As more Canadians become renters, interest and investment in multi-family rental properties remain high and it leads to be the fastest-growing segment in the modular construction industry. Based on new reports from The Business Research Company, the global multi-family modular and prefabricated housing construction market size is expected to grow to $62.62B in 2027 at a CAGR of 7.1%. In the first half of 2022, multi-family investment transactions amounted to $7.1B with a national average return of 7.4%. This alone accounted for 22% of all real estate
transactions according to CBRE.
There are no signs of slowing down as Rentals.ca data showed the average rent per unit was up 12.4% and peaked at $2,024 by the end of 2022. Multi-family purchase transactions between CAPREIT, Q Residential, and Centurion Apartment REIT amounted to $533M for eight different
properties thus shows the growing demand and investment potential of such properties. With 1.5 million multi-family units to be built, incentivized by the Rapid Housing Initiative’s (RHI) $1.5B funding and $22B of investment from Scotiabank and Bank of Montréal, companies are rapidly modularizing their building methods to stake their claim of the massive profits.
