Although closing costs vary from state to state, some of the typical closing costs that Oregon homeowners might encounter include the following:

Payoff balance on mortgage – When a homeowner closes the sale on their home they will of course have to pay off the balance on their mortgage, home equity credit lines and second mortgages.

Payoff fees – If a mortgage is paid off early, the Bend homeowner may be required to pay a fee by their lender.

Liens – Before the sale can close, the homeowner will be required by the state to pay off any liens that are on their home from contractors, property taxes or court judgments.

More fees – One of the most common fees that a homeowner can expect to pay is a recording fee; this fee is required to show that all of the homeowners debts have been paid, if they owe money on their home.
