Chinese Real Estate Investor worry about Vancouver Market, they are heading to Toronto

Chinese Real Estate Investors Move to Toronto | 中國地產投資者撤走?Due to slumped amid a flood of regulations, a group of Chinese real estate companies has moved from Vancouver to Toronto, such as Anbang Insurance Group.

According to CBRE Ltd’s data, Chinese investments in Vancouver dropped to $350 million in 2018; compared to 2016, which was 1 billion plus. Toronto took $526 million of Asian investments last year, which included an office building (256 million) purchased by Chinese investor Tigra Vista Inc.

Chinese investors are retreating globally following government restrictions on capital outflows in 2016. Due to a series of new taxes, Chinese investments dropped even more last year. To drive away some investors more is that the BC government proposed a bill the hidden owners in residential and commercial – fail to disclose your ID, you may fine of $100,000 or 15% of the property value.

Bal Atwal, a principal at brokerage firm Avison Young said: “In Vancouver, Chinese investment “had always been predicated on land, placing bets on land, whether it’s old shopping centers or office buildings even — they see underlying development and land value. They’re looking at Toronto now because they’re seeing a better arbitrage on that than they are here.”

國内房地產投資者撤出溫哥華, 轉移到多倫多

中國安邦保險集團(Anbang Insurance Group Co.)等公司在溫哥華商業地產的投資因大量監管而下滑,投資者紛紛轉向多倫多。

根據CBRE有限公司的數據,亞洲在溫哥華的投資在2018年降至近3.5億,比前兩年的10億美元有所下降。相比之下,2018年亞洲投資在多倫多有5.26億,略高於2017年,包括中國私人投資者Tigra Vista Inc.以2.56億收購的辦公大樓。

繼2016年政府限制資本外流後,中國投資者正在全球撤退。在溫哥華,去年亞洲投資下降幅度更大,部分原因是政府提出了一系列新稅,包括對房屋的投機和財產稅。BC省還提出了一項法案,要揭露隱藏的土地業主的身份 – 包括住宅和商業 – 如果你不披露就很有可能被罰10萬加元或15%的財產評估價值,以較大者為準,這個政策也驅逐一些投資者。

CBRE有限公司執行副總裁David Ho在Bloomberg溫哥華辦事處接受采訪時說:“你隨心所欲地改變了政策。” “投資者通常關注市場的穩定性,這不是穩定性。”

何先生專注於為北美城市帶來新的亞洲資本,而去年他90%的業務都在溫哥華,他預測今年該市可能只佔外國資本的一小部分,在多倫多完成的交易會更多。總部位於溫哥華的CBRE經紀Tony Quattrin表示,亞洲資本流動預計將佔溫哥華商業市場的不到20%,而過去三年的這一比例都超過25%。

上個月,Blackstone Group LP和Hudson Pacific Properties Inc.聯手收購了位於溫哥華的安邦旗下的Bentall中心。這家中國保險公司在被國家監管機構暫時扣押後,一直在加大資產卸載力度。

經紀公司Avison Young的負責人Bal Atwal表示在溫哥華,中國投資一直以土地為基礎,在土地上下注,無論是舊購物中心還是辦公樓 – 他們都看到了潛在的發展和土地價值不過他們現在正在考慮多倫多,因為他們看到了更好的套利,而不是他們在這裡。

CBRE計劃將更多的注意力轉移到將亞洲投資者帶到多倫多,因爲哪裏擁有更蓬勃發展, 而且科技和金融服務市場更好,最重要的是還有大量移民和千禧一代的推動。
