    Who Pays for the Purchaser's Closing Cost?

    When someone buys a home, they will have closing cost to pay at closing. Depending what the purchaser has saved up, what type of loan he/she gets, how good the credit score is and how high a loan amount is all that is considered for the closing cost.

    Many first time home buyers may have only a 3% down payment and no or littlemoney left for closing cost. Closing cost is mostly loan related, to name some cost Interest rates depend on your credit scores, so does the insurance. If you have poor credit, you may be able to get approved for a loan at a higher rate and a higher down payment. 100% financing is available to buyers with good credit scores. It eliminates PMI or MIP (private mortgage insurance). We are knowledgeable about financing, so call us if you are in the market for a house. We have the right loan and lender contact for you.
