In Ontario, the real estate profession is governed by the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002, and Associated Regulations (REBBA 2002 or Act), administered by the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO). Avenue Realty Team is registered under the Act and governed by its provisions.
It is not possible to estimate exactly what closing costs will be because no two transactions are identical. Other factors, such as adjustments, will also impact the final closing costs.

A sales representative will help you plan accordingly.
