RAISING SPIRITS

Don’t let the winter weather fool you... Despite the cold, Waterloo Region is one of Canada’s hottest destinatio­ns. (for real estate investors, at least!) In 2018, the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN) ranked our region as the second best place to invest in Ontario over the next five years, ahead of Hamilton, Barrie - and the GTA. Even better for investors: REIN projects that our market has not yet experience­d its “boom.” How, with home values increasing so much over the past three years, is this possible? While REIN takes into account 36 economic and market factors when making its projection­s, it simply boils down to… Demand. For financial prosperity. A vibrant, family-centric community. Demand for our culture of innovation, fuelled by best-in-class companies and world-renowned colleges and universiti­es. And, perhaps most importantl­y, demand for homes that are 30-40% less expensive than those in the GTA. The reasons why we love our region are the same that attract new home buyers and investors - and they are making their move. Before the “boom.” Indeed, the climate is right in Waterloo Region for real estate investment - and the long-term forecast looks even brighter.
