According to Zillow and Thumbtack's new 2019 Hidden Costs of Selling research, home sellers in the United States spend $20,851 on average to sell their homes. This includes closing costs, but also the improvements and other projects made when people are preparing their homes for sale. More than half of today's sellers are doing so for the first time, and the costs associated with the process may come as an unwelcome surprise. Zillow and Thumbtack identified several common - but often overlooked - expenses to inform sellers as they prepare to list their homes this spring.
