About Closing Costs

There are certain standard costs associated with closing the sale of a home. Buyers and sellers usually share these closing costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.

As the list below indicates, many of the closing costs result from getting your mortgage. At Cal Coast Financial Corp, we are highly experienced in residential mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive list of mortgage-related costs in your "Good Faith Estimate".

The Good Faith Estimate (Also know as the GFE)

Soon after you submit your application, we will give you a "Good Faith Estimate" of your closing costs. The closing costs spelled out in the GFE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs often vary by small amounts between delivery of the GFE and closing. We handle questions about closing costs every day at Cal Coast Financial Corp, so don't hesitate to ask if you have questions.

Below you'll find a general list of closing costs. We will always provide you with a specific list of your closing costs when we deliver your Good Faith Estimate.
