Increased Interest Rates Could Give These Real Estate Stocks The Mortgage Rate Jitters

Written by

The TSX real estate stocks on our list today could either benefit or suffer from increased interest rates; those that provide brokerage and lending services may see their returns increase; however, the ones on the development side who use financing for their operations will certainly experience the downside of rate hikes.

As the banks begin to raise their mortgage rates, one-by-one, real estate companies that borrow will start to feel the pinch. Increasing mortgage rates will ultimately lead to larger current liabilities for real estate companies, and they’ll have to balance how much they pass down onto their tenants. If the real estate brokers tack on higher rental payments to cover their margins it may just push the small business owners out of the property.

[Given the above, the following] 4 TSX real estate stocks could get the mortgage rate jitters:
