in B.C. is a jobless recovery,” according to Steve Hunt, whose United Steelworkers represents the province’s unionized forest workers.◆

COVER Prized in the city, waterfront is a bargain along the B.C. coast with some prices at 2004 levels

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a big gap between vendor expectations [of prices] and the market reality,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Lester of Colliers Internationalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Unique Properties group, which often markets high-end waterfront property. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B.C. coastal market, he said, is characterized by a huge number of listings and flat sales. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Gulf [Islands] is not moving at all,â&#x20AC;? Lester said, adding that the sales downturn is seen in both raw waterfront land and in potential income-generating property, such as fishing lodges. It is a far cry from four or five years ago when there was a frenzy for any type of waterfront real estate along the B.C. coastline, a trend that led to some poorly thought out commercial projects, he said. Lester said the withdrawal of Alberta and U.S. buyers following the 2009 recession has meant waterfront vendors must now depend on a smaller â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and less wealthy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pool of domestic buyers, and he said prices have fallen to what could be record lows. He points to one property, not a Colliers listing, on DeCourcey Island near Nanaimo where one acre of serviced waterfront is up for sale for $199,900. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at this long term,â&#x20AC;? Lester said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it could be a great investment.â&#x20AC;? Other Vancouver Island realtors agree, noting that waterfront prices on Quadra Island and even Vancouver Island are now in the bargainbasement bin.

Lorne Gait of Coast Realty Group in Ladysmith is offering a classic old oceanfront cottage on a 7,600-square-foot waterfront freehold lot for $399,900, 40 per cent below what the property may have sold for back in boom times. He said there are other waterfront parcels on the east side of Vancouver Island now selling for $550,000 to $750,000, which would have started at $850,000 in 2006.

Waterfront prices on Quadra Island are now close to 2004 prices, agreedNancy Allweather of Discovery Islands Real Estate on Quadra. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all based on supply and demand,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and now there is more supply than demand.â&#x20AC;? Discovery has â&#x20AC;&#x153;ideal waterfront cottagesâ&#x20AC;? listed from under $600,000, including a onequarter-acre lot with a 2,000-square-foot house at $459,000. At the Bold Bay waterfront development on Quadra, prices start at $454,000 for five acres of road-access oceanfront, complete with a new 770-square-foot timber-frame beachfront cottage. Meanwhile, the 620-acre Cape on Bowen Island development started marketing last month, offering 29 10-acre waterfront lots at $2 million each, â&#x20AC;&#x153;dramatically belowâ&#x20AC;? what

they would have been priced at a few years ago, according to a spokesperson for the developer, Leeda Development Group. A Royal LePage survey of B.C. waterfront cottage sales shows that prices have fallen on other waterfront parcels close to Vancouver. On the southern Sunshine Coast, a 35-minute ferry ride from West Vancouver, waterfront prices are off at least 20 per cent to 30 per cent

from the peak, local realtors say. Recently, the price of a 1.5-acre land-access waterfront parcel with a dock and a small cabin near Sechelt was cut by nearly $30,000 to $299,500.

In the Vancouver region the cache of waterfront remains strong, with large developers starting some of the largest riverfront projects ever seen. The biggest example is River District, a 130acre residential and commercial development on the Fraser River in south Vancouver. Once known as the East Fraser Lands, the site is the location of the former Canadian White Pine mill and one of the last pieces of undeveloped waterfront land in the city. ParkLane Homes and Polygon, two of B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest home builders, will begin construction this year. The River District develtopment plan features a mix of townhomes, low-and mid-rise apartments and highrise towers. The future phases of the community will also include shops, a grocery and small formattretail, a community plaza, two new schools and a community centre. The City of Vancouver and ParkLane have

already unveiled plans for the 6,000-squarefoot community centre. Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, who attended the River District launch, called the announcment â&#x20AC;&#x153;a momentous occasionâ&#x20AC;? that opens â&#x20AC;&#x153;a new chapter in the story of Vancouver. This remediated brownfield site, which stretches a kilometre-and-a-half along the banks of the Fraser River, is getting a new identity.

According to the Royal LePage survey, most investors agree, with 89 per cent of Canadians surveyed saying that buying a vacation home is a good investment. The annual Re/Max Recreational Report, released this spring, says this is the summer to get deals in B.C., as prices are at or near bottom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opportunities that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been seen in years are now presenting themselves, especially on the West Coast,â&#x20AC;? said Elton Ash, regional executive vice-president, Re/Max of Western Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prices are down as much as 20 per cent from peak levels reported in 2006-2007, bringing ownership within reach to many potential purchasers. The strengthening oil sector has also brought Albertans back into the mix, driving demand for both local and coastal B.C. properties. 2011 could be the turning point.â&#x20AC;?

False Creek. The building is a tower laid horizontally across two smaller supporting towers. The top tower links the two supporting towers, which are parallel to each other, and spans a 25,000-square-foot central courtyard. In all, the LEED development will rise 18 or 19 storeys and offer 304 residential units in two towers, including the horizontal section. Final Vancouver city approval was expected in July with completion by 2013 at the earliest. For those vendors holding waterfront property outside of the Lower Mainland - and as far east as Albertaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sylvan Lake - the return of rollicking demand and higher prices would be welcomed. While both Royal LePage and Re/Max forecast a strong recovery starting this summer, vendors may recall that the same predictions were made in both 2009 and 2010.â&#x2014;&#x2020;

FEATURE Golf courses adjust to challenging times as fewer players, competition lead to discounted rates

WESTERN INVESTOR esidents of Prince George consider Pine Valley Golf Centre, a par-three course with a 2,446-yard fairway, a public amenity. Owned by the city since the 1960s but overseen by a private contractor, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return much to municipal coffers. The driving range was sold for development in the late 1990s, delivering a significant hit to revenues, but the course continues to provide an in-town option for golfers. Its relatively flat fairway is especially attractive to senior players.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We work closely with the contractor to keep the rates as low as possible,â&#x20AC;? Brad Beckett, manager, recreation and cultural services for Prince George, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty close to breaking even.â&#x20AC;? The other major course in town is thePrince George Golf and Curling Club property, which will be sold under plans to relocate the course to a new site north of the Nechako River in Harper Valley. The clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old course will be redeveloped, including a portion of the adjacent Pine Valley course. But the paths the two golf courses are taking highlight the challenges facing the overbuilt, tax-hit golf industry in B.C. While municipal courses offer a cheap alternative to clubs and private courses, market forces are requiring golf centres of all stripes to be business-savvy.

1SPGJUQSFTTVSF

The pressures facing course owners and operators are many, according to Kris Jonasson, executive director of the provincial sport association British Columbia Golf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Owning a golf course is a very difficult business to make a profit in,â&#x20AC;? Jonasson said. Golf courses now have to charge HST on green fees, as well as food and beverage ser-

vices, neither of which bore the old provincial sales tax. Meanwhile, the number of golfers in the province has declined, boosting competition for market share. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The HST is just one part of a very complex puzzle,â&#x20AC;? Jonasson said. The proliferation of golf courses in the province and ensuing competition is the top reason he identifies for the challenges operators face. Wildstone Golf Course near Cranbrook opened June 1, the latest in a string of course that have opened across the province in recent year, most notably on Vancouver Island and in the Okanagan where golf-oriented real estate developments have fuelled course construction. The ambitious construction plans could be the biggest risk Jonasson sees to the industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that we may be overbuilt now in terms of the number of golf courses that we have given the number of golfers probably has a bigger impact than the HST does,â&#x20AC;? he said. The one area of the province where competition is limited is the land-tight Lower Mainland. Here, private clubs grab the top end of the market, while municipal courses fill a similar niche to Pine Valley in Prince George. Yet the operating philosophy is significantly different in Metro Vancouver compared with Prince George. Rather than being satisfied to charge rates low enough to break even, courses run by Vancouver, North Vancouver and Burnaby have adopted an entrepreneurial approach to the business. Vancouver, for example, spent $10.5 million repositioning its courses; Burnaby also adjusted its management approach. This is sharp contrast to some Canadian cities, which are selling off their golf course, citing low income. A recent audit in Winnipeg, for example, found that its three city-owned courses are more than $8 million in debt and losing about $1 million per year. Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz said the time

has come for the city to decide whether to sell the courses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is happening right across North America â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just more courses than are required,â&#x20AC;? the mayor said. According to the independent auditors who examined the finances of Winnipeg Golf Services, more than 70 U.S. municipalities and at least five in Canada were attempting to sell two short courses and two driving ranges. their golf courses in 2010. The culmination of a decade of planning, the clubhouse adheres to a strict business plan $JUZPXOFEDPVSTFT that reflects the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to David Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor, assistant director of golf operating the course â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and its other properties operations for Burnaby, believes that municipal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as a business. courses can be profitable.

3&40354from A21 golf pros, rental cars and retail operations. The operations are kept in-house, allowing Burnaby – unlike smaller municipalities with just one course – to take advantage of economies of scale. One superintendent oversees turf at all courses, for example, and powerful software allows it to track maintenance and operations costs to keep expenses in line with budgets. The close tabs Burnaby keeps on course expenses supported the decision to install 120 kilometres of drainage pipes on its fairways. “We spent $800,000 or $900,000 per golf course, but we recover from heavy rains in two to three hours. We used to recover two to three weeks,” O’Connor said. “We’re the driest golf courses in the Lower Mainland.”

Still, declining demand means golf courses risk getting soaked by downward pressure on fees. Courses across the Lower Mainland have been dropping prices to attract players in the face of declining demand. While some peg the drop at as much as 25 per cent, others are more conservative. The picture is complex, a reflection of the variety of influences discouraging players from teeing off. Rita Rennie, corporate marketing manager for Golf BC, which operates courses across B.C. and in Hawaii, said the weather, exchange rates, passport requirements for U.S. travellers and other factors influencing the tourist trade

have all hit the game. Courses at resorts have been hit particularly hard. Golf BC’s courses in the Okanagan, including the Okanagan Golf Club and Gallagher’s Canyon properties in Kelowna, saw prices drop because more courses are competing for fewer tourist dollars. Meanwhile, its courses in Whistler have seen fees decline and adjustments to the value proposition players enjoy. While some courses in Whistler have seen green fees drop by as much as $50 a round , GolfBC’s Nicklaus North course dropped its rack rates from $175 to $149 – but the requirement to use a motorized golf cart was also removed. “There’s a lot more people wanting to walk,” Rennie said. Furry Creek, in contrast, saw peak-season rates cut from $109 to $99. The course is becoming established once again after taking a hit during construction of the Sea-to-Sky Highway, Rennie explained. Players realize they can get from downtown Vancouver to Furry Creek in about 25 minutes – faster than a drive to UBC after work. Courses that are offering lower fees are also responding to the market, introducing more rate options than in the past to be more competitive and responsive to player demand. “There’s definitely, for the value-conscious golfer, a lot of options at many of the courses,” Rennie said. “Some courses that in the past have not offered variable rates throughout the day or the season are maybe looking at that now.”◆

uyers lined up for three days in Richmond last month for a chance to purchase a new condominium, while, a week earlier, more than 400 buyers crowded into a New Westminster preconstruction sales office and snapped up $50 million worth of new apartments in less than two hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen local buyers Buyers bought $50 million in condos in less lineup for new condo developthan two hours at the Eight West project in New ments like this in the last three Westminster. years,â&#x20AC;? said Pilothouse Real Estate Marketing president Bill Morrison, who led the marketing of the Eight West project in New Westminster. Morrison said buyers snatched up the 79 suites in phase 1 in 45 minutes while the second phase of 70 condos sold in 60 minutes. Eight West made headlines in May when itsdeveloper, Wanson Development, announced it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t charging the controversial harmonized sales tax (HST) on its condos, which started at $168,000. In Richmond, marketing agents rushed to bring blankets, tents and Wi-Fi connections to the sales site of the Quintet project where buyers began lining up three days in advance of the sales office opening. The Wi-Fi service allowed potential buyers to watch the first game of the Stanley Cup playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phase one of the development involving the first two of five towers sold out as soon as it was put on the market last fall,â&#x20AC;? said Quintet sales director Barrett Sprowson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were anticipating a lot of buyer interest, but the lineups well ahead of the sale have completely taken us by surprise.â&#x20AC;? Quintet Richmond, a seven-acre development in downtown Richmond, will feature aTrinity Western University campus, a community centre, a 75-foot indoor lap pool, private dining areas and a two-acre rooftop garden. The first 100 of 300 suites in phase two of the development had prices starting at $249,900 for one-bedroom suites. Two-bedroom suites start at $359,900. Quintet, by Canada Sunrise Development Corp., is scheduled for completion in 2015, with phase 1 scheduled to open in 2013. Meanwhile, resales of condominium apartments across Greater Vancouver trackedlower in May, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. Sales, at 1,228 units, were down 9.3 per cent from May of 2010.
