Closing costs vary based on the type of loan transaction, such as a mortgage refinance versus the purchase of a new home. Once you have applied, a mortgage processor will be able to give you a rough estimate of your expected closing costs.
In general closing costs typically range from around $3,500 – $4,000 dollars. This figure would include the appraisal fee, credit report fee, attorney’s fees, title insurance, and flood determination fee.
In addition to the closing costs, most mortgage loans require an escrow account for property taxes and homeowners insurance. The amount needed to fund this escrow account varies based on the annual cost of these bills.
A purchase has other costs that are added to the above, such as state transfer taxes, which are calculated at $15.00 per thousand of the purchase price. Typically this cost is split between the buyer and the seller.
