Cost of a Loan

Calculating the true cost of a loan can be tricky, but we have answers!


There are lots of people working to make sure everything runs smoothly with your loan. This includes loan officers, title companies, and many others. To cover these loan & title costs, you’ll generally want to set aside 3% of the loan amount. Homes that cost over $400,000 usually cost less than 3% at closing. In either case, 3% is just a general “rule of thumb.” You’ll find that the actual cost depends on a variety of factors. We’ll walk you through the fees and help you find the true cost of your loan.

In addition to the 3% rule, you may encounter a few other charges depending on your situation.


These include:


Home appraisal:  +/- $500

Home inspections: +/- $400

Administrative fees: +/- $400
