Buying New Construction in Nanaimo

There seems to be a split between those who would never buy an older home, and those who would never buy a newer one. (I suppose there's a third category who doesn't care.)

The first group dislikes the risks associated with older homes that may have defects from the aging process, or outdated standards of wiring, etc. The second group feels that newer homes aren't built as solidly, or that they lack character.

But lack of character in new construction was a thing of the 1970s-2000s. Increasingly, new developments in Nanaimo are being built with a lot more attention to curb appeal and interior finishes. And the quality of construction varies widely, with many new homes built as solidly as possible – not with “cardboard and staple guns” as I have heard people say.

And with the historically low levels of inventory in Nanaimo, developers are hammering out as many new subdivisions as possible to suit demand. Buyers have so many options for buying new homes in Nanaimo right now!

Property Transfer Tax Exemption

In February of 2016, the BC government introduced an exemption of the property transfer tax for newly built homes purchased for less than $750,000. For a $500,000 home, this exemption is worth $8,000 to the buyer!

GST Charged for New Homes

However, note that new homes are subject to GST charges of 5%.

There's a "New Housing Rebate" that returns up to 36% of the GST - if you purchased from a builder and use the home as your primary residence, and if the purchase price was $450k or less.

Warranties on New Homes

Developers are required to get third-party home warranty insurance - this protects buyers from predatory development practices! Here is the minimum level of coverage that the home warranty insurance is required to provide (there are exceptions to these rules; always get confirmation from a professional):

  • 2 years' coverage on labour and materials
  • 5 years on building envelope
  • 10 years on home's structure
