Sellers: As we negotiate your deal, not only will I work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also push for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll explain in detail the closing costs so you are informed of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you are purchasing a house 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 prior experience and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not surprised when you arrive at the closing table. I'll be willing to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that appear to be out of the ordinary.
