How do Closing Costs Work?
Certain standard costs are related to closing the sale of a home. Sellers and buyers usually split these closing costs, as the sales contract specifies.
As the list below indicates, many of the closing costs result from getting your mortgage loan. Since One Source Lending 303-220-7500 has extensive experience with mortgages & closings, we are closing cost experts.
Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)
Soon after you apply for a loan, we will give you the "Good Faith Estimate" of your costs.

We will be glad to review the "Good Faith Estimate," answering your questions and highlighting costs that can vary a little bit at closing.
