Can You Negotiate Closing Costs

While buyers and sellers negotiate for purchase price its not unheard of for real estate buyers and sellers to include closing costs as part of their negotiations.  A limit is set in how much a seller can pay on behalf of the buyer and usually a home loan determines the maximum based on mortgage guidelines.  Make sure if you need help with closing costs to let your real estate agent know.  When buying a home usually a lender or mortgage broker will let you know the maximum allowable amount for closing costs that a seller is allowed to pay for the buyer and make sure you include that in your sales contract or purchase agreement.


There are certain closing costs that are prorated not only for the buyer but also for the sellers.  Prorations always occur for property taxes due to the fact that property taxes are paid at the end of the year that they are assessed.
