Most buyers in need of seller assistance are going to assume that a seller is willing to assist them if they write a reasonable offer, regardless of list price. Closing costs being paid is sort of a given with many buyers these days. The trick is to get an offer... and you'll only get one if your price is competitive. I just reduced a listing that had 4 showings in the past 6 weeks a mere $2,500. It hit the hot sheet on the MLS and within 2 days I scheduled 6 showings. So price reductions can work; they will definitely work if you're overpriced at the moment.
So... get a buyer and then think about closing costs. But it will be unrealistic for you to reduce your price and not think buyers still won't want you to give a little more. That's the market we're in. It isn't 2006 anymore. Good luck with selling your home!
