Average Mortgage Closing Costs Down 7.4% Over Past Year

In welcome news for the housing market, CNN Money recently reported that the average cost of closing on a mortgage has fallen by 7.4% over the past year. As an example, at the end of June, a home buyer in the United States looking to close on a $200,000 mortgage with 20% down paid an average of $3,754. That’s $300 less than 12 months earlier. Apparently, the decline can be attributed to new federal regulations, which require lenders to be more accurate when estimating closing costs for borrowers. Read the rest of the CNN Money article

Turning to mortgage news in Colorado, Bankrate.com conducted a nationwide survey in 2012 of mortgage closing costs. Looking at every state in the country, Bankrate.com found that Colorado had the third lowest average closing costs for home mortgages. Based once again on a $200,000 mortgage with 20% down, Colorado closing costs were generally $555 less than the national average, coming in at $3,199. Great news for anyone buying a home in our state!
