Florida Closing Costs

If you are planning to buy a house in Florida, you’ve already heard about closing costs a number of times. Closing costs are the sum amount that your mortgage lender incurs when administering the loan to you. In Florida, some specific items to expect on your closing costs include origination fees, processing fees, appraisal fees, survey fees, mortgage tax and closing attorney fees.

On average, closing costs in Florida amount to an average of 3.5% of the total loan amount. But that varies from one lender to another and from one state to another. Florida, being a high-cost state, you may want to get a real estate company that will help you reduce the amount of closing costs as much as possible – like the Moreira Team.

Also, note that the total amount that you will pay largely depends on where your house is located. For instance, the average closing costs in Miami add up to $9,422 for a $200,000 mortgage. The same value of mortgage attracts closing costs of $9,388 in Orlando and $9,409 in Tampa. The difference is mainly caused by varying costs of origination points and survey.
