In today's economy everyone is trying to save money by clipping coupons, rushing to the mall in the middle of the night on Black Friday, and by selling their home by themselves without using a real estate agent. Sadly, there are many home sellers who truly underestimate the commitment required to sell a home on their own. Every aspect of selling a home takes a lot of time from marketing to figuring out the correct sale price with the best terms. Given time, eventually the home owner may sell his property, but at a heavy cost of lost time due to incorrect pricing and ineffective marketing all of which may cause them to regret trying to sell their home on their own. Don't be penny wise and dollar foolish. More times than not homeowners who decide to market and sell their home without usin...

Selling CostsThe amount you gain on the sale of your home is taxable, if over a certain amount. Though some of the gain is excluded from taxes, you want to reduce the gain amount to as little as possible to avoid a hefty tax bill. Many selling costs allow you deduct from the gain of the sale of your home. These selling fees include closing costs, real estate agent commission, advertising, title insurance and inspection costs.  Moving CostsWhen you must sell your home due to work, you may meet criteria allowing deduction of moving costs. If the job is more than 50 miles from your current house and is a full-time position, you can deduct certain moving costs. These costs include transportation costs, moving company fees, lodging expenses and storage of items. If your employer has a reloca...
