What are typical seller closing costs in the Oceanside area?

Asked by Vy.martinez, Los Angeles, CA Thu Nov 8, 2012

My husband and I are considering selling our 3/1.5 single family home in Oceanside (92056) and I am just curious to know what closing costs would typically come to so we can start thinking about how much we need to sell it for to pay the mortgage.

Hi VY,
If you send me your address I can run comps and give you an Sellers Net sheet of all the approximate costs of selling. This would include, taxes, HOA, title, etc...
The listing agent should share this information with you when they give their listing presentation.
A good presentation should include - Marketing, area sales information - solds and actives ( you should know who your competition is ) listing strategies - timing is important, tips on improving your home to increase your value, and addressing possible inspection issues ( there are two levels of negotiation - 1. Purchase price and terms, 2. Request for Repairs from the physical inspection.
Also, you will need to have a termite inspection. Termite costs vary greatly so I recommend that you get estimates.
Best to you,

Closing costs vary based on many factors. With commissions included, you can anticipate 6.5% to 7%.

Best of luck,

Typically you will have closing costs of about 7% which includes the broker commission. So many of the costs are based on the selling price so it is hard to come up with a dollar amount without knowing the sales price.
When I list a home I give my clients a "net sheet" which is an estimate of the costs to sell the home and the estimated proceeds they will receive.
If you would like more information, please contact me directly and I can provide you with a market analysis of your home and a net sheet.

The easiest way to provide a straight answer here is probably to just give an example of a real life closed file. On a recent sale, with a price of $514,500, the total charges for our Seller was $30,762.50.

This amount will increase or decrease depending on your sales price, home owner's assoc (if applic), prorated expenses (i.e. tax, interest), termite work, home warranty, amount of commission, etc.

To help dial in a better approximation, closely based on your specific scenario, just call me or email your details, and I will be happy to generate a "net sheet". Alternatively, any good escrow company will be happy to calculate one for you.

The largest seller cost are the commissions. Typically, this is 5% with each agent getting half of that. Sellers also have to pay title insurance, half of escrow costs, and typically pay costs for section 1 termite clearance, transfer and hoa fees. It adds up. If you would like to contact me directly, I can do a seller net sheet for you that is customized to your home. It would be my pleasure.

The costs will be aprox. 3-5% of the purchase price. This can vary depending of the type of loan, purchase price, down payment, etc. but that is a safe range for properties between 200-600k
