Premiere issue of Canadian Property Investor

The real estate experts at YPNextHome bring you the investing advice you need

TORONTO, Oct. 28, 2016 /CNW/ - Yellow Pages NextHome, the market leader in real estate marketing and information, is excited to announce the release of Canadian Property Investor. This new publication rounds out the company's extensive portfolio of real estate magazines, which includes New Home Guide, New Condo Guide, Renters Guide and Commercial Investor.

In response to Canada's red-hot real estate market and the growth of interest in real estate investment, YPNextHome has responded to the gap in the market, providing detailed insight, big data and statistical analysis to investors. The team at YPNextHome surveyed Canadians and questioned the experts, compiling the important information into concise articles, making real estate investment accessible to everyone, from the first-time dabbler to those creating a secondary income or full-time interest developing a real estate investment strategy.

The seasoned editors at YPNextHome collected and compiled data from coast to coast, developing a concise proprietary methodology in order to define Canada's Top 50 Places to Invest. They provide the facts to back up the locations on this list – vacancy rates, employment stats, income levels – and you might be surprised to see what communities made the list, and which city topped it.

"While we hear a lot about foreign investment in Canada – it's in the news constantly," says YPNextHome President Jacky Hill. "Our research also shows the extensive interest the average Canadian takes in domestic investment opportunities. Canadian Property Investor is our opportunity to showcase these opportunities on a national level."

From a Saskatchewan farmer to a Calgary flight attendant to a couple needing to finance their retirement, Canadian Property Investor has connected with real investors to share stories about how and why they decided to delve into real estate investment. Far from professionally trained real estate experts, these investors are easy to relate to, and offer the simple advice that set them down a successful path. While the spectrum of investors is as diverse as the nation's residents, historically, this wasn't so. Canadian Property Investor takes a closer look at women investing in real estate and how that has changed in recent years.

"Investing in real estate requires patience and education," says Shelley Visser of Calgary, one of the investors who shared their insights in the publication. "The content in Canadian Property Investor, including the diversity of people profiled and the many avenues discussed, underlines this point. There is no single method to invest in real estate – just discover who you are and how you want to get there. This magazine explores the various means, and will help novice and seasoned investors through their journey."

This premiere issue has the information that every investor should know, such as in The Starbucks Effect. Is it a sign of gentrification or just another buzzworthy bit of jargon? Digital Editor Sonia Bell investigated, and readers will appreciate the caffeine-infused response to build upon their investment strategy. Canadian Property Investor also showcases the safest cities in Canada – and with data from Statistics Canada data, most investors will quickly realize the relevant research has been done for them. "Economies change, companies expand or contract and capital projects get delayed all the time," explains Senior Editor Wayne Karl. "Using data as the basis for your research is paramount, but it's just as important to stay on top of local economic developments when doing your own due diligence on potential investment markets."

From the professional insight of industry heavy hitter Don R. Campbell, to scoring some information from savvy Calgary investor Kodette LaBarbera, wife of former NHL goalie Jason LaBarbera and star of W Network's hit series Hockey Wives, this magazine looks at real estate investment opportunities from all angles. Whether you're looking for a project to test the waters, or a significant addition to your portfolio, Canadian Property Investor magazine can help. "Real estate investment isn't just about property acquisition," says Hill. "It's a wealth strategy, the single biggest savings account you could ever have, whether you stop at one property for personal use or you choose to amass a large and diverse portfolio."

"As a market leader for real estate information and advertising, we've seen the demand for investor information grow exponentially over this past decade," says Yellow Pages NextHome Editor-in-Chief and Director of Content, Susan Legge. "With our access to industry experts and our deep comprehension of the Canadian market, we feel this fall is the ideal time to connect Canadians to real estate investment."

Canadian Property Investor is out now and being distributed free of charge in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver via boxes, street retail racks, airport lounges, transportation hubs, hotels, The Globe & Mail newspaper insertions and direct mail. The digital version is available on thru at
