All residential real estate sales incurs certain costs. Buyers and sellers customarily share these costs, as the real estate sales contract specifies.

As you'll see below, many of the buyer's closing costs are related to the costs of getting the mortgage loan. At Tyler Home Mortgage, we are highly experienced in residential mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive report on mortgage-related closing 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 the "Good Faith Estimate" of your costs. The closing costs spelled out in the GFE are estimated based on our experience with mortgage loans, but costs often change by small amounts between the GFE and closing. We handle questions about closing costs every day at Tyler Home Mortgage, so don't hesitate to ask if we can help answer your questions.
