Buying New Construction in Nanaimo

There's a common misconception that newly-built homes are lacking in character. A buyer with a taste for pre-1950s craftsmanship would traditionally avoid new developments. But that's changing. Many new projects in Nanaimo are being built with high attention to curb appeal and interior finishes.

With historically low levels of inventory vs. demand in the current market, it's a great climate for numerous developers - and they are hammering out as many new subdivisions and condo buildings as possible. The result is that a lot of different kinds of building are available - but never for very long. Buyers must be decisive in this market or a building/development will suddenly be sold out, with nothing similar on the horizon!

Taxes on New Homes in Nanaimo

Property Transfer Tax Exemption

For "used" homes, there is a provincial property transfer tax (PTT) of several thousand dollars. But for newly built homes, the BC government offers a full exemption to the property transfer tax (only for homes purchased at less than $750,000). For a $500,000 home, this exemption is worth $8,000 to the buyer. 

GST Charged for New Homes

While it's nice to avoid the property transfer tax, new homes are subject to a HIGHER tax rate because GST is payable - at 5%. This works out to much more than the PTT ($25,000 on a $500,000 home).

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

Government regulations demand that developers must purchase third-party home warranty insurance to provide to the buyer along with the home. Naturally, this is one reason why new-construction properties cost more than older homes. Here is the minimum level of coverage that the home warranty insurance is required to provide:

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