Closing costs you should expect

There are certain ordinary fees linked to closing the sale of a house. These fees are often split between the buyer and seller, as noted in the sales contract. Many are universal, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in California to help guide you through the process.

Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, 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 describe in detail the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you are buying real estate in Los Angeles County, you'll 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 past experiences and is required to be within a tolerable range so you're not shocked when you reach the closing table. I'll be happy to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
