What fees are included when selling a house?

The fees when selling a house depend on where your property is located and consists of several items. Some of these include escrow fees, title fees, real estate commissions, real estate transfer taxes, and miscellaneous fees. Many of the fees for selling are calculated as a percentage of the sale price. Below is an outline of the items that are factored into calculating your estimated proceeds from the sale of your home.

Real Estate Agent Commission

The seller pays the commission to their listing agent and the buyer's agent. The total amount is usually split evenly between both agents.

Escrow Fees

The escrow company is the neutral third party in a real estate transaction. They handle the exchange of money and any necessary documents related to the transaction. The costs charged to the seller are the fees for the services provided by the escrow company.

Misc Fees

These fees can include a recording fee, a notary fee, inspection fees, homeowners association fees (if you have a HOA), and any other fees that you might be required to pay.

Title Insurance

Title insurance is not required, but it's included in almost all real estate transactions. This policy, known as an "Owner's Policy", is usually paid for by the seller and protects the buyer from any liens and any competing claims of someone else saying they have an ownership interest after the sale closes (this also protects the seller). If the buyer is getting financing, then their lender will require them to purchase a different policy. This is known as a "Lender's Policy", which protects the lender from the same circumstances as the Owner's policy.

Real Estate Transfer Tax

Depending on the city and county you're located in, you may have a property transfer tax that you need to pay. Most counties have a transfer tax, which is paid by the seller, but not all cities have a real estate city transfer tax.
