What fee will I pay on the sale of my home?

The biggest fee you’ll pay on the sale of your home is your real estate broker’s fee, which is usually 6% of the purchase price. After that, you’ll have certain title fees. In Palm Beach County, the seller pays title insurance, which is a fee that’s promulgated by the state of Florida. There are also documentary stamp taxes, which are 7/10 of 1%. You should check with an experienced real estate attorney who can give you a breakdown of your particular case.
