with Bill 28 when Vancouver real estate was out of control with foreign buyers. We have to do something. I get called all the time to see if I want to sell my house for cash and when I say no they ask if I have other houses I want to sell. I think I stopped the calls by expressing my opinion of what they are doing.

The Act has four parts:

Vacancy tax: Amendments to the Vancouver Charter to enable the City of Vancouver to impose a municipal vacancy tax on vacant residential property
Foreign-buyers tax: Amendments to the Property Transfer Tax Act, imposing an additional property transfer tax of 20% on all residential property purchased by foreign buyers
Amendments to the Real Estate Services Act discontinuing industry self-regulation of the real estate industry
Creating a new Housing Priority Initiatives special account to fund initiatives in respect to housing, rental, access, and support programs with the new tax revenues resulting from this law.[1]
