As taken from a VIREB release, BC Returns To The PST On April 1, 2013
The BC Provincial Government released a timetable for the elimination of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) in an announcement from Victoria this afternoon. The statement says in part the province will return to the use of the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) on April 1, 2013. The statement outlines a series of points including:
* B.C. new housing rebate threshold will be increased to $850,000, meaning more than 90 per cent of newly built homes will now be eligible for a provincial HST rebate of up to $42,500. It is important to note that the HST does not apply to resale housing.
* B.C.’s portion of the HST will continue to apply before April 1, 2013. Purchasers will be eligible for the new higher B.C. HST new housing rebate, of up to $42,500, and builders will continue to claim input tax credits.
* B.C.’s portion of the HST will no longer apply to newly built homes where construction begins on or after April 1, 2013. Builders will once again pay seven per cent PST on their building materials. On average, about two per cent of the home’s final price will again be embedded PST.

Well, now I think I’ve heard it all. Maybe not. But getting paid to sell your home is new to me, especially when it’s the bank paying you to do it. Now I hate the term “delinquent”. unless of course you’re purposefully avoiding paying your mortgage, as people for one reason or another fall into unfortuneate circumstance landing them in financial turmoil. But, should you be behind in your mortgage payments wouldn’t it be nice for the bank to offer you money to sell than to foreclose? I think so.
According to an article in CNN Money written by Les Christie@CNNMoney today, some US banks are doing just that. People are getting paid up to $35,000 USD to sell their house before foreclosure. The idea to help people out from under their financial strain is a good one in my books. Showing some compassion (to deserving folks) and helping a home owner in a desperate situation can be a “win/win” for both parties. The homeowner can use the money to move forward, pay down other debt and regroup finances alleviating stress and giving him/her the ability to focus on moving forward with some pride. In return for the banks act of kindness, the homeowner will maintain the home during the sale process helping to yeild the maximum sale price helping the bank recoup their losses or if it all works out, break even! Win Win!
Maybe Canadian Banks together with CMHC can come up with a similar program to help those that fall into the “unfortuneate circumstance” category. If you’ve hear of this happening in Canada, let me know!
