-Escrow deposits for taxes these are your state taxes. They vary from state to state.

-Private mortgage insurance A lot of lenders ask that you have insurance in case you default on your loan. This insurance is usually one-half of one percent of the cost of the mortgage.

-Appraisal fees These fees go towards the appraiser who appraised the property. The home needs be appraised so that the bank can know whether or not the home is good collateral.
