WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Homebuyers may be cashing in on record low mortgage rates, but according to bankrate.com, they're paying a pretty penny when it comes time to close the deal.

A survey says closing costs are up 6 percent nationwide from last year.

On average, closing costs for buyers with good credit and who put 20 percent down will pay about $2,400 for a $200,000 mortgage.
