    There are many things you’ll have to pay for when selling your home. Here are the four main costs of selling:

    1. Closing costs. Buyers usually pay closing costs. However, to get a buyer to purchase their house, often a seller will contribute to closing costs. In San Antonio, it’s more common if the property is under $500,000.
    2. Commissions. Remember, when you pay real estate commissions in San Antonio, you’re often paying the commissions for both the seller’s and buyer’s agents.
    3. Smaller costs. Painting, cleaning, staging, yard upkeep—all the lesser costs of preparing a home for sale.
    4. Fees. Attorney and title fees are included in selling costs.

    Before you sell your house, make sure to ask your real estate agent for a seller’s net sheet; this nicely breaks down each expense.
