Closing Cost Survey

New York, Texas and Florida are the most expensive states in which to get a residential mortgage, according to Bankrate's annual survey of closing costs. North Carolina is the least expensive state for mortgage closing costs. Fees in New York City were highest, averaging $4,016. Houston came in second, with fees averaging $3,975. After that came Buffalo, N.Y., with fees averaging $3,845, and then Miami, at $3,683. Mortgage closing costs -- which can include lawyers' fees, title insurance and various taxes -- averaged $3,118 nationwide. Bankrate obtained quotes on closing costs to borrow $200,000 for 30 years at a fixed rate with a 20 percent down payment. The survey assumed the buyer had good credit and was buying a single-family house.
