"Closing Costs" are the fees which cover various services involved in the sale of a house. Buyers and sellers almost always negotiate to decide how to split these closing costs.
As indicated below, many of the costs result from getting your mortgage loan. At Colorado Mortgage Company, we have extensive experience in residential mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive list of closing costs related to your mortgage in your "Good Faith Estimate".
Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)
Very shortly after you submit your application, we will provide you with a "Good Faith Estimate" of your costs. The closing cost estimate comes out of the loan officer's past experience. Please note that while our GFEs are very precise, we cannot always estimate your costs to the penny. We will be glad to review the "Good Faith Estimate," answering your questions and pointing out costs that sometimes change slightly at closing.
We've provided a general list of closing costs below, but we will provide you a specific list of closing costs, with amounts, soon after you complete your loan application. At Colorado Mortgage Company, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we'll be sure to let you know immediately.
