Once again, this is all negotiable. Many times when a buyer is short on cash the buyer can bidder higher for a property and then ask for the seller to pay closing cost. This happens a lot with FHA financing. Short sales are not good candidates for seller paid closing cost. The short sale bank will usually veto any seller paid closing cost.
Having said that, there are some "typical" pro-rations for who pays what depending on the area. In Tracy, the buyer and seller split some title and escrow fees 50/50, others are buyer pay (loan fees, points, etc) and others are seller pay (county transfer tax, commissions, etc).
Ask your agent to give you a buyer net sheet so you can see what you can expect to pay on an individual transaction. I'm close if you need further assistance.
