Seller's guide (fees)

Buyers pay the lion's share of closing costs, but sellers don't get off scot-free. This guide includes a rundown of seller's fees and important information sellers must know for closing.

Beyond agent commissions and paying off lines of credit associated with house that's being sold, sellers must account for their portion of settlement fees, including but not limited to verification that the existing mortgage has been paid off (mortgage release procurement) and preparation of a new deed for the buyer.
