Florida closing costs

4 Replies

Hello BP!

I hate to waste anyone's time but I cannot figure this out. How do closing costs work in Florida when buying and selling with cash?

If I buy a property through my realtor for cash, flip it, and sell it to a buyer with their own purchasing agent how much commision will I pay on both sides?

I believe I will pay 3% on purchase but I am not sure about closing. 

Thank you for any insight.

As for commissions, they are paid in full by the seller, Unless you use a realtor to help with a fsbo purchase, then you's pay them on your side.  As for closing costs, In most counties, the seller generally pays for title insurance (0.55% of price) doc stamps (0.7%) title search and misc.  so, seller=1.25% plus $600-$1,000.  The buyer for closing costs, $400-$600, excluding any financing items, prepaid insurance, taxes, survey if desired.
