Your SoMa / South Beach Super Broker
I know of a BRAND NEW smaller contemporary condo complex in Walnut Creek near BART. A lot of people do not know about it since they do not advertise.
The builder is in financial trouble and pretty much giving these away at $499,000. Great Value. There are about 5 units left.
Send me your email and I wil send you the listing info.
Regarding closing fees, etc., I tell my clients to estimate about 1-2% of the purchase price for closing costs. The fees vary based on the timing of the sale -- e.g., pro rated property tax bill. The other costs, such as lender/bank fees, etc can vary as well.
That gives you a sense of the fees, but you will get a clearer estimate closer to the time that you would close escrow on a particular property. That closing statement will provide you with more exact numbers.
I hope that helps you to some extent to understand how much to estimate on associated closing costs.
