Expected closing costs

There are certain standard expenses linked to closing the sale of a house. These fees are often divided between the buyer and seller, as instructed 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 your transaction.

Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, I'll not only work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also advocate for limited closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you know exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you are buying a home in Los Angeles County, you'll receive 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 an appropriate range so you're not stunned when you arrive at the closing table. I'll be glad to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that appear to be out of the ordinary.
