How Much Are Closing Costs?

how much closing costs refinance

With any refinance loan, there are third party closing costs involved in the transaction. We have reduced our fees by eliminating high pressure salespeople, but we wanted to do more for our borrowers. So, we went to work negotiating reduced fees charged by others as well.

Here are a few details on how we save you money on fees charged by others:

Bundled Title and Escrow

Most mortgage companies use a separate title and escrow service. At closing, you are paying a title fee, an escrow fee, a sub-escrow fee, wire fees and often courier fees to move documents back and forth between the separate title and escrow companies. What a waste!

We have negotiated a bundled title and escrow fee. By bundling title and escrow into one simple reduced fee, we have eliminated the wasted back and forth effort and expense usually expended by others. This saves our customers an average of almost $500 per loan.

Sound too good to be true? We’ll prove it to you. If you go get the final closing statement from your last purchase or refinance loan with another mortgage company, you will see all of the title and escrow costs in section 1100 of the Settlement Statement. Do you see the separate title, escrow, courier fees and so on? All of those redundant fees have been eliminated by our negotiations on your behalf.

Once you click Get Rates and view your new rate, payment and online good faith estimate, you will see our exact closing costs via our online good faith estimate. We have simplified the expenses to simplify the process. We don’t have high pressure salespeople to talk you into paying excessive fees, so what you see is what you get. No surprises.

Our most popular loan option is the zero point loan. Once you click Get Rates. the initial interest rate and payment is quoted with zero points. If you would like to explore buying down the interest rate, simply click the tab underneath the new loan proposal that says View Interest Rate Buy Down Options .

You can choose to buy down the rate by paying points. One point equals one percent of the loan amount. So, for example, one point on a $100,000 loan is $1,000.

There are many instances where the lower rate and payment will more than offset the fee you pay for buying down the interest rate.

Buying down the interest rate is not necessary and is completely your decision. Your Loan Coordinator will be able to help provide some insight into this for you. Please do not hesitate to ask.
