What does the CMHC say?

In its most recent post, CMHC has received public feedback and is working to finalize the details and regulations under the Act, and how to enforce it.


CMHC's summary of the legislation is:

"The Act prohibits non-Canadians from purchasing residential property in Canada for 2 years. This act doesn’t affect Canadians and permanent residents. There may be exemptions for certain groups of people, types of residential property, and particular circumstances – these have not yet been established. (Once we’ve reviewed your feedback, we can establish the exemptions.)

The Act:

Foreign Buyer Ban

The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) published an update on the "Prohibition on the purchase of residential property by non-Canadians Act" (also called Foreign Buyer Ban) which comes into force January 1, 2023.  

While Whistler avoided British Columbia’s Foreign Buyer Tax (implemented in August 2016) and the Speculation and Vacancy Tax (SVT) (introduced in the province’s ‘Budget 2018’), it is not going to avoid this Ban.  Based on BC's experience with these taxes, such measures have had a small and often temporary effect on real estate markets, housing availability and affordability. The effects are largely isolated to large metropolitan markets, with no statistically significant impact in smaller communities.  The Act:

Did you know?

Sales Increase the closer we get

to Ski Season?


As we head into cooler temperatures our minds turn to...... skiing!

Did you know that a significant number of our sales each year occur just before the ski season begins? Buyers look to purchase their Whistler ski 'cabins' before the snow falls and skiing opens November 25th.

If you were considering putting your property on the market, fall is a great time to consider it.


My January to September review of the market shows that prices are remaining strong in all categories of properties.  Time to sell is a little longer and we are not seeing as many multiple offers.  The market is changing across North America with almost all areas lacking in properties for families to purchase.

How much are lawyer fees to buy or sell a home?

According to the Law Society of British Columbia,there are no fixed rates set for legal services.  There are 4 common methods used by Lawyers to calculate how much it costs to use their services:

  1. Fixed fee: regardless of the amount of time it takes.  This is common for real estate transactions
  2. Hourly rate: includes phone calls; meetings; research, preparing documents for court, letters, court appearances etc.  You will be invoiced on an ongoing basis.  
  3. Contingency fee:  a percentage of money you may win in a case

You will also see a term called Disbursements on your invoices which are costs…
