"Closing Costs" are the fees that cover various services involved when you sell or buy a house. Sellers and buyers negotiate these costs.
Many of the closing costs associated with buying a home are associated with getting the mortgage loan. Since Firelight Mortgage Consultants has extensive experience with closings and mortgages, we often explain the details of closing costs.
Buyers get a "Loan Estimate" of closing costs around the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs enumerated in the LE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs often vary by small amounts between delivery of the LE and closing. We explain LEs with buyers every day, so we are happy to answer your questions about closing costs.
We've provided a general list of these costs below, but we'll give you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, soon after you have completed your loan application. At Firelight Mortgage Consultants, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we will be sure to let you know immediately.
