Escrow and title fees are often negotiated. Whenever I negotiate a purchase agreement on behalf of a buyer, I always include language in the purchase agreement that reads," Buyer and Seller each to pay their own escrow fees". The reason for this is that escrow fees for the seller and buyer are much different. For example, the sales commission is usually paid for by the seller. Would you (as a buyer) want to pay 50% of the sales commission?
The title fee - I always ask for the seller to pay for the buyers CLTA title insurance. On a home in the $840,000 range (as you stated in your question), the title costs is normally around $884. Escrow fees would range approximately $1880 for the buyer. You will also have additional closing fees such as an appraisal report, Home inspection, Loan origination fees just to mention a few.
