How to Use the Hauseit® NYC Home Sale Net Proceeds Calculator [Tutorial]


In this Hauseit tutorial we will show you how to use the New York City home sale net proceeds calculator. The purpose of the calculator is to determine as a seller how much your closing cost will be and furthermore what your net proceeds would be on a sale. Now, in order to use the calculator assuming you have a mortgage. We do need to know the amount of your loan payoff. You can find this information on your most recent mortgage statement or you can log in to online banking and it should be there or you can give your lender a call. Assuming you have that information, the next step is to navigate to the calculator site which is visible here on the top left. It is hauseit.com forward slash NYC home sale net proceeds calculator. Now once you’re on the page, if you go to the left hand side, you will see a number of inputs which you can fill out depending on your scenario. So in the example of say selling a two million dollar co-op, you would input the sales price of 2 million dollars. He would select the housing type as co-op and in the event you have a mortgage you can toggle it on here and type in the loan payoff amount. So let’s just say hypothetically you owe eight hundred and fifty thousand dollars. You would put that here as the loan payoff amount and then for New York City broker commission, hopefully you’re paying less than six percent. If you’re using the Hauseit Agent Assisted FSBO Platform and you find a direct buyer, you may very well be paying zero percent but we can come back to that in a little bit. Now if you’ve selected co-op there will be an automatic flip tax that is turned on and it is currently set to one and a half percent which is a fairly typical considerate an average number for a co-op flip tax here in the city. Of course you can customize it so to come up with the most accurate figure we would suggest that you contact your managing agent or check in your house rules, bylaws or purchase application to figure out the exact amount of your flip tax. So we filled in all of the preliminary fields at this point and so if you look on the right-hand side it is going to tell us essentially how we stand when it comes to our net sale proceeds. So the total seller closing costs are a whopping a hundred and ninety three thousand dollars Nine point six percent now the majority of these come in the form of the broker commission. So as it goes without saying it’s very important to figure out a way to minimize if not fully eliminate the commission amount. If you are selling through the agent assisted FSBO platform, the buyer comes without a broker, the broker commission would be zero and you can see how this takes your seller closing costs down from approximately two hundred thousand dollars to seventy two thousand dollars. So that’s certainly more than the median income for a New Yorker. It’s a huge amount of money that you can save by being a bit creative on the broker commission side of the equation. Now in this example, we’d have our closing costs of seventy three thousand. You have your loan payoff amount so your net sale proceeds is another way of thinking about how much you would essentially have left after you’ve left the closing table. So on a sale of two million you are going to come out with a little bit under 1.1 million dollars. Now, let’s go back to the broker Commission and if we put back that six percent you can see that your proceeds have gone down from nearly 1.1 million dollars to well below a million dollars around nine hundred and fifty thousand. So again, it’s a very important component of seller closing costs the bulk of them are actually comprised of just the commission figure the other large seller closing costs are primarily going to be the transfer taxes in New York City. These are the two entries right here. You have New York City and New York State.

So in this case if we select it and put 10,000, you’ll see a fairly considerable reduction in your seller closing cost which will carry through to a higher net sale proceeds.

So even if you’ve already sent yourself an email you can for example update the sale price change the payoff amount change the commission. Let’s say you’re with the Hauseit Agent Assisted FSBO and you find a buyer with a buyer agent, you wouldn’t have any listing agent percentage commission but maybe you would have a buyer agent commission say of two and a half percent or whatever you offer. In that case as you can see here, it will improve your net sale proceeds pf course versus a typical six percent commission so you can learn a bit more about those reduced commission options by going to the Hauseit site.
