Many are customary, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in California to help lead you through your process.

Sellers: As we hammer out your deal, not only will I work to get the very best 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 aware of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing a house 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 previous experience and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not stunned when you come to closing time. I'll be happy to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem questionable.
