Certain standard costs are associated with closing the sale of a home. Buyers and sellers usually share these costs, as specified in the real estate sales contract. However as a result of obtaining a mortgage, the buyer will have certain costs that are specific to the loan.
Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)
Soon after you apply for a loan, we will give you a "Good Faith Estimate" of your costs. We base this cost estimate on our many years of past experience. It's important to note that while our GFEs are very precise, we can't always predict costs to the penny. We field buyers' questions about these costs every day so don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
Below you'll find a fairly generic list of closing costs. We will provide a specific list of your closing costs when we provide your Good Faith Estimate.
