There are three categories of seller closing costs:
(1) listing costs, for us the low flat fee paid upfront and nothing additional,
(2) buyer agent commission, which you select the amount to offer (2-3% is most common) and it is listed in the MLS where agents can see the offer before they decide whether to show your property (this commission is paid by the seller at closing), and
(3) seller closing costs, which are the fees the governments and closing professionals charge sellers to transfer their property to another party, which are also paid at closing. These costs are typically the same regardless of whether a seller uses a traditional agent, BuySelf, or sells without any assistance.
