Couple of questions ;
On the Mortgage balance of $214,900 what is the interest rate? Was it fixed or adjustable?
Try to negotiate the commission with buyers paying a percentage.
So far I have
Offer : $372,000
Expenses :$34,100
1/98 Purchase Price :$307,978
Realtor Commission : $13,020
Good so far?

I’m a newbie seller in need of help to calculate my real profit from the upcoming sale of my rental 2FAM property in New York City.

FACTS:

  1. I put a sign on that property last month, “FSBO”, and I got a written offer yesterday from a buyer.
  2. The original listing price was $414,500 but last week I reduced to $399,00.
  3. Offer is at 372,000 with 10% down or $37,200. The buyer gave $1,000 with offer, then he will give $24,000 when the contract is signed, and finally, he will give $12,200 at the closing. The purchase is subject to a $334,800 mortgage for 20 or 30 years. Buyer has pre-qualification from lender for a maximum $350,000 mortgage. It’s actually 2 buyers, [Friends, I guess!].
  4. Since the buyers were brought over to see the house with the help of a local RE Agent, such Agent asked me to pay him 3.5% commission or $13,020.
  5. I promised buyer certain miscellaneous repairs which will cost me about $100.
  6. I’ve informed buyer that I’ve hired the services of an Architect to upgrade my CO from 2FAM to 3FAM and that I will pay for such expenses, about $5,000.And in about 3 months, the buyer will receive the upgraded CO from my Architect.
  7. As soon as I’ve purchsed this property back in January 1998, I spent about 18,000 for renovation costs.
    Also, I’ve purchased this property for $307,978. Also, so far, I’ve spent about $1,000 in repair costs. Since January, I paid my lender a total of $16,500 in mortgages.
  8. When I bought this house, I put-down $102,750 total cash, the balance was mortgaged in the amount of $214,900.
    When I bought it, I paid about $10,000 in closing costs.

What’s my net profit after taxes???

Have your payments come from cash flow? or from your pocket? You need to call your accountant and ask him what your taxable gain is… Also, I would suggest a 1031 exchange to save you from your taxes, but that would mean having another property to purchase within 3 months of sale and hiring an attorney. My expenses usually are 2500 to 3500 on a transaction like this. Without further info, if you are in the 28% tax bracket, looks like you will profit 10,774.00. But that is rough. Looks like I would hold out for a better offer, if I were you. Or carry back a loan instead of coming down so far on your price. Unless I have missed something, you would be giving everything away.
