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

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.
