Plan ahead for closing costs with a Britton Group expert
March 26, 2015 – According to recent surveys (1), more than a third of people shopping for a home are not aware of standard closing costs charged to buyers. For millennials, aged 18-34, more than two-thirds do not know about these costs. Closing cost charges vary from transaction to transaction, but are frequently between 2 to 5 percent of the total purchase price of a home, a significant cost for which to plan .
Most home buyers understand interest rates are a main contributor to the overall cost of buying a home, but an experienced Realtor can alert you to abnormal lender fees, keep you apprised of typical costs for a home inspection, and explain the local and state taxes that are part of a real estate sale to name a few! You can become better educated about these charges well in advance of your home search by using a Britton Group agent.
