Closing Costs

There are certain standard costs associated with closing the sale of a home. Buyers and sellers customarily share these costs, as the sales contract specifies.

Many of the costs associated with buying a home are associated with getting a loan. At Power Purchase Mortgage, we have extensive experience in mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive list of mortgage-related closing costs in your "Good Faith Estimate".

Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)

Buyers will receive a "Good Faith Estimate" of closing costs at the time the loan application is submitted to the lender. The closing costs specified in the Good Faith Estimate are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs usually change a little bit between the Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and closing. We will be glad to review the "Good Faith Estimate," answering questions and highlighting costs that can vary a little bit at closing.

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 loan application. At Power Purchase Mortgage, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we'll be sure to let you know immediately.
