Land Transfer Tax is a significant closing cost you will have to take into consideration when buying a new home.landtransfertax

Unless you live in Alberta, Saskatchewan, or rural Nova Scotia, land transfer taxes (or property purchase tax) are a basic fact of life. These taxes, levied on properties that are changing hands, are the responsibility of the purchaser. Depending on where you live, taxes can range from a half a per cent to two per cent of the total value of the property.

Many provinces have multi-tiered taxation systems that can prove complicated. If you purchase a property for $260,000 in Ontario, for example, .5 per cent is charged on the first $55,000, 1 per cent is charged on $55,000 – $250,000, while the $250,000 – $400,000 range is taxed at 1.5 per cent. Your total tax bill? $2,375.00.

    "We were introduce to Jethro through a friend who had used his services, so he came highly recommended. From when we first met him, the overall experience has been fantastic.

    We have used Jethro’s services twice. I had first sold my condo through Jethro just before buying a house with my husband. He helped stage it and gave us coaching on how to present it better so that it would sell above asking (which it did!).
