How to Save on Closing Costs

Real Estate Broker/Owner with

After browsing through the large selection of Miami Beach condos you’ve finally come across the one you’d like and you’ve already done the research and chosen the best mortgage lender to business with. Before simply signing off on the dotted line, it may be worth your while to take a good look at the closing costs and how can you reduce the amount.

Closing fees can vary between loan-origination and third party fees, the lender can easily explain which fees fall under which category. You’ll usually find these listed as numbers starting somewhere in the 800 range up to the 1300s, most of which can be negotiated. Third party fees when closing on Miami Beach condos are a little tougher to negotiate and you’ll find some of them like credit report and appraisal in the 800s. However the 1100 range is where you’ll be able to get the biggest “bang for your buck” since this where fees like attorney fees, title insurance and search are usually kept.

It may be a good idea to familiarize yourself with some of the more common fees and what their common number is so you come to the table prepared instead of finding yourself overwhelmed and potentially missing out on hundreds of dollars in savings during the crucial closing stage.
