Escrow fee and title insurance will vary by title company, but $950 for the escrow fee is a safe estimate. Also about $2100 for the title insurance policy.
The lender's policy is generally paid for by the buyer in Santa Clara County.
County Transfer fee: $770.00
Escrow fee: approximately $950.00
Homeowner's Title Insurance basic rate: approximately $1,930.00
Lenderâ€™s Title Insurance (ALTA) on an 80% loan: approximately $692.00
Title and escrow fees vary slightly from one company to another.
An escrow officer at any title company here locally will put together a "net sheet" free of charge with line items that also typically include document transfer fees; recording fees; notary fees; and the environmental report required in the state of California for home sales. I like Dayna Santos at Chicago Title and Renee Lo at North American Title, both in Campbell.
