Sellers: As we hammer out your sale, not only will I work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When 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 prior experience and is required to be within a tolerable range so you're not shocked when you get to closing time. I'll be glad to go over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
