Closing Costs

Seller’s Guide

Closing and Repair Costs

When selling a property it’s important to take into account the closing costs you will be responsible for. These can include Real Estate Broker commissions, mortgage payoff statements, transfer taxes, oil and propane payouts, as well as costs that may arise due to the repair requests associated with the inspection of the home. Your Real Estate Attorney should be able to give you a fairly accurate estimate of your total closing costs at the time you sign the binding Contract of Sale.
