What Will I Have To Pay In Closing Costs When Purchasing A Home

Closing costs can be as much if not more than the downpayment you make on your home. Make sure you obtain a Good Faith Estimate from your lender prior to commiting to them. This document will give you a breakdown of the various closing costs with an estimate of what each expense will cost you. The typical closing costs you will likely incur are:

Points- an optional fee paid to lower your interest rate

Loan Origination Fee

Credit Report Fee

Appraisal Fee

Recording Fees

Mortgage Recording Tax

Title Insurance


Homeowners Insurance

Lender’s Attorney Fee

Municipal Search Fees

Escrows for Real Estate Taxes and Insurance

You should plan to spend approximately 5% to 6% of the loan amount for closing costs. Once you know your projected closing costs, you can move forward with confidence in your transaction. For some, once they are told this number, they may reduce their downpayment or decide to finance a portion or all of their closing costs. The key  is to carefully review your numbers with your attorney prior to entering into yourcontract.

  • "My name is Emilio. When I was buying my property, I hired Mr William J Reinhardt Jr as my Real Estate Attorney, it was one of the best decision I ever made because he did everything in his power to make sure my purchase was successful. For example, The utilities bills left over by the person who owned the property before me. I said thank you to Bill for not allow me to pay these costly bills." - 5.0 stars | Posted by Emilio Bien Aime | October 1, 2019
