About Closing Costs

There are certain standard costs related to closing the sale of a house. Buyers and sellers almost always split these closing costs, as the sales contract specifies.

As you'll see below, many of the closing costs result from getting your loan. Since Advanced Mortgage, Inc. has extensive experience with closings & mortgages, we can help you understand your closing costs.

Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)

Buyers will receive a "Good Faith Estimate" of closing costs around the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs specified in the Good Faith Estimate are estimated based on Advanced Mortgage, Inc.'s experience with mortgage loans, but costs often vary a little bit between delivery of the Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and closing. We review Good Faith Estimates with buyers every day, so we'd be glad to answer your questions about closing costs.

Below is a fairly general list of closing costs. We will always provide a specific list of your closing costs when we deliver your Good Faith Estimate.
