Looking Forward to Housing Affordability

Published Sep 27, 2017

iStock-469758358A home is an important part of the enviable quality of life many British Columbians seek. REALTORS® hear this every day from their clients all around the province.

BCREA’s pleased that the new provincial government has identified housing affordability as an important concern, and the Association offers recommendations to ensure British Columbians have access to safe and appropriate housing options.

BCREA’s five-pillar approach includes timely recommendations to:

  • adjust the Property Transfer Tax,
  • assist consumers with housing costs,
  • encourage the creation of more rental housing,
  • densify urban areas, and
  • promote best practices among local governments.

The Association advocates for these recommendations with all elected officials, including through the 2018 Budget Consultations.
