Borrowers have numerous things on their plate when shopping for mortgages: from getting pre-qualified and pre-approved to trying to secure a good interest rate. One aspect of this research process that can ease the stress a little bit is a good-faith estimate, or GFE, provided from lenders to prospective borrowers. This GFE (or Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure Form, as Zillow notes it’s now often called) lists out all of the costs associated with obtaining a mortgage from a particular lender, including title charges, escrow, and attorney fees.
