Certain standard costs are associated with closing the sale of a home. Buyers and sellers customarily split these costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.

Many of the closing costs associated with buying residential real estate are associated with getting the mortgage. Since Community Mortgage Corp. is highly experienced with mortgages and closings, we are closing cost experts.

Good Faith Estimate (GFE)

Very shortly after you submit your application, we will provide you with a "Good Faith Estimate" of your costs. We base this closing cost estimate on our extensive past experience. It's important to note that while our GFEs are very accurate, we can't always estimate your closing costs to the penny. We explain Good Faith Estimates with buyers almost every day, so we are happy to answer your questions about closing costs.

Below is a fairly generic list of closing costs. We will always provide you with a specific list of your closing costs when we deliver your Good Faith Estimate.
