SMG Holdings International is a premier investor in the commercial real estate market in various cities in Canada. We've come to a conclusion that more U.S. commercial real estate companies exploring expansion opportunities in Canada will find a stable economy, a stronger U.S. dollar that's helping make the Canadian market more attractive, and a booming housing market that’s driven by household creation, not speculation. For Canadian firms looking southward to the U.S., developers will find a market that offers opportunities for value creation, particularly as the labor market continues to strengthen. The market dynamics for each country are different, but commercial real estate firms will find cross-border opportunities if they know where to look.



Canadian commercial real estate developers who want to diversify their risk are looking to the U.S., where land is relatively more affordable. Also, the U.S. risk profile is regarded as fully corrected after the 2008 crisis. That explains why Canada was the leading global buyer of U.S. real estate in 2016. Opportunities for growth exist due to foreign capital flowing into the U.S. market for development projects.



Urbanization in major cities is leading the way in the Canadian housing boom. A tight supply of low-density residential land is driving up apartment rental and condominium prices in the major metropolitan areas. The U.S. market, meanwhile, is still in recovery mode from the 2008 crash. However, housing starts and new home sales are thriving.
