All residential real estate transactions involves certain fixed costs. Buyers customarily pay these costs, as specified in the real estate sales contract, however, depending on State law the seller may be required to pay some of the closing costs. "Closing Costs" are the fees that cover the various services involved in the sale of a house. These fees are either paid out of pocket or indirectly by increasing the loan amount or charging a higher interest rate.

Many of the costs associated with buying residential real estate are associated with getting the mortgage. At Seattle Mortgage Brokers LLC, we are highly experienced in mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive report on costs related to your mortgage in your estimate.

The Loan Estimate details information like estimated interest rates, payments and fees, closing costs and more. This estimate is not an approval, but it's the first step toward obtaining your loan.
