Additional Closing Costs for Dewees

There are some Dewees Island closing costs that are unique to the island. The Dewees Island Environmental Program is funded by a percentage of sales of lots and homes on the island.  A total of 1.5% of each transaction goes to the island’s environmental fund, with half of that (.75%) paid by the seller and half by the buyer.

That supports our landings building exhibits, our environmental staff, our habitat restoration programs, and other costs allocated to the Dewees Island Environmental program.  This special Dewees island closing cost is split, per our covenants, evenly between the buyer and the seller; so each of those pay 0.75% of the total closing costs to the Dewees Island Environmental Program.
