Based on their answers to a series of questions, the majority (62 per cent) of business owners have a positive outlook for 2013. Again, businesses in Atlantic Canada (70 per cent) and British Columbia (69 per cent) lead the charge as the most optimistic. More than half (52 per cent) expect 2013 to be a better year for business and 45 per cent anticipate their business will grow. Further, a sizeable number expect the economy will improve rather than worsen (34 per cent versus 16 per cent). However, the positive sentiment has waned since the fall when optimists outnumbered pessimists by a 5-to-1 ratio (39 per cent versus 8 per cent). The report, conducted by Pollara, also revealed that plans to invest are trending upward. Small business owners indicated they plan to invest more (28 per cent) into their business this year, up since the fall.

“The Canadian economy has weathered many storms through the recent economic downturn, and businesses across the country continue to perform well. However, it’s important that businesses remain adaptable to change and look for ways to grow beyond our borders,” says Steve Murphy, senior vice-president, commercial banking, BMO Bank of Montreal.“The U.S. economy is showing strong signs for growth this year, providing positive implications for Canadian businesses looking south for opportunities.” Murphy encouraged businesses to get their share of the $10 billion in credit BMO has made available, giving them access to the capital they need to grow. Small business owners can take advantage of BMO’s Online Banking for Business platform, which can assist them in making important foreign exchange transactions effectively.“BMO’s Online Banking for Business allows businesses to manage all aspects of their treasury needs from global cash management to foreign exchange services, to investments, loans, and trade finance all from a user-friendly customizable home page,” adds Murphy.

a considerable shifting of the goalposts; only three months earlier, the Bank projected that this would happen sometime in the second half of 2014.

kept its key policy

Much of the rest of the Bank’s April policy rate announcement reiterated its views communicated in its previous statement in March. Notably, the Bank is more comfortable about trends for household debt and the housing sector, describing developments in the latter as “constructive”.

April 17th 2013. It has been

The bottom remains that interest rates this year are going nowhere fast. What’s new is that they’re not likely to be going to be going anywhere fast throughout all of 2014 either, particularly given that inflation expectations remain extremely well anchored.

unchanged at this level for more than two and a half years.

The Bank does not want to be seen as changing its tune too dramatically, or fuelling expectations that it might even be forced to cut rates. For that reason, the Bank indicated that its next move will likely be to raise interest rates, albeit not for some time. That said, that’s now so far into the future that the Bank is really saying is “we’re not going to raise interest rates.”

In its April policy rate announcement, the Bank lowered its forecast for Canadian economic growth to 1.5 per cent this year. Its previous forecast published in January predicted growth of 2 per cent in 2013. The Bank’s new forecast is in line with the recently downgraded outlook issued by the International Monetary Fund and is slightly more pessimistic than the consensus forecast by private sector economic forecasts.

As of April 17th, 2013, the advertised five-year lending rate stood at 5.14 per cent, down 0.1 percentage points from the previous Bank rate announcement on March 6th. The five-year rate had previously remained at 5.24 per cent since the beginning of June 2012.

The Bank still expects growth to pick up later this year, but pushed the improvement further out into the second half of 2013. For 2014, the Bank is forecasting growth of 2.8 per cent, up slightly from the previous forecast of 2.7 per cent, with similar growth of 2.7 per cent in 2015. The Bank also lowered its forecast for inflation, and extended how long it expects it to remain below the inflation target of 2 per cent (i.e. mid-2015). This represents

HST ISSUES

By Dino Nicosia, Broker Of Record, Investpro Realty and Appraisal Ltd.

Hamilton

The HST rules dealing with real estate are complex. A critical aspect of any agreement of purchase and sale is whether HST is “included in” or “in addition to” the purchase price. Some real estate sales are completely exempt from HST. A used residential house, multi-residential complexes or land sold by an individual are examples of sales that are usually HST exempt. There are exceptions however.

If the property is mixed use, by that part of the property is subject to HST (being the commercial component) and part of the property is not subject to HST (being the residential component), the purchase price should be allocated between the HST exempt and HST eligible components. It is best if this allocation is agreed upon in the offer so that the purchaser and vendor are submitting the same figures to the applicable taxing authorities.

If the transaction is fully, or partly in the case of a mixed use property, subject to HST, there is a provision that allows purchasers who are registered for HST to purchase real estate without paying HST to the vendor. This is not an exemption from HST, but rather a provision which allows a person registered for HST to self-assess the HST rather than having the vendor collect and remit the HST. If a vendor sells real estate to a person who is registered for HST, the vendor wrongly assumes the sale is HST exempt, and the agreement provides that the purchase price is HST inclusive, the vendor has effectively sold the property for approximately 13% less. For example, if a HST registered purchaser purchases a property for $100,000 HST inclusive, and the property is not exempt from HST, the purchaser will be able to insist that the amount of HST included in the price of $100,000 need not be paid to the vendor on closing. This results in a discount to the purchaser which would not have been intended by the vendor. A vendor can avoid this issue by simply providing in the agreement that the HST is in addition to the purchase price.

Selling a real estate investment property Q.

I purchased a rental investment property nine years ago. Every year I have filed the rental income on my tax return. This year I sold the property. In addition to my rental income, what tax implications will I have to report? Jared, Toronto

A.

Hopefully, you made a profit! The real estate market has been healthy for the past several years and continues to be strong. Selling a real estate investment property will generate either a capital gain/ loss and/or a recapture of income/terminal loss.

You will have a capital gain when the proceeds of the sale exceed the original cost of the property. A capital gain must be included in your personal tax return (if you own it personally) and is taxed on 50 per cent of the gains at your personal tax rate. A capital loss occurs when the cost is greater than your proceeds. The capital losses should be included on your personal return and applied against capital gains in that year. Any excess losses can be carried back three years, or carried forward indefinitely to reduce capital gains. In calculating the capital gain/loss, determining the adjusted cost of the property is an essential factor. The adjusted

cost must include not just the purchase price but also other costs incurred that had to be capitalized. As well, the proceeds of disposition are all the cost, including the selling price and adjustments pertaining to the sale of the investment. In addition to the capital gains/losses, you may have a recapture of income. This occurs when you are taking Capital Cost allowance (depreciation) on the building, in any of the years that it was owned by you. The balance in this account is called the “undepreciated portion.� A recapture of income occurs when the lesser of the proceeds and the cost of the property is higher than the Undepreciated Capital Cost (UCC). The recapture of income is taxed in its entirety at your personal tax rate. Alternatively, a terminal loss occurs when the lesser of the proceeds and the cost of the property is less than the UCC. This terminal loss can be applied in the current year to reduce other income (such as salaries or business income). Any unused amounts can be carried back three years or carried forward. Good record keeping is essential to calculate the correct gains and/or losses. The opinions and views expressed herein are those of the author and not those of Commercial Investor. Commercial Investor does not necessarily endorse or encourage any specific tax strategies. Please consult a tax professional for advice specific to your particular situation.

Advice on financing a small business

W

hether you need start-up capital or cash to purchase equipment or manage your

cash flow, access to sufficient credit is integral to running a successful small business. Banks offer a variety of financial solutions for your business, including business lines of credit, mortgages, loans, overdraft protection and creditor insurances, and credit cards.

Alec Morley, Senior Vice President, Small Business Banking, TD Canada Trust offers advice on securing financing for your small business: 1. Decide what credit product is right for you. There are a number of options when it comes to securing financing for your business. For example, a business line of credit is a fixed amount of money that a company can borrow but the borrower only pays interest on the amount actually used. This sort of credit will help you deal with the ever– changing demands of your business. While a business

loan, which is a loan granted for the use of a business, is an excellent way to finance purchases or expand your business. 2. State why you need the loan. Ensure your business plan clearly articulates the amount of money you need and accurately explains exactly what you intend to do with it. 3. Demonstrate your ability to repay the loan. Come armed with personal and business reports and cash flow projections to demonstrate how you’ll repay the loan. 4. Show your passion. You must be willing to invest some of your money into the business. Address what you would do if you didn’t get the loan to demonstrate persistence and commitment to your business. Further advice on financing a small business is available online at www.tdcanadatrust.com/smallbusiness/resources.jsp.

10 ways a CGA can help your small business 1. Sound Advice

6. Estate planning

A certified general accountant (CGA) sees more than numbers. They see the big picture and can provide the sound advice your business needs. You are the expert in your business; and a CGA is the expert in accounting, finance, taxation and business management. He or she will be your adviser, counsel and confidante. Together, the two of you will anticipate, prevent and solve problems.

Whether you own a business or simply want to ensure the safe passage of your lifetime assets, estate planning is important. A CGA works with you and your lawyer to ensure that designated beneficiaries receive the maximum benefit from your estate.

2. Succession planning The difference between self-employment and business ownership lies in knowing that your business can succeed without you. Succession planning ensures that your business is self-sufficient. It allows you to take time away while you stay involved or to sell your business (or bequeath it) when the time is right. A CGA will help you develop and execute a sound succession plan. 3. Business startup When you decide that it’s time to make your dream a reality, a CGA will help set up the most appropriate entity for your business, whether a sole proprietorship, partnership or corporation, with the skills and experience needed to guide you through this important stage of the startup process. 4. Software installation and training A CGA will take the time to understand the information technology needs of your business, assisting in the evaluation of functionality, cost and portability, and create the right software environment for your business through installation, configuration and training. 5. Systems implementation Proper systems can make the difference between chaos and order. A CGA will help you to identify and evaluate systems such as record keeping, document retention, asset protection and information controls.

7. Financial planning Whether it’s investment advice to help you realize your retirement dreams or cash flow projections for your growing business, a CGA will provide the sound financial planning you require to get you to your goal. 8. Controllership services If you think your business is too small to have a chief financial officer, think again. Many CGA firms offer part-time controllership services. They will provide hands-on advice about financial controls and procedures, assist in month-end processes and help ensure your business is in compliance with regulatory agencies. 9. Accounting services CGAs offer a wide range of accounting services, from compiling your financial results on an interim or year-end basis, to payroll administration, tax compliance, cash management, projections and bill payment, plus analysis, assessments, calculations and reviews. 10. Tax planning and preparation Tax planning and preparation is an integral part of the financial planning process. A CGA will help you minimize the taxes you pay – now and in the future – whether you’re an employee or self-employed, an investor or small business owner, a farmer, student or landlord. NC More information or access to other small business resources is available online at cga-ontario.org or toll-free at 1-800-668-1454.

o matter whether you are thinking of selling your business, planning your

retirement or planning for the future, you need a sound business succession plan.

Succession planning involves establishing your exit strategy and deciding how to hand your business over to someone else. Having a plan can smooth the transition, protect your work’s legacy, build value for your business, and help ensure financial security for your family and other interested individuals. When planning your exit strategy, it’s best to start early. According to the 2011 TD Waterhouse Business Succession Poll, 76 per cent of small business owners don’t have such plan. Taking the time to plan can save you countless hours down the road, so to get you started, here are few things to consider when drafting your plan: • Determine your goals and objectives for the business. • Identify and train your successor.

• Think about how your decisions will impact family members, partners and/or employees. • Prepare a financial plan and determine the tax implications for the transition of your business. • Determine the fair market value of your business. • Create an exit strategy by establishing a timeline for easing your way out of the business. • Review the plan regularly to keep it up to date. When developing your plan, it’s a good idea to consult advisors such as accountants, bankers and lawyers. Making sure that your successors understand their roles in the business, now and for the future, is also essential. There are several ways to find information that can help you plan for a smooth transition. Start by reading the succession plan guide online at www.canadabusiness.ca/ontario. Canada Business Ontario is a free service from the governments of Canada and Ontario that provides information on a variety of business topics. You can also contact them by phone through the Business Info Line at 1-888-745-8888.

• Decide if you would like to transfer or sell your business to a successor.

Are your e-promotions ready for the new anti-spam law?

A

ny

business

or

organization using e-mail, text messaging or social

networks to promote or sell

products or services is advised to learn about Canada’s new anti-spam law. Once it is in force, compliance with the law will be mandatory, and following the new rules will help businesses and organizations build and maintain the trust of clients and customers. Consider these first steps for getting ready: Determine if your electronic messages are commercial in nature. The law applies to commercial electronic messages (CEMs) only. A CEM is defined as encouraging participation in a business transaction or activity, regardless of whether there is an expectation of profit.

For all electronic messages you have determined to be commercial: • Get the consent of your recipients, and keep records. The legislation requires obtaining “express” or “implied” consent. Express consent means that a person has clearly agreed to receive a CEM before it is sent – you cannot request consent in a CEM. Consent may also be implied in certain situations, for instance if there is an existing business or non-business relationship. In all cases, ensure you understand the consent you have received from your recipients, and keep detailed records in case you are ever asked to prove that consent has been received. • Identify yourself and anyone you represent in the message. Provide contact information including your business name, postal address and either a telephone number or e-mail address. This information must be accurate and valid for a minimum of 60 days after the message has been sent. • Include a working mechanism that allows the recipient to unsubscribe from receiving additional messages. This must be at no cost to the recipient. • Ensure that no part of the CEM is false or misleading, including the sender’s identity, subject line, any Web links, or any other material part of the message’s text or data. Learn about the law at www.fightspam.gc.ca The federal government has posted information about the law along with news, updates and valuable tips. You can even sign up for e-mail updates on topics such as the progress of the legislation and new information resources. Every business owner, manager and employee is encouraged to examine the legislation to see how it will affect their marketing campaigns. NC

The “Street Smart Real Estate Appraiser” I have always viewed the valuation of real estate as an “Art and a Science”, which properties are more art and less science is often hard to determine. Typically, properties that have ample comparable data don’t require a creative view to determine a value, whereas unique properties with almost no sales data or similar comparison often involve a large degree of subjectivity and creativity. How does a typical appraiser obtain a – let’s say “Creative Valuation Zealous” needed for unique property appraisals? I think a real estate developer can train an appraiser, helping him understand the creative side to the valuation of real estate development parcels. By definition Real Estate Development is a multifaceted business, encompassing activities that range from the renovation and re-lease of existing buildings to the purchase of raw land and the sale of improved parcels to others. As a real estate appraiser what does this mean to me? A developer that buys raw land at price X dollars and then adds value inputs at Y dollars, should have the equation (X + Y = $$) added together or approximately together. There it is….. an expert real estate developer creates the value and should know his valuation. I should talk to real estate developers and get their “trade secrets”. The mission - become a “STREET SMART APPRAISER”!! A real estate developer valuation trick I give you is “CAMP-OUT”! Rainer Hummel taught me this appraisal “trade secret”. Rainer is the Owner of Hummel Properties Inc., which operates and develops residential and commercial properties in Ontario. I have had the pleasure of working with Rainer several times over the last few years. On our most recent assignment I pulled him aside and ask for his valuation views. Of the many great ideas he put forth, one of the simplest ideas that morning was; how he would sit outside of a property he was considering as an investment for hours on end….just patiently waiting for the property to “talk to him”…almost as an engineer looks at a plan for a solution to a problem. Fundamentally, this “camp-out” strategy is an excellent valuation tool. I often find patience is the key to commercial valuation of a development property. Most appraisers rush though the inspection process of an appraisal…hurrying to the next property; when a “Street Smart Appraiser” should spend extra time at a property and possibly go back again and again to ensure that the property “talks to him” about its value.

Look for my next article to reveal valuation tricks of Timothy Salisbury of Royal LePage, a real estate broker with over 23 years of sales experience and consistently one of the top performers in the country. Niagara Peninsula

Protecting small businesses from fake advertising solicitations

E

ach year, hundreds of thousands of Canada’s small businesses use

Yellow Pages Group (YPG) products to advertise their goods and services in online, mobile and print media. Of those businesses,

some may also receive fraudulent solicitations or invoices from companies masquerading as YPG or its various brands. The most common type of fraudulent activity in this area relates to print directory advertising. “The Yellow Pages brand has a longstanding reputation for trusted local information and effective solutions to help small businesses grow their client base. Unscrupulous companies know this and have created elaborate materials in the guise of the Yellow Pages brand to attempt to dupe small businesses into signing advertising agreements or paying fake invoices associated with fringe or non-existent directories,” said François Ramsay, Senior Vice-President, Corporate Affairs and General Counsel for Yellow Pages Group. Ramsay cautions small business owners to be wary of solicitations that differ from their normal interaction with their Yellow Pages Group sales representative and of solicitations under the banner of Canpages, a discontinued print directory of YPG.

• Never pay any invoice immediately. Check your files for contracts to ensure you ordered the advertising. • Never pay an invoice for advertising you did not order or sign for. • Contact your YPG sales consultant to ensure your advertising program and invoice are correct. • If you are unsure of the legitimacy of an invoice or solicitation, contact YPG Client Services at 1 877 909-9356 • When a scam is detected, ensure all your accounts payable staff are made aware. For more information on fighting fraud in small businesses and examples of fraudulent directory solicitations at: yellowpages360solution.ca/fraud Small businesses are encouraged to report suspicious businesses or fraudulent solicitations to the Competition Bureau of Canada at 1 800 348-5358 and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1 888 495-8501. If you suspect your business may have fallen victim to an external scam, contact your local Better Business Bureau chapter for information on your legal rights.

Small businesses should keep the following in mind when examining any suspicious solicitation or invoice: • Beware of variations on the Yellow Pages Group name or logo. • Always check the address of the company for a Canadian location as YPG is a Canadian company. • Be wary of fax communications. YPG never conducts business through unsolicited faxes. • Never sign a document you have not properly read. • When in person, ask to see the representative’s business card and a copy of the current year’s directory.

Mortgages

New Lending Rules and Practices Are you a real estate investor that has run out of options for purchasing rental properties? Are you self-employed and successful in your career, yet cannot get a mortgage? You are not alone! Having been in the mortgage business now for over 15 years, I have seen many new rules and regulations introduced by various governments. Some changes have worked well and others...not so well. The recent federal changes to borrowing/lending criteria involving cutting back loan-to-value (LTV) ratios from 85% to 80% and amortization periods from 30 to 25 years on insured mortgages has certainly impacted the industry. Of far greater impact and consequence are guidelines issued from the Office of Superintendent of Financial Institutions Canada (OSFI). OSFI has issued practices and procedure guidelines impacting all federallyregulated financial institutions on residential mortgages of 1 to 4 units and include home equity lines of credit. The impact is only starting to make itself felt as various financial institutions have re-worked and are re- working their lending practices and criteria. The results are becoming dramatic and are beginning to significantly impact the industry. One result of these changes is that many mortgage brokers have become challenged with finding appropriate financing for smaller investment properties. Lenders and other institutions have now virtually ended small rental property financing. Further, self- employed stated income or low documentation loans and lines of credit have been reduced to 65% (reference “income verification” and “non-conforming loan principles”). Institutional mortgage lending to self-employed investors has been dramatically affected. Small real investors who have rental properties which were financed some years ago, may be looking at injecting additional cash into their properties for things like improvements and life-cycle repairs. With Banks no longer offering the financing that was available 5 years ago, much stress is now being created. We recently had a client (who is self-employed) who purchased 2 properties some 5 years ago. He wanted to put additional cash into the properties to improve them. However, he was not in a position to contribute his own additional cash equity into the property. Even though the property values have increased, and the investment has run very smoothly with principal loan amounts repaid as part of the amortized mortgage, the investor could not get more than 65% financing based on his specific circumstance. 5 years ago he received 95% LTV financing! What is the solution to these new restrictions and limitations? The answer is private lending. There are no “rules” imposed on private lending. Pro Funds Mortgages has been focusing on private lending in the recent years. Interest costs are higher, but lending documentation and criteria is not regulated. Different private lenders set their own rules and lending criteria. Often, the strength of the real estate security is of greatest importance. If you are self-employed, or if you are buying a student rental, or if you are buying an investment or a home that needs renovations or may not be complete, or if you are buying in a region that may not be on the Banks list to lend on, or if this is an investment or rental property (large or small), Private lending may be the best approach. We can get the mortgage done. We have lenders that will lend up to 85% loan-to-value in most cases (and up to 90% on exceptions). Why let the banks deter your investment direction and activities. There is (almost) always a way. With the historically low interest rates of today, perhaps a business case can be made to invest with private funds at slightly higher interest rate. It is certainly worth exploring. If you are looking for a mortgage and cannot seem to get approved by our Banks than give this option a shot. On the other side, if you are an investor and have RRSPS and cash, this is your time to get involved in investing in mortgages as a lender. New doors are now opening for both borrowers and lenders.

Small business confidence inches downward in April

T

he confidence of small business owners continued to decline

in April, following a bigger hit in March, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). The Business Barometer index fell half a point from March’s results to 62.4.

“After a promising January and February, more business owners appear to be disappointed with their firms’ performance so far this spring,” said Ted Mallett, CFIB’s chief economist and vice-president.“These latest results are back in line with what we saw in the last months of 2012 when the economy was exhibiting only lacklustre growth.” Small business owners in Newfoundland and Labrador (69.1) are the most optimistic in the country, although confidence is rising in British Columbia (67.6), which overtook Saskatchewan (67.2) and Alberta (65.3). Quebec (64.1) and Ontario (63.2) are just above the national average, while Manitoba (61.7) and New Brunswick (58.1) are below. Nova Scotia (53.8) saw Canada’s biggest decline in business confidence, meaning Prince Edward Island (55.1) is no longer the lowest in the country. “The pattern across the country has been quite uneven,” added Mallett.“If we look at the results by industry, the biggest declines in optimism occurred in manufacturing and retail, while the confidence of construction, wholesale and business services firm owners has remained steady.” Reports on new orders and accounts receivables are down in recent months, although so are shortages of skilled labour, now reported by 29 per cent of respondents, which is down from the mid-30s range in late 2012. Measured on a scale of 0 and 100, an index level above 50 means owners expecting their businesses’ performance to be stronger in the next year outnumber those expecting weaker performance. According to past results, index levels normally range between 65 and 70 when the economy is growing at its potential. The April 2013 findings are based on 1184 responses, collected from a stratified random sample of CFIB members, to a controlled-access web survey. Findings are statistically accurate to +/- 2.8 per cent 19 times in 20. CFIB is Canada’s largest association of small and medium-sized businesses with 109,000 members across every sector and region.

legallyspeaking

More than what you bargained for Inheriting tenants with a commercial property

U

sually a home or property inspector can give you a good idea of the condition of the real estate you are buying. Unfortunately, the one thing an inspector cannot tell you is whether tenants will come with the property, and if they are any good. Purchasing a commercial property with existing tenants can be a great way to hedge investment losses in the property. In addition, having them there will save you the time and expense of advertising to fill vacancies and can help you secure financing for the purchase of the property. However, beware. Having tenants brings with it exposure to several types of liability, in many cases dictated by the commercial lease in place and real estate law. As a landlord it is important to understand there may be certain obligations for which you are responsible and understanding these obligations is critical to ensure you get what you bargained for. Prior to purchasing a commercial property where you will be inheriting tenants: Meet the tenants. It is important to discuss with them any complaints that they have with the property. This will help you gauge whether you will have a good working relationship with your future tenants, and will also provide valuable insight into potential issues with the property. If you have many tenants, or you do not want to deal with your tenants directly, discuss the options for engaging a property management company with your lawyer.

16G COM

Know your rights. When you purchase a commercial property any leases relating to the property will usually be assigned to you at the time of closing. If you consent to this assignment you will be bound to the terms of those leases. For example, these obligations could require that you remove snow from driveways, install or maintain security systems, pay for utilities, etc. Generally speaking, existing leases end then the Ontario Commercial Tenancies Act will govern your relationship with the tenant going forward. Know your tenant’s rights. The lease will describe your tenant’s rights and the remedies he or she has against you if a dispute arises. These remedies may include abatement of rent payments, court or arbitration, or even cancellation of the lease. Be sure to have a lawyer review the lease and explain how you may be exposed to liability. Review the leases prior to purchase. The leases will list your responsibilities to the tenant and vice-versa. These rights are impacted by the law relating to commercial tenancies as well. Be sure to make review the leases by your lawyer and that they meet his satisfaction, a condition of any agreement of purchase and sale. If you don’t like what you hear, it is not necessarily the end of the deal; you may be able to renegotiate the terms of the lease or the agreement of purchase and sale. Commercial leases are very complex and intimidating documents; however, understanding your obligations and your tenants’ rights will allow you to feel comfortable knowing that your exposure is limited. These documents function to maintain stability, predictability, and in short, the “status quo.” Landlord-Tenant disputes often arise when a lease obligation is not being fulfilled or is unable to be filled, resulting in issues with the property. Ideally, the landlord and tenant should keep a good relationship in order to be able to resolve these disputes amicably without resort to the court system or other formal dispute resolution mechanisms. Commercial leases require a lawyer familiar with the concepts and the law. Find a lawyer that has experience in the area because you will need a lawyer just as much after your closing as you did before. Perhaps the most difficult part of writing these articles relates not to the actual writing, but thinking of a topic to address.

Canadian commercial property market heading into another strong year: CIBC REIT returns to remain attractive, fuelled by low rates and solid fundamentals

C

anada’s commercial real estate sector and REIT investment market appear set to outperform for a fifth-straight year, according to CIBC World Markets Inc.

“All of the fundamentals seem to be supporting [the] continuation of [an] extended recovery” from the market lows of 2008, says Allan Kimberley, vice-chairman, Real Estate Investment Banking at CIBC. In a series of notes released in April at the bank’s 18th annual real estate conference in Toronto, CIBC says low interest rates, the continued availability of equity and debt, and healthy supply-demand fundamentals have set up Canada’s real estate capital markets for another strong year. These conditions are relatively unchanged from 2012 which saw “record levels of new issuance, total returns exceeding those of the broader S&P/TSX Composite index, a growing list of IPO and M&A activity, against a backdrop of declining volatility,” says Mr. Kimberley. Alex Avery, a CIBC Equity Analyst who covers the commercial real estate sector, also sees favourable property and REIT market conditions continuing in 2013, with one caveat. “While current real estate and REIT investment market conditions remain highly attractive in many respects, property and REIT pricing have risen largely to reflect the favourable current environment. We expect attractive returns from Canadian REITs in 2013, but more modest than seen in recent years.” Mr. Avery says returns from REITs in 2013 will be driven by attractive distribution yields and modest further appreciation in unit prices. Over the next 12 to 18 months he’s forecasting returns to “average five to 10 per cent, comprising close to 6 per cent in average yield and zero to five per cent in capital appreciation.” REITs most likely to outperform will be ones that deliver the highest funds from operations (FFO) growth, he says. 20G COM

“With more than a dozen new REIT formations during 2012, and the potential for as many in 2013, the Canadian REIT universe is expanding rapidly to offer investors numerous new alternatives,” he adds. “We believe these new entrants offer the greatest opportunity for investors to outperform the broader REIT group, with smaller, growth-oriented REITs offering significantly higher FFO growth potential than the larger capitalization, more established REITs. However, these new entrants also tend to lack liquidity and a public track record of financial results and/or of management ability to execute strategy.” Two factors that can spoil attractive property fundamentals - the cost and availability of debt and supply of new developments - remain muted and will likely remain so this year, according to Mr. Avery. “Wide spreads and forecasts for higher, but still low benchmark interest rates suggest favourable borrowing conditions could continue. Committed and proposed development activity currently remains measured in the context of the overall inventory of investment property in Canada, notwithstanding development proposals having picked up sharply in recent months.” In a separate note, Avery Shenfeld, Chief Economist at CIBC, says the real estate market will be supported by “national vacancy rates for both office and industrial space [which] are likely to remain well-contained” while “retail properties will continue to benefit from new entrants from the U.S.” Meanwhile, the combination of historically low interest rates, accessible credit markets, a high-yield market that continues to expand and healthy corporate fundamentals should support M&A activity.“ We expect M&A activity could continue in 2013, with privatizations among the higher-quality and larger capitalization REITs, and mergers between smaller capitalization REITs,” says Mr. Avery. In 2012, real estate was the third most active sector in Canadian M&A, behind oil and gas, and diversifieds. The notes by Mr. Avery, Mr. Kimberley, Mr. Shenfeld are available at: http://files.newswire.ca/256/2012REYIR.pdf CIBC’s wholesale banking business provides a range of integrated credit and capital markets products, and investment banking to clients in key financial markets in North America and around the world.

GTA commercial Realtors report commercial market figures

T

oronto Real Estate Board Commercial Division Members reported 4,547,945 square feet of space leased through the TorontoMLS system in the first quarter of 2013. This represented a decrease of 4.5 per cent in comparison to Q1 2012. Leased industrial space – the key market segment for TorontoMLS leasing – amounted to 3,563,287 square feet, or 78 per cent of total leased space in Q1. First Quarter 2013: All Commercial Lease Transactions Total Leased Space for All Lease Transaction Types on TorontoMLS

Average lease rates for transactions where pricing was disclosed were up on a year-over-year basis for all major property types. The average industrial lease rate was $5.15 per square foot net – up by 4.4 per cent compared to Q1 2012. Average lease rates for commercial/retail and office properties were up to $15.67 and $13.11 per square foot net respectively.

There was a total of 274 industrial, commercial/retail and office sales through the TorontoMLS system in Q1 2013. This sales total was down from 334 sales in Q1 2012. The average selling price per square foot for industrial transactions where pricing was disclosed was slightly lower, at $61.10 compared to $66.80 last year. The average selling prices for commercial/retail and office transactions were up on a year-over-year basis. “Average selling prices do experience some volatility on a quarter-by-quarter basis, often due to a change in the types of properties being sold in different market segments. That being said, investment metrics for industrial properties in particular including surveyed cap rates and average prices from non-TorontoMLS sources suggest that pricing should remain buoyant this year. This is especially the case given that growth in the Canadian economy is expected to accelerate in 2013,” continued Lai. First Quarter 2013: Commercial Sales completed with Pricing Disclosed on TorontoMLS

Total Number of Sales on TorontoMLS

“Following a year-over-year dip in the fourth quarter of 2012, growth resumed for the average industrial lease rate, which was up by more than the rate of inflation in the first quarter of this year. While the outlook for the Canadian economy has been uncertain over the past year, the increase in the average industrial lease rate could be indicative of heightened demand for industrial space as some businesses anticipate an improvement in goods production and exports in 2013 and beyond,” said TREB Commercial Division Chair Cynthia Lai.
