"Closing Costs" are the fees that cover the various services involved in the sale of a house. Sellers and buyers negotiate the payment of these closing costs.
Many of the closing costs associated with buying a home are associated with getting a loan. At FKEJ-4 Inc., dba Your Equity Services, we are highly experienced in residential mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive report on mortgage-related closing costs in your "Good Faith Estimate".
Good Faith Estimate (GFE)
Soon after you apply for a loan, we will give you the "Good Faith Estimate" of your closing costs. The closing costs specified in the GFE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs usually vary by small amounts between the GFE and closing. We will be glad to review the "Good Faith Estimate," answering questions and pointing out costs that sometimes change slightly at closing.
Below you'll find a fairly generic list of costs for buying residential real estate. We will always provide a specific list of your closing costs when we provide your Good Faith Estimate.
