Allowable Seller-Paid Closing Costs


When purchasing a house, the seller is allowed to pay for some of the buyer's closing costs, but there are limits to how much the seller can pay.  Here are the maximum amounts the seller can pay for various types of loans:

Conventional Loans
  • Primary residence or second home with less than 10% down = 3% of the purchase price
  • Primary residence or second home with between 10% and 24.99% down = 6% of the purchase price
  • Primary residence or second home with 25% or more down = 9% of the purchase price
  • Investment property = 2% of the purchase price 
FHA Loans
  • Primary residence only (down payment does not matter) = 6% of the purchase price 
VA Loans
  • Primary residence only (down payment does not matter) = no limit

Getting a loan approved is easy - if you know what to do.  The Mortgage Experts know what to do!!!
