Every home sale incurs fixed costs. Sellers and buyers customarily split these costs, as specified in the real estate sales contract.
As indicated below, many of the costs result from getting your mortgage loan. At Southwest Funding #841, we are highly experienced in mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive report on mortgage-related closing costs in your "Loan Estimate".
Buyers get a "Loan Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs enumerated in the Loan Estimate are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs often change by small amounts between delivery of the Loan Estimate (LE) and closing. We review Loan Estimates with buyers every day, so we'd be glad to answer your questions about closing costs.
We've provided a general list of these costs below, but we'll give you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, soon after you have completed your application. At Southwest Funding #841, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we'll be sure to let you know immediately.
