Developer Clipper Equity covered closing costs for purchasers who signed contracts in the 27-story, 250-unit building last month. Ilan Bracha, a broker with Prudential Douglas Elliman, the exclusive marketing and sales firm, said that removing the closing costs enhanced the listings’ values. The closing costs for BellTel residences under $1 million are around 5 percent of the overall purchase price, according to a statement from the developer. Contact:
