FALL 2019 - Autumn in the lower mainland is always such a beautiful time, with the spectacular visual drama created by mother nature as leaves turn from green to a spectrum of reds and orange. This year, fall has arrived with welcome news from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver! Recent ups and downs in Vancouver's real estate market had left many feeling like the market is in a state of constant decline. But, the Real Estate Board's most recent data actually indicate the opposite. Sales data from this September shows a 46.3 percent year-over-year increase in home sales. Sales of detached homes in September 2019 reached 745, a 46.7 percent increase from September 2018, while sales of apartment homes reached 1,166, a 43.6 percent increase compared to September 2018. That's great news! Not just in Vancouver, but home sales are up right across the country, indicating a wider upward trend. The Canadian Real Estate Association says the number of home sales in September was up 15.5 percent compared with a year ago as sales in the country's big cities climbed higher, reported CTV News.

“We’re seeing more balanced housing market conditions over the last three months compared to what we saw at this time last year,” Ashley Smith, REBGV president said. “Home buyers are more willing to make offers today, particularly in the townhome and apartment markets.” “This is a more comfortable market for people on both sides of a real estate transaction,” said Smith. Through all my years in real estate, my confidence in the Vancouver real estate market has never waned. We live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, consistently ranking in the top 3 globally for livability and desirability. The demand to live in Vancouver continues to climb higher each year. This means recovery is always just around the corner. Sincerely,

Karim Virani

Timing Wins Over Location By Ozzie Jurock, Jurock’s Real Estate Insider It used to be easy. If you could learn to recite 'Location, Location, Location' from memory, you were automatically a real estate expert. But now it's all about timing...

part of town was, or where the most desirable suburban or rural area was, depending on your interest, push a pin into the map at that spot and then go and buy something as close as possible to where the pin was.

In my 1999 book Forget About Location, Location, Location, I argued that we are too enamoured with that time-worn phrase. Imagine, I said, that you if you had bought a single-family house in Burnaby - anywhere for approximately $260,000 in 1990. Imagine also, that you let it go to pot ... roof leaking, front door paint peeling, grass knee high ... you still could have sold it to me for $480,000 in 1995. I go and fix the roof, paint the door, create a lawn you can dine from and in 1999 I would only have received $380,000 for it ... from - you guessed it - shrewd you. You bought it, kept it till last year (yup, ran it down again - but no matter) you got a whopping $1,780,000 for it.

Timing wasn't important because the dynamics never changed. But in the last 20 years location means less and timing became extremely important, particularly for the investor.


Yep, there used to be rules. It used to be easy. If you could learn to recite, "Location, Location, Location" from memory you were automatically a real estate expert.

If you are in an inflationary real estate cycle, the rules are relatively simple. You buy a piece of property utilizing leverage, you wait a certain amount of time for the property to appreciate, then you might sell for a profit and buy something larger or you can borrow on your increased equity and buy something in addition. What could be easier? However, if you're in a flatline segment of an inflation cycle you have to buy below fair market value to establish your profit at the beginning. You have to give greater importance to cash flow considerations. And if you are in an 'unreported inflationary cycle' - as now, you even have a bigger problem.

You simply had to find out where the most desirable

So, we agree that there are no rules because the

What did any of that have to do with location? Had you bought in San Francisco in 1989 you would have lost 30 per cent of the value by 1992. Bought in Phoenix (or anywhere in the US) in 2006 lost your shirt by 2011. Bought the same house, in the same location in 2011 made a fortune by today. (Plus, as a Canadian you made 25% on your currency.) All was due to? ‌ TIMING!


When you look at any market you are looking at a snapshot in time. That's the way it is at that moment. In a month or a year, it might be very different. In real estate investing, the degree to which your timing is accurate is the degree to which you will achieve optimal or minimal results. It is very often the difference between success and failure.


"If you could learn to recite 'Location, Location, Location' from memory, you were automatically a real estate expert. But now it's all about timing..."

marketplace is continually changing, therefore what we must do is learn to read the changes, interpret what the changes mean, and adapt to them. What are the determining factors? Here we come to some good news. The component parts, the determining factors, are not complex or difficult to deal with. You look at international and interprovincial migration, affordability, inventory availability, inflation, and environment of growth. Then you hire your real estate team, a dedicated high quality Realtor, lawyer and a seasoned investment mortgage broker. You can gather your facts from wherever they are available but after you've done that you have to form an opinion. This isn't like religion where you decide on a moral philosophy and then go out and carve it in stone. This is an ever-changing continuum, a soup that is boiling and bubbling and nothing is ever where it was the last time you looked. The difference between 'too soon' and 'too late' is timing! If you watch the trends as they change, you'll be able to time your actions for optimum results.

Always. The last builder and the last developer pay too much for the land, or he takes too long to come to market...and then sales stop. For the homeowner staying in their residence for 10 years it matters not, for the investor however ... the difference of timing ... where we are on this particular or any other cycle ... is vital. For 27 years we at Jurock Real Estate Insider held the Fall OUTLOOK conference, where 12 speakers research, interact and share their view of the future. You would have found quality research, sound forecasts and yet‌YOU had to make the call. So, what does that mean for today's real estate markets? Can the experts really help us? Remember even the experts are guessing. Futurists are never right except by accident. Historians are never wrong. If you had tomorrow's paper you could make millions; if you have yesterday's paper you can wrap fish in it.

So, you must watch for changes. Are listings increasing and dramatically? Are sales slowing? Is a forestry town closing its mill? Is a new super port being built? Will bad news affect real estate values here? Is oil crashing? How many cranes are rising into the sky and is it normal?

Except, contained in yesterday's newspaper are changes that have already started and if you get to them soon enough, interpret them correctly and then act on them, you can do yourself some serious good. It's not necessary for you to have the wisdom of the world at your fingertips. But get good quality information, know who you are - a shark, a flipper or an investor. Pick your market segment, pick your professionals but don't get emotional about it. You will always make the most money on the day you buy ... even (particularly?) today.

Well, I didn't say it was easy. But the last one is a fine predictor. At the end of the cycle we always overbuild.

The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Bentley's First Step Towards Electrification

Bentley is calling it the first true luxury plug-in hybrid! And for it’s 6-figure price tag the new Bentayga Hybrid is certainly the most luxurious electric vehicle in the market. With an exterior that looks exactly like it’s gorgeous gaspowered sibling, the Bentayga hybrid offers über luxury inside it’s cabin - rich leather finishing that comes in 15 different shades, real wood veneer and high-gloss carbon fibre interior panels, and every button and detail assembled to an exceedingly high standard that patrons are accustomed to from a Bentley.



In terms of performance, the Bentayga Hybrid can accelerate from 0 to 60 km/hr in 5.2 seconds reaching a maximum speed of 254 km/hr. It is about 200 percent more efficient than the V-8 model. With its lithium-ion battery pack and a turbocharged 3-liter V6 engine it has a combined horsepower of around 450bhp. It can go up to 50 km in its EV range without summoning the 3.0 V6 petrol engine and the battery re-charges in just 2.5 hours. For Bentley enthusiasts, Bentley's first foray into the electric car market is just one more reason to get behind the wheel of the Bentayga Hybrid.

Luxury Elevated To New Heights

The recent few years, perhaps a decade or so, have seen the meaning of luxury interiors transform dramatically. Today, a new class of uber luxe furniture lines from famed fashion houses and car brands has lifted the luxury interiors industry into the stratosphere. The entrance of players like Armani, Fendi, Bentley, Versace and Bugatti has introduced products of such sumptuous quality, the likes of which may never have been experienced before, perhaps not even during



times of royalty and the British Raj. In Vancouver, this new era of residential royalty was ushered in by the likes Lloyd Bruce Home, with their introduction of the Fendi Casa and Bentley Home lines, located on Nicola Street in Coal Harbour, sometimes called Vancouver's Golden Mile. Entire Armani or Versace themed residences and entire superluxe residential developments themed completely in Armani or Porsche are cropping up in


places like Miami, Dubai, and maybe soon even in Vancouver and Toronto. This elevation to the extremes in quality and luxurious comfort is not limited only to the home interiors category. Within the same time frame of the past few years, we've witnessed the domain of the humble jeep 4x4 taken over by more comfortable family class SUVs, which have now been lifted to new heights with machines like the


Rolls-Royce Cullinan and the Bentley Bentayga. Last year, Lamborghini made a big splash with the introduction of its URUS SUV. Maserati, Aston Martin, Ferrari are all active participants in this new race to the very pinnacle of achievement in class, quality and comfort. We've entered a new golden age of luxury, offering the very finest in quality and comfort in all three of our domains, home, work and travel.
