How do Closing Costs Work?

"Closing Costs" are the fees which cover the various services involved in the sale of a home. Buyers and sellers usually negotiate to decide how to share these costs.

As you'll see below, many of the buyer's costs cover the costs of originating the loan. Since Prime Capital Mortgage Corp is highly experienced with closings & mortgages, we are closing cost experts.

Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)

Buyers will get a "Good Faith Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs enumerated in the GFE are estimated based on Prime Capital Mortgage Corp's experience with mortgage loans, but costs usually change a little bit between delivery of the Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and closing. We review Good Faith Estimates with buyers almost every day, so we are happy to answer any questions you have about closing costs.

Below you'll find a fairly generic list of costs for buying residential real estate. We will provide a specific list of your closing costs when we deliver your Good Faith Estimate.
