How Much Does it Cost to Sell Your Home?



Seller closing costs

  • Escrow fees, which are usually split 50/50 by buyer and seller
  • Title insurance policy
  • Property tax, which is prorated as of the date of closing
  • Mortgage payoff

Net Proceeds Estimate

Here is an example of a Net Proceeds Estimate. The Net Proceeds Estimate is an estimate of how much money you will walk away from the closing table with in the sale of a $500,000 home in Thurston County. It shows the estimated costs you can expect to pay.

This example does not include a mortgage amount. If there was a mortgage on the property, we would include the mortgage payoff. For example, if this property had a $250,000 outstanding mortgage balance, we would subtract that from $461,469.45 to arrive at an estimated net proceeds of $211,469.45.
