Closing Costs for Home Real Estate Transactions

All residential real estate transactions involves costs. Buyers and sellers customarily split these closing costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.

Many of the costs associated with buying a house are associated with getting a mortgage. At Chris Caggiano - Grand Oaks Funding, LLC, we have extensive experience in residential mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive report on closing costs related to your mortgage in your "Loan Estimate".

Loan Estimate (Also known as the LE)

Soon after you apply for a loan, we'll provide you with a "Loan Estimate" of your closing costs. The closing costs spelled out in the LE are estimated based on Chris Caggiano - Grand Oaks Funding, LLC's experience with mortgage loans, but costs often vary by small amounts between the Loan Estimate (LE) and closing. We will be glad to review the "Loan Estimate," answering questions and pointing out costs that can vary a little bit at the closing table.
