Sellers: As we hammer out your sale, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.
Buyers: If you are purchasing a house in Allegheny County, you will receive a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's past experiences and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not surprised when you show up at the closing table. I'll be willing to go through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
