"Closing Costs" are the fees that pay for the various services involved in the sale of a home. Sellers & buyers often negotiate the payment of these costs.
Many of the costs associated with buying a house are associated with getting a loan. At AmeriBest Mortgage, we are highly experienced in residential mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive report on closing costs related to your mortgage in your "Loan Estimate".
Buyers will receive a "Loan Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. This cost estimate is based on the loan officer's past experience. Please note that while our LEs are very accurate, we cannot always predict your costs to the penny. We explain Loan Estimates with buyers almost every day, so we will be happy to answer the you have about closing costs.
We've provided a general list of these costs below, but we will give you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, very soon after you have completed your application. At AmeriBest Mortgage, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we'll be sure to let you know immediately.
