How do Closing Costs Work?
Certain standard costs are related to closing the sale of a home. Sellers and buyers customarily share these costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.
Many of the costs associated with buying a home are associated with getting the loan. At Tenby J. Dahman The Dahman Team , we are highly experienced in mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive list of mortgage-related costs in your "Loan Estimate".
Loan Estimate (Also known as the LE)
Buyers get a "Loan Estimate" of closing costs around the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs enumerated in the LE are estimated based on Tenby J. Dahman The Dahman Team 's experience with mortgage loans, but costs usually vary a little bit between the Loan Estimate (LE) and closing. We will be glad to review the "Loan Estimate," answering questions and highlighting costs that can vary a little bit at the closing table.
We've provided a general list of closing costs below, but we'll provide you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, soon after you have completed your application. At Tenby J. Dahman The Dahman Team , we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we'll be sure to let you know immediately.
