ECONOMICS Commercial Leading Indicator June 2019

CLI POINTS TO STABILIZING COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY IN 2019 Q1 The BCREA Commercial Leading Indicator (CLI) rose by 1.3 points to 135.2 in the first quarter of 2019. Compared to this time one year ago, the index is 1.1 per cent higher. Slowing provincial economic activity continued in the first quarter of 2019, with losses in wholesale trade more than offsetting gains in retail trade and manufacturing. Similarly, employment losses in manufacturing outweighed gains in office employment. The financial component of the CLI turned positive in the first quarter of 2019 due to increasing credit spreads and rising Canadian REIT prices,

Quarterly Trends by CLI Components

Q1 Highlights: •

Economic Activity: Retail sales increased 0.5 per cent after adjusting for inflation in the first quarter. Wholesale trade fell for a third consecutive quarter, declining 1.9 per cent in real terms. Sales in the manufacturing sector rose by 0.9 per cent after two straight quarters of decline.

Employment: The CLI employment component was negative for the second consecutive quarter, as continued declines in manufacturing employment outweighed rising job

Variation in the Commercial Leading Indicator can be broken out into three distinct components:

»

The economic activity component of the CLI follows the overall trend in BC’s economy and reflects changes in economic variables shown to lead commercial real estate activity.

»

The employment component reflects changes in the commercial real estate environment, due to changes in the overall business cycle.

»

The financial component acts as an early-warning indicator from financial markets that could signal turning points in the commercial real estate market.

Financial: The benchmark index for Canadian REITs increased 14.3 per cent in the first quarter, likely a result of falling bond yields making REITs more attractive. Risk spreads appear to be returning to more normal levels.

How to determine if downsizing is for you

As men and women retire or approach retirement age, many opt to downsize their homes. Such a decision can save older adults substantial amounts of money while also liberating them from the hassle of maintaining large homes they no longer need. Downsizing to smaller homes or apartments is a significant step, one that homeowners should give ample consideration before making their final decisions. The following are a handful of tips to help homeowners determine if downsizing to smaller homes is the right move. • Get a grip on the real estate market. Downsizing is not solely about money, but it’s important that homeowners consider the real estate market before putting their homes up for sale. Speak with a local realtor or your financial advisor about the current state of your real estate market. Downsizing can help homeowners save money on utilities, taxes and mortgage payments, but those savings may be negated if you sell your house in a buyer’s market instead of a seller’s market. If you think the current market won’t get you the price you are hoping for, delay your downsize until the market rebounds. • Take inventory of what’s in your house. Empty nesters often find that their homes are still filled with their children’s possessions, even long after those children have entered adulthood and left home. If the storage in your home is dominated by items that belong to your children and not you, then downsizing might be right for you. Tell your children you are thinking of downsizing and

invite them over to pick through any items still in your home. Once they have done so and taken what they want, you can host a yard sale, ultimately donating or discarding what you cannot sell. Once all of the items are gone, you may realize that moving into a smaller place is the financially prudent decision. • Examine your own items as well. Your children’s items are likely not the only items taking up space in your home. Take inventory of your own possessions as well, making note of items you can live without and those you want to keep. If the list of items you can live without is extensive, then you probably won’t have a problem moving into a smaller home. If you aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to many of your possessions, then you might benefit from staying put for a little while longer. • Consider your retirement lifestyle. If you have already retired or on the verge of retirement and plan to spend lots of time traveling, then downsizing to a smaller home may free up money you can spend on trips. And if you really do see yourself as a silver-haired jetsetter, then you likely won’t miss your current home because you won’t be home frequently enough to enjoy it. If travel is not high on your retirement to-do list but you have a hobby, such as crafting, restoring classic cars or woodworking, that you hope to turn into a second profession, then you might benefit from staying put and converting your existing space into a workshop. Many retirees downsize their homes, but this decision requires careful consideration of a variety of factors.
