When selling and buying do I pay closing costs on both?

Selling one house and buying a new one... do I pay closing costs on both homes? Do I pay different closing costs for each home? How are they different?

Both buyers and sellers have closing costs however, it is totally negotiable who pays the fees. A good REALTOR can guide you through how to negotiate who will pay fees in your contract.

When selling your home you pay realtor commissions but when you purchase a home you do not. You have closing costs as far as mortgage closing costs, attorney fee, title, etc when you purchase.

Generally yes, you will have closing cost when selling and different closing costs when purchasing. It will depend on how the contract is negotiated in each case, though often when selling you will pay for realtor fees, title insurance, transfer tax, and potentially other fees specific to the contract or state. When purchasing you will often pay for lender origination fees, transfer tax, escrow fees or attorney fees and potentially other fees specific to the contract or state.

  • If I sell my home, will my boyfriend receive part of the sale?

    I wanted some clarification before deciding to put my home on the market. My boyfriend and I purchased a home together several years ago. We split up so he signed a quitclaim deed but is obviously still on the loan. If I want to sell my home that I have been making payments on myself for the last 8 years. Does he need to sign anything and would he be entitled to any of the sale money?
