How to Save Thousands of Dollars on your New Home Purchase

Buyers Don’t Pay Property Purchase Tax on New Homes at Woodland Creek 

On February 16th, the BC Government gave buyers of new homes in British Columbia an advantage by exempting them from the Property Purchase Tax on new home purchases.  This regulatory change eliminates the provincial tax payable on real estate transactions in the amount of 1% on the first $200,000 and 2% on the balance, a savings of $13,000 on a new home purchase of $750,000.

All new homes at Woodland Creek in Sooke qualify for the new tax exemption.  With new home prices starting at $389,900, this saves buyers a minimum of $5,000 when making a ‘new home’ purchase in one of Victoria BC’s favourite seaside communities.

Below are some key points to consider:

1. The exemption applies only to newly built homes – not resale homes.

2. There is a full exemption for qualifying properties with a fair market value of $750,000 or less and a partial exemption for qualifying properties with a fair market value between $750,000 and $800,000.

3. The property must be 0.5 hectares (1.24 acres) or smaller.

4. The party claiming the exemption:

a. must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

b. must use the property as a principal residence.

c. does not have to be a first time home buyer.

 

Other Changes to the BC Property Transfer Tax Rate

Another change to the Property Transfer Tax Act is a new tax rate of 3% for properties with a fair market value greater than $2,000,000. The Property Transfer Tax (PTT) is now calculated as follows:

1. 1% of the taxable transaction’s fair market value that does not exceed $200,000.

2. 2% of that fair market value that exceeds $200,000 but does not exceed $2,000,000.

3. 3% of that fair market value that exceeds $2,000,000.

First Time Buyers Exemption 

The First Time Home Buyers’ Program eliminates the amount of property transfer tax you pay when you purchase your first home (new or resale).  The home must be $475,000 or less if registered and be 0.5 hectares (1.24 acres) or smaller

The Qualicum – Master on the Main Arts and Crafts New Home

Main floor living ranks high amongst the retiring baby boomer population and with that in mind we’ve created the Qualicum plan.  A home with a master bedroom and ensuite on the main floor with 2 or 3 extra rooms upstairs has made our Arbutus plan popular with couples looking to downsize in their retirement, but not downsize too much.  We think the Qualicum measures up nicely to meet the needs of discerning buyers looking for a ‘master on the main’ floor plan.

 

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 5.35.55 PM

The Qualicum is exceptional, offering a 1764 sq ft floor plan of open design living. “We find some buyers like the convenience and accessibility of main floor living, but want more space than a rancher,” said Blair Robertson co-owner of Totangi Properties. “We designed the Qualicum with this in mind, providing a large master bedroom and 5 piece ensuite with separate tub and shower and double vanity on the main floor and an additional 2 bedrooms, flex room and 4 piece bathroom upstairs. We expect to receive great feedback on this plan from buyers looking at ageing in place.”  The homes feature thoughtfully designed interiors with timeless finishes and features offered in Phase 3C 

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 5.37.51 PM

The main floor also features a gourmet kitchen complete with all appliances, soft close cabinet doors and drawers, glass tile backsplash & quartz breakfast bar. Powder room and laundry is accessed off the main hallway and next to the garage entrance. A well planned dining-living room is enhanced with a fireplace with wood mantle and tile surround and vaulted ceiling and access to a sunny landscaped and fenced yard and deck.  All of this in a welcoming community close to schools, shopping and Woodland Creek Park and Playground.

 

Qualicum Blog image

The Qualicum plans are on Arranwood Drive on Lots 26 and 24 in Phase 3C starting at $422,900 net GST included. Built by registered licensed builder, SC Smith Building Company, featuring a 2-5-10 New Home Warranty and supported by the award winning Totangi Properties customer service. Occupancy Fall 2016.

Video Walk Through – The 4 Bedroom Fir Plan

new home victoria

January 26, 2016 – – We just had the pleasure of handing over the keys to a new 4 Bedroom Fir plan which is becoming another one of our most popular plans.  This home plan and its details was featured in our earlier post –  The Four Bedroom Fir Plan – the perfect family home.

Just before the new owners arrived for their new home orientation, I had a chance to walk through it to make this video.   These buyers were introduced to Woodland Creek by their Realtor when the home was at framing stage and they were able to arrange for several custom changes that they wanted in their new home.

If you like the look of this, we have more Fir plans scheduled for construction. Contact us for details.
