Closing Costs for Residential Real Estate Transactions

Leading Edge Mortgage Corp. can help you understand closing costs. Call us: (561) 392-0040.

All residential real estate sales involves certain fixed costs. Buyers almost always pay these costs, as specified in the real estate sales contract, however, depending on State law the seller may be required to pay a portion of the closing costs. "Closing Costs" are the fees that cover various services involved in the sale of residential real estate. These fees can be paid out of pocket or indirectly by increasing the loan amount or charging a higher interest rate.

As you'll see below, many of the buyer's costs are related to the costs of originating the mortgage loan. Since Leading Edge Mortgage Corp. has extensive experience with closings and mortgages, we are closing cost experts.

The Loan Estimate provides you with information like insurance and taxes, closing costs, monthly payments and more.
