editor’snote

Get it in writing

and have your lawyer review your agreement

B

uying a brand-new home offers you an opportunity to customize it to your liking. It can be a dream come true and an investment for the future – but don’t forget, it’s also legal transaction. The term “get it in writing” has never been more important than in the case of the newhome purchase, since such a document outlines everything your home will have in it, on it and around it. Otherwise known as the Agreement of Purchase and Sale, the contract spells out the terms and conditions between you and your builder. Without it, if there is a misunderstanding or disagreement, it’s impossible to prove what was agreed upon. Since building a home is much more complicated than a resale transaction where the unit and/or property likely already exists, there is no set Agreement of Purchase and Sale or standard contract for buying a new home. In some provinces, builders may have standard contracts prepared by the local home builders’ association or their new-home warranty program. Builders often prepare their own agreements so contracts can vary from one builder/developer to another and from province to province. Before you sign a contract, review it carefully with the builder and ask questions to make sure you fully understand what it contains. Your next step is to then take it to a real estate lawyer and have it reviewed. Once it is signed, it becomes a legal document and an agreed-upon contract, so seeking the services of an experienced real estate lawyer is an important step toward ensuring that your dream home becomes a reality.

Why infrastructure is crucial to housing

As we tackle the challenge to improve and expand, proximity to existing amenities is increasingly key

I

t’s no secret infrastructure is important to any city and its residents. And in the case of many Canadian cities, there is a growing need to repair existing infrastructure that is decades old, as well as build new infrastructure to accommodate growth. This is why various home building associations and other organizations see some promise with the latest federal budget tabled on March 21, in which Finance Minister Jim Flaherty promised increased funding for infrastructure improvement. Proximity and access – from everything from highways and bridges to health care to schools to shopping to recreation – are critical for builders and buyers alike. Development charges for developers to build new communities, and help fund infrastructure growth, need to be reasonable, so as to deliver new-home prices to buyers that are affordable. It will take months, if not years, for new funding to reach municipalities. In the meantime, prospective homebuyers would be wise to pay careful attention to these matters, and to make honest assessments of how well equipped your potential new-home communities are in this regard.

46 elementary schools across BC score improvement ACROSS BRITISH COLUMBIA, 46 ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS SHOWED significant improvement in their academic performance over the past five years, according to the Fraser Institute’s annual school rankings. The Report Card on BC’s Elementary Schools 2013 rates 853 public and independent elementary schools based on 10 academic indicators using data from the annual Foundation Skills Assessments (FSAs) administered for the BC Ministry of Education. “By pinpointing the subject areas in which individual schools are improving or declining and how their academic performance compares to that of other BC schools over the past five years, our report helps educators prioritize learning challenges in their schools,” says Peter Cowley, Fraser Institute director of school performance studies. The complete results for all 853 elementary schools are available at compareschoolrankings. org, where visitors can compare individual schools with others based on their results over the last five years. “Our report shows that all schools are capable of improvement, regardless of the personal or family challenges their students might face,” says Cowley. “We all want the best possible education for our children. To achieve this, every BC school should make improvement Job One.” Of the 20 BC elementary schools showing the fastest academic improvement over the past five years, 10 are public schools where the parental income is below average. At three of these schools, ESL students account for more than 33 per cent of school enrolment. The complete list follows.

What location should you choose? Location is a critical factor when shopping for a new home. After all, a home with everything you need – but in the

wrong location – is still not likely going to be the right home for you. Here are some things to consider about location:

»Do you want to live in a city, a town or in the countryside? »How easy will it be to get to where you work? How much will the commuting cost? »Where will your children go to school? How will they get there? »Do you need a safe walking area, or recreational facility, such as a park, nearby? »How close would you like to be to family and friends? Sustainable neighbourhood You also may want a “sustainable neighbourhood” that meets your needs, while protecting the environment. Homes in a sustainable neighbourhood are located near shops, schools, recreation, work and other daily destinations. This helps reduce driving costs and lets residents enjoy the health benefits of walking and cycling. Land and services, such as roads, are used efficiently. Sustainable neighbourhoods also feature a choice of homes that are affordable. In your search for a sustainable neighbourhood, here are some key questions to ask: Easy transportation »A re stores, schools, recreation facilities, restaurants and health services within walking or cycling distance? Will your children need to take a bus to school? Can they walk to the park? Can you do most of your shopping without a car? »A re there nearby bus stops and cycling lanes? How long is the bus ride to work, or school? Can you safely bike? House size and features »A re the homes compact with shared walls to reduce heating costs? »A re homes reasonably sized with lots requiring less upkeep? »A re there different dwelling types (such as single-detached, semidetached, townhouse and apartments) in the neighbourhood? »A re the lots modestly sized? Roadways narrow? Driveways/parking areas small? Do natural drain ways lead to streams and storm water ponds or parklands? Is there native vegetation and streams with woodland edges?

“Look and feel” »Do the buildings have a friendly face to the street? Are the community centres, shops and meeting places welcoming? »Are there trees lining the street? Do you find the homes interesting to look at? Do the building sizes feel comfortable to you? Are the roads easy to walk along or cross? Safety »Do the homes have “eyes on the street”? (In other words, are there people around who might watch out for you? Is there somewhere to go in an emergency?) »Is there adequate street lighting? »Are there safe places for children to play? »A re the streets safe for cyclists and pedestrians? »Is traffic slow moving and light?

Further intervention

in housing markets not warranted: CHBA The federal government should refrain from further intervention in the housing market by adjusting mortgage lending rules, according to the Canadian Home Builders’ Association. In his inaugural address at the recent 70th National Annual CHBA Conference in Lake Louise, Alta., Incoming President Deep Shergill of Calgary said that such intervention represents “a hammer” that impacts all housing markets, both those that are healthy and those yet to fully recover from the recession. Shergill called on the government to be prepared to take remedial action if housing activity falls below demographic demand or if price stability is threatened. “It seems less than forthright to constrain consumers’ ability to buy a new home – a real asset, while allowing usurious credit card interest rates to bury many consumers in non-asset backed debt,” Shergill said. Working to maintain a stable financing environment would be one of seven priorities in his plan of action for the coming year, he said. The others are regulation, government-imposed costs, a skilled and productive workforce, land availability, market intelligence and investment in research and development. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) has played a central role in maintaining stability in mortgage markets since the financial meltdown of 2008, Shergill said. “We are extremely pleased that the federal government recognizes the corporation’s continued effectiveness.” Government-imposed costs are pushing house prices ever higher and must be rolled back

and reduced, Shergill said. “So long as governments persist in confusing the effect of low interest rates with real housing affordability, they will fail to recognize the steady erosion of housing affordability.” The same pressures that add to the cost of a new home also inflate the value of existing homes, with no value-added. As a result there is a multiplier effect through the resale housing market every time a new charge, fee or levy is applied to new development. In some urban centres the relationship between house prices and household incomes has reached a crisis point. In consultations on the federal government’s plan for long-term infrastructure, Shergill said the CHBA has pointed out that calls for new development to pay its own way deflect from the failure of politicians to invest in basic infrastructure over many decades. “What some call an infrastructure deficit should more correctly be recognized as a legacy of failed leadership. Requiring new development to pay for bad decisions in the past is unacceptable.”

Parc Riviera

Riverfront living in Richmond by Susan M Boyce

T

here’s nothing to quite compare with a Parc Riviera home by the river: dazzling sunsets, morning jogs or cycling along the waterfront trails, and the fresh scents of lush greenery from the parklands and gardens that meander throughout the property. It’s all part of the old adage “location, location, location” that’s been turning heads at this one-of-a-kind, master-planned community in Richmond ever since the first visitor step into the presentation centre. “It just doesn’t get any better than this,” says Jeremy, an enthusiastic first-time buyer who’s counting down the days till he moves into his Parc Riviera townhome later this fall. “I’ll be living about 30 seconds walk from the dike trail along the river, the Olympic Oval is practically right outside my front door, and because I work in Richmond it’s going to cut my commute time to almost nothing.”

No question this combination of size and price is appealing to a diverse demographic. “Young couples see this a rare chance to raise their family in riverside community where neighbours actually get to know each other and amenities are right outside your front door,” Dave says. “Downsizers see the opportunity to enjoy single-level, maintenance-free living without compromising the space they need for their single-family furnishings and treasures. And young professionals like knowing they’re investing in a community that will only get better over time.” Evolving neighbourhood With construction on the first phase now well underway, Parc Riviera’s pedestrian-friendly design is emerging more strongly every day – and like other owners, Jeremy is delighted to know he’ll be part of it. When complete, the community will encompass 20 acres and will feature nine condominium clusters plus townhomes and a spectacular amenities building named, appropriately, Club Riviera. Ultimately you’ll also find retail, restaurants and a 5,500-sq.ft. daycare. Yet there’s so much greenspace – five acres in total – that the ambiance appears more park-like than urban village. Still, Jeremy’s a firm believer that people should never buy something just because it looks good. “A home has to make sense with your lifestyle, so you really have to think about all the things that are most important to you. For me, it’s being close to my family and outdoor activities. Parc Riviera gives me that… and it looks great too.”

Value oriented “The value Parc Riviera offers is phenomenal, and we believe the townhomes offer the best value within the overall Parc Riviera community,” says Dave Bauman, sales and marketing Check it out for yourself director. “For example, we have two- and three-bedroom Parc Riviera’s initial phase includes condominium townhomes that overlook the river and the property’s homes priced from $249,900 as well as townhomes from courtyard, and they’re priced from $427,900. That’s about $378 per sq. ft. – an unheard of price in Vancouver just across $427,900. The Parc Riviera presentation centre and two display homes are open noon to 5 p.m. daily except Friday at the river.” 10111 River Dr. in Richmond. For more information visit Even better, he adds, these homes live large. “So many buyers have told us they love having floorplans that are 22 ft. parcriviera.com or call 604.231.5900. wide – it just feels more spacious and luxurious than the 15-ft. width you more typically find.” 46 metro vancouver new home guide | april 5 - 19, 2013

Tamara at DOMINION

Love at first sight by SUSAN M BOYCE

Tamara has rediscovered her love of entertaining and has even hosted the family Christmas dinner.

WHEN TAMARA AND HER BOYFRIEND,

Darren, fi rst walked into the presentation center at DOMINION in Port Coquitlam, they felt as if the stars had just aligned. “We stayed here for ages,” she says. “We saw the showhomes, did the walk through with hardhats and boots, and eventually we just looked at each other. He said ‘So, do you want to put down a deposit?’ I said ‘Yeah,’ and that was it – simple.”

Since we moved here, I’ve turned into an entertainment guru. TAMARA

Meant to be “Darren had seen an ad for a condo project in downtown PoCo and wanted to take a look,” Tamara says. “I didn’t want to live in a condo, and these were pretty much the same price, so I told him that if he thought the other place was a good deal, we had to check these out too.” Their realtor set up appointments to look at both properties the next day. “It just happened that DOMINION was first,” Tamara says. Then she laughs and shrugs. “This just felt so right, we didn’t even bothered going to the other one.”

Serendipity once again played in their favour when it came to their new home’s floorplan. “We wanted a two-bedroom because my son still lives with us,” Tamara says. “And we knew we liked this floorplan, but we thought there were none left. Then right before we arrived, a previous buyer wasn’t able to close so this one came back on the market.” Spectacular design One of Tamara’s favourite features is her new home’s sunken living room – a first for MOSAIC. “It makes it feel like this is a separate space even though it’s still totally connected. And you get huge windows,” she says. “Every single person who’s visited us just loves it.” She grins. “So do we.” And lots of people are visiting. “I never used to entertain because I never felt I could be proud of the place I lived in.” She laughs. “Since we moved here, I’ve turned into an entertainment guru. We had people over two weeks after we moved in, 20 people came to the party I threw for my son’s 18th birthday, and for the first time in my life I hosted Christmas dinner for my family. Now I’m just looking for reasons to have people over.” With their first anniversary at DOMINION only three months away, Tamara says she and Darren can’t imagine a better place to live. “It’s the perfect place for the three of us right now, and when my son moves out, it will still be the perfect place for the two of us.” For information about this and other MOSAIC properties, visit mosaichomes.com
