We perform home inspections in about 10 counties throughout Washington from Seattle to Wenatchee. Occasionally our clients call to book an inspection and are still a little confused about the inspection cost– who pays it, how much it is, etc. We did a little internet search and found a few closing cost calculators that may help the potential home buyer. The calculator we are sharing seems to have the most descriptions of the costs, but will only give you a rough idea since the costs are only estimations. For example, they estimate the cost of an inspection at $175, but our inspections start at $275…this is standard for a single family home. Condos may be less. Also, the appraisal fee usually starts around $300. A loan application fee will be added to the credit report for a combined fee of $75-$300. With all this in mind you can use the calculator to get an idea of the added costs associated with buying a home. If you have a good agent to walk you through the buying process then you won’t be blindsided with these costs. They can also help you negotiate fees that may be shared with the seller.
