Focus Sessions (following the main presentation):
Learn how to expertly navigate a rapidly-changing market. Attend one of two short sessions of your choice following our main market briefing for a discussion into the forces that shape our real estate decisions.
Focus Session 1: Owning land in a soft market: sell, hold, build?
What are your options when it comes to owning land in a soft market, and what are the key trends and financial metrics that will impact your strategic options? Should you sell, hold, build, or seek some other alternative? In this session, our experts will explore the different strategies that are available to you and examine how future sales prices, financing trends, construction costs, and changes in buying and lending appetites will impact your risks and returns, depending on the path you choose.
Focus Session 2: The case for rental
Don’t be so quick to rule out rental for your next apartment or industrial development. Strata is almost always the highest and best use, but there are some important considerations to make before ruling out rental. In this session, our experts will examine what is happening in the market and take a detailed look at some examples of strata vs. rental development, the advantages and shortfalls of each, and the key issues impacting development feasibility.
