Q. We are selling our home for cash. What fees is each party responsible to pay? We live in Florida
A: The contract determines what closing costs are paid by each party to the transaction. Having said that, typically, as a seller, you should expect to pay real estate commissions. You should also expect to pay documentary stamp taxes on the deed. You will also be required to pay for the title search and any cost related to correcting title defects.
