TRANSFER STAMPS



Whether you are a home buyer or a home seller, you will come to know about a term called “Transfer Stamps”. Transfer stamps are purchased before the closing day from the town where the property is located. Whether it is a seller who pays for it or a buyer, it varies from town to town. We have collected all that information and organized it by Chicago Area and Suburban Area of Illinois.
