1. What Are Closing Costs?
Closing costs are an umbrella term for the entire set of legal fees and expenses due at the end of a deal. It includes everything ranging from prepaid property taxes, maintenance fees, builder adjustment costs, etc.
2. HOW MUCH ARE THE CLOSING COSTS TYPICALLY?
The closing costs associated with your real estate deed will vary as per the specific details of your real estate sale/ purchase/ lease deed. If your real estate deal is a refinancing deal, your closing costs will typically include only legal fees and disbursements. On the other hand, if you purchase a new home in Ontario, your closing costs are expected to be somewhere around 1.0% of your purchase price. However, please note that the builder's cost will vary from builder to builder. Above this, you might have to pay Land Transfer Taxes as well.
3. WHAT IS THE CAP RATE?
The CAP rate is typically the annual net rent (excluding financial costs) divided by the property's price. It can also be termed a 'rate of return.'
4. IF I AM NOT AN ONTARIO RESIDENT, CAN I STILL PURCHASE AND/OR SELL A HOME HERE?
If you are a foreigner, typically, there would not be any restrictions to your purchase of property in Ontario. The same applies to any foreigner who wishes to sell property in Ontario. When purchasing property as a non-Canadian resident, you would need to pay a 15% tax on top of the purchase price, known as Non-Resident Speculation Tax (NRST).
