British Columbia will soon force people who use corporations or trusts to buy property in the province to disclose more complete information, a move the government says will close a loophole that has allowed speculators to evade real estate taxes.


Starting Sept. 17, new property-transfer-tax forms will require people to report additional information, including their name, citizenship and social-insurance number, if they purchase residential or commercial real estate through a corporation or trust. The new reporting requirements will have exemptions for charitable trusts and certain corporations, such as hospitals and schools.


“Not only is tax evasion in real estate fundamentally unfair, but it’s driving up the cost of housing for people who live and work in our communities,” Minister of Finance Carole James said in a news release issued Wednesday. “These changes give authorities another tool to make sure people are paying the taxes they owe.”

 

The changes are part of a series of steps the government is taking to address tax fraud in the real estate market that includes tracking presale condos, sharing homeowner grant information with the federal government and boosting the ability of auditors to act on tax evasion.


Two years ago, a Globe and Mail investigation detailed how one prominent real estate speculator had millions of dollars flow through his personal bank accounts or those of his companies as he flipped more than two dozen properties in and around Vancouver during the five years prior. In these transactions, he and his companies became the hidden – the legal term is “beneficial” – owners of certain properties, even though absentee foreign clients bankrolled everything from the down payment and mortgage payments to property-related taxes and other expenses. The homes and mortgages were registered in the names of his clients, their companies or spouses.

 

The financing his companies received from those clients came in the form of loans that were not taxable, and that fell within what’s known as “shadow banking” – an unregulated system that has exploded in popularity in China and appears to have gained a toehold in Canada. Such “peer-to-peer” loans, as they are also called, sidestep banks entirely and promise lenders significantly higher returns than they can get elsewhere.


On Wednesday, Denis Meunier, former deputy director of FinTRAC, the federal agency that analyzes money laundering, praised the new rules, but said the province must issue harsh penalties for providing false information in such an inflated property market.


“Think like a criminal: If you’re sitting on a $2-million property and someone [incorrectly] certifies who the beneficial owner is and the fine is $5,000, do you really care?” Mr. Meunier said. “If you’re that rich, you’ll pay the $5,000.


“It needs to be an incentive that exceeds the cost of doing business and, to me, that includes jail time.”


Ron Usher, a lawyer and member of the independent panel that guided B.C.'s overhaul of how it regulated real estate, said the new rules could help shed more light on how global capital flows into the province’s various real estate markets. However, he said the provincial government currently has no way to get similar information from property sellers, which represent a concerning backlog.

 

“How does all this money get into this system? That’s just part of the overall general concern people have,” said Mr. Usher, who also acts as counsel to the Society of Notaries Public of British Columbia.


He added that the it was curious B.C. made the changes now considering the government is still in consultations as to how it will create a new, publicly accessible registry of who owns real estate in the province.

Demand for modular homes is booming in B.C. as first-time homebuyers and downsizers increasingly embrace this affordable construction method.


From tiny homes to high-end single-family dwellings, factory-built housing can be built faster and cheaper than on-site. Modern designs and aesthetics are also appealing to a younger demographic, while the stigma surrounding modular housing is fading.


“We are seeing an increase in the 25- to 45-year-old buyer because they didn’t grow up with the modular homes that we have today,” said Joe Walters, CEO of Radec Group, a Penticton-based hybrid construction company that expanded into the modular market last year. Since this time, staffing has more than doubled to 75 and is expected to balloon to 125 next year.

 
While modular construction is only just entering the mainstream, this method is commonly used around the world, said Trevor Aubie, vice-president of development and marketing at Radec Group.
 

“We’re probably one of the last modern areas in the world that doesn’t build the majority of our houses in factories,” said Aubie. “It’s finally coming around to lose that stigma in Canada. Modular housing is a more affordable way of getting into the housing market.”


The company is currently involved in building homes for a modular housing development in Chilliwack. It has also built a number of Vancouver residential houses that were constructed in their factory through a panelized method.


Gord Rattray, executive director of Manufactured Housing Association of B.C., says modular housing is the way of the future. The value of factory-built building production in Canada was slightly over $1.6 billion in 2016, up about 3.5 per cent from 2015 and above the five-year average, according to the Canadian Home Builders Association Modular Construction Council 2016 Economics Report (the latest data available).


“Looking forward, we’re looking at densification, including modular laneway housing. That, and multi-storey developments, are the evolving trends today,” said Rattray. “I believe modular homes over the next 20 years will increase because they have a dedicated workforce, they’re built in plants, and the quality is always improving.”


Modular homes are ideal for Vancouver because it’s a fast and effective construction method with minimal impact on neighbours, says Paul Binotto, president of My Lane Home.


“Most cities in the Lower Mainland are looking to increase density,” he said. “Factory-built homes allow us to help that goal while not putting additional stress on infrastructure or neighbourhoods. We are trying to minimize disruption to communities and the homeowner gets a great, beautiful home.”


Demand is growing in B.C. to the point where businesses serving the market facing hiring sprees as they scramble to keep up with demand.


Moduline, one of the largest builders in B.C., is continually adding to its staff at its Penticton factory, now at nearly 300 employees. The company also has a plant in Medicine Hat, Alta.


“The greatest advantage to modular houses is they will be built on time and on budget. A house will be finished in six to eight weeks from the time it starts,” said sales manager Walter Fontinha. “This is one of the reasons the sector has been growing. Another is because of changes to the look of the exterior of the home; we have had to adapt to build what people are looking for in terms of esthetics.”


A growing number of modular home companies are catering to the high-end market by creating energy-efficient houses with slick designs. One example is Karoleena Homes, owned by Kamloops-based Horizon North.


On the other hand, Horizon North is also involved in a number of affordable housing projects, including with the City of Vancouver. The B.C. government announced it will invest more than $6.6 billion over 10 years on affordable housing, and modular construction serves as a means to build it quickly.


Horizon North currently employs 500 throughout B.C., 350 of which are directly involved in modular. It recently acquired Aldergrove-based Shelter Modular and has immediate plans to increase its workforce by a further 20 percent.


“We are seeing broad growth in demand in the Lower Mainland as well as across the province of British Columbia in general,” said Rod Graham, president and CEO of Horizon North. “The market sees that you can get a higher quality product faster and they want to be a part of the innovation of modular construction.”


Another major B.C. player is Metric Modular, which also specializes in multi-storey modular construction including commercial buildings and multi-family housing. It’s currently working on a 220-bed student housing facility for Trinity Western University in Langley, which is being built in a factory in Chilliwack.


“We are growing, and we are currently working on some exciting projects,” said Stephen Branch, president of Metric Modular, which has a second B.C. plant in Penticton. “We try to hire seven to 10 people each month for each facility. We now have more than 250 and are constantly adding.


“Communities, industry partners and housing societies are starting to pay attention to modular construction and they are realizing it is a viable alternative to address the lack of affordable housing in the province,” said Branch.

The time of year plays a big part of your home buying options, regardless of the particular housing market where you want to live. For many prospective buyers, looking for a home this is the best part of the process. For others, it’s the most frustrating.
 
Real estate is a cyclical industry, and when looking for a home, you should be aware of where your timeline falls in that cycle. Once you have your mortgage pre-approval in hand, you have a few months of flexibility, but depending on market forces, that flexibility may or may not work in your favour.
 
If you’re looking in a market that’s moving very quickly, you might not have the luxury of waiting until your ideal property comes on the market at the ideal time. It’s often the wisest move to just start looking at everything available in your price range and see if you can work with whatever you find. In this scenario, the time of year matters less to you, because prices are typically high, the number of homes on the market is generally low, and a combination of these two factors leads to a lot of competition between people looking for homes – investors and primary homebuyers alike.
 
If your local housing market is much more balanced, however, then time may be on your side. There are natural highs and lows based on seasonal factors, and pros and cons to buying in each period.
 
Based on actual data from the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) compiled from 2007-2016 (as opposed to adjusted data, which employs a statistical technique that attempts to measure and remove the influences of predictable seasonal patterns), the highest number of residential listings occur in May 2016 with an average of 94,746. The lowest number of residential listings tend to be in December, with 30,870. It should come as no surprise that the months with the highest number of sales follows the month with the highest number of listings, and the month with the lowest number of sales corresponds with the lowest number of listings. May and June tend to have the highest number of sales, with 53,132 and 50,742, respectively, and December typically has the lowest number of sales each year, at 23,458.
 
 
 

 
Regardless of the kind of housing market you’re buying – or selling – in, spring is the most popular time for housing activity. It’s almost as if everyone stops hibernating for the winter and welcomes the spring thaw. It’s hard to know what comes first, the sellers who put their homes on the market in anticipation of the buyers, or the throngs of buyers who are ready to flood open houses. Homes tend to present better in the spring than in other times of year, and more people put their homes on the market to sell when it looks its best. Either way, there’s much more activity on the market, resulting in higher home sales overall.
 
Springtime doesn’t come without its own drawbacks. Although buyers have a greater choice of homes on the market in the spring, and choice typically tends to be a good thing, there are also more people looking. More people looking at available homes means increased competition, and you might end up paying more than you would have paid if you’d bought the home at other times of the year.

Summer tends to be a bit slower in terms of housing market activity because people – buyers and sellers are alike – are often away on vacations or otherwise enjoying the warm weather. But let’s not overlook the importance of the school cycle when it comes to home prices, either. No one wants to disrupt the family routine in the middle of the school year, especially if changing schools is necessary and requires children to leave familiar teachers and friends. In that respect, summer is a great time to move.

There is a second wave of home buying activity in the fall. People are getting back into the swing of things after the dog days of summer and are hoping to get settled into a new home before the weather changes. After all, no one wants to deal with a moving truck and lugging boxes in and out of a house in three feet of snow.
 
Winter brings the end-of-year holiday season, which is stressful enough for many people without having to worry about preparing a house for sale or getting financing together. And after the holidays, people tend to be a little less willing to spend even more money, not to mention that moving during a Canadian winter is a gamble for decent weather at best and a blizzardy nightmare at worst. On the other hand, people knowing that spring and fall tend to be the best times to sell their homes mean that they may be particularly motivated to sell for whatever reason.
 
In a tight real estate market such as Toronto, closing on a home during an unpopular season can save you tens of thousands of dollars. Earlier this year, TheRedPin took a six-year analysis of more than 530,000 home sales in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and found that the sale price was $43,000 less in January than at any other time of year. Although there aren’t as many listings in the winter months as there are at other times of the year, there are also fewer prospective buyers looking at the properties that are available – and any agent will tell you that as a buyer, you automatically have the benefit of there being less competition to buy a home that you want. You have more flexibility when it comes to the time you need to make a decision, and the potential to bargain harder with the seller because there could be fewer offers on the table.
 
TheRedPin found that in the GTA, homes sold 30 per cent slower than they did during the spring season, and because homes stay on the market longer, sellers are more highly motivated. People receive job transfers at less than ideal times, not to mention experience unfortunate incidents like death and illness that may cause them to need to sell their house.  
 
While the savings in cost can be attributed to Toronto’s particular housing market and the likelihood that many homes are sold over their asking price during the busier times of the year, the concept of supply and demand plays out in housing markets across the country: “With fewer buyers and less competition, homes in January take longer to sell (an average of 7 days longer versus the calendar year average) and buyers hold the power – driving down prices,” TheRedPin concluded.
 
In short, if you’re a seller, avoid putting your home up for sale in the winter. If you’re a buyer who’s flexible and you don’t have a specific time frame, think about house-hunting outside of the spring frenzy, and get your mortgage preapproval during the late summer, when you can take advantage of both the fall and winter markets. You could save a lot of stress and money during the process.
 
If you are on a set timeline, however, don’t despair. There are plenty of tips and techniques that real estate professionals use to make sure that you pay fair market value and that you’re in the best possible position to get the home that you want – regardless of the time of year.

Are you looking to invest in property? If you like, we can get one of our mortgage experts to tell you exactly how much you can afford to borrow, which is the best mortgage for you or how much they could save you right now if you have an existing mortgage.

VANCOUVER—In the past six months, realtors working across Metro Vancouver say they’ve seen market conditions go from highly competitive multiple offers and condo pre-sale lineups, to falling prices and developers offering up to $100,000 “bonuses” in an attempt to lure buyers.


The correction is taking some time to work through the market, but the realtors pinpoint April as the month when conditions began to change. While the single family detached market has been softening for some time — ever since the previous B.C. government introduced a foreign buyer tax in the summer of 2016 — the latest change has affected condos and condo pre-sales, from the very high-end in downtown Vancouver, to mid-range and entry-level product in the suburbs.

 


Ian Watt, a realtor with Sothebys, focuses on high-end condos in downtown Vancouver, Yaletown and Coal Harbour. He pegs the price correction in that market at 10 to 15 per cent over the past six months, with very little movement in the highest-priced condos. Steve Saretsky, a realtor with Sutton Group West Coast, estimates Vancouver condo prices have declined four to five per cent since the peak of the market in January 2018.


Statistics from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver show that Vancouver condo prices have declined 0.3 per cent over the past three months.


“In June and July there has been one sale of a unit above $3.5 million, which is unheard of,” Watt said.


“Usually you’d have five to 10 sales a month, but we’ve only had one in the last six weeks. Everything above $2 million is pretty much dead; anything related to international money is gone right now.”


Prices have also declined for downtown condos in the $600,000 to $700,000 range, Watt said.


In relatively affordable Langley and Abbotsford, where a two-bedroom, two-bathroom townhome goes for between $300,000 and $400,000, it’s a similar story: seven or eight weeks ago, sellers would receive multiple offers. Properties are now sitting on the market for longer, said Tim Sawatzky, a realtor with 2 Percent Realty Valley.


Where it was once common to see lineups to buy condo pre-sales contracts, Sawatzky said developers in Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford are now offering a variety of incentives, such as a $20,000 “furnishing package,” or between $20,000 and $40,000 off the closing price when the building is completed. (When buyers purchase a pre-sale condo contract, they typically pay five to 15 per cent of the price up front and then pay the full amount after the building is completed.)


A client recently sent Saretsky a brochure offering $100,000 off the “developer’s price” at 3755 Chatham, a lowrise condo building planned for Richmond’s Steveston neighbourhood.


In New Westminster, which had a rapid run-up in condo prices in 2017, things have similarly cooled, said Geoff McLennan, a realtor with Re/Max Advantage. It’s meant a less stressful experience for buyers, who are no longer having to compete with many other buyers and make rapid offers without having the time to fully research the property or place conditions on the sale.


At the high end of the market, Watt said the B.C. government’s increased foreign buyer tax, from 15 to 20 per cent, and the Chinese government’s stricter controls on money transfer out of the country, have been factors in that part of the slowdown.


But the realtors peg new federal stress test rules as the main reason the mid-range market has cooled. The tighter restrictions came into effect in January 2018 and mean that even buyers who have a 20 per cent down payment must also meet an additional test to ensure they can afford their mortgage if interest rates rise.


Watt and McLennan say what they’re seeing is not a collapse, but a return to more normal real estate conditions in what’s been a highly overvalued market.

“My advice to sellers is, it’s not 2017 anymore,” Watt said. “It’s back to reality.”


But as inventory continues to build because of the dramatic drop in sales, a much bigger price correction could be on the way, Saretsky warned.


“Prices are always sticky on the way down,” he said. “Fifty per cent of listings today are recycled,” meaning that the property has been listed, removed, and re-listed, usually with a change in price. “It’s almost like price discovery: what is my home worth.”
