FHA Closing Costs

You should consider closing costs when you purchase a home through the FHA loan program. The FHA makes it affordable to purchase a home, which is why they allow you to finance up to 96.5% of the value of your home and down payment assistance. This allows you to purchase a home with only 3.5% down, and very few out-of-pocket costs are required to secure and close the mortgage loan.

The closing costs and fees that the FHA allows you to finance into your mortgage include:
  • Any attorney fees that are associated with the purchase of your home
  • The lender's loan origination fees
  • You may be eligible for a FHA loan if you have judgments against you if the judgments are paid prior to closing
  • Appraisal fees to determinine the value of the home
  • Inspection fees to determine the condition of the home and if there are any problems with the home that need to be fixed
  • Any deposit verification fees associated with the purchase of the home
  • Any costs associated with the title, including the title search and title insurance for the home
  • Any costs associated with preparing documents that are required for the mortgage loan and purchase of the home
