Investing in real estate can be challenging. Having a trusted team of experts with a proven track record can help ensure your money is working hard for you.

“A diversified portfolio is an important part of creating an effective investment strategy and part of our approach to diversifying our clients’ investments involves allocating a portfolio to private real estate and new multi-family apartment buildings,” says Mitchell Prothman, Senior Portfolio Manager and Head of Real Assets, at Alitis Investment Counsel Inc.

“Our approach to investing in real estate is designed to generate moderate levels of capital appreciation and moderate levels of income over the long-term.”

As federal, provincial and municipal governments across Canada work to create easier access to affordable housing, they’re gradually making positive changes which make building multi-family homes more feasible for development companies and investors.

For example, the Federal government recently announced the removal of GST on new rental construction and the City of Victoria has brought forward a proposal to create further incentives for investors and development companies to come together and build more homes for residents. All of this indicates that investments in the real estate market will continue to be an important part of a strong investment portfolio.

“These recent announcements and proposals from the municipal, provincial and federal government agencies are great next steps in helping solve the housing crisis Canada has been experiencing for some time now, but there is more work to be done,” Ryan Patterson, Senior Real Estate Strategist at Alitis Investment Counsel says. “In the meantime though, these changes will help make building new multi-family homes more cost-effective for developers and investors alike, which benefits everyone in our communities.”
