Aman Brah’s Community Garage Sale 2019!
Every Summer, residents prep their garages and gather their used items to host a garage sale or yard sale and make some extra cash! Now, most homeowners who have ever hosted a Garage Sale will tell you the hardest part is getting exposure. You may have some great items for sale but if your home doesn’t get enough traffic it won’t sell (sounds a bit like the real estate industry!) Well that’s where the Aman Brah Community Garage Sale comes in! It’s a massive garage sale in Riverwood, Birchland Manor, Harbour Place & Harbour Chines hosted by homeowners looking to clear out some of their belongings.
Homes that want to participate RSVP to me and I create maps with the locations of homes and their full address. I take care of all the advertising for the event - which includes placing ads in newspapers, online marketing, on Social Media and on my website. Then, on the morning of the Garage Sale, I put directional arrows throughout the neighbourhoods drawing people to your house.
The heart of a community can be measured by the involvement of its residents. So I think its awesome that Riverwood, Birchland Manor, Harbour Place & Harbour Chines residents can unite through local events, fundraisers, and a community garage sale!
To participate, Riverwood, Birchland Manor, Harbour Place & Harbour Chines residents simply plan a garage sale at their home on September 14 from at least 9 am to 1 pm, and register online at Aman Brah's Community Garage Sale.
Participants who register by the deadline of September 4, 2019 will get free advertising for their sale prior to the event, as well as on the garage sale webpage and map. Email me at info@AmanBrah.com for more information.

Speculation and Vacancy Tax


The Speculation and Vacancy Tax (SVT) was introduced by the NDP Government of British Columbia in 2018. This Tax is different from the empty homes tax in the City of Vancouver.
The tax targets those, Foreign and Canadians, who own residential property in select area's of British Columbia. The area's include:
Following are the designated taxable regions, including maps for each region. The maps are for your convenience only. Please refer to the legislation for details.
  • Municipalities within the Capital Regional District. This excludes Salt Spring Island, Juan de Fuca Electoral Area, and the Southern Gulf Islands
  • Municipalities within the Metro Vancouver Regional District, excluding Bowen Island, the Village of Lions Bay and Electoral Area A, but including UBC and the University Endowment Lands
  • The City of Abbotsford
  • The District of Mission
  • The City of Chilliwack
  • The City of Kelowna 
  • The City of West Kelowna
  • The City of Nanaimo
  • The District of Lantzville
  • Reserve lands, treaty lands and lands of self-governing Indigenous Nations are not part of the taxable regions.
Islands that are accessible only by air or water are not part of the taxable regions.

Some residential properties are excluded from the speculation and vacancy tax even though they are located within a taxable region. These include residential properties owned by:
  • An Indigenous Nation
  • Municipalities, regional districts, governments and other public bodies
  • Registered charities
  • Housing co-ops
  • Certain not-for-profit organizations
The SVT rate varies depending on the owner’s tax residency. In addition, the tax rate varies based on whether the owner is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, or a satellite family.

For 2018, the tax rate is:
  • 0.5% of the property’s assessed value for all properties subject to the tax
For 2019 and subsequent years, the tax rate is:
  • 2% for foreign owners and satellite families
  • 0.5% for Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada who are not members of a satellite family
The speculation and vacancy tax applies based on ownership as of December 31 each year.

A speculation and vacancy tax year is the same as a calendar year. Tax levied on December 31 is due the following July. For example, for a property owned as of December 31, 2018, the 2018 tax rate of 0.5% applies and the tax is due on July 2, 2019.
All those who own residential property will receive a letter in the mail by the end of February with instructions on how to complete a declaration and register an exemption online. To qualify, this application must be completed by March 31, 2019. The opt-out process will become an annual event for property owners under the new speculation tax rules.

Monetary Policy & Mortgage Rate Forecast

The Bank of Canada raised its target for the overnight rate by 25 basis points to 1.75 per cent this morning. With this decision, the Bank noted that the overnight rate will need to rise to a neutral stance to achieve its 2 per cent inflation target.
The Bank of Canada is determined to finally “normalize” it's monetary policy after nearly a decade of low interest rates with the goal of returning the overnight rate to its estimated equilibrium or “neutral” level of between 3 and 3.5 per cent. Policymakers have even discussed dropping their gradual approach, replacing the standard 25 basis point increment rate increases with more accelerated interest rate increases.
The Bank will meet again in December and we expect policymakers will maintain the current overnight rate at this meeting before raising it to 2 per cent in January 2019. As the Bank continues to tighten monetary policy, Canadian mortgage rates are expected to rise, resulting in a 6 per cent qualifying rate by the end of 2019.
