  Good Faith Estimate

The good-faith estimate is a report from your lender that outlines the costs you will incur to get your mortgage. It is based on the lender's typical loan origination costs for the area where your home is located. The estimate usually changes between application and closing, so you'll want to review your settlement form before the closing meeting.

The settlement form will list the actual amount of money you'll need to bring to closing. You'll need to pay your closing costs in the form of a certified or cashier's check because personal checks usually are not accepted.
