Have a clear expectation of what you will receive at closing. If you have an expert advisor you will have complete knowledge of what your equity position is before you receive a contract. Most certainly, you should be fully aware of your position once the contract has been accepted. Fees associated with selling a home can be many. Breaking down each fee is extremely important because after all deductions, you will want to know the amount you will receive after closing. This money is what you have worked so hard for as a homeowner.
