Dear Friends and Partners,

With CMHC's news of placing caps on rental property lending, it has made some markets busier. It'll prompt fence-sitters to buy, but may not affect the strategy of a long term buy and hold investor.

In our Edmonton market for example, small apartments and suited properties have been really tight. The townhouse market on the other hand is flat. Certain neighbourhoods attract more buyers than others as do price points.

People often forget that Edmonton can be a seasonal market and that extra effort is required to market to tenants and buyers during certain periods of the year.

Yedlin: $12B Pipeline 'Fantastic' News for Canada

By Deborah Yedlin, Calgary Herald, August 2nd, 2013

When asked how he was, entering the second floor room for the TransCanada press conference to announce the company's Energy East pipeline on Thursday morning, chief executive Russ Girling offered an understated grin and replied, "Not so bad."

Given what Girling went on to announce - that the $12-billion (before adding in the value of the existing line) project is not only going ahead but has been upsized from the original 850,000 barrels a day to 1.1 million bpd - "Fantastic!" accompanied by a high five might have been more along lines of how he was really feeling.  FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE

Lamphier: Energy East project shifts focus away From from Keystone XL and Obama

By Gary Lamphier, Edmonton Journal, August 1st, 2013

EDMONTON - Has U.S. President Barack Obama finally overplayed his hand by blindly reciting the green lobby’s spin, and stubbornly blocking TransCanada’s long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline?

It’s starting to look that way. After years of empty talk, other viable export options for Alberta’s growing supplies of bitumen are now beginning to gain real traction, undercutting Keystone XL’s strategic importance. If one or more of the proposed pipelines to Canada’s east and west coasts proceed, Obama will soon have to explain to security-conscious Americans why he poo-pooed the thousands of jobs Keystone XL would have created, while handing China, India and other Asian customers the keys to the world’s third-largest oil reserves, right next door in Canada.  READ MORE HERE
