About Closing Costs

All residential real estate sales incurs costs. Sellers and buyers usually share these closing costs, as specified in the real estate sales contract.

Many of the closing costs associated with buying a home are associated with getting a mortgage. Since Cal Coast Financial Corp is highly experienced with mortgages and closings, we often explain the details of closing costs.

Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)

Soon after you apply for a loan, we'll provide you with a "Good Faith Estimate" of your costs. The closing costs specified in the GFE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs often vary by small amounts between the GFE and closing. We field buyers' questions about closing costs every day at Cal Coast Financial Corp, so please be sure to ask if you have questions.
