Closing cost estimation

How do I estimate closing cost. I already closed on my lot, and purchased it. I paid title insurance, and now have builders insurance on the lot,b ecause it's in my name I have to insure property.

What other cost will I have, and how do I estimate. Thank you in advance

Contract Sale Price:   119,500

Credit Report                               22.50

Flood Certification                        20.00

Homeowner's Insurance            708.54

Settlment or Closing Fee           700.00

owner's Title insurance              400.00

Lender's Title Insurance              50.00

Lender CPL                                 25.00

City/County tax/stamp               159.57



Total                                         4700.00


I ended up paying $1000.00 in earnest money and I got something like $483.00 back at the table the MB made a mistake and hired two attorneys but so she may have cheated me out of $450.00 because the Sellers basically took care of my closing cost.  My Realtor told me the truth about the Attorney fiasco, so pay close attention to your GFE and HUD1 statement.  I received my HUD1 statement at the closing table.

Re: Closing cost estimation

My real estate agent and LO have both said that closing costs average to be about 3%-4% of the loan, as least in my area.
