Anticipated closing costs

There are certain standard fees accompanying closing the sale of a house. These fees are often split between the buyer and seller, as dictated in the sales contract. Many are customary, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Pennsylvania to help show you through your process.

Sellers: As we get through the details of your sale, not only will I work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also campaign for limited closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're purchasing a house 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 shocked when you get to the closing appointment. I'll be willing to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
