Quoting Mom of Tristan/Rayah +1:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Party of FIVE!:</b>" Nope, not always. You can have that agreement, ... [snip!] ... purchase price of what the closing costs will be."</blockquote> But why would the buyer want that in the agreement."
Because, essentially, you won't need to come up with as much money. You would be putting the cost of the closing into your loan. Then the buyer would take that extra money to pay for it. You're still paying the same for the house, you just added closing costs.
