SPRING 2020 - While there's no real crystal ball to predict the future of real estate, the 2019 real estate data and a number of strong economic factors are indicating a very good 2020 for Greater Vancouver real estate. Let's take a closer look. "The Metro Vancouver real estate market picked up significantly during the second half of the year", says Ashley Smith, president of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. The number of homes listed for sale was 7.6 per cent below historic averages resulting in a 23 per cent STAL (sales-to-active-listings) ratio, which is favourable for sellers. "If this trend continues, we will enter a seller's market over time", says Smith. We're talking about a "seller's market", a term we haven't heard in Greater Vancouver for some time, and welcome news for home owners. This has already happened in the townhome and condo markets. There's further good news from the Chief Economist of the BC Real Estate Association, Brendon Ogmundson.

He says that “Housing markets across the province staged a strong recovery in the second half of 2019,” said BCREA. “This sets up 2020 to be a much more typical year than what markets have experienced recently.” Residential unit sales across BC in December were up 48.9 per cent from December 2018, and the average residential price in BC saw an 8.7 per cent increase from December 2018. Total sales dollar volume saw a 61.8 per cent increase year-over-year, landing at $3.9 billion. This is great news for the BC real estate market. This issue, we're also featuring a couple of articles on real estate beyond our own shores, in the coveted "vacation home" territory, and also London, UK, the land of Brexit. Don't forget to check them out. Sincerely,

Karim Virani

Own A Slice Of Paradise This May Be The Time To Buy Your Luxury Vacation Home

Luxury Residence in Mexico, listed at approx US $1.3M

Dreaming of warmer pastures amidst the winter gloom? The post-holiday season is the perfect time to brighten up with the prospect of exotic destinations around the globe. Whether a beachfront home, mountain chalet, traditional cottage or a modern mansion, vacation residences and second homes are rapidly capturing their share of the real estate investment market, with property sales in desirable locales climbing consistently year to year. We've scoured the trends and expert forecasts to bring you the lowdown on some of this year's hottest global markets. These five regions around the world are rife with stunning scenery, a plethora of amenities, and fantastic value for finding that new luxury vacation spot, investment property, or home-away-fromhome.

Belize This little slice of tropical paradise on Central America's eastern coast is beloved for its turquoise waters, mild climate, and a thriving recreational scene, while still keeping a more affordable profile than many Caribbean destinations. On its largest island, Ambergris Caye, a beachfront luxury home will run around $1M; while in the lush mountainous region of Cayo, $500,000 can get you a spacious property on plenty of acreage. Panama Straddling Pacific and Caribbean coasts, sunny Panama has been topping every foreign real-estate investment list lately, and with good reason. The vibrant country has everything from beautiful beaches, to urban nightlife and

VIRANI REAL ESTATE ADVISORS


entertainment, to captivating colonial architecture. The modern capital, Panama City, remains a strong buyer's market, with high-end, amenity-packed beachfront condos on the west coast starting at approximately $300,000. Mexico Mexico remains one of North America's most popular tourist destinations, and it's easy to see why. Pristine beaches, unparalleled scenery, and a wealth of cultural and natural treasures draw in crowds of tourists each year. Those looking for a more exclusive experience prefer the quieter destinations of Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific side and the beaches of Riviera Maya over buzzing Cancun. Another gem worth discovering is Tulum, a peaceful, inexpensive resort town set 80 miles from Cancun and surrounded by protected jungle and Mayan ruins. Portugal With more and more of Europe oversaturated with visitors and rising prices, southern Portugal remains one of the European countries still prime for investment

opportunity. Though Lisbon is a trove of cultural heritage, entertainment, and cuisine, it's also worthwhile to explore the less-known regions such as Porto, the Algarve coast, and quaint seaside towns such as Cascais, where fully-appointed luxury villas start at around $1M USD. United States The great American nation may be an obvious choice for real estate, with landscapes, climates, and budgets spanning the entire spectrum to suit any buyer's fancy. That said, a few choice locales notably come out on top in recent years when it comes to vacation investment properties. While Florida's sandy beaches, from Destin to Cocoa Beach, are a consistent safe bet, mountain regions, such as Sevierville, Tennessee, nestled in the Smoky Mountain range, have topped last year's charts as the number one place to purchase a vacation rental. Hawaii also remains in favor, with regions such as Kihei offering more affordable and easier-entrance options when it comes to the islands' tight rental property regulations.

The

'Brexit Effect' on London

43rd Floor Valiant Tower, London, US $1.2 M With its cosmopolitan allure, world-renowned heritage, and central location at the hub of Europe, London has historically been considered a prime choice for real estate investment. The dynamic city consistently draws in a diverse crowd of professionals, tourists, and investors looking to benefit from everything England's capital city has to offer.

W

The city has always been a magnet for overseas investors, with buyers from Asia, the Middle East, North America and other nations accounting for over 80% of last year's real estate transactions – and that's not about to change.

18

Despite the uncertainties surrounding Brexit for the last couple years and the UK economy in recent years, the city remained a lucrative investment option, with global investors continuing to take advantage of London's potential for capital appreciation. The Office for National Statistics reports that the average London home has nearly doubled in value from 2008 to 2018, with the market already rebounding from prior correction by the end of 2019 and year-on-year growth rising to 2.2%. With Boris Johnson's win in the December 2019 elections, the market for luxury housing in particular is predicted to

VIRANI REAL ESTATE ADVISORS


spike even higher in what forecasters are calling the "Boris bounce". Transactions involving homes priced over £5m saw thirty percent growth in a month following the election results, a representative of Savills told the Financial Times; while Homes and Property reported a forecast of 18 per cent price increase in prime central London by 2024. The finance gurus predict that now with Brexit certainty and much-needed political stability, combined with London's unique strengths – namely, the diverse opportunities for both residential and commercial investment, an openminded employment sector that welcomes innovation, and

rapidly growing infrastructure and industry development – the real-estate market will continue to strengthen. With game-changing Crossrail due for completion, several upand-coming areas in particular should be on the radar for potential investors. Among these are Earls Court, Croydon, and King's Cross, rapidly growing hubs attracting new companies and expansions, and the residential demand that goes with them. Nevertheless, traditional upmarket neighbourhoods such as Kensington, Mayfair, and Westminster, continue to offer attractive opportunities for mature long-term appreciation.

Vancouver House "One of the most anticipated buildings to shape the world in 2020", CNN

T

The breathtaking design of Bjarke Ingels’ brainchild is set to become Vancouver skyline’s most iconic and recognizable landmark. Aptly named Vancouver House, the masterfully sculpted building was recently recognized by CNN as one of the 10 most anticipated buildings set to shape the world in 2020. It is quite unmistakably a quintessential Bjarke Ingels design, with the tower twisting up from a triangular base into a wide rectangular top, gaining mass and width as it rises, appearing to defy the very laws of gravity. Westbank envisions Vancouver House as a vibrant core to the new waterfront neighbourhood called the ‘Beach District’. The 59-storey tower includes 375 residential homes, 106 rental homes, a unique new retail, workspace and amenity space. The 515-foot tower is a part of a composite of four buildings set between the off-ramps of the Granville Street bridge. The main tower offers 1, 2 & 3 bedroom homes with opulent living standards and striking views of Granville Island, False Creek, English Bay and the ocean waters beyond with a myriad of islands. Floorto-ceiling glass walls run across the entire facade, while each home is designed with generous balcony space to take in the fabulous coastal outdoors. Spectacular 3-storey penthouses come with outdoor kitchens and a hot tub located on massive roof top terraces, also available to purchase in this coveted Vancouver address. The Vancouver House building represents history in the making, and is sure to become one of the most sought after residential buildings in Vancouver for years to come. The opportunity to get a slice of this rare and exclusive pie won’t be around long. Contact the Virani Real Estate Advisors team for an opportunity to view and purchase a dream home within this one-of-a-kind building. Call 604.695.1000 or email info@virani.ca.
