frequently asked questions

How long does it take to buy/sell a home?
There is a range of many different factors at play when buying and selling a home. The number of people and professionals involved throughout the entire process means there is a huge variation. The average timeline from listing to completion is 5-6 months.
How much do I have to pay an agent to help me buy/sell a home? What other fees am I obligated to?
Buyers and Sellers are responsible for paying for different fees. Standard practice is that the Seller pays the real estate commission of both the listing agent and buyer’s agent. A common commission is 6% of the purchase price of the property. A Seller can negotiate the terms of the listing agreement. Some agents have more flexibility than others. The fee is paid at closing by the Seller unless other arrangements have been made.

Seller’s Closing Costs

  • Commission – 6% of sales price
  • Mortgage Payoff – Subject to loan balance
  • Doc Stamp Tax – $7.00 per $1,000
  • Taxes Prorated – Current year taxes are prorated at closing
  • Title Abstract – $175 – $250
  • Municipal Lien and Tax Search – $250 – $450
  • Document Preparation – $250 – $350
  • Deed and/or Recording Fees – $10.00 for first page; $8.50 for each additional page
  • Additional costs to be determined by the Sales and Agreement Contract:

Buyer’s Closing Costs

  • Property Survey (if the seller does not have an updated survey) – $300 – $450
  • Property Inspection – $350 – $800
  • Professional Appraisal – $300 – $500
  • Mortgage Loan Fee – Contingent on loan amount
  • Mortgage Recording Fee – $10.00 for first page; $8.50 for each additional page

  • Intangible Taxes – $2.00 per $1,000 of mortgage amount
  • Settlement and Closing Fees – $350 – $550
Should I sell my current home before purchasing a new one?
Juggling the sale of one home while searching for another can be tricky. It is important to have a game plan – whether it is moving into an apartment temporarily and storing your personal items in a storage facility or negotiating a lease back with buyers. Another option is to qualify for two mortgages until further financial payoffs can be made on a property.
Is a home inspection necessary?
A home inspection is an all-encompassing examination of the current condition of a property. Although this is a personal choice, a home inspection is actually an inexpensive way to find out the overall condition of the property. A good home inspector will help educate a Buyer on the property they are about to acquire. Likewise, a Seller of a home may also request a home inspection before the home is put on the market. This may assist Seller in making any corrections to the property prior to being listed.
