      Buyer Closing Costs

      Buyer closing expenses vary depending on property value and other factors. To get a clear handle on your closing costs, conferring with your land use attorney, realtor, lender, and your tax accountant are advisable, especially if planning a 1031 exchange.

      • Down payment.
      • Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) if putting less than 20% down.
      • Loan discount points & origination fees.

      • Flood certification fee.
      • Document preparation.
      • Property inspection.
      • Appraisal.
