Besides the costs related to making repairs and improving the overall appearance of the home, as the seller you will also need to pay the following:
-A real estate commission, if you use an agency to sell.
-Advertising costs, marketing materials, and other fees if you sell the home yourself.
-Attorney, closing, or other professional fees.
-Excise tax for the sale.
-Prorated costs for your share of annual expenses, such as property taxes, homeowner association fees, and fuel tank rentals.
-Any other fees normally paid by sellers in your area, including points, survey, and appraisal fees.
To get a better handle on all costs, ask a REALTOR®. Agents deal with this information daily and can give you a pretty good estimate of the closing costs you can expect to pay.
