Purchasing and Financing Information

Purchasing

 

Our sales personnel will be happy to assist you in making your offer. Contact our office by phoning  (604) 606-7900  or e-mail sales@niho.com. Please note that all property sales are on a first come, first served basis.

We require a formal written offer to purchase the property, and our acceptance, before we will remove the property from the market for you. The purchaser is responsible for the transfer of title. We can provide you with a list of local lawyers or notaries who can convey title for you.

Financing – Purchase by Mortgage

Mortgage financing is available on approved credit for a limited number of properties. You may qualify to purchase the property using a purchase agreement and mortgage.

Although we are flexible with the terms of our mortgages, we generally require 50% of the purchase price of the property being paid in cash.

Our interest rates do fluctuate over time, so please talk to a sales representative for current rate information.

You may pre-pay any or all of the outstanding mortgage balance at any time without penalty.

Any mortgage brokerage fees incurred for the creation of the mortgage will be the responsibility of the purchaser.

Please contact a NIHO sales representative to learn more about available terms for your purchase.

Taxes

The Government of Canada may charge a one time 5% goods and service tax on the purchase price of the property.

The Government of B.C. charges a one time property purchase tax on all real estate transactions. This tax is 1% on the first $200,000 and 2% on all portions beyond $200,000.

Annual property taxes are due in early July of each year. In the year of purchase, these taxes are apportioned according to the number of days you actually own the property. For example, if you bought the property on July 15, 2015, you would have to pay only 196/365 of the 2015 property taxes.

Foreign Ownership

There are no restrictions or penalties for non-resident owners of land within the Province of British Columbia.
