  • Residential Service Contract = $475
  • Escrow Fee = $300
  • State of TX Guaranty Fee = $2
  • Tax Certificate Fee = $50
  • Attorney Doc Prep Fee = $100
  • Courier Fee = $20
  • HOA Transfer Fee = $200 (If the property is subject to an HOA. This amount varies considerably from association to association.)
  • Survey = $400 (If you do not have an existing survey.)
  • Prorated Taxes = Varies based on time of year & tax amount. You are responsible for the property taxes to the day of closing. If you close June 30, you will pay 50% of one year’s taxes. Most homeowners escrow taxes. If this is the case, you will receive a refund of your tax escrow within 30 days of closing. This refund is typically greater than the amount you paid at closing.
