Closing Costs for Home Real Estate Transactions
There are certain standard costs associated with closing the sale of a house. Buyers and sellers usually split these closing costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.
Many of the closing costs associated with buying residential real estate are associated with getting a mortgage. At Riviera Funding NMLS#861382 CA DRE Broker #01186669, we are highly experienced in mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive list of mortgage-related closing costs in your "Loan Estimate".
