Steve, Home Buyer in Miami Shores, FL

What are the standard seller closing cost fees?

Asked by Steve, Miami Shores, FL Tue Dec 18, 2012

Condo in Miami beach. I used a realtor.

Help the community by answering this question:


A seller typically pays around 6% of the closing cost in commissions. That's 3% for the listing agent, and 3% for the buyer's agent.

But in Miami Beach there are companies like eAgent.me that offer full real estate services and at a flat fee. Rather than taking commissions, eAgent.me only charges a nominal fee at the closing so sellers save at least 3% every time.

They vary depending, but you can figure anywhere between 3-5% of the sales price.

It's too hard to generalize and answer Steve. You have to speak with a Real Estate Professional to get an idea.
Good luck.

To have the most accurate closing cost you will have to sit down with an experienced realtor, Florida taxes are different than the state where I practice real estate but for the most part you will have to pay a tax to sell your house, realtor fees, attorney if needed in the state and depending in the rules in Florida you might have to pay a inspection disclosure fee. Please feel free to reach out to me I work some great professionals in the Miami area and would love to set you up with them.

All the best,

Easiest thing to do is to get pre-approved with a local lender. All In One Mortgage Lenders are great. They answer their calls 24/7 and you'll get to talk to a loan officer. One of the loan officers number is 305 979 9329. They don't charge points at all!!!! Try it... doesn't hurt to try.

Speak with your Realtor and/or your lender and they should be able to give you a fairly accurate estimate. They know the ins and outs of your transaction and have the most information to base it off of.

There isn't a "normal" cost so it is best to ask the most informed people - they should be happy to help.

Good luck!

Hi Steve,

Here's a break down for possible SELLER's costs at closing:

* Seller closing cost roughly between 1%-2% of sale price
* Commission and fee from listing agent
* Association dues
* Repairs if buyer and seller agree
* Lien if there is any
* Seller's attorney (optional)

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions or need assistance with selling your Miami Beach Condo.

I agree with Tim Moore. It all depends on the contract which you executed. This is the first step in any transaction. Who is paying for title, there are many other factors that will influence such as do you have a loan or is this a cash deal; where there special assessments, what are the assessment fees, when do you start paying these...some settlement agents will collect the first month as you will not have an established account so they do this as a courtesy..., are you escrowing for taxes, if you are obtaining a loan...and most important, although you have master insurance with the condominium association, you should obtain contents and liability insurance.

But your best bet is to ask your realtor.

Best wishes on this sad Christmas.

There is really no standard seller closing cost fee.... depending on Title company, surveyor charges,
attorney charges and commission fees and the property itself the amount can be quite different from
home to home, closing to closing.

But once you start the process you should get an approximate idea from your Realtor, attorney etc.
Your local Realtor is a much better resource for that question than we could be here....

Good luck to you.

Hope this helps...

Your Realtor should be able to answer this far batter than anyone here could. There are a lot of variables and your lender creates most of them. The lender or your Realtor are the ones to ask for these numbers and it will be based on the property, the loan, closing date, insurance cost, price of the property, taxes, etc.
