Sellers: As we hammer out your deal, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you are buying a house in Los Angeles County, you'll receive a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) 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 tolerable range so you're not stunned when you arrive at closing time. I'll be glad to go through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
