as of August 31, 2017
Real estate investment and development fundamentals remain favourable in Canada providing an attractive market for mortgage lending in high quality real estate assets.
- Demand for mortgage financing has remained stable as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and pension funds continue to raise capital to acquire new assets.
- An abundance of domestic and foreign investment capital continues to be deployed in Canadian direct real estate equity investments.
- Canadian real estate prices have appreciated recently and are expected to remain relatively stable.
High quality mortgages will be primarily secured by income producing real property where the principal and interest can be serviced from the cash flow generated by the underlying real property. The mortgage may be either first ranking, junior first ranking or second ranking.
