We asked and you answered: In what is likely the most comprehensive survey of agent opinion on the matter, the results are in on whether or not the industry is in favour of a foreign sales tax in Toronto

    If cdn and provincial governments had balanced budgets and responsible spending we wouldn't need to print extra 200 billion dollars of money this year which with multiplier effect created 500 billion $ in new inflation - which fuels home prices -

    Their solution is raise taxes eg land transfer - empty house tax - foreign buyer tax development fee increases - permit fee increases list goes on - all which makes new homes more expensive - - so of course that sucks up the resale prices - it's hard to sell rescaled above the replacement cost of building new but when that number goes up buyers will pay more for resale if cost remains under buying new
