Every home sale incurs certain costs. Buyers and sellers usually split these closing costs, as the sales contract specifies.
Many of the costs associated with buying a home are associated with getting the loan. At Savers Home Loans, we are highly experienced in residential mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive list of mortgage-related costs in your "Good Faith Estimate".
Good Faith Estimate (GFE)
Buyers will get a "Good Faith Estimate" of closing costs around 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 change a little bit between the GFE and closing. We field questions about closing costs every day at Savers Home Loans, so please be sure to contact us if we can help answer your questions.
We've provided a general list of these costs below, but we will provide you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, soon after you have completed your application. At Savers Home Loans, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we'll be sure to let you know immediately.
