What the HST means to you as a Home Buyer

Speak out and make a difference!

The cost of all real estate transactions will increase on July 1, 2010 with the introduction of the new HST (Harmonized Sales Tax).  This means that the cost of buying and selling all property will be impacted and will have a much greater impact on the purchase of a newly-built home. 

The BC Real Estate Association launched a new website to provide Realtors® and members of the public such as yourself with a convenient way to send a letter directly to the BC Government to express their opposition to the HST.
