Real Estate Owned Properties Requesting Buyers To Pay Transfer Taxes In New York

Due to a boom of Real Estate Owned (REO) sales in our area, all banks are requiring buyers to pay for transfer tax for sales exceeding $500. There is a lot of buyers inexperience in buying real estate. They are very eager to get the next BIG deal! As a professional guiding buyers in making the right decision, I like to present them with all the facts of a real estate transaction, which allows for them to make a decision based on facts, and emotional connection to a home. 

The transfer tax is a tax incurred by the city/county and state due to a sale of real estate property. It is a tax normally paid by the seller whenever he/she sells a real estate property. They are some exemptions of course to this example below, but this is the norm. Please visit the New York  City/County and State specific sites for further explanations; the examples below is only for NYC.In New York City, the transfer tax fee is 1% up to $500,000; after $500,001 the tax fee increases to 1.425%.  For more information, please visit NYC official site at 

 As of the New York Transfer Tax, the tax incur is $2 for every $500 of the sales price and an additional 1% for sales over $1 million or more.  For more information visity NY official site at 

 I hope this information helps you in your understanding and empowers you to make wise decisions in your next real estate transaction.
