How do Closing Costs Work?

At Moneyline Mortgage, Inc., we answer questions about closing costs every day. Call us: 813-645-9004.

All residential real estate sales incurs fixed costs. Buyers customarily incur these closing costs, as specified in the sales contract, however, depending on State law the seller may have to split a portion of the closing costs. "Closing Costs" are the fees that pay for the various services involved in the sale of a home. These fees might be paid directly or indirectly by increasing the loan amount or charging a higher interest rate.

As indicated below, many of the buyer's closing costs are related to the costs of getting the loan. At Moneyline Mortgage, Inc., we have extensive experience in residential mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive list of mortgage-related closing costs in your estimate.

Getting The Loan Estimate

Within three days after you apply for a loan, we will give you a Loan Estimate. The Loan Estimate details information like insurance and taxes, closing costs, monthly payments and more. This estimate is not an approval, rather it's the first step toward obtaining your loan.
