Closing costs vs. median home price
In some states, closing costs make up just a tiny percentage of the overall cost of a home, while in others they put a much bigger financial bite on homebuyers.
Crossing data from the annual Bankrate closing costs survey with median home prices from Realtor.com, we've calculated how much closing costs contribute to a typical home sale in each state and the District of Columbia.
Our state-by-state ranking, from worst to best, shows how big a bite closing costs take in your state.
