Closing costs up 8.8% on mortgage nationwide.

For example, origination, title, and third-party fees on a $200,000 loan average now $4,070, up from $3,741 average same time last year. Analysts attribute these increases to lenders having to do extra work in approving mortgatge loan applications as a result of increased scrutiny and tighter lending regulations.
