Costs at Closing - Utah County Real Estate

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Home Buyer Realty Utah 5705835-PB00

Closing on a property is a very challenging time for a would-be homeowner.  Being informed, either through your mortgage broker, Realtor, or through self knowledge is the best thing you can be when going through this procedure. 

A good Realtor can help you tremendously.  They should know the local market well enough to help you save money in whatever way they can.  Since closing costs are handled differently in different areas, having a professional with experience in that area is your best bet.  They can give you a better idea of what costs are customarily paid by the buyer, and which ones are paid by the seller.

The Mortgage Broker you deal with can make a big difference as well.  Have them show you several programs suited to your needs.  There are lots of ways to structure closing costs based on your points and down payment. 

After finding a property, you will want to get qualified by your mortgage broker.  Your mortgage broker will send you a Good Faith Estimate within 3 days as required by law.  A GFE is a list of your closing costs that the lender does not control, so always be prepared to pay for other items also.  A good number to be prepared to pay would be to double the GRE amount.

Closing costs on average are from 3 percent to 5 percent of your loan amount, and the exact amount will be told to you the day before the closing.  All closing costs are to be paid at the settlement of the mortgage loan.
