Home Buyer Rescission Period began January 3, 2023


The new Home Buyer Rescission Period (“HBRP”) is now in force for residential real estate transactions in the province.

 The B.C. government introduced the HBRP, also known as the “cooling-off period,” as a consumer protection measure to give home buyers time to consider whether a purchase is right for them. HBRP gives buyers the right to rescind their offer up to three business days after the offer is accepted. If a buyer changes their mind, they must pay a 0.25% rescission fee to the seller.

Often contracts of purchase and sale contain subject clauses that provide buyers and sellers with an opportunity to perform their due diligence. The right of rescission is separate from any subject…

BC & Canada Government image

CANADIAN & BRITISH COLUMBIAN GOVERNMENT LEGISLATIVE CHANGES COMING JANUARY 2023

Foreign Buyer Ban

Beginning January 1, 2023, non-Canadians will be banned from buying residential property across Canada for two years. Although the federal government has still not released supporting regulations at this point, the Canadian Real Estate Association and BCREA will notify REALTORS® as soon as any guidance is released.  There are some exceptions (and Whistler may be one of them), full details won't be available to us until January 1st (frustrating I know!)

Bank of Canada


Bank of Canada Increased Interest Rates Today

Bank of Canada raised its bank rate today to 4.25%.  Read about inflation, GDP (Gross Domestic Product), CPI (Consumer Price Index) ad more in their latest press release HERE My recommendation if you are looking at purchasing or expect to refinancing in the near future is to lock in at  the best short term interest rate available for a year or 2 year term as the interest rate is expected to go down in 2024.  Still amortize your mortgage over 25 or 30 years, but give yourself the opportunity to negotiate with the bank who has already approved you.  Ask them for a lower interest rate when you see the interest rates start to go down again. Also read the fine print of your mortgage.  It…

Should you pay down your mortgage or invest in the stock market?

I just reviewed a great article that I wanted to share with you.  And the answer to the above question .... it depends. 

What is your mortgage interest rate?  How long until you retire?  How much money have you already invested in your TFSA or RRSP?  Wealthsimple has put together a great summary and table that can help you decide.  Take a look here



Sneakpeak:  it's always good to pay down your mortgage to increase your equity so that you have options if you want to invest in other properties.  And to decrease your overall debt as you head toward retirement.

Who is Dave Brown?  And what am I up to these days?

A short post for those who may be doing some googling and are a bit confused..  Dave Brown is my ex-husband and the father of my two wonderful children, Hayden and Griffin Brown who are now 18 and 22 years old.  Dave started selling real estate just before our son Griffin was born in 2004.   We separated in 2007.  Dave now works out of the Whistler Real Estate Company office.  Of course, when googling real estate in Whistler you will see both of our names come up.

I trained Dave when he initially started in real estate and he has become an excellent Realtor.  Which I always knew he would be.  He wasn't quite sure at the time and when he decided to keep selling real estate rather than going back to…
