Thank you to those whom attended our Annual Real Estate Outlook and Networking Social on November 18th. Your participation and interest made this year`s event a resounding success. For those that were unable to join, we are sorry you missed it, next time!
As we look toward 2016, it will be interesting to see what unfolds with the value of the Canadian dollar, the impact on foreign investments and the availability of investable assets across various sectors. With Vancouver ranked the No. 1 market to watch in Canada, it will also be interesting to see how the region, regulators and market responds to the ongoing challenges of housing affordability and what it means to consumer behaviours related to transit, rental housing, the suburbs and an aging Baby Boomer population.
And lastly, one final thank you to our panel: Andrew Warren, Darren Kwiatkowski, Jon Ramscar, Ben Smith and Susan MacLaurin for sharing their thoughts and opinions on the trends to consider in the industry, as well as to our Venue Sponsor!
Please join us next year as we reflect on 2016 and once again take a peek into what may be in store for 2017.
