Ensure wide sales exposure by using the MLS needs. Using the MLS, a realtor can search the database for homes that suit budgets, location preferences and family requirements, and quickly put together a short list of suitable homes. This way a buyer can decide what home they want to see, what their options are and what types of properties the market has to offer. For sellers, the MLS, matches your property with as many qualified, motivated buyers as possible. The MLS exposes your property to people most likely to purchase it and makes sure you won’t waste your time showing your home to those who are not truly interested. When you make the decision to sell ensure you ask your realtor about an MLS listing. The MLS will ensure wide exposure of your home to a broad range of interested people.

What is MLS®? he Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a co-operative marketing system that maximizes exposure of properties for sale. It is a central registry of properties used by realtors to match buyers with properties for sale. Most homes sold in Canada are sold via the MLS systems operated by real estate boards across the country. The MLS system includes a sophisticated computer database of properties indexed by price, location, type of home, number of bedrooms, amenities and so forth. The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) MLS maintains information on between 4,800-7,000 active listings of property for sale on the Island, and typically receives 77 new listings every day. Listings range from undeveloped lots to business opportunities or special properties. Listings are updated throughout the day.

T

Why does it work? The strength of the MLS system rests in the quality and accuracy of the information. Government, economists, financial institutions, appraisers and others all rely on MLS data. This is because realtors who submit the listing information, and MLS staff at real estate boards who conduct quality control, are trained and educated in the complexities of real estate. Realtors know how to describe a property accurately and what information must be disclosed in an MLS listing. For instance, if there is a restriction on the use of a property, something called an

easement, this information must appear in the MLS listing. Also, the MLS connects buyers and sellers. If the MLS system did not exist, sellers would have to choose an individual real estate brokerage to list their home and only that brokerage would have the information about it and the ability to show and sell it. If the MLS system did not exist, buyers would have to go from real-

tor to realtor to view the listings of each individual brokerage. Many alternate systems and services exist to buy and sell homes and they all compete for customers. The MLS is the realtor option. How does MLS benefit consumers? A large part of the realtors’ job lies in finding properties that meet a buyer’s

What about REALTOR.ca? The public website www.realtor.ca is not the MLS system. Local MLS systems are owned and operated by local real estate boards, for use by realtors. Realtor.ca is an advertising vehicle that gives consumers direct access to information about MLS listings. The website is provided by realtors across Canada to help market properties on behalf of their clients. The home listing information on www.realtor.ca streams from the MLS but does not contain the full collection of information on the system. This article was prepared by the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board- “An Association of Realtors”, for the information and benefit of consumers.

Know the home owners grant

S

ince 1957, the B.C. government has helped reduce the amount of property taxes you pay to your local government. To be eligible for the grant, the property owner must be: s!#ANADIANCITIZENORLANDEDIMMIgrant and reside in British Columbia. s4HE REGISTERED OWNER OR ELIGIBLE OCcupant of the home located within the province. s ,IVING IN THE HOME AS YOUR PRINCIpal residence. The grant doesn’t apply to summer cottages, second homes or rental properties. Spouses who live together, who are married or live together in a marriage-like relationship, including same-sex partners, can qualify for a grant on one residence in the province in a calendar year. Spouses who live apart can each claim a grant on their principal residence if they have a written separation agreement or ACOURTORDERRECOGNIZINGTHESEPARATION Eligible home owners must apply for their grant each year before their tax due date. How much is the grant? For 2011, the basic grant reduces taxes for home owners under the age of 65 by up to $570. The additional grant for home owners aged 65-plus and eligible veterans and disabled home owners is $275, for up to a total of $845. The basic grant is reduced by $5 for each $1,000 of assessed value over $1,150,000 and is eliminated on homes assessed at $1,264,000 and above. The additional grant is reduced by $5 for each $1,000 of assessed value over

$1,150,000 and is eliminated on homes assessed at $1,319,000 and above. For information, please visit: www.sbr.gov. bc.ca/hog Multiple owners, multiple grants? If you own a property with others, decide which owner will pay the taxes so you don’t pay twice. If, for example, there are three owners living in a dwelling as a principal residence, only one Home Owner Grant can be claimed. You may qualify for the Home Owner Grant if you’re a shareholder of a corporation, or a member of a housing cooperative or housing society that owns: sANAPARTMENTBUILDING sHOUSINGCOOPERATIVEBUILDINGS sHOUSINGSOCIETYBUILDINGS The corporation or cooperative or society applies for grants for all eligible property or units in the building and passes the grant beneďŹ t to qualifying occupants. !NELIGIBLEPROPERTYINCLUDES s LAND SHOWN AS A SEPARATE TAXABLE parcel on a tax roll that has a taxable improvement s A BUILDING CONTAINING AT LEAST TWO apartment units, each occupied by an eligible occupant sELIGIBLELANDCOOPERATIVERESIDENCES s A MULTI DWELLING LEASED PARCEL WITH two or more residences on it.

B

efore approaching lenders, you should get to know some basic mortgage concepts. You can start by visiting the glossary section and read up on mortgage-related terms. Get pre-approved: Pre-approval of a mortgage is when your lender has reviewed all your ďŹ nancial information and has determined the maximum amount of money you can borrow. The advantages include that you: s KNOW HOW MUCH YOU CAN borrow, so you don’t waste time looking at properties you can’t afford s DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT rising interest rates while shopping for a home, as usually the mortgage broker will guarantee the current interest rate for 60 to 90 days s HAVE AN EDGE WHEN YOU THINKSTOCK PHOTO make an offer, because the seller Do your research and consult with your bank or financial institution on what types of mortgages are right knows you’re more likely to get a for you. loan s SAVE TIME WHEN YOU APPLY Most lenders will reduce their help you ďŹ nd a lender and the cluding a letter from your emfor your loan because you’ve posted interest rate so don’t be best mortgage package. ployer verifying your salary already assembled your paper- shy about bargaining.

After your application is complete, you will know how much you can borrow and you will be ready to start searching for a home. Mortgage payment tips: Whether you’re a ďŹ rst-time buyer or you’ve decided to reďŹ nance your home, consider the following money-saving steps when calculating your mortgage payments: By shortening your loan repayment or amortization period to 20 years from 25 years, you’ll pay your mortgage off ďŹ ve years sooner. You’ll pay higher monthly payments, but you’ll build equity faster and you’ll pay less in interest over the long term. Apply for a prepayment opTION)FYOURECEIVEONE YOUCAN directly pay down some of your principal before it’s due. Make sure to check for prepayment penalties. By paying biweekly instead of monthly, you’ll make 26 payments in a year or 13 months instead of just 12 months and reduce your amortization to about 20 years from 25 years.
