As a realtor who has exclusively sold investment real estate for the past 25 years, I have realized that the residential real estate cycle is not difficult to predict – as long as you track the right numbers.
For example, northeast B.C. had record land sales in 2008. This was driven by large companies buying massive tracts of land in order to secure access to a valuable resource. In this case, the resource was natural gas. To buy before the crowd, you need to understand what to look for. To understand what to look for, you need to turn to experienced people.
Long Term Performance
The most important part of any real estate purchase is its long term performance. This appreciation builds real wealth. With an ability to identify trends, it’s not hard to pick the right area to buy in, but in this regard, not all developers are created equal.
The Senior Management at Western Canadian Properties Group have developed and sold over 12,000 properties over the last 20 years, through a well-proven and investor-friendly system that is the best in the industry today.
WCPG gives you the opportunity to buy into the best markets in Canada and the United States. These markets are identified through an analysis of economic fundamentals, which means increasing positive cashflow on the properties, and excellent potential for capital appreciation. What’s more, today’s exceptional financing terms and a truly hassle-free optional management program make this the perfect package.
Building New Homes In New Communities
In Northeast BC, WCPG builds brand new homes in growing communities. The VP of construction even lives where he builds. With a small down payment, you can secure your property for future purchase. In a rising market like Northeast BC, this means instant equity.
The materials selected for these homes are long lasting and virtually maintenance free. Everything from lighting to heating is designed for optimal energy efficiency, and with separately metered utilities, you won’t be hit with increased operating costs.
Thanks to a 2 – 5 – 10 New Home Warranty, there are no surprises, and no cash calls. What’s more, WCPG provides a dedicated internal management team, who keep you in the loop with photos and progress updates. You will always know what is happening, and when – all you need to do is ask.
On-The-Ground Leasing Team
WCPG also employs an on-the-ground leasing team, whose sole purpose is to ensure that your unit is rented from Day 1.
The leasing team starts the rental process when the construction of the property is 75% complete, and they leave nothing to chance. They maintain a strong internet presence on Kiijiji, Craigslist, and custom URLs, and run corporate campaigns. They know and speak regularly to the relocation personnel working at the largest employers in town, and field 24/7 responses to inquiries, meaning calls are always taken immediately.
WCPG’s professional management teams are always local to the market. They know the area, know the tenant profiles, and know the market rental rates.
They spend time screening upfront to avoid future problems, and perform regular physical inspections.
Leases are written with end dates, allowing rents and terms to be adjusted beyond rent control limits, maximizing investor return. Investor-friendly reports are distributed on a monthly basis, and meetings can be attended online, so you can easily join regardless of where your property is located.
Optional rental programs are available, such as sharing vacancy risk with other investors, sharing furniture costs to attract higher short-term rents, and negotiating discounts on property management.
