Don't Be in the Dark About Your Settlement Costs
Although your total settlement charges will vary depending upon the loan you’re getting, your interest rate and other factors, the fees that you will be charged shouldn't be a mystery. When you apply for a loan, you’ll receive a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) that lists an estimate of the charges you can expect to pay. Before going to settlement, you’ll be given a HUD-1 form which details the actual charges and these should match up fairly closely with the estimates on the GFE.
The chart below shows the 2014 average cost by U.S. state for a lender’s origination fees plus third-party fees (for services such as appraisals, credit reports, etc.). The totals are based on a $200,000 mortgage with a 20 percent down payment and good credit.
Keep in mind that these numbers are just averages and do not include other variable items such as title insurance, taxes, title search, interest, escrow fees, and other pre-paid items.
