About Closing Costs
"Closing Costs" are the fees which pay for the various services involved when you sell or buy a home. Buyers and sellers usually negotiate these costs.
As indicated below, many of the costs result from getting your mortgage. At Reliance Mortgage Service, Inc, we are highly experienced in residential mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive report on mortgage-related costs in your "Loan Estimate".
Loan Estimate (Also known as the LE)
Soon after you submit your application, we'll provide you with the "Loan Estimate" of your costs. We base this cost estimate on our many years of past experience. Please note that while our LEs are very precise, we can't always predict costs to the penny. We go over LEs with buyers almost every day, so we'd be glad to answer your questions about closing costs.
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 have completed your loan application. At Reliance Mortgage Service, Inc, we don't believe in surprises, so if your costs change, we will be sure to let you know immediately.
