I need information about buying property in BC for US citizens

Can you direct me to information about buying residential or commercial property in British Columbia for US citizens that is up to date? I know that the laws about that have changed recently because of a real estate bubble caused by foreign investment, and most information I've found online is dated.

This page has up-to-date info about what is often referred to as the "Foreign Buyer's Tax."

There's also the Vacancy Tax which is not trivial - something on the order of $10k on a $1m property . You could also look into buying in Point Roberts, which is U.S. territory in the Greater Vancouver area. PM if you want a realtor referral.
