Many of my clients are from New York. The costs in NC are minimal compared to NY. You pay a recording fee at the Courthouse to record the deed, $100-$200 depending on county and purchase price. You probably want a Title Search and Title Insurance, and Attorney fee-- total about $800? Generally the agents fees are included in the Seller's price, so the Buyer doesn't generally pay for that. Then, depends on time of year if the taxes have been paid or not paid, but the seller is responsible for the part of the year that they owned it-- but taxes are WAY WAY WAY cheaper here-- based on City/County-- but nowhere near NY.
Please give me a BEST ANSWER or THUMBS UP if this answered your question.
You really need to sit down with a Realtor to work with you as a Buyer's Agent. He/she will be able to review your purchase requirements and give you an idea of what to expect for closing costs.
