Every home sale incurs certain fixed costs. Buyers and sellers usually share these closing costs, as the sales contract specifies.
As you'll see below, many of the costs result from getting your mortgage loan. Since Chris Caggiano - Grand Oaks Funding, LLC is highly experienced with mortgages & closings, we can help you understand your closing costs.
Very shortly after you submit your application, we'll provide you with the "Loan Estimate" of your costs. We base this cost estimate on our many years of past experience. Please note that while our LEs are very precise, we cannot always predict closing costs to the penny. We will be glad to review the "Loan Estimate," answering questions and pointing out costs that sometimes vary a little bit at the closing table.
Below is a fairly general list of costs for buying a home. We will provide you with a specific list of your closing costs when we deliver your Loan Estimate.
