Most of what affects your real estate value in Burnaby for the most part, is predictable. The most elusive part of the situation is the time factor. However, this can be narrowed down to the gap in the journey to pick the right time. Every circumstance that can cause real estate to increase in value can be attributed to one or more factors. The first, is inflation. Inflation is the increase in the cost of any item or service because of the increased cost to reproduce that item. In real estate these costs will occur because of several different circumstances. For example when the cost obtaining a building permit to meet construct roads and newer facilities goes up, this affects you. The investor has to take this into consideration. When new buildings cost more to make, older buildings then turn more valuable. Because your real estate investment is tied to a specific location, older, already improved properties may not be directly comparable other then the cost of replacement. At any rate you have to look at the infrastructure of all the elements that make up the community. We have to include the roads, the public and private facilities, shopping centers, theaters, banking systems, schools, air ports, jails, hospitals, sewer and water facilities and much more. Improving or expanding the infrastructure of a community has an impact on the value of properties. This can be both a positive and a negative impact, and some properties may go up in value while others go down. This double sided sword requires all real estate investors to be very watchful of proposed community changes as they affect your investment. Long range benefits may cause a sudden drop in value due to temporary construction or road detours. A property owner or tenant who is operating on a tight budget could find that even a slight decline in revenue can mean disaster. Riding out these temporary drops in value will be profitable to a secure investor holding out for the long run.

Building codes, zoning and restrictions are other factors within the scope of governmental control. These powers at hand can create title waves for property owners. On the positive side of the coin, property owners can be vigilant about what is going on with all the elements with their government that my change what property can be used for. Watching for government zoning changes and higher density area?s is the kind of thing all smart investors capitalize on when buying a property ahead of the boom. Few people actually pay attention to what is going on in their local political area. If you do, you will be the first in line to get your foot in the door! Keep your eye on the zoning board, planning and zoning department, local political area, city and country council meetings and everything else to do with city planning. Go to city hall and ask these questions.

Finally let?s increase the bottom line! When you increase the annual cash flow of an income producing property, you will most likely increase the value of the property as well. Many factors will cause this increase. Improved management, decreasing expenses, up-rents, and so on. Small increases in the bottom line can mean much greater increases in value. For example, increasing your annual rent by 8k a year could improve your property?s wroth by 20%. Keeping your eye on supply and demand for any item will have an effect on it?s value.
