A Message from the Conference Co-Chairs

Kris Boyce

Greg Speirs

The successes of 2013 will prepare investors to get even more excited for 2014, says conference co-chair Kris Boyce.

A

s the chief executive officer of Greenwin Inc., a full service real estate firm in central Canada, Boyce is extremely optimistic about future market performance. “2013 was a great year for many people. A lot of our clients were making some great purchases; some were selling and making great money. Everybody is hoping the interest rates don’t go too crazy and they can continue into 2014 with a little bit of caution, but still seeing the growth.” In the meantime, major market players are gearing up for redevelopment beginning next year. “We’re looking at our existing properties, we’ve applied for permits, and we’ll be doing some building in 2014. I think it’s going to be a great year for our markets, a lot of shovels in the ground, even though no one is speaking publicly about that right now.” Boyce believes the most important indicator for real estate lies in employment and job growth. “As long as we’re in a thriving economy where people are investing in our cities, and we continue to have growth centers, the job growth will continue our success. If that changes, that could be a concern. “This year, a lot of people will be talking about not just condos but also muti-residentials. It’s not a bad word and people should be speaking about it.” Greg Speirs, senior vice president of investment management at Realstar Management, is more cautious about the year to come. “The investment market is more balanced between buyers and sellers. momentum for the market has slowed down. We’re not in a down phase but in a stabilization phase, where people are looking more carefully at deals, taking the time to evaluate not only if it’s the right asset but, ‘Am I going in at the right price?’” he says.

Much of the strong investor demand in the first half of the year seems to have settled down following the June increase in interest rates. The impact of higher interest rates has meant the financial models used to develop pricing strategies for assets needed to be adjusted. “Similarly, REITs were impacted by their unit prices being reduced materially; ultimately, they will have more difficulty raising capital,” says Speirs. However, Speirs says they will continue to look at new projects while considering ways to enhance the value of their existing pool of assets. This will make them more competitive, he says, in a market where “we’re seeing more innovation in services provided to tenants,” particularly among condo developers, US multi residential operators, and even the hospitality sector.

HUGE, UNFETTERED AND LIQUID,

U.S. residential market attracting investors “The sheer number of people in the United States leads to a massive number of households being formed each year,” observed Milestone Apartments REIT CEO Rob Landin. “The population of Canada is about 34 million. The population of Texas is about 34 million.”

M

ilestone – which since March has been listed on the TSX as a Canadian mutual fund trust – has invested heavily in garden apartments in the Southeast and Southwest United States, where Americans attracted by sunbelt jobs are joined by more than 1.2 million immigrants flooding north annually, driving residential growth. “Most of those folks are renters,” noted Landin, whose firm only owns properties in the United States. Milestone’s two- and three-storey, 20-plus acre sites include “significant amenities such as pools, business centres, clubhouses, tennis courts and playgrounds.” “The majority of apartment product in Canada is highrise,” Landin contrasted. “It’s an older-stock, highrise product which offers a much different experience.”

“The other big difference is rent controls,” he continued, “which primarily governs the Canadian market. Where we operate, we don’t have any.” “That lets us create asset value through renovation and management efficiency,” Landin explained, “increasing rent as well as the quality of the experience for the tenant.” Size also gives Milestone’s 1,000-person, vertically integrated staff significant buying leverage, operational efficiency, access to deals, and the ability to implement its business and investment strategies in a very timely and seamless manner, he added. “The multifamily space in the United States is a very large and liquid asset class, with some $100 million in transactions during the last 12 months,” Landin said. “Historically it has been a very liquid market, continues to be and we expect it to remain so for the foreseeable future.” ■ Robert Frank

TENANTS SENSIBLE WHEN

Choosing where to live

Mark Rousseau

A survey of 10,000 tenants across Canada conducted by Metroland Media last spring shows that while most tenants remain sensible when deciding where to live, they are also driven by brand recognition. Canadian tenants also use technology to a lesser extent than might be assumed by extrapolating U.S. data.

he first seven elements that determine tenant choices are fairly stable across the country, says Mark Rousseau, Metroland’s managing director of revenue. Most respondents (89%) cited cost as the most important element in choosing what to rent. After that, important issues were: cleanliness of building (81%), safety (69%), parking (58%), neighbourhood reputation (55%), nearby social activities and shopping (48%) and local availability of schools and work (50%). “We have another dozen or so factors too, but the ranking depends on the province, city size, age, household income, and whether the survey respondent lived in a condo or a general apartment rental,� said Rousseau. Branding also influences them. “Sixty percent of tenants identified branding as an important factor,� said Rousseau. “Sometimes groups were looking for specific buildings or property management groups they believed would provide the experience they want. It’s very important for people in certain demographics to find the right property management firms.�

Important Factors for Cdn Tenants Cost of Rent Cleanliness of Building Building Safety Tenant parking Neighbourhood Reputation Social/Shopping Nearby Schools/Work Nearby Public Transit Nearby Building/PM Service Level Building Storage

Similar studies conducted in the United States found that property owners could reach 70% of their tenants through smart phones, but that won’t work here. Just as many Canadians own such devices, but less than a quarter of them use mobile internet to find rental properties unless they are aged between 18 and 34, when use rises to almost half. Canadian tenants conduct their search by looking at apartment listings on the web, asking for referrals or consulting printed advertising. More than half (51%) found homes by simply driving through the area. â–

TIGHTER CAPITAL, SLOWER SALES squeezing smaller developers Steven Gross

“While the decrease in condo sales that we’ve seen during the past year or two is probably going to continue for the next 12 months,” forecasts Steven Gross, “rising rents have, at the same time, made the development of new rental apartments viable.”

“C

onsequently, many smaller condo developers who no longer have the same access to debt capital are now considering converting their projects to apartments and/or selling them to rental developers,” remarked Bentall Kennedy’s vice president, investment management. Gross attributes part of the change to demand driven by boomers returning downtown after their offspring have decamped. “It has driven up rents a bit, plus CMHC has made home ownership more difficult and costly,” he observed. By rightsizing suite design, Gross explained, developers have reduced wasted and dead space in new projects, resulting in much more efficient use of space.

Canadian Apartment Investment Report / SEPTEMBER 2013

“Nonetheless, it’s not the cost of construction that has made developing new apartment buildings economically viable,” he observed. “Rather, it is rising rents.

Paul Morassutti

According to Paul Morassutti, executive vice president & senior managing director, valuation & advisory services at CBRE, Canada’s multi-residential market remains very strong. During our interview, Morassutti said the multi-residential market is coming off a record year of investment volumes with pricing at historic highs. Vacancy Rate by Market Vacancy Rate (%) 4.0%

s a result of a steady demand for residential housing, Morassutti did mention that there was “…an increasing amount” of purpose-built residential development activity across the country, and likely more to come, but not enough too materially affect the nation’s vacancy rates. He also mentioned that he wasn’t overly concerned about the amount of condominium units being offered for rent since “condo” rents and “conventional” apartment rents are substantially different price points. However, if the condo market were to weaken significantly, this price gap would narrow and the impact could be bigger. Morassutti also points to on-going demand stimulus in the form of continued strong immigration trends as a positive attribute. Western Canada in particular has seen an increasing amount of immigration and interprovincial migration. Not surprisingly, both Calgary and Edmonton have registered the lowest vacancy rates in the nation while the national vacancy rate (2.5%) has remained steady for over a decade. While the multi-residential market continues to reflect enviable market fundamentals, Morassutti did mention that the era of ever decreasing interest rates may well be over. Although national capitalization rates are as low as they have ever been at around 5.0%, he believes that investors should pay attention to the speed and the severity of the increase in long-term bond yields that shook up the market earlier this summer. Aside from his own observations, he believes that opinion is still divided about where interest rates will go but even so, “…we live in interesting times.” ■
