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
