When deciding to buy or sell a home, there are many factors to consider. Since there are so many decisions to be made it can be difficult to juggle them all in your mind – especially when you are new to the buying or selling process. But, there is one factor that many forget about when buying or selling a house: closing costs.

Closing Costs in FloridaClosing costs can be incurred by both the buyer and the seller at the end of a real estate transaction, and the number can often take you by surprise. That’s why it is important to have a rough idea of your closing costs before you commit to buying or selling a home.

According to the Palm Beach Post, mortgage closing costs in Florida almost match the national average. For example, on a $200,000 mortgage, Florida’s closing costs would be $2,180 where the national average is $2,128 – well below Hawaii’s $2,655 and New York’s $2,560.

With mortgage rates near record lows and Florida’s closing costs right around the national average, now is the perfect time to buy or sell your Florida home.
