Posted by on Mar 5, 2015 in Blog

Right beginning of 2015 Spring, Vanacouver real estate market rises surprisingly, comparing to what happens in the neighbour province Alberta.

For international buyers, that means Vancouver housing prices are going down a bit because of the dollar value. Secondly, interest rate.

Because Canadian dollar becomes relatively weak these days. I think it necessary to update you about fees and costs related to buying and maintaining homes in Vancouver. Firstly, mortgage Since Canadian banks become more conservative when lending money to home buyers, the maximum mortgage you can get from banks decreases from 70% of the total price to 65% or even lower. Secondly, property transfer tax This is the way of calculating that cost: 1% of first 200,000, and then 2% of the remaining.
