I would say for that price, a good rule of thumb is 3-4% of purchase price. But if you are putting a lot down and not having property taxes impounded, they could be a lot less.

I think most people had already answer correctly. There are some programs that can be zero closing costs VA No No. You just need the down payment. However the seller will have to agree to pay your closing costs, which typically you just add it to the purchase price.

I can give you more detailed information , just call me (562) 673-0943

Closiing costs vary depending on type of loan, if you are required as in fha loans or want to have an impound account so that your taxes and more are more easily managed by impounding.When an impound account is needed or wanted that can increase the amount you need to close (added closing costs) besides your escrow ,title, insurance and other 3rd party fees.These days when impounding it adds up getting closing costs to 3% or more quickly give or take. Lenders can sometimes offer options to give lender credit of 1% to 3% and upwards to help with that by offering slightly higher than par interest rates as a great option. You way out the out of pocket costs it would take for your closing costs and impound account monies needed if you pay them yourself or if you option or offered the option to the Lender adjusted interest rate. Not all lenders offer it and it does depend on factors like fico score ltv type of loan and more that varies the amounts that can be offered. The numbers will make the sense if it is the route to go or not. I am both a realtor and loan officer so I have much to share including possible lender credit.. I would like to help you further if you would contact me. I hope this is helpful!
Thank You,

It only takes a few minutes of your time to know the answers in minutes depending on your fico scores, debt to income ratios and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs...

@ Jeremy, exactly what do you think your answer is?

I don't have an answer. It all depends on his loan. I'm not a lender and don't know the loan type, points, etc. I just thought it was ridiculous for all these are you pre-approved/call me posts. Your signature is obnoxious with an insane amount of links.

The exact amount of the closing costs depends on the terms of your purchase and the terms of the loan your are getting, to make easier everybody estimates to be 3% of the sales price, keep in mind that if you don't have enough money to pay for the closing costs you can always ask the seller to pay for part or all of them.
If you need help negotiating your purchase, please give me a call, I also have a condo available for sale in Long Beach that you may be interested.

It depends on your fico scores to qualify for a loan program from half percent down, 3% down, 3.5% down, 5% down, etc and closing costs. Let's just say I can get you funded with minimum out of pocket expenses of about 4k down payment and closing costs...

Approximate closing costs should be disclosed when you are speaking with your lender.....are you pre approved? And are you working with a Realtor?

If not please let me know and I can refer you to a great lender and help you find your new home!!

Thank you

Are you pre-approved and have a lender and agent? It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify you in minutes and go over your options and costs. It all depends on if you utilize premium financing to cover some closing costs. You can buy with minimum out of pocket expenses.
