Anticipated closing costs

There are certain standard costs linked to closing the sale of a house. These costs are commonly split between the buyer and seller, as directed in the sales contract. Many are customary, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in California to help guide you through your transaction.

Sellers: As we hammer out your sale, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you are informed of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you are buying a home in Los Angeles County, you will 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 prior experience and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not startled when you arrive at closing time. I'll be glad to look through the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem questionable.
