You can deduct selling expense such as commission and other fees paid
You can also increase the cost basis with the settlement charged you paid at the time of purchasing the Condo and any improvements made to the Condo after you purchased.
The difference between selling price minus selling expenses minus cost basis as discussed above will get you the correct capital gain.
Let me know if you have any question.
