WHAT IS THE AVERAGE CLOSING COST ON $212,500 FHA LOAN IN FLORIDA?

Everyone says that the closing cost should be around 2-3% of the loan – Does that include the Estimated Reserve/ Prepaid Cost? The type of loan is FHA with 3.5% down which is $ 7,437.50.

Also let me know if you see any bogus charges that I can dispute with the Mortgage Broker.

Thank you!
