Don't Forget Closing Costs

All residential real estate transactions involves fixed costs. Sellers and buyers customarily split these closing costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.

As indicated below, many of the closing costs result from getting your loan. Since Nationwide Home Loans is highly experienced with mortgages and closings, we can help you understand your closing costs.

Loan Estimates (LEs)

Soon after you apply for a loan, we'll provide you with the "Loan Estimate" of your closing costs. The closing costs specified in the LE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs usually vary a little bit between delivery of the Loan Estimate (LE) and closing. We explain LEs with buyers every day, so we'd be glad to answer the you have about closing costs.
