Closing costs are important to remember

Blog Post Image

Remember closing costs when you consider buying real estate.  It is exiting when you have decided to dive into the real estate market.  During this time you should build a team working for you.  This team should include a loan officer and a real estate agent both familiar with the area you are interested in.  This is a very important step, in the home buying process.  After all, you don't usually wonder about with no direction when you buy a car, why would you for a home?

When you meet with the loan officer you will want to obtain a pre-approval for a home loan.  You will need to supply documentation for income, assets and employment, which will be verified.  During this process the loan type, loan amount and costs will be outlined for you in a document called the Good Faith Estimate.  It is in this document that you will find the projected closing costs, which can vary.  If you are looking for a rough estimate of closing costs, according to Freddie Mac  “Closing costs are typically between 2 and 5% of your purchase price.”

Recently Closing Corp conducted a survey and, over half of all home buyers are surprised by the closing costs needed to obtain their mortgage.  “Home buyers reported being most surprised by mortgage insurance, followed by bank fees and points, taxes, title insurance and appraisal fees.”
