    I agree with annual review of our Property transfer tax benefitting FTHB. In today's market, the average home in the lower mainland is way higher than $500K therefore you are really putting a strain on FTHB most especially people who are putting less than 20% down. FTHB putting less than 20% qualifies for lesser mortgage now with the new 'stress test' guidelines, paying higher premiums and still have to pay property transfer tax!
