Who Makes More Money on Real Estate Than Developers?

Who makes more money on Real Estate than developers?

We have all heard how developers are greedy, but ever wonder who makes the most money on a real estate development?  Local, provincial and federal governments, that’s who!

According to CMHC, fees and charges account for 20% of the price of a new condo apartment.  Want proof?  Check out CMHC confirms government costs raise new home prices – Western Investor

The report further states that a typical developer’s profit on a new condo project is estimated at between 10% and 15%.

It seems to me that if the various governments want to really improve affordability they could take a lower cut.  The federal government could raise the GST thresholds, or eliminate them for first-time buyers.  The provincial government could raise the threshold for first-time buyers to $750,000, matching the threshold for PTT exemption on new construction, and local governments could give property tax relief for first-time buyers.

Just saying!

Enjoy the rest of summer, thanks as always for the support.
