Don't Forget Closing Costs
There are certain standard costs related to closing the sale of a house. Sellers and buyers usually split these closing costs, as specified in the sales contract.
Many of the costs associated with buying a house are associated with getting the mortgage. At One Source Lending 303-220-7500, we are highly experienced in mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive list of mortgage-related closing costs in your "Good Faith Estimate".
Good Faith Estimate (Also know as the GFE)
Buyers will get a "Good Faith Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. We base this closing cost estimate on our many years of past experience. It's important to note that while our GFEs are very accurate, we cannot always estimate closing costs to the penny. We will be glad to review the "Good Faith Estimate," answering your questions and pointing out costs that sometimes change slightly at the closing table.
We've provided a general list of these costs below, but we will give you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, very soon after you have completed your loan application. At One Source Lending 303-220-7500, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we'll be sure to let you know immediately.
