Sellers: As we negotiate your deal, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you are buying real estate in County, you will get 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 acceptable range so you're not astonished when you get to the closing appointment. I'll be willing to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
