Be Prepared To Pay Closing Costs For Orlando Homes For Sale

Wed, Dec 29, 2010 at 8:40PM

No matter what type of mortgage the buyer of an Orlando home for sale chooses to use it is likely that they are going to be paying the mortgage for as long as the contract states. While buyers of Orlando homes for sale expect that payment to come and go on monthly basis a cost that many do not consider in the purchase of a home is the closing cost.

The buyer of a new home should expect their closing costs to between three and eight percent of the total loan they take out. For example if the cost of a loan on an Orlando home for sale costs $150,000 then the buyer should be prepared to pay between $4,500 and $12,000 for the closing cost.  The good news about closing costs is that the amount of money it is going to be will be set in stone. The lender of whatever loan you choose to use has to give you the various different closing costs and how much each one is.

Various fees that are including in the cost for an Orlando home for sale include but are not limited to purchase points, fire insurance, appraisal fees and prorations.

Purchase points are also known as “discount points”. Each point is equivalent to one percent of the entire loan. Using purchase points is a wise decision for anyone who is buying a house and planning on living there for at least fiver years.

The purpose of fire insurance is to protect the buyer in case they burn the house down. Some lenders may require the buyer to have a fire insurance policy.

An appraisal fee is the payment that is going to be made for a written appraisal by a certified person who determines what the fair market value of the Orlando home for sale is.

Proration’s is the different amounts of money that it is going to cost for property taxes, interest, homeowner association dues, insurance premiums, or the amount of rental income between the buyer and the seller.

The various costs that go into buying an Orlando home for sale can seem overwhelming.  During the process of buying an Orlando home for sale it is important to work closely with a real estate agent so that no major unexpected costs surface.
