Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also campaign for limited closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're purchasing a house in Los Angeles County, you'll 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 prior experience and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not startled when you come to the closing appointment. I'll be glad to go through the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates of concern.
