Buying or Selling a Home

Financing a Home Purchase

What will I need for closing costs?

Along with the down payment, you will need between four and six percent of your loan amount to pay for closing costs, unless you are obtaining an FHA or VA loan. If you are obtaining a loan, the law requires the lender to provide an estimate of these costs at the time you apply.
