Common costs in selling a home include:
Escrow is a process for handling the details of the transaction from the time the purchase agreement is accepted until title is transferred to the buyer. An escrow is a temporary deposit of assets, such as funds and documents, with a neutral third party that makes sure that the terms of the purchase agreement are carried out. The money is released when the conditions of the contract between the two parties have been met.
The length of an escrow is determined by the terms of the purchase agreement and can range from a few days to several months. An escrow often takes an average time of 30 to 45 days.
A commission amount is negotiated between the Seller and the Seller's agent, and that amount is usually divided among the Seller's agent's Brokerage, the Seller's agent, the Buyer's agent's Brokerage, the Buyer's agent and any referring agents. Real Estate commissions are traditionally paid at the close of escrow from the Seller's proceeds.

Ron did an awesome job selling our home in 2015. He helped us through the whole process. He was also our broker when we bought the home. We have been with Ron a very long time and we would highly recommend him to others.
