About Closing Costs

Certain standard costs are associated with closing the sale of a home. Sellers and buyers usually split these closing costs, as specified in the real estate sales contract.

As indicated below, many of the buyer's costs are related to the costs of getting the loan. At Hancock Mortgage Partners, LLC NMLS# 229844, we have extensive experience in residential mortgage lending, so we can provide you with a comprehensive list of closing costs related to your mortgage in your "Good Faith Estimate".

Good Faith Estimates (GFEs)

Soon after you submit your application, we will provide you with a "Good Faith Estimate" of your costs. This cost estimate is based on the loan officer's past experience. Please note that while our GFEs are very accurate, we cannot always estimate costs to the penny. We field questions about closing costs every day at Hancock Mortgage Partners, LLC NMLS# 229844, so please feel free to ask if we can help answer your questions.
