About Closing Costs
All residential real estate sales involves costs. Buyers and sellers almost always split these closing costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.
As indicated below, many of the buyer's closing costs are related to the costs of getting the loan. At Savers Home Loans, we have extensive experience in residential mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive list of costs related to your mortgage in your "Loan Estimate".
Loan Estimate (LE)
Buyers will receive a "Loan Estimate" of closing costs around the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. We base this closing cost estimate on our extensive past experience. It's important to note that while our LEs are very precise, we cannot always predict costs to the penny. We handle buyers' questions about these costs every day at Savers Home Loans, so please feel free to contact us if we can help answer your questions.
We've provided a general list of closing costs below, but we will give you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, very soon after you have completed your loan application. At Savers Home Loans, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we will be sure to let you know immediately.
