Seller's Net Sheet

Before excepting an offer on a home it's a good idea to have your Real Estate Agent give you a Sellers Net Sheet. The Seller's Net Sheet is a document that estimates how much money you expect to earn from the sale of your home after subtracting fees and expenses. Typically home sellers can expect between 6 to 10% of the final sales price in commissions and closing costs. The sellers net sheet is a more detailed list of where the money is going. The Sellers Net Sheet is an estimate of the proceeds, usually the Title Company will send a Settlement Statement a few days before closing with exact numbers.

Who Prepares The Net Sheet

Typically the Seller's Agent will prepare the Seller's Net Sheet. Sometimes the Title Company will. Depending on your agent they may prepare one when a list price is set to give a rough idea of what to expect. Another time is when a prospective buyer makes an offer. Since the seller's net sheet lays out the estimated expenses, you the seller can make a more informed decision on fees and expenses.
