Below are a number of costs usually associated with a home sale. When selling your home, review the list with your REALTOR® to determine which costs apply.
Property Costs. Property costs include any maintenance, renovations, or “staging” you may need to make to your home before it’s ready to be put on the market.
Legal Costs. Real estate transactions can be complex and difficult to navigate without legal assistance. A real estate attorney can walk a home seller through the legal process for the transfer of ownership of property.
Status Certificate. Applicable to condominium properties only, the Seller is usually required to provide a Status Certificate to the buyers.
Mortgage Financing Costs. Mortgage financing costs can include paying the balance of the mortgage, the interest since last payment, prepaid penalties, and lender discharge fees.
Real Estate Commission.
Utility Disconnection Costs. Some utility companies charge a fee to disconnect service.
Moving Costs. Costs associated with moving include truck rental, hiring of movers, moving supplies, and any storage fees.
