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

Sellers: As we hammer out your sale, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also push for limited closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully clarify the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you are buying a property 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 previous experience and is required to be within a tolerable range so you're not astonished when you arrive at closing time. I'll be happy to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that appear to be out of the ordinary.
