All residential real estate sales involves fixed costs. Buyers customarily incur these costs, as specified in the sales contract, however, depending on State law the seller may have to split a portion of the closing costs.
"Closing Costs" are the fees which pay for various services involved in the sale of a house. These fees are either paid directly or indirectly by crediting the loan.
Many of the closing costs associated with buying a house are associated with getting the loan. At Prestige Home Mortgage, we are highly experienced in mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive report on closing costs related to your mortgage in your estimate.
The Loan Estimate
Three days after you apply for a loan, we will give you a Loan Estimate. The Loan Estimate lays out information like closing costs, taxes, insurance, estimated interest rate monthly payment and more. Getting an estimate doesn't mean you've been approved, rather it's the first step toward obtaining your loan.
We go over estimates with buyers almost every day, so we'd be glad to answer your questions about closing costs.
Below is a fairly general list of closing costs. We will always provide a specific list of your closing costs when we deliver your estimate.
