"Closing Costs" are the fees which cover the various services involved when you sell or buy a house. Sellers and buyers usually negotiate to decide how to split these closing costs.
As the list below indicates, many of the closing costs result from getting your loan. At The Mortgage Partner, we have extensive experience in residential mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive list of mortgage-related costs in your "Good Faith Estimate".
Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)
Buyers get a "Good Faith Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. This closing cost estimate is based on the loan officer's past experience. It's important to note that while our GFEs are very accurate, we cannot always predict closing costs to the penny. We will be glad to review the "Good Faith Estimate," answering your questions and pointing out costs that can change slightly at closing.
We've provided a general list of closing costs below, but we will provide you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, very soon after you have completed your application. At The Mortgage Partner, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we will be sure to let you know immediately.
