Home Owners Grant Since 1957, the BC 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: • A Canadian citizen or landed immigrant and reside in British Columbia. • The registered owner or eligible occupant of the home located within the province. • Living 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 a court order recognizing the separation. 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+ 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

New initiatives in 2011: • The Industrial Property Tax Credit increased to 60 per cent of school property taxes payable by light and major industrial properties. • There is a new credit of 50 per cent of school property taxes for land classified as 'farm'. 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: • an apartment building • housing cooperative buildings • housing society buildings The corporation or cooperative or society applies for grants for all eligible property or units in the building and passes the grant benefit to qualifying occupants. An eligible property includes: • land shown as a separate taxable parcel on a tax roll that has a taxable improvement • a building containing at least two apartment units, each occupied by an eligible occupant • eligible land cooperative residences • a multi-dwelling leased parcel with two or more residences on it This article was prepared by the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board“An Association of Realtors”, for the information and benefit of consumers.

10 questions to ask your REALTOR®

1. How long have you been a REALTOR®? A new REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up- to-date training. Those in the business longer bring practical experience to the table. 2. What is your average list-to-sales ratio? A good REALTOR® should hold a track record for how many properties they have listed compared to how many they have sold within a given time period. In a good market, there would be about six sales for every 10 listings. In a poor market, there would be about four sales for every 10 listings. 3. How will your marketing plan meet my needs? Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often will you advertise? Do you have sample flyer, advertisements, and web copy?

4. Will you provide references? Ask if you can talk to past clients. Then follow up and talk to them. 5. What separates you from your competition? Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances. 6. May I review documents that I will be asked to sign? A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, listing agreement, seller disclosure forms. 7. How will you help me find other professionals? Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated.” It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors. 8. How much do you charge? You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. 9. What kind of guarantee do you offer? If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement? 10. What haven’t I asked you that I need to know? Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know. This article was prepared by the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board“An Association of Realtors”, for the information and benefit of consumers.

Inspecting the Home Inspector Although inspectors must be licensed by the province of B.C in order to operate, there is no guarantee that the inspector you choose will be a good one.  It is the buyer’s responsibility to perform research on all available inspectors in the area and choose the inspector that best suits their needs How long has the inspector been in business? There are two types of inspectors out there: A- Associate inspectors, many who are new to the industry and which have less that 250 paid inspections performed. If you choose to go with an associate inspector insure that they have a significant background in the trades or building industry. B- A Registered Home Inspector (RHI) will usually have significantly more experience and have achieved a level of competence with their associations that reflects that designation What was the inspector’s background prior to being a home inspector? This is probably the most important point. A strong construction and general contracting background is beneficial to the buyer and proves practical field experience regarding buildings and building design. Not all inspectors come from a tangible construction background.

Columbia, it is still a relevant question. Can I attend the inspection? Having a friend or family member I always encourage client participation, however it’s important that you who’s a building contractor or trades percheck with your realtor as there may be son perform your home inspection is not a good idea. some restrictions.

ey on closing costs. Even new homes require a proper home inspection. Do not count on the New Home Warranty insurer to ride to the rescue after the fact. Remember that the builder/developer is the one who pays the premiums Does the inspector provide other specialized inspection services? Some inspectors offer more than just standard home inspections and specialize in other services including but not limited to, thermal imaging (infrared camera inspections), mold inspections and/or air quality services, energy audits, or WETT inspections (wood burning systems). Although it is always helpful to hire an inspector that has other talents, please make sure that the basics are in place before doing so. What is the inspectors charge for a home inspection? Most detached home inspections in the mid Vancouver Island average between $400 and $600, depending on the size and age of the home.  We recommend starting the research as soon as you decide to start looking for a property.

Using the professional services of a REALTOR® is a smart business decision. Real estate transactions may be among the largest investment decisions you make. It’s important to find the right REALTOR® to work with. There are 1000+ REALTORS® working north of the Malahat. Some are fresh new REALTORS®, looking to build a career and eager for clients. Others have been in the business for 20 years, or more, and are well established. Some REALTORS® specialize in a particular community or property type, such as townhouses or commercial properties. It’s a good idea to meet with and interview several REALTORS®. You’ll learn about how they do business, whether their personality is a good fit, and whether you have confidence in their ability to do the best job, for you. Before you enlist the help of a REALTOR®, you should have a clear set of

objectives in mind. Be honest and open in discussing your financial situation and, if you’re buying, carefully review the features you absolutely must have in a home, versus those features you’d merely like to have. Where to begin the search? Ask friends and colleagues for referrals. Check out REALTOR® websites. See who is actively listing similar properties. Visit a local real estate office, tell them what you’re looking for, and let them help match you with a . Whomever you choose, be assured that REALTORS® abide by a Code of Ethics demanding high standards of professional conduct to protect the interests of their clients.

Realtor® code of ethics Under all is the land. Upon its wise utilization and widely allocated ownership depend the survival and growth of free institutions and of our civilization. Through the REALTOR®, the land resource of the nation reaches its highest use and private land ownership its widest distribution. The REALTOR® is instrumental in moulding the form of his or her community and the living and working conditions of its people. Such functions impose grave social responsibilities which REALTORS® can meet only by diligent preparation, and considering it a civic duty to dedicate themselves to the fulfillment of a REALTOR®’s obligations to society. The REALTOR® Code of Ethics of The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) is universally recognized by real estate professionals and consumers alike as the measure of professionalism in real estate. The REALTOR® Code is intended to define the high standard of performance the public has a right to expect from those licensed to display the REALTOR®  trademark. In the same manner that the real estate marketplace is a dynamic, demanding environment, so the REALTOR® Code is, has been, and will continue to be a demanding document; a plan for professionalism in real estate, capable of including and accommodating every change, challenge and controversy which arises. Since 1913, when the first Code of Ethics was approved by the National Association of Real Estate Boards, it has served as the ten commandments of the real estate fraternity, binding REALTORS®  together in a common continuing quest for professionalism through ethical obligations based on honesty, integrity, fairness, accountability and professionally competent service. The REALTOR® Code has been amended many times over the years to reflect the changing needs of the public and the values of society. Most recently, the REALTOR® Code was revised in 2005 to accommodate new technologies and an evolving marketplace and to focus on the REALTOR® trademark as an assurance of a high level of brokerage service and protection. Any charge filed shall read as a violation of the REALTOR® Code and/ or one or more of the Articles of the Standards of Business Practice. An Interpretation may only be cited in support of the charge or the defence. Penalties for violation of the REALTOR® Code shall be established by the local board or other body authorized to conduct discipline proceedings. This article was prepared by the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board“An Association of Realtors”, for the information and benefit of consumers.
