This video overviews the categories of closing costs, and overviews the costs you should expect at closing.
We show you which category of costs you can control, and hopefully save some money. And we show you which costs you do not control.
Most of all, we tell you about the GFE (Good Faith Estimate), which discloses details of the closing costs. We also tell you about the cost that can’t change unless there are special circumstances, costs that can change up to 10%, and costs you control.
