What’s ahead for real estate?
The Real Estate Review, Spring 2009
This publication provides insights into the key trends, developments, issues and challenges facing the real estate industry in Canada, with a Deloitte point of view. The key theme in this issue is, not surprisingly, the credit crisis and the broader economic slowdown that it has spawned, and from which the real estate industry has not been spared.
Rather than looking back at the events that have brought us here, we will focus on what might lie ahead. While we may not be able to predict everything the future holds for the real estate industry, our professionals provide their perspectives on what the lead economic indicators are saying for the general direction of our industry, the potential impacts, and strategies for dealing with them.
The spring 2009 edition of the Real Estate Review is the inaugural issue of our quarterly newsletter focusing on issues relevant to the real estate industry. In this edition, you’ll find:
- An economic outlook on the real estate sector
- An examination of recent tax developments for REITs and international real estate companies
- An article on the implications of Ontario’s harmonized sales tax on real estate
- An examination of how real estate players can better manage their risk
