What Are Closing Costs?
What Exactly Are Closing Costs?
As a home buyer, it is important to know and understand the funds you will need in order to close on the purchase of your property. Aside from your down payment/cash portion of your purchase, what funds are you supposed to bring with you on closing day?
On your closing day, you will, of course, need to bring a cashier's check or wiring instructions so you can pay your down payment but you will also need to bring additional funds for your closing costs. The title company and your REALTOR® will be in touch to review a document titled "Closing Disclosure". Your closing disclosure will list out all of the necessary funds needed on the day of closing; this will include (but is not always limited to):
- Lender Charges
- Title Insurance Fees
- Attorney Fees
- Survey Cost
- Appraisal Fee
Closing costs will vary from loan to loan so it is important to work with a reputable, experienced, and knowledgeable lender who will help you find the best rates and mortgage loan options to reduce the overall cost (closing cost included) of purchasing your new home.
