Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, not only will I work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also push for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you are purchasing a home in Allegheny County, you'll be given a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's previous experience and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not surprised when you come to closing time. I'll be willing to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
