Anticipated closing costs

There are certain expected fees accompanying closing the sale of a house. These costs are usually divided between the buyer and seller, as instructed in the sales contract. Many are conventional, but there are nuances to each, so you’ll want a real estate expert in New York to help direct you through the deal. We can explain these for you but, it’s always best to have your attorney explain them as they will be calculating them just before the closing.
