Amos - The costs will vary depending on your purchase price, loan amount, as well as property location.
Assuming you are purchasing a property in New York then you will want to be prepared for additional cost that you may not find in other markets.
Mortgage Tax: 2.05% of amount of mortgage on loans under $500,000; or, 2.175% of amount of mortgage on loans of $500,000 and over
New York City Transfer Taxes can range from 1%- 1.425% of the purchase price
New york State Transfer Tax is $2.00 for every $500 that you spend.
There is also a "mansion tax" if you are purchasing a home for more than $1,000,000
Outside of this you will have some of the more common charges that you will find in most markets -
Tax Escrows: 2 to 6 months
Recording Fees: $300
Fee Title Insurance: Approx. $450 per $100,000
Mortgage Title Insurance: Approx. $200 per $100,000
Title Search: $275+
Closing Fee:$200 +
in addition you may have to pay Fees to your Mortgage lender - however I recommend looking for a lender who does not charge any additional fees
