Closing costs vary according to whatever fees the attorney and banks assign, including points. The largest single line-item for a buyer would be transfer tax, which is 3% total, usually split between the buyer and the seller. I usually tell clients to budget around 4-5%, which should cover everything within reason. One caveat to that is new construction, which can include impact fees in the thousands.
Hi Angie, I agree. I tell my buyers plan on about 4-5% of contract price toward closing costs. Now if we can get the seller to pay some of that or if there are programs that you qualify for, you can definitely get in paying very very little costs. Sellers and builders are more flexible these days. Good Luck!
Send me your specifics and I will send you a projected estimate of closing costs.
