The New York Times reports that investors purchased one-fifth of all single-family starter homes on the market, double the number they bought 20 years ago. Additionally, according to the 2017 American Community Survey, investors own and rent out about 18.2 million one-unit homes, including detached homes, townhomes, and duplexes, providing housing for about 42% of the nation’s 43 million renter households.In response to this large increase, Urban Institute has three points to consider: Are investors taking homeownership opportunities away from individuals and families?Are investors creating and maintaining quality affordable rental units?Are investors increasing home prices?Investors are more likely than individual buyers to buy in cash, giving them leverage in a home purchase over a traditional buyer. Additionally, bigger investors also have technological and managerial advantages that allow them to determine a house’s value so they can act quickly. According to GlobeSt.com, the demand for SFR is projected to outpace multifamily, office, retail, self-storage and hospitality growth in the next three years.“The stark difference in growth in the past decade between the number of renters and that of homeowners is quite astonishing, with the overall renter population increasing by more than 23 million versus less than 700,000 for owners,” said Kevin Maggiacomo, CEO and president of SVN International Corp on GlobeSt. “When the National Apartment Association reports that well over 4.5 million units are needed across all price points by 2030 just to satisfy current rental demand, you get a real sense of both the challenge and chance in the residential market right now.”There are some policies the Urban Institute notes to keep SFR investors and homebuyers on a level playing field and improve the market overall. This includes nonprofit to provide assistance to traditional buyers or pushing investors to broaden access to single-family homes near good schools and safe neighborhoods.

Be the person who nurtures relationships over time, playing the long game where others play for right now.Give value without any intention of capturing value now.Go first, be vulnerable, and share your story. This makes it safe for others to open up about themselves, knowing that you are open.Be digital where and when it makes sense, but be a real life human being in a face-to-face meeting or over the telephone faster than anyone else.Communicate with greater frequency, and plan those communications so that they are always valuable to the recipient.Have a presence by entering someone else’s world to prove that you care, and so you can gain a deeper understanding.Do something unexpected, something that isn’t required, and something with no intention of reciprocity. Do something just because.Remember the small details that others miss, and know that the little things are big things.Keep your commitments, large or small, and do so with great haste.Uncover issues, challenges, and problems outside of what you, your company, or your solutions solves, and make a difference.Do everything with greater consistency and commitment.Send thank you cards. Not emails.Listen. Listen. Listen. Listen. Listen.Care about someone else’s outcomes more than anyone else would dare.Value the relationship more than you value any single transaction.
OTTAWA — The Bank of Canada is widely expected to leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 1.75 per cent today after a 25-basis-point increase at its last setting in October.This morning’s announcement comes in the wake of a move by the Alberta government to curtail oil production in the province after Jan. 1 to try to clear a crude storage glut that has driven western Canadian oil prices to multi-year lows.Meanwhile, the recently announced plan to close the General Motors of Canada car plant in Oshawa, Ont., similarly offers a downside risk to future growth.Bank economists say an unexpected dip in monthly gross domestic product figures in September and lower-than-expected oil prices so far in the fourth quarter have dampened growth expectations and placed in doubt forecasts for a January bank rate increase.Lower growth prospects are expected to reinforce Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz’s strategy of moving very gradually on increases to its overnight rate.Economists say they will be closely watching Poloz’s speech on Thursday for signs of how events are affecting his view of the path forward.
