The student housing market has been in a state of flux for several years now. It is a highly competitive market to get into. The landlords that are closer to the Universities, that have kept up with their maintenance issues on the property and have competitive rates will do the best.

At the same time, properties that are closer to the Universities will now command a higher price because of the demand for housing near the Universities.

There are opportunities that exist for REIN members in the area and if anyone is interested please call me at my home office: 519-742-2645.

Regards,

Bill

HI there,

The Connestoga area near Doon is an excellent place to invest in! Connestoga college plans to expand in the future and more students will be going there in the future.

The Record:Condo project wins city`s help (Oct 30, 2007)
http://news.therecord.com/News/Local/article/262943

QUOTE Giving $4.2 million in public money to help build luxury condominiums is hard for Jack Connell to swallow."Government has no place in such real estate development for private profit," he said last night as council considered plans for a $120-million Waterscape development by the Grand River at Water and Ainslie streets. "How many other developers will want the same considerations for their developments?"
...
But council stood by its incentives, which encourage developers to foot most of the cost of cleaning up contaminated factory sites, like the former Dobbie textile mill, where 230 condominium units are proposed in two, 12-storey towers.

Coun. Gary Price said if developers don`t do the cleanup, the city would have to.

"In the end that would cost us a lot more in tax dollars than what we are doing right here."

Waterscape developer Paul de Haas said the project would not proceed without the financial help from the city.
