Your Closing Costs
There are certain standard costs associated with closing the sale of a home. Sellers and buyers almost always split these closing costs, as the sales contract specifies.
As indicated below, many of the buyer's closing costs are related to the costs of originating the loan. At Savers Home Loans, we have extensive experience in mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive list of closing costs related to your mortgage in your "Loan Estimate".
The Loan Estimate (Also known as the LE)
Buyers will receive a "Loan Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs spelled out in the LE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs usually vary by small amounts between delivery of the Loan Estimate (LE) and closing. We review LEs with buyers every day, so we are happy to answer the you have about closing costs.
