Anxious About Closing Costs?
Don’t be! The key to reducing anxiety is communication and no surprises. While we can’t guarantee there will never be a surprise along the way, we will communicate with you every step of the way. As for the closing costs, the closing company will provide us with a detailed breakdown of the closing costs 3 days prior to closing.
However we know that for a successful closing experience, you need to know what those closing costs are going to be much earlier in the process – even before an offer is made.
Sellers typically pay 1-3% of the home’s price, plus the real estate agent commissions. Here are the closing costs that sellers are typically responsible for:
- A closing fee, paid to the title company or attorney’s office where everyone meets to close on the home.
- Taxes on the home sale.
- A fee for an attorney, if you have one.
- A fee for transferring the title to the new owner.
- Real Estate Agent commissions, which average 6% of the sale price.
Making Sure Your Move Goes Smoothly
There are few things we enjoy more than telling a client, “Your house is sold.” That means we have found them a qualified buyer, got them the price they wanted, and negotiated a great deal.
That doesn’t mean our work is finished. Far from it.
As your real estate team, we’ll work closely with you to ensure the deal is finalized and that your move goes smoothly.
We’ll take care of the details. For example, if there are any conditions on the offer to buy your property, such as “passing a home inspection”, we’ll coordinate with you and the buyer’s agent to ensure that the condition is satisfied and the deal closes.
We’ll also be there for you, as your real estate experts, up to the day you move – and beyond. We provide you with the names of recommended lawyers, contractors, movers, etc. from our network of reputable professionals and companies. We’ll also clearly explain what to expect leading up to closing day and give you advice as to how to prepare.
Our goal is simple: To make your house sale and move a positive experience.
