Many are universal, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Pennsylvania to help lead you through your deal.

Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also push for lower closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.
Buyers: If you are purchasing a house in Allegheny County, you will receive 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 a suitable range so you're not stunned when you reach closing time. I'll be willing to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
