If it's a single family, then you're likely looking at paying just the local recording fees and some escrow notary fees. Depending on the contract, you can expect to pay anywhere from as little as $40 to 2% of the purchase price. And, while not a cost of the transaction, you would also be expected to prepay for any upcoming property taxes. ... more

I am honestly not sure. You could check with a couple of lenders that may know...
Jay Johnson, First Republic Mortgage 282-0507
Rod Hinds, Caliber 765-509-0276
Brad Wilson, Capital Trust

Let me know if I can help you with any other info! Do you have a house in mind?

The sales price divided by the square footage of the home. I use this calculation this all the time in my market area (for active listings, then a separate summary for solds). If you take all the homes sold in a particular neighborhood and do an average for $ per SF = this certainly tells a story. There are always going to be some that are less than average and some more (this is obviously determined by the location and the ammenities. It is not an exact science and some agents won't use it but I use it and it certainly shows a homeseller a picture. If you do this for all the homes in your neighborhood ---I'm sure it will show you in a summary perhaps some homes which are overpriced. I hope this helps
Perform this calculation for say the last 3 or 6 months of sales in your neighborhood and you will get an average. Good luck.
Example: Selling Price = $400,000, SF of the home is 2300
$400,000 / 2300 = $173.91 or rounded to $174 SF

Hi Mitch,

Your local Licensed Real Estate agent can provide that for free, just ask. They will do a search on the local MLS and email or print out a list for you. You can also go to your local County Assessor's office and ask.

Best of luck,
-Don Sr. / Broker
