What are Closing Costs? Canadian Real Estate Questions Answered.

What are Closing Costs? Canadian Real Estate Questions Answered.

What are the closing costs associated with a Canadian real estate transaction, how much are they and who pays? If I offer my agent a fruit cake, will they “take care of it” for me? First of all — fruit cake?!? When it comes to baked goods we recommend brownies, and when it comes to buying or selling a home, make sure you're conscious of all the closing costs that you’ll be accountable for.

Not sure what closing costs are? That’s okay.  It can be challenging to keep up with everything that’s involved in buying or selling a home. From selling costs such as property staging and the listing agent’s commission fee, to buying costs like land transfer tax, mortgage loan insurance, title insurance and the home inspection fee, there’s a lot to budget for.


You may not know everything about buying or selling Canadian real estate, and why would you? At RE/MAX Canada, that’s our job, and we just happen to have 50 years’ of experience.
