The new BC government interest free loans program for first time buyers might help to get some more condos sold. Certainly real estate developers in this province tend to be in agreement with government policies, showing their appreciation by holding 8 of the top 10 liberal donor spots:
Eight of the 10 top donors to the B.C. Liberal party in 2016, and so far in 2017, are involved in the province’s property development and construction industries.
Combined, the eight donors contributed nearly $1.5 million of the $12.5 million collected by the Liberals during the period, an analysis by Postmedia News of the donor list released by the Liberals last week shows.
Some of the real estate development and construction sector donations came in six-figure instalments.
At least this booming real estate market is creating lots of jobs right?
Well, not as many as Quebec which created more full time jobs than any other province and accounts for 42% of national labor growth in 2016.
