Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Commercial real Estate Investing in Canada is the first book of its kind in Canada to inform and assist investors-both novice and seasoned-in building a portfolio of commercial properties that maximizes financial gains while minimizing time and expenses. Investors, of course, rely on an experienced team of professionals, and this book will also prove to be an invaluable resource for Realtors, lawyers, engineers, property managers, and the financial community.

Throughout Commercial Real Estate Investing in Canada, the author team of Pierre Boiron and Claude Boiron distill their considerable expertise as commercial real estate specialists to provides investors with a practical and motivational toolkit for success. From apartment buildings to townhouse complexes and mixed-use facilities, retail malls, and warehouses to office buildings, readers can rely on this authoritative reference to:

  • Source propertie4s
  • determine fair market value (and find real bargains!)
  • assess the balance between risk and opportunity
  • develop a grounding in law, taxes, financing, property management, and tenant legislation issues
  • leverage increases in property values to finance additional acquisitions
  • divest intelligently when the market signals are favourable.

Commercial Real Estate Investing in Canada also covers important aspects of the environmental footprint that buildings leave, and offers advice as to how to re-engineer a building with respect to many "green" aspects such as water usage, lighting, decreasing energy demands, and enhancing comfort levels for users.

Many fortunes have been made in commercial real estate and many more will be made in the future. With this timely guide and reference, both Canadians and global investors interested in the Canadian market now have an authoritative resource to help them move ahead with confidence.

From the Back Cover


Through our years of expereince in commercial real estate, it became apparent to us that we had gathered a body of knowledge that would be of interest to investors and professionals, such as Realtors, financiers, lawyers, property managers, and their tenants. We would often be called on to render an opinion or conduct research on various aspects of commercial real estate. Hence, we thought it timely to write a book that is both a primer on commercial real estate investment and a useful tool and reference guide for seasoned professionals.

Here, in broad strokes, are the main topics our book addresses:

  • why should consider investing in commercial real estate
  • what to look for in each of the main types of real estate
  • purchasing strategies
  • a primer in real estate taxation
  • how to build your team of professionals
  • how offers to buy and leases are structured and what you should pay attention to specifically
  • how commercial property financing works
  • an understanding of property management, repairs, and renovations
  • the requirements and responsibilities of being a good landlord
  • how to conduct due diligence for prospective tenants
  • ways to increase income and lower expenses from the property

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By S. Wiseman on April 4 2010
Format: Hardcover
The Boirons' book is a comprehensive and thorough reference book for anyone who wants to cover all the bases in commercial real estate. It is well organized, packed with useful information but, in my view, is best used as a reference work rather than an introduction to the field. It is a very worthwhile book for anyone interested in investing in commercial real estate and outlines the many pitfalls that an unwary investor might stumble into. I found that I was unable to read it from cover to cover (although I tried), and found that I could look into specific issues and topics as they arose. The chapters are essentially self contained treatises, so it is not always necessary to have read previous chapters. I expect that the book would also be quite useful for those interested in purchasing real estate in the United States or elsewhere because the topics and issues would be similar. I highly recommend this book, it is the best I've yet read on the topic.

This is the book that gave me the courage to get into Commercial Real Estate Investing. Fair is dense and not a pool side read but the author never intended it to be. Though we have an apartment building under our belt, I still refer to this book from time to time. This one is a keeper.
