To avoid any financial surprises, you’ll want to take a closer look at the costs associated with selling a house.
Here are some typical costs sellers need to be aware of and some financial tools that can help you navigate the home selling process easily and successfully.
Selling your house doesn’t mean you’ll end up putting all of that in your pocket. The costs to sell a house could be as much as 10% of the sale price. That means if you sell your house for $300,000, you could be paying as much as $30,000 for the sale.
Here are some common costs home sellers encounter that make up that 10% of the sale price:
If you’re struggling to sell your house, there a few extra costs you can take on to sweeten the deal for the buyer.
Another important factor that can help sell your house more quickly is home staging. Staging your home is a way to make your home appealing to potential buyers. This process can cost as much as $2,400 for a 2,000 square foot home, but can greatly increase the overall value of your home.
Staging costs can depend on contract terms, photography, the size of the home and additional props that may be needed. The more expensive the home, the more expensive the staging costs.
