it depends on what is customary in your area. And closing costs can be negotiated.

John Sacktig answered:
Buyer pays their own closing costs. Especially with a short sale. Logically, why would a bank which is already taking less for a home, pay for someone to buy it too?

The seller side would be paid for by the bank from the sale proceeds as the seller probably as no money to pay for them, hence the short sale. ... more

Mary Petti answered:

You are very welcome. It's always nice to know, and have acknowledged, when our answers help someone. Doing your homework is always a good thing but as Realtors it's also OUR job to explain the process when you actively decide to start looking at homes, so there are (relatively) no surprises along the say.

If you are thinking about the Middlesex county area, northern Monmouth County or Somerset county, when you are ready to start your home search, and have not already chosen a Realtor, feel free to call me and I will be happy to explain the basics from the start.
Best of luck,

Mary Petti

There are some great answers that have been posted. As a licensed home inspector here in NJ for the last 18 years, and as an investor, I have acquired a wide range of information on the entire purchase and sale process. This often helps me facilitate answers for my clients when they call me about inspections.

Buyers are often confused about who does what and call me with many of these questions. They often think that the appraiser is the same as the inspector. They don't know about attorney review when in NJ the contract is not binding until the final sign off on the amended contract. Often, my clients don't know if the prospective home is public water and sewer, or, if private, what tests are required, which are discretionary and who pays for them. Is the house heated by oil, and, if so, is the tank in the ground and is it insured? If there was a prior tank, was it removed and are there proper EPA clean soil documents?

I will ask these questions and tell them we need these answers. Often, it is a result of too much diverse information that needs to be sorted out in a step by step manner and checked off in the right order. Some steps need to be done before others. The realtor, mortgage rep, appraiser, inspector and title/attorney all have specific roles and in specific, often overlapping order, but all towards the same goal: the successful conclusion of a complicated transaction.

It is very often the knowledge and experience of the professionals that facilitates or impedes the smooth flow of this process. I have found that it works best when each of these professionals knows his field on a high level, and also knows enough about the entire process, to make it happen, sometimes without a hitch!
