STEP 5 – ESTIMATE YOUR COSTS TO SELL

  • Real estate agent commission (if you use an Agent to sell your property)
  • Advertising costs, signs, other fees (if you plan to sell by owner)
  • Lawyer fees and disbursements (typical disbursements include: land transfer taxes, title insurance, courier fees, banking charges, government registration fees, etc.)
  • Prorated costs for your share of annual expenses, such as property taxes, home owner association fees, fuel tank rentals, etc. (such are commonly referred to as “adjustments”)
  • Any other fees typically paid by the seller in your area (surveys, inspections, etc.)
  • Any costs associated with maintenance and preparing your home for sale.
