Closing costs are the fees 3rd parties charge when you buy your home; these costs vary & include items such as bank fees, escrow/title fees, 1 year paid premium for homeowner’s insurance, appraisal fee, credit report charges, etc. At least 3 business days before closing, your lender must send you a Closing Disclosure (CD). This form lists all final terms of your loan such as closing costs and the details of who pays and receives money at closing. Typically these fees are about 3% of the purchase price. Time of year can impact this total by the amount of adjustments in taxes owed for example. I am not see buyers asking to roll these into the purchase price right now: this is referred to as “seller concessions”.
Sellers pay commission, conveyance taxes and attorney representation fees. Sellers get back pre-paid taxes and money for the fuel left in tanks at time of closing. I have created a helpful guide to start homeowners thinking about those options. If you want a free no obligation copy: https://bit.ly/SellerGuideRequest
