Every home sale involves costs. Buyers and sellers usually split these costs, as specified in the sales contract.

As the list below indicates, many of the closing costs result from getting your mortgage loan. At Cosatal Financial Group, we have extensive experience in residential mortgage lending, so we can compile a comprehensive report on mortgage-related closing costs in your "Good Faith Estimate".

Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)

Very shortly after you submit your application, we'll provide you with the "Good Faith Estimate" of your closing costs. We base this cost estimate on our extensive past experience. Please note that while our GFEs are very accurate, we cannot always estimate your costs to the penny. We field questions about closing costs every day at Cosatal Financial Group, so don't hesitate to contact us if we can help answer your questions.
