Mainstreet Equity Corp. is on a buying rampage. The Alberta company has been continuing with a number of residential real estate transactions and has solidified itself as one of the nation's largest residential landlords. The company hasn't been paying any attention to the naysayers when it comes to Wild Rose Country's economic climate, and marching to its own drum has paid off.
In fact, Mainstreet actually picked up speed in 2018 and churned out its best year ever since 2014. Not only has it been buying up property voraciously, but the vacancy rates of its assets also showed some impressive numbers. The vacancy rate dropped to more than 6 per cent in last year's fourth quarter compared to nearly 10 per cent during the same time in 2017.
