Why is Montréal and the Rental Housing Market So Hot?

The Québec Apartment Investment Conference brings together owners, managers, developers, investors and lenders to provide valuable insights into the multi-unit residential market.

In 2018, the strong interest in this major market resulted in the conference being sold out with a record attendance of almost 600 landlords and executives.

During the past year, the residential rental vacancy rate has dropped by over 1% primarily due to the population growth and Montréal’s stronger economy.

This very focused, one-day conference will examine major trends, issues, opportunities, and strategies in Québec’s largest multi-unit residential market.

The conference program has been designed to offer the strongest possible value to owners, managers, developers, investors and lenders. Presentations will provide valuable insights in some major theme areas:

• Multi-family and apartment investment

• Income and net asset value improvement strategies

• New purpose built rental development 

• Financing sources and trends

• Niche market opportunities

The Québec Apartment Investment Conference is organized by the producers of The Real Estate Forums, in conjunction with a steering committee of apartment owners, lenders, brokers, and valuators.

In keeping with the strong reputation of the Forums, the conference will present high quality speakers on very topical issues at a relatively low registration fee.

Enhanced opportunities for networking will be available. Large and small firms that own apartment buildings will be joined by public and private equity investors, pension funds, financial institutions, lenders, commercial real estate brokers, lawyers, accountants, appraisers, and other specialists in real estate finance and valuation.

Attendance at the Québec Apartment Investment Conference may also qualify for several continuing education credits.

We hope you will take advantage of this very informative event.
