Anticipated closing costs

There are certain basic fees accompanying closing the sale of a house. These fees are often split between the buyer and seller, as directed in the sales contract. Many are customary, 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 get through the details of your sale, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also push for limited closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you are informed of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're buying a home 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 previous experience and is required to be within a suitable range so you're not startled when you get to the closing table. I'll be glad to review the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
