The Closing is the point in time when the title of the property is transferred from the seller to the buyer. The Closing costs are incurred by either the buyer or the seller.

Typically, home buyers will pay between 2 to 5 percent of the purchase price of their home in closing fees. You can also avoid upfront fees on your loan by getting a no-closing cost mortgage, in which you don’t pay any of the closing costs when you close on the mortgage. home buyers can negotiate with the seller over who pays these fees. Sometimes the seller will agree to assume the buyer’s closing fees.
