Can someone please explain how these work? As I understand it, the sellers can contribute x amount of dollars towards closing costs (in our case, $5000). Now, I have been told that these concessions don't affect the sellers in any way, and the actual amount is rolled into our loan. So does that mean that the seller gets a check for $5000 at the closing from the lender? If this is not the case, then what exactly happens?

Someone please tell me if I am right...All this number stuff is making my head hurt... :-P
