Don't Forget Closing Costs

There are certain standard costs related to closing the sale of a home. Buyers and sellers almost always split these closing costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.

Many of the closing costs associated with buying a home are associated with getting the mortgage. Since AmeriBest Mortgage is highly experienced with closings & mortgages, we can help you understand your closing costs.

The Loan Estimate (Also known as the LE)

Buyers will get a "Loan Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs spelled out in the Loan Estimate are estimated based on AmeriBest Mortgage's experience with mortgage loans, but costs usually vary a little bit between delivery of the Loan Estimate (LE) and closing. We will be glad to review the "Loan Estimate," answering your questions and highlighting costs that can change slightly at the closing table.

Below you'll find a generic list of closing costs. We will provide you with a specific list of your closing costs when we provide your Loan Estimate.
