Sales down, values up in Lower Mainland commercial real estate

Commercial real estate sales in the Lower Mainland have edged down from last year’s record highs while dollar values continued to rise in the third quarter (Q3) of 2017.

There were 652 commercial real estate sales in the Lower Mainland in Q3 2017, an 8.8 per cent decrease from the record 715 sales in Q3 2016, according to data from Commercial Edge, a commercial real estate system operated by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV).

The 652 sales in Q3 2017 are 10.7 per cent above the five-year Q3 sales average for the region (589).

The total dollar value of commercial real estate sales in the Lower Mainland reached $3.270 billion in Q3 2017, a 16.1 per cent increase from $2.815 billion in Q3 2016.

“While there have been fewer commercial sales this year compared to 2016, activity remains in line with the long-term average for the region,” Jill Oudil, REBGV president said. “On the pricing side, dollar values for commercial properties have climbed about 16 per cent in the last year. This growth can be attributed, in part, to the extended economic growth we’ve been experiencing across a variety of sectors in our province.”

Want something?

Pretend You Already Have It!

Your mind is often your greatest tool, but as anyone who has been taken over by fear, frustration, or worry knows, it can also be your greatest enemy. Whether you’re concerned about not having the respect of your peers or that a customer isn’t calling you back because she’s gone to a competitor, over-thinking the issue only serves to compound the worry. Instead, pretend you have what you want. Act as if your peers respect you or the customer is loyal. These may be fantasies, but what you’re worrying about may be as well. It’s better to stop the worry and act confidently; chances are better you’ll get what you want.

3 Pillars Of Real Estate

Fundamentals in a market don’t change, don’t go for the new shinny thing.

Stats show 7 out of 10 will have to depend on the Government in their retirement. Only 3 out of 10 are willing to take control of their lives. How do we make it 4 out of 10?

Committed to making retirement an option instead of necessity. I will show you how.

Put your money in Alberta, the fundamentals are pointing to Alberta right now.

Rainmakers know the fundamentals.

This is not a get rich quick method. Create long-term wealth

Surround yourself with like minded people.

Commitment is key 3-5 years.

Be willing to do what others won’t do, grab control of your lives.

Quality investing, use the fundamentals not emotion.

  1. Systems – follow a proven system, get you in and out at the right time. Cut through the hype and bull.
  2. Relationships – #1 tenants
  3. Follow through – take action
