  • Closing costs


    Closing costs are fees paid at the closing of a real estate transaction. This point in time called the closing is when the title to the property is conveyed (transferred) to the buyer. Closing costs are incurred by either the buyer or the seller.

  • Seller's points


    Seller's Points (or seller contributions) are lump sum payments (or finance charges) made by the seller to the buyer's lender to reduce the cost of the loan to the buyer. One point is equal to 1% of the loan amount. The payment can either be required by the lender or volunteered by the seller. Typically, this situation takes place when the seller is in a rush to sell the property or has had issues finding a buyer. These costs are non-recurring closing costs that are also tax breaks for the buyers.

  • Paid outside closing


    Paid outside closing (POC) is the fees or payments rendered outside of normal title insurance and underwriting fees due at the time of closing a loan. When acquiring a mortgage or refinancing, a lender or broker may show that an appraisal fee is POC because the fee is usually due at the time of service, prior to closing. For a $0 closing cost loan, this is often refunded to the borrower at the time of closing.
