The home sale proceeds calculator uses the costs of selling a home in your area to estimate how much you could make when you sell your home.
Based on your estimated sale price, outstanding mortgage balance, and real estate fees and taxes, this is the estimated amount you’ll walk away with when you sell your home.
We use the estimated sale price of your home to calculate your net proceeds. To find out what your home is worth, get a free estimate of your home’s value from a LystHouse Agent.
Typically 5% to 6% of your home’s sale price will go toward real estate agent commission when you sell your home. In most locations, this is split equally between your agent and the buyer’s agent.
When you sell your home with a LystHouse Agent, you pay only a 1% listing commission — that’s 1/3 the usual listing commission. You still have to pay the buyer’s agent commission of 2.5% – 3%.
Your outstanding mortgage balance is subtracted from the sale price to determine how much you walk away with when selling. For an accurate estimate, use your current mortgage balance.
Some states require you to pay for the buyer’s title insurance policy, which protects the buyer from title defects, liens, or competing claims of ownership.
Escrow handles the exchange of money and documents in a real estate transaction. This cost covers the escrow fees associated with your home sale.
You may need to pay other fees when you sell your home, including recording fees or homeowners association fees.
The home sale proceeds calculator is intended for planning and educational purposes only. All calculations and costs are estimated and no warranty, express or implied, is made that all possible costs have been included.
