Your Closing Costs
There are certain standard costs associated with closing the sale of a home. Sellers and buyers almost always split these costs, as specified in the sales contract.
As you'll see below, many of the closing costs result from getting your loan. At Pacific Loan Brokers, we are highly experienced in residential mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive list of mortgage-related costs in your "Good Faith Estimate".
Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)
Buyers will receive a "Good Faith Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs specified in the GFE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs often vary by small amounts between delivery of the Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and closing. We will be glad to review the "Good Faith Estimate," answering your questions and highlighting costs that sometimes vary a little bit at closing.
Below you'll find a fairly general list of closing costs. We will provide you with a specific list of your closing costs when we deliver your Good Faith Estimate.
