Canadian Real Estate Markets to watch in 2020


Vancouver


"The market rise was too strong, and now it is reacting to that. However, by the time it is done, it will be in line with where a steady increase should have gotten us over the years.”



 Economic growth is moderating in Vancouver. The Conference Board of Canada (CBoC) expects growth to dip to 2.3% in 2019 and continue to average at that rate from 2020-23, down from the 3% rise experienced in 2018. Looking at the Vancouver housing market, total starts will drift downwards over the next few years as a result of ample supply and policy measures aimed at taking more steam out of the sector.

 

Housing prices, particularly for single-family homes, have been decreasing, and sales in the Vancouver area were down significantly at the start of the summer of 2019. The proportion of foreign buyers in the Vancouver housing market has dropped significantly since the BC government introduced a tax on international purchases in 2016.

 

Despite some headwinds, Vancouver re-emerged at the top of our survey this year for overall real estate prospects. The office and industrial sectors are doing particularly well. For office properties in metropolitan Vancouver, the vacancy rate was just 5.3% in the second quarter of 2019, according to JLL Research.

 

Looking at the housing market, the long-term trends remain favourable. Recent softness is largely a reflection of a correction from an overheated environment and policies that have caused investors, whether foreign or domestic buyers, to exit the market.

 

With a strong economy and population growth, Vancouver remains a desirable place to live that will eventually draw buyers back into the market. The question isn’t if, but when, they’ll come back.  


Toronto


“There’s a certain stubbornness that has persisted in the GTA real estate market.”


 

Fuelled in part by immigration that’s helping to make it one of the fastest-growing cities in both Canada and the United States, Toronto continues to have a healthy real estate market. Economic growth is also solid: the CBoC is predicting growth of 2.4% in both 2019 and 2020. While the housing market had declined as a result of policy interventions like the mortgage stress test, sales and prices have been stabilizing. 

 

But affordability remains a significant concern, largely due to a decade of land supply issues, coupled with increased demand for housing as a result of immigration and new household formations. With the cost of land per front foot rising, the impacts of government levies and taxes have only added to the affordability challenge.

 

Toronto’s office market is a major strength, as seen in the continued low vacancy rate and announcements of large-scale developments across the region. Notable among them is a recently announced CA$3.5-billion mixed-use development near the CN Tower that includes two office towers (of 58 and 48 stories), about 800 rental apartments across two buildings and a retail component.

 

A constant top investment and development pick, the industrial sector continues to shine on the back of e-commerce growth. Vacancies are at historic lows in the industrial sector, with average net-asking rents on the rise. Construction activity is strong, with significant new supply expected to come onstream by early 2020.


Ottawa


“Demand is so far outstripping supply, with nothing suggesting this will go away any time soon.”


 

With solid economic growth and a vibrant housing market, Ottawa took third place for real estate prospects in our survey. Migration from other cities, including from Toronto-area residents looking for more affordable housing options, has helped the city’s population surpass the one-million mark. With the city having reached that milestone, interviewees expect larger investment players to come into the market.

 

With so much activity, labour shortages remain a significant issue, as the city grapples with the impact of several large construction projects happening at the same time. And with land supply tight and affordability decreasing, some developers are building townhouses rather than traditional detached homes. 

 

Purpose-built rental housing is also going strong, particularly as rising prices to buy a home push people to look at other options. Notable projects in Ottawa include a new 24-storey co-living development featuring communal apartments alongside traditional rental units. One interviewee believes renting is a long-term trend in Ottawa, with several retail properties being redeveloped to include rental housing.

 

The industrial sector is doing well, and many interviewees noted storage as a strength in a government city that regularly attracts newcomers. According to JLL Research, the office vacancy rate declined to 7.7% in the second quarter of 2019, down from 8.7% in 2018.


Halifax


“Slow and steady wins the race in Halifax.”


 

The Halifax economy is on a steady upward climb, with growth forecasts of 2% in 2019 and 2.6% the year after, according to the CBoC. This comes on the heels of record job creation numbers in 2018.

 

Strong immigration levels are fuelling population gains and demand for homes, particularly when it comes to purpose-built rental and single-family housing. Asked if oversupply is a concern, interviewees said they’re not seeing signs of that happening yet.

 

Interviewees say financing is widely available, as institutional and private investors that have capital to invest still view the local real estate market—especially when it comes to purpose-built rental housing and industrial properties—as profitable. On the office side, absorption of new supply has left some older buildings falling out of favour.

 

Real estate players are actively watching what will happen with proposed new development rules under the city’s Centre Plan. The plan, which updates land-use bylaws and municipal planning strategies, would let developers build bigger towers in the core.

 

Elsewhere in Atlantic Canada, St. John’s is seeing improving prospects as oil companies make long-term commitments through new exploration and move into new office buildings outside of the downtown core.



Montreal


“Montreal feels like it’s on fire.”


 

Montreal is on track for continued economic growth, albeit at slightly lower rates than the 3.4% seen in 2018. The CBoC forecasts growth of 2% in 2019, tapering off slightly to an average of 1.6% from 2020-23.

Major strengths in Montreal’s real estate market include multifamily housing and industrial property. An aging population is among the factors fuelling significant demand for condos, while e-commerce, including the growth of cold storage for grocery deliveries, is giving a boost to industrial real estate. Supply of industrial real estate is tight, with the availability rate falling to just 3.2% in the second quarter of 2019, according to CBRE.

The office market, helped by strong absorptions due in part to a growing technology sector looking for flexible space, has also been healthy. The vibrant market is leading to significant investment and deal activities, including transactions involving large US institutional investors and private equity players that see promise in the region’s stability.

Senior housing is another significant trend, as are residential developments offering curated amenities and services aimed at millennials and active adults who have recently retired.

Despite the optimism, there are concerns about rising construction and labour costs and the potential impacts of the city’s proposed 20-20-20 bylaw. Under the proposal, the city would require developers to set aside certain percentages of new residential developments—or make a financial contribution in lieu—for social, affordable and family-oriented housing.


Saskatoon

" The Housing market is picking up nicely and product is moving! "

 

Saskatoon’s economy continues to expand, with modest growth on the near horizon. According to the CBoC, Saskatoon will see economic growth of 2.3% in 2019 and 1.7% in 2020. 

 

Population growth will outstrip the national average over this period. Housing sales in 2019 have been showing a modest uptick over 2018, with condos contributing to the year-over-year increase. The CBoC predicts housing starts will increase over the coming years, rising to 2,171 units in 2020 from 1,646 in 2019.

 

A three-building, CA$300-million residential and commercial development reached an important milestone in May 2019 with a ceremony to mark the completion of the top floor of one of two office towers.

 

The site’s hotel has already opened, and the smaller of the two office towers should be complete in November. Work on the larger tower, which the CBoC notes is expected to be the tallest building in Saskatchewan, should be complete by 2021.


Quebec city


 

Forecasts by the CBoC suggest Quebec City’s economy will increase by 1.8% in 2019, with annual growth averaging 1.6% from 2020-23. It predicts housing starts will soften in 2019 and remain below 2017 and 2018 levels for the next four years, particularly when it comes to building single-family detached homes.

 

Despite the softness in some parts of the housing market, there’s strength in other areas, as seen in large-scale developments like a CA$550-million commercial and residential development in Lévis. Other major projects include the construction of a new hospital complex.

 

Construction costs are a rising concern. One interviewee pointed to the impact of the hospital project on the price of concrete, while others cited labour shortages as a significant factor behind the cost pressures on real estate projects.

 

Environmental features are another trend in the Quebec City real estate market. Several interviewees noted the rising focus on the inclusion of rooftop urban agriculture and community gardens.

 

Access to transportation is also important, which is an area where Quebec City is making significant investment as it moves forward with its ambitious tramway project. The project, which recently secured funding, has the potential to transform the city and open up new development opportunities.

 



Edmonton


“Although the home builder industry in Alberta has been crippled by fewer residential construction jobs . . . and uncertainty surrounding proposed legislation, we’re hopeful this is the worst and we’ll hit the upswing in 2020.”

 

Edmonton’s economy is expected to grow by 1.3% in 2019, according to the CBoC, as oil production cuts moderate growth in the energy sector. While anticipated austerity by the new provincial government may also affect growth in the city in the near term, the CBoC expects the economy to grow by an average of 2.3% from 2020-23. Despite some headwinds, the Edmonton real estate market is seeing strength in some areas.

 

Construction of a number of new office towers is adding vibrancy to the city’s downtown. While JLL Research reported an office vacancy rate of 17.7% in the second quarter of 2019, the downtown area saw positive net absorption, particularly in the city’s financial district. A wave of completions is putting some pressure on the owners of older buildings to renovate or repurpose them as the city experiences a flight to high-quality office properties.

 

Industrial real estate is doing well, especially in communities outside the city where available land and lower tax rates are helping to stimulate development. As a gateway to northern communities, Edmonton is evolving as a warehousing and distribution centre, as seen in developments like an Amazon facility in Nisku’s Border Business Park that’s expected to open in early 2020.


Winnipeg


 

Like many areas of Canada, Winnipeg’s economic growth has moderated somewhat. According to the CBoC, growth is forecast to come in at 1.9% in 2019 and 1.6% in 2020, down from an average of 3.4% during the previous two years.

 

Strong immigration levels have more than outweighed outflows, helping to fuel solid population growth. While the CBoC projects housing starts to soften in the short term, it expects a sustained rebound from 2020-23. Once complete, a new 40-storey, CA$160-million mixed-use development on Main Street will be Winnipeg’s tallest structure.

 

The industrial market is very strong. The industrial availability rate was just 3.7% in the second quarter of 2019, according to CBRE. Prospects remain solid for the manufacturing sector in Winnipeg, where the average industrial net asking lease rate rose by 2.7% on a year-over-year basis, according to CBRE.


Calgary


“The outcome of decisions on the pipelines will determine our city’s future. I suspect they will be built and that will create jobs and keep us busy.”


 

Calgary is likely to see moderate economic growth again in 2019, with the CBoC forecasting a rise of 1.5%. Further out, it projects annual growth to average 2.5% from 2020-23.

 

Many interviewees are particularly optimistic about the impact of a new provincial government and the possibilities of building long-awaited energy pipelines. “We have already seen more people at our showrooms after the election,” said one interviewee.

 

While the housing market faces cost pressures and the CBoC expects starts to fall again in 2019, it’s projecting a sustained rise in construction activity from 2020-23. Interviewees see some opportunities in single-family housing, particularly when it comes to homes aimed at move-up buyers.

 

Industrial properties are definitely a strength as Calgary becomes a growing distribution hub. According to CBRE statistics for the second quarter of 2019, the industrial availability rate was 8.4% in that period, putting that area of the market in a much better position than office properties.

 

With the vacancy rate still quite high at 22.5% in the second quarter of 2019, the downtown office market has seen the withdrawal of some large investors like pension funds, which is creating opportunities for smaller players to acquire buildings and see positive absorption from refreshing them or converting them to other uses.

Marla Janzen is a  TRUSTED SASKATOON REAL ESTATE EXPERT listed on the SASKATOON DIRECTORY and she loves to provide Trusted Saskatoon real estate Tips that help the public! In her latest article she shares some tips on when to sell...hint it is now! 


Why You Should Consider Selling Before The Traditional Selling Season. 


Are You Thinking About Selling Your Home In Saskatoon, Warman and Surrounding Area?


 


A common thought in real estate is never list your home in the winter offseason.  Perpetuated by industry experts, agents and repeat sellers alike, this saying encourages many would-be sellers to wait until the spring peak to list their homes.  However, studies show that homes listed in the winter offseason not only sell faster than those in the spring, but sellers also net more above their asking price at this time.  Don’t wait until spring to sell.  


If you’ve been thinking of selling your home, here are five compelling reasons to list now.

 

1. Take advantage of low inventory in Saskatoon and area housing market. 


Since most sellers are waiting until spring to list, local inventory falls during the offseason. However, there are still motivated buyers who are ready to move now and don’t want to wait that long to purchase a home.  According to the National Association of Realtors, 55 percent of all buyers purchased their home at the time they did because “it was just the right time.”  These eager buyers may flock to your home.  You may not need to try as hard to make your home stand out in the sea of other similar homes.  With less competition, more buyers, some of whom may have otherwise overlooked your home if you listed during the peak, will express an interest to buy.  While you’ll likely have fewer showings in the offseason, buyers who do visit will be more serious about writing an offer.  Your home will likely sell faster than it would have during the peak season.


2. Set a higher listing price. 


Homes sold during the offseason sell at a higher price, on average, than those sold during the spring and summer peak.  There are many reasons for this.  First, motivated buyers are willing to pay closer to the asking price for a home.  Second, homes are more likely to be priced right and reflect the economics of not only the local market, but the neighbourhood as well.  Often, homes listed during the peak may be priced to compete with other homes in the area and neighbourhood.  Sellers may be pressured to sell for less than the list price in order to encourage buyers to choose their home out of the others on the market.


3. You’ll receive more attention. 


While our team always strives to give you the personal attention you deserve, when you list during the offseason, we’re able to work more closely with you to ensure your home is prepared for its debut on the market.  We can also take more time to answer your questions, address your concerns and prepare you and your home for the sale.

Additionally, if you’d like to hire a tradesperson to handle routine maintenance or undertake a minor home renovation before you list, you may be able to take advantage of flexible scheduling and cheaper rates.  Many of these professionals experience a winter offseason as well, and they will be able to focus their time and attention on you and your project.

 

4. Easier to maintain curb appeal. 


Curb appeal is intended to attract the buyers who are just driving by as well as those who saw your home online and wanted to see it in-person.  It sets the stage for what interested buyers can expect when they step foot in the home during a showing or open house.  If you list your home during the peak of the selling season, you may exhaust your time your energy maintaining curb appeal.  You’ll likely spend most of your free time mowing the lawn, weeding, trimming shrubs and hedges, planting flowers in pots and in flowerbeds, pulling spent blooms and watering it all to ensure it looks lush and healthy on a daily basis.  After all, a lush landscape will attract potential buyers and set your home apart from other similar homes in the area.

The offseason eliminates the pressure to maintain a picture-perfect front landscape.  Since most grass, shrubs and plants go dormant at this time of year, you’ll have less to maintain.  If you live in an area that experiences a traditional winter, your landscape will be covered with snow.  Even if you live in a milder climate, you may not have to mow as often, if at all.  It’s still important to ensure your exterior appears well-tended, so make sure your walkway and front porch remains free of snow, ice and debris.

 

5. Tap into the life changes of buyers. 


Many buyers receive employee raises and bonuses at the end of the year.  If they’ve been saving to buy a home, this extra money may allow them to reach their goal for a down payment and put them on the path to becoming a homeowner.  Additionally, companies often hire new employees and relocate current ones during the first quarter of the year, creating a strong demand for housing.  If you live in an area that’s home to a large company or has a strong corporate presence, this may be the perfect time to list.

 

 
Thinking of Listing in the Offseason? 3 Things to Do Before You List

 

Get your home ready to list by following these tips.

 

1. Schedule maintenance. 


Buyers, especially first-time buyers, want a home they can move into right away; they don’t want to repair the roof or the furnace or replace windows with blown thermal seals before they move in.  Do the scheduled maintenance and make repairs before you list your home for sale.

In some cases, it may help to have an inspector do a pre-inspection of your home.  A pre-inspection will make you aware of any major, potentially deal-killing, issues that will have to be addressed before you list.  It also gives you an idea of minor issues that a potential seller may want repaired.  Overall, it helps you to accurately price your home and may protect you from claims a buyer might make later.

 

2. Create light. 


Balance out the lack of natural light outdoors by turning the lights on inside.  Since people naturally tend to buy emotionally, turning on the lights helps create a sense of warmth and coziness.  Light a fire in the fireplace, if you have one, fill your home with the scents of the season, such as vanilla or fresh baked cookies, and put a throw blanket on your sofa.

If you plan to paint the interior of your home before you list, consider an off-white shade to create consistency throughout your home and make the space feel larger and brighter.  If you have photos of your garden or the home’s exterior in the spring or summer, display them so interested buyers can get a glimpse of what the home looks like in other seasons.

 

3. Give your home a thorough cleaning. 


Cleaning puts your home in its best light.  Clean and polish all the horizontal surfaces of your home, including countertops, windowsills and baseboards; have the curtains dry cleaned or otherwise laundered; wash windows, glass doors and their tracks; vacuum carpeting and polish all wood surfaces, including the floor.

Additionally, this is a great time to pack any personal items and family photos as well as sort through your belongings and donate items you no longer use.  This not only eliminates any clutter, but it also gives you less to pack and move when you sell.

 

If you’re thinking of selling your home in Saskatoon, Warman, Martensville and area give Marla Janzen a call!  


 I would love to help you position your home to sell in our market. I take action to sell my client’s homes and find them the perfect new place to live while negotiating the best terms and price possible.

4 Investments Worth Making In Your First Home



Advice for first-time homeowners on areas where spending a little bit more is likely to pay off in the long-run. From
valuable aesthetic updates in key areas such as the kitchen, bathroom and living room to installing smart heating
systems and insulation to prioritize energy efficiency, these tips will leave you inspired to make the most out of your
first home update. 

Replace Flooring


Flooring has the power to change a room entirely, so it should go without saying that this is an essential aspect of
the home where you should consider spending a little extra. Since flooring in areas such as the hallway, kitchen and
bathroom is likely to undergo high footfall traffic, your material choice should always look to combine durability
with that visual wow-factor where possible.

When it comes to updating your flooring, choose neutral colours to create a luxe look that goes the distance.
Generally, neutral colours offer you the freedom to change your furniture or accessories without updating all the
fixtures and fittings in the process, and will even allow you to keep up with trends as they change.

Whether you’re opting for some stylish, large format floor tiles which offer a contemporary touch in the kitchen or
some hardwood flooring which adds warmth to your living room, quality flooring is a great way to add personality
to a new space from the off – meaning showing your floors a little TLC should be high up on your list of investment
priorities.

Update Key Areas Of The Home


As the hub of the home where friends and family alike come together to relax, the living room is the best place to
start when it comes to fixtures and fittings. Lighting can have a huge impact on the overall aesthetic in your living
room – so it’s worth spending a little bit more on lamps or downlighters to add that cozy, homely touch to the
lounge.

Additionally, art is a great way to change the ambience in your living room, so choosing pieces with comfort and
calmness in mind is a great way to add a tranquil theme that makes you feel right at home from the get-go.

Naturally, ensuring your bathroom looks fresh, well maintained and hygienic is important when moving into any
new home. Modern or high tech touches are an effective way to add an extra luxe appeal, so consider investing in a
rain shower or waterfall taps to create a relaxing oasis that washes away the stresses of moving and unpacking.

Elsewhere in the home, high-end fittings such as granite or quartz worktops are practical choices that will go the distance. Though these may be a high investment initially, investing in durable, hard-wearing and practical
materials in areas of frequent use ensure longevity and, as such, a great return on your investment in the long run.

Invest In Quality Furniture

Nothing makes a house feel like home quite like furniture – after all, furniture is the most effective way of adding
character to any space. When opting for your style, try to prioritize items that will stand the test of time, as this will
ensure your first few years in your new home isn’t spent constantly renovating in-line with the latest trends.
When choosing timeless furniture, wood is often the first material that springs to mind. While solid wood is often
more expensive than other types, it boasts a distinctive aesthetic and durability that will look great year after year.
Whether you’re purchasing an oak cabinet for the living room or some luxury walnut bedroom cabinets, solid
wood is an effective way to add a high-end, comforting appeal to your home.

Prioritize Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is now one of the highest priorities for homeowners as it can make a significant difference in the
cost of utility bills. While adding energy-efficient features may be a large initial investment, the sooner you start
making the changes, the greater your savings will be – so we recommend optimizing your new home right away.

Some essential areas to evaluate energy efficiency are the boiler and the loft. Poorly insulated lofts can be a major
cause of energy wastage, even if all of your other appliances are in premium condition. If appliances such as your
boiler aren’t in a premium condition, however, this could only add more costs to your energy bills, particularly if it
breaks down during the winter months.

To keep track of your heating usage and spot issues early, a smart heating system is a great way to monitor your
spending. Smart heaters allow you to add more thermostats and controls to different rooms, including hot water
and heating – making this a logical investment for any first home.

Kari Calder Supports Camp Easter Seals

As a real estate agent in Saskatoon, Kari Calder can proudly say that she donates a portion of each and every sale to send kids to Camp Easter Seals. Easter Seals has been supported by Century 21 since 1979...well before Kari became a REALTOR® in Saskatoon! She has always been a proud supporter since becoming a Saskatoon REALTOR® in 2007 but since having a child of her own in 2014 she has stepped up her contributions.


To date, Century 21 REALTORS across Canada have raised approximately $12 Million to send kids to camp. In 2018 they had an astounding year and raised over $704,000 for Easter Seals through the C21 Kids to Camp Program: enough to enable over 330 kids who are living with disabilities to enjoy and benefit from the transformative experience of a lifetime at an Easter Seals summer camp in 2019.
As Tomany likely are unaware, we have an amazing spot in Watrous for local kids. Kari had the pleasure of visiting here in previous years and was blown away by the facility but also by the kids she met and all of the loving souls who work here and dedicate their time and energy to such a rewarding place. Century 21 agents from across Saskatchewan dedicate time each year to do a “camp clean up” before the season begins.

As a national company, Century 21 is a long standing partner and donor. Each year they have a variety of fundraisers including golf tournaments and events to help raise money to send kids living with disabilities to Easter Seals’ accessible summer camps across the country so that they can have fun, learn new skills, cultivate lifelong friends, and develop their confidence and abilities.

In 2018 our local Century 21 brokerage in Saskatoon was #3 in Canada and #7 in North America for funds raised. Amazingly, Century 21 Saskatoon was right behind Regina who held the #2 spot for Century 21 Canada with money raised.
Each home sold by Kari and each buyer represented by Kari in purchasing a home in Saskatoon (and surrounding communities) allows her to donate to this great cause and she has personally been raising above and beyond the amount to be recognized as a “Golden Heart” with the company. She can’t do this without her loyal Saskatoon real estate clients and those who refer their friends and family to her. So she wants to say thank you...we know the kids thank you as well!

Please consider Kari as your Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® with a golden heart when it comes time for your or your family’s next real estate needs.

Kari Calder is one Saskatoon's top Century 21 Fusion real estate agents. Kari can assist with all of your Saskatoon buying and selling real estate needs and she is a TRUSTED SASKATOON REALTOR
