First of all, let’s define “closing costs” as it pertains to buying and selling real estate in Vancouver.

Agent Fees

Whether your buying or selling a home, your real estate agent will get paid once the sale completes. This comes out of the proceeds of the sale on the sellers side. It is a small price to pay for all the variables involved. So decide accordingly.

Legal Fees

Roughly $1200 for each the Buyer and Seller in legal fees will also be part of the process. This is due to registration transfer of title.

Banking Fees

Unless your condo is paid in full, there are usually bank charges involved in your closing fees. Costs such as: a discharge fee or prepayment charges on your mortgage are most common. Alternately, if you are buying another piece of property and simply transferring your mortgage, your mortgage broker may wave this fee.
