We feel now is a pretty good time to analyse NexLiving Communities Inc.'s (CVE:NXLV) business as it appears the company may be on the cusp of a considerable accomplishment. NexLiving Communities Inc. owns and manages multi-unit residential real estate properties in Canada. The CA$31m market-cap company posted a loss in its most recent financial year of CA$2.2m and a latest trailing-twelve-month loss of CA$2.5m leading to an even wider gap between loss and breakeven. The most pressing concern for investors is NexLiving Communities' path to profitability – when will it breakeven? We've put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for the company, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

Consensus from 2 of the Canadian Real Estate analysts is that NexLiving Communities is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2021, before turning a profit of CA$819k in 2022. So, the company is predicted to breakeven just over a year from today. What rate will the company have to grow year-on-year in order to breakeven on this date? Using a line of best fit, we calculated an average annual growth rate of 150%, which signals high confidence from analysts. If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company may become profitable much later than analysts predict.
