Every home sale incurs costs. Sellers and buyers almost always split these closing costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.
As you'll see below, many of the costs result from getting your loan. At First State Bank, we have extensive experience in residential mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive list of mortgage-related costs in your "Loan Estimate".
Soon after you apply for a loan, we will give you the "Loan Estimate" of your costs. The closing costs spelled out in the LE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs usually change by small amounts between the LE and closing. We will be glad to review the "Loan Estimate," answering your questions and pointing out costs that sometimes change slightly at the closing table.
Below is a fairly general list of closing costs. We will always provide a specific list of your closing costs when we deliver your Loan Estimate.
