Buyers can save on their closing costs with the 5 simple steps!

When you are purchasing a property, there are costs that must be covered before you can become the owner. These are known as closing costs and include things like application, loan origination, appraisal, home inspection, credit report, attorney, appraisal and survey fees. As the buyer it is usually your responsibility to cover these fees and costs.

The typical closing costs are 2% to 5% of the price of the home. That can be a large difference. On a $350,000 home that is the difference between $7,000 and $17,500. To find out what your closing costs will be you can use an online calculator. But these payments are often a key point of negotiation and the fees will vary by lender, so there are plenty of things you can do to save money on closing costs. Here are some tips.

1. Shop around

Mortgage rates are not the only costs you need to search around for when buying a home. It’s a good idea to get quotes from several third-party services for things like home inspections, surveys, attorneys and title insurance. Mortgage lenders will include a fee for these services on the good faith estimate, but you can ask for the opportunity to find cheaper options. This can be a great way to save money.

2. Know your locale

Location is very important in terms of the closing costs associated with your loan. As mentioned above, the amount you will be expected to pay varies greatly. While some may pay around 2% to 3% of a home’s price, some high-tax areas of the country carry closing costs around 5% or 6%. Different states have very different closing costs — some even carrying a flat fee for title insurance. This is why it can be helpful to ask around in your community or try an online tool to estimate closing costs instead of just assuming a number.

3. Negotiate with the seller

Take notice of cost estimates and work toward the best deal you can manage. The payment of any and all closing costs should be an important negotiation point between buyer and seller from the start. Depending on market conditions and the seller’s motivation or timetable, you may be able to arrange that the seller pays some or all of these fees.

4. Time the closing well

If you close toward the end of the month, you can avoid prepaid interest charges. Your lender assesses charges to cover the time between the settlement date and the end of the month to compensate the lender before you will be paying the “full” interest and principal payment the following month. Whether substantial or nominal, this cost can be significantly reduced by planning ahead and scheduling your closing toward the end of the month.

5. Perform a final check

It’s important to review closing cost forms carefully. If the fees have changed from the good faith estimate to the official documents that arrive three business days before your closing, ask your lender for an explanation. If you notice new or significantly higher closing costs, it’s a good idea to investigate and consult with a real estate attorney about your options.

Don’t get intimidated if this is a new process — with enough information and negotiation skills on your side, it can be possible to cut back on closing costs. Even taking into account these money-saving tactics, it’s important to include closing costs into your calculation of how much house you can afford.

Checklist for Home Buying: Evaluating the Interior of a Home

Shopping is shopping, whether it’s for groceries, a new computer, a car or a house. Making a list of what you want and need – and the item’s ideal features and benefits – helps make the process easier.

When looking at houses, with a checklist for home buying in hand, you avoid being distracted by the new surroundings and any staging the seller has done, and you can concentrate your attention where it should be: on the features you are looking for in your new home.

What to Include on Your Home Buying Checklist:

To avoid forgetting anything important when you view a home, make a checklist of the items you want to pay close attention to. Some elements of this list will be subjective and based on your specific wants and needs. Here are some ideas to get you started on your list:

  • Which appliances are included in the sale? How old are they, and how well do they work? Don’t be afraid to take a look at the inside of any stove or refrigerator included in the sale of the house to determine its condition.
  • Is there enough storage in the bathroom? Are there enough bathrooms for your family?
  • Are the closets large enough and designed for your needs?
  • How old is the house’s electric wiring? Are there enough outlets?
  • What type of floor runs through the house? Will it need to be replaced? Does the home flooring need any special care or maintenance?
  • Will the kitchen be easy to work in? Is there sufficient storage?
  • How old is the water heater, furnace and air conditioning system?
  • Are the windows energy efficient? Is the glass warped or crazed? Are there holes in the screens?
  • Will you need to replace or update the lighting in the any of the rooms? Many buyers don’t take the time to test a home’s lighting. Check the lights in the bathrooms and kitchen to ensure they meet your needs.
  • If you work from home, make sure there is adequate space for you to work efficiently and comfortably. Check to make sure there are enough power outlets in the room that you’ll be using as an office. If you work online, find out about Internet service in the area.
  • Double-check all of the homeowner’s improvements. Ask if they were done professionally and ask to see receipts. Call the improvements to the attention of the home inspector so that he can check them as a professional.

This check list is not a replacement for your Realtor or a trustworthy inspector, but it’s an organized way to rate each home.  In today’s seller‘s market, The Storck Team encourages our buyers to be hands on.  With a checklist similar to this one not only can you prioritize things most important to your lifestyle, but it helps you keep track of the homes on the top of your list from the bottom of it.

Viewing a home with an eye toward living in it takes a bit of imagination. Try to visualize the home with your furniture and decorative items. Use a measuring tape if you need to ensure spaces are the right size. Most of all don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions.
