You hear more talk about buyer's closing costs and not seller's closing costs in Sacramento. Most likely because the difference between the two is pretty basic. The buyer generally takes money out of her savings account to close escrow. She needs to deposit usable funds into escrow.
On the other hand, the seller's closing costs come out of the sales price, for all practical purposes. Not out of pocket. So some people think, well, they don't really pay but they do. It's also the reason buyers often ask sellers to make repairs or give them money because they feel the financial positions are unbalanced. That sellers have more money than the buyers, in many instances. But that's beside the point.
