We assumed (unless otherwise noted) that: closing costs are paid out of pocket; this is your primary residence and is a single family home; debt-to-income ratio is less than 30%; and credit score is over 720. The lock period for your rate is 45 days. If LTV > 80% PMI will be added to your monthly mortgage payment.
