What are home closing costs?
Home closing costs are the charges you pay for transferring the ownership of the property from the seller and obtaining the loan from the lender. As the buyer, you can pay the costs in cash or finance them in the loan, unless you negotiated for the seller to pay closing costs. Typically, home closing costs are between 2% and 5% of the home purchase price.
