HST in B.C, How it will affect your Condo Sale in Crosstown Vancouver

So I have been getting asked by a number of account managers from RBC what the details behind the new HST are in B.C & how it is going to affect Buyers & Sellers?

For Sellers: 
After July 1 2010 when selling your product you are applicable to pay HST(12%) in place of GST(5%) ontop of Real Estate Commissions payed out to the Realtors for the sale of the property.

For Buyers:
After July 1 2010 Buying in new Construction you will be applicable to now paying HST(12%) in place of GST(5%). If you have purchased in new construction before July 1 2010 & the project completes after July 1 2010 you are Grandfathered and will not be eligible to pay HST(12%) in this situation, only GST(5%). 

If you are buying used product before or after July 1 2010 you are not applicable to HST(12%) or GST(5%).

This is the core of it. There is also a very good article giving all of the detail to date (as not everything is in stone yet) attached to the link below:
