Good to know


A mortgage broker is paid by the lender, not by you. Choose to use a broker and gain access to more lenders compared to working with your bank.


As a first-time home buyer, you’re exempt from the B.C. Property Transfer Tax for homes up to $500,000. You receive a partial discount for homes valued between $500,000 and $524,000.


You can only purchase a home with a gifted down payment if it’s from a direct family member.
