Today, we're helping you understand closing costs and what each of those fees entails.
In the first three segments of our 'A Buyer's Guide to Closing Costs,' we went over the closing costs that are typically associated with your home loan, the inspection of your home and property, and government fees, escrow and other prepaid fees. This week, in our final installment of our 'A Buyer's Guide to Closing Costs' series, we're exploring the cash to close closing costs.
Closing or Settlement Fee
Closing or settlement fees are paid to the attorney, title company, or escrow company that conducts the closing on your new home.
Recording fees are paid to the state of your new home to record the transfer of property from the previous owner to you.
This closing cost is also paid to the state of your new home. Transfer tax fees are dependent on the amount of your mortgage.
That's all for our 'A Buyer's Guide to Closing Costs' series. Thanks for sticking it out with us!
