RE/MAX Oceanview Realty   

5686 Cowrie St. Kiosk, Trail Bay Mall 

 April 23 – April 29    

 

The Real Estate Board is lobbying politicians to lower the Property Transfer Tax. This tax, 1% of the 1st $200K, 2% thereafter, was introduced in 1987 and was intended to affect mainly higher priced properties. However, in 1987 the average price of a home on the Coast was under $100K. Since then prices have quadrupled. The bill, which used to be less than $1,000 now averages almost $6,000 - clearly an unfair burden to buyers and an impediment to the real estate market.
