About Closing Costs

"Closing Costs" are the fees which pay for various services involved when you sell or buy a house. Buyers and sellers negotiate the payment of these closing costs.

Many of the costs associated with buying residential real estate are associated with getting a mortgage loan. Since America's Money Source has extensive experience with closings & mortgages, we are closing cost experts.

Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)

Very shortly after you apply for a loan, we will provide you with the "Good Faith Estimate" of your closing costs. We base this closing cost estimate on our many years of past experience. It's important to note that while our GFEs are very precise, we can't always estimate your costs to the penny. We answer buyers' questions about closing costs every day at America's Money Source, so don't hesitate to ask if you have questions.
