Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also push for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're buying a house in Los Angeles County, you will 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 a suitable range so you're not surprised when you reach closing time. I'll be glad to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates of concern.
