Six months of research at Canada’s leading real estate magazine has uncovered the top 100 investment neighbourhoods in this country – communities most likely to swerve a coming correction.
A team of journalists at Canadian Real Estate Wealth Magazine have used a host of statistics and industry analysis to form the Top 100 Neighbourhoods to Invest, the most comprehensive list of its kind. (See below for evaluation criteria.) The results – set to hit newsstands on Oct. 22 in the magazine’s November issue – identify the exact locations investors should focus on as a hedge against short- or long-term corrections.
While markets from all the provinces made The Top 100, number crunching and analysis uncovered several surprises that will challenge conventional thinking. Cases in point are small-town neighbourhoods in Ardrossan, Alta.; the Bowl District in Prince George, B.C.; Valley View in Brandon, Man.; and downtown central in Paradise, Nfld.
With the support of Re/Max and Verico Financial Services, the only national magazine for Canadian real estate has also looked to successful REALTORS®, mortgage brokers and major investors in all 100 communities to validate the selections.
“This was more than a research project,” says Canadian Real Estate Wealth Editor Nila Sweeney. “Our hope is that the Top 100 will bolster Canadian confidence in the real estate market and portray the diversity of investment opportunities outside of our major cities, although they, too, are represented.”
