The cost and profit of selling your house

it costs money to moveThe bad news is – it costs money to move. If it didn’t, we’d all probably move a lot more often.

The costs of moving break down into seven categories: property cost, legal cost, mortgage cost, selling costs, closing adjustments, moving costs, utility costs. Here’s a handy guide to help you work out your costs.

The good news is, if you’ve been in your house more than a couple of years, even after the associated costs of moving, you’ll likely still make money. That’s because house prices have been rising steadily over the past few decades.

Selling price – total cost = profit.
